6 stocks with brand-new dividends

First-time payouts aren't always a good sign. But each of these companies looks attractive after initiating dividends.

Dividends are a good thing. Especially for the younger set whose timeline for collecting is longer.

Or the seniors who don't get jack from the bank anymore.

At the very least, they beat the empty promises of politicians.

Not long ago MSN advised us to hold AAPL, but now it looks like a buy again.  I'm glad they didn't scare me to bail @ $400 when one of the MSN cronies said AAPL had no future.

 

Compared to Google, AAPL is a bargain with its dividend.  You'd really have to have a lot of faith GOOG is the real growth stock of the two to pay almost double for less company.

 

I'm not rich enough to afford dividend paying stocks outside of my IRA, and it's quite interesting that the  worst performers in my IRA are non dividend paying stocks.  And I like to see the small paychecks on a monthly basis appear in my retirement tax shelter.  Forget about bank interest anymore!

 

Don't get too greedy with yields.  Anything over 7% is questionable.  Remember that return ON your principle is not as important as return OF your principle.

Dividend stocks are wonderful ! They provide much liquidity in your investment plans to either reinvest them or enjoy the 'fruits of your labor. Even though Apple was sliding last fall, we're recouping what we've added over the years through the stock buy backs & dividends. We'll keep our core investment in the company since I'm satisfied with the current managements running the day to day operations. We may reexamine this to see if Apple can continue to be a innovator in tech when Steven was at the helm. We like Dunkin donuts too; who doesn't like donuts ?
