35 Companies To Pay More Cash For Its Owners

The markets drive into panic while volatility is rising. Did you buy some stocks during the small sell-off?

I did but only one micro position. I still believe that the markets are too expensive and wait.

No, the world will not go down! That's something I can promise you whatever happens. If the markets falls he will one day recover because of the growing world population who wants to satisfy their desires.

The national monetary banks are printing money and they won't keep cash expensive. Everybody should be liquid and the economic growth and employment figures are more important than inflation, that's the key statement of the FED.

In general, I love it when stock prices fall because companies become cheaper and one day I can buy a high quality company for a solid price. Dividends and share buybacks are also two shareholder friendly activities about which I care.

I like to see that the company not only pays dividends to satisfy their shareholder, they should grow their sales, income and dividends as well.

All of this actions is only sustainable if the corporate structure grows, if the firm employs more people, sells more units at the same margin. 

I told you and my friends: Only a growing company is a good company and those will give your portfolio a raise when you haven't overpaid them.

During the past week, a few companies raised their dividends and announced a new stock buyback program. The biggest dividend growers are Goldman Sachs, Enterprise Products Partners as well as Texas Instruments.

On the share buyback side, 14 companies announced a new or additional buyback plan. Brown-Forman, GAP and J.M. Smucker are the biggest stocks on the list.

Big Dividend Growth And Share Buybacks: These Are My 5 Top Picks Of The Week

The week comes to an end and I like to show you the latest dividend grower and share buyback companies in this article.

It was also a hard week for short-term orientated investors because volatility rises due to topics like Ebola and a weaker European economy.

The Dow lost 2.73 percent within the past week while the S&P 500 was down 3.12 percent and NASDAQ down 4.44 percent.

You know that I have not sold any of my stockholdings. I'm not a fearful investor who sells his wonderful businesses and cash-in some money, pay taxes and waiting for new opportunities.

I like to make money with stocks by holding them over a decade or more. Only over a long period of time, companies can create value.

I keep my eyes on new targets which were very rare in the past because American stocks are some of the most expensive companies in the whole world but they offer also the biggest insurance for investors. 

The Dollar is a safe heaven and he still dominates the world. I keep my money into USD.

Within the past week, only one big company - Kimberly-Clark, announced a 2 billion buyback program. The next biggest program came from Liberty Interactive.

On the dividend growth side, twelve companies raised dividend payments. The biggest companies here were Kraft Foods and Plains All American Pipeline.

Many oil- and gas pipeline companies are part of the dividend growers list. Those companies have experienced a big boom by creating energy infratructure but they have also high debt figures, compareable with REITs or Telecoms.

Below are my five favorites from the week. I hope you like my selection. I personally own only KFT and KMB, both are consumer giants.

Compared to the dividend growth results of the past week, the numer of stocks is still weak.

7 Top Dividend Growth And Share Buyback Stocks Of The Week

As you might have noticed, my blog covers dividend growth stocks and companies with fresh stock buyback announcements.

It's not a real investment strategy but both are activities for investors.

You can find each week a list of all dividend growth stocks and share buyback companies on this site. It's the only source who compiles this on the internet.

Within the past week, only eight companies raised their dividend payments and additional nine stocks announced a stock buyback program.

Both are shareholder-friendly activities which could be helpful for normal investors like me and you.
Back to dividend growth: No large-cap stock was in the list of the latest dividend grower. The biggest fish in the pool was the insurer American Financial Group who raised dividends by 13.64 percent.

Warren Buffett Buys An Auto Dealer - Here Are 5 Top Dividend Paying Alternatives

Yesterday, news jumped into the market: The oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett the mastermind behind the investment holding Berkshire Hathaway, bought an auto dealer. What - Auto and Dealer?

Yes, Buffett acquired an auto dealer. He still owns shares of car manufacturer General Motors and adds a fully business from the distribution site. The company named Van Tuyl Group and generated sales of just under USD 8 billion.

Van Tuyl Group says it is the biggest privately owned auto dealership group in the U.S. It has 78 independently operated dealerships and more than 100 franchises in 10 states. The company will be renamed Berkshire Hathaway Automotive and be based in Dallas.


The deal comes amid ongoing consolidation in the industry. Publicly traded giants, including Florida-based AutoNation and Oregon-based Lithia Motors have been snapping up smaller retail chains, often run by families who have been selling cars for generations.

It also could be possible that Buffett buys the Van Tuyl Group in order to create a new channel to sell auto insurance policies.
I've also had some of my eyes on auto parts and car dealers in the past. The main problem was for me that they have no good diversification abroad. Most companies generate revenues in the United States but they have shown strong growth.

Below are five dividend paying alternatives from the auto dealership industry. Most of the industry members pay no dividends but for nearly all, double-digit earnings growth is predicted. If you like to follow my stories, please subscribe my blog news.

10 Stocks With The Highest Share Buyback Volume In 2014

I'm a big fan of dividend growth but I also like stocks that buy back own shares. By reducing its own outstanding shares, earnings per share could get a boot.

It’s the highest shareholder friendly activity that a company can make but also very sensitive because buybacks will shut down eelier than dividend growth.

Many companies from the S&P 500 pay good dividends and buy on a regular basis shares in the same amount. If you have a stable business model, you can easily do both without hurting your operational business.

Recently, the buyback numbers from the S&P were released and some financial research firms jumped on that data to create researches. I have read them and I want to share the best buyback companies with you here today.

Most of the stocks with the highest buyback volume in Q2 outperformed the market. These are the companies with the strongest buyback programs:
