9 Top Picks From Goldman's Dividend Growth Basket

Dividends are so important for income investors, especially when you reinvest all of your fresh dividend payment to fund new stock positions.

Overall, dividends will provide about half the total returns for equity investors in the next decade, that's a major guide each analyst tells you when we are discussing the dividend growth strategies.

Today I like to refer a great basket from Goldman Sachs, the Dividend Growth Basket. Each stock of the list has a median yield of 2.5% and is expected to increase dividends by 16% in 2015 and 12% in 2016. The basket has a price-to-earnings ratio of 15 vs. 17.3 for the S&P.

That sounds very interesting, right? Well let us look at the detailed results. Here are the best picks from each industry. Which do you like?

10 Of The Best Dividend Growth Retirement Stocks

While retirees often focus on income stocks primarily, investors can often achieve better returns by owning a diversified portfolio of defensive, growth and income stocks.

Dividend-paying stocks are great choices for your retirement account. Before you retire, you can accumulate shares with dividend reinvestment. And during retirement you can use the dividends as income.

Here are 10 dividend-paying stocks that are appropriate for a retirement account. Many of these stocks have multiyear records of increasing their dividends, which is important to keep ahead of inflation.

 Here are ten stocks retirees can consider for their portfolios:


7 Dividend Income Stocks Beating The Market Twice

I’ve found seven A-rated income stocks that are kicking off yields higher than the S&P 500 — and in one case, five times better than the S&P average. Plus, these income stocks have great growth prospects — they’re more than just income stocks and they make excellent total return plays.

The run the gamut from major financial players to real estate investment trusts (REITs) in key markets to telecom and retail to shipping.

But the one thing they all promise is above average total returns. Each represents a stock that has strong momentum in its respective sector, which bodes well for growth, and has a very respectable dividend given today’s low inflation rate.

The goal is to find stocks where their dividend yield outpaces the inflation rate so you are compounding the dividends over time, adding to your wealth. In many of these stocks you can also reinvest the dividends (depending upon your broker) so you can slowly, continually buy the stocks. 

Then, whatever growth you get from the stocks is an added kicker that goes straight to your bottom line. Here are the seven income stocks that should continue to grow:


8 Bargains To Look For In A Hot Market

Now, following a six-year bull market, the markets look like inflated valuations in traditional income areas such as real-estate investment trusts, master limited partnerships and utilities. 

The highest yields on the stock market are paid by telecoms, tobacco stocks, MLPs, REITs or other high debt-loaded or risky business models. But those yields are falling if you look at the Reynolds yield which was a few years ago over 5 percent is now close to the 3 percent ratio.

I've written in the past about stocks that might pay a higher dividend in the future. In my view, it's much better to buy low yielding stocks with potential to hike future dividends. Not only by rising payouts, more by growing the revenues and income.

I’m more of a dividend-aware investor than just a dividend investor, and I don’t own yield for yield’s sake.

Today I like to introduce 10 lower yielding stocks with a high potential to hike dividends. My main criteria are low debt, little payout ratios and future growth.

5 Cheap Stocks Guru Investors Are Buying

The P/E ratio is a strong indicator of whether a stock is a good value, and the lower the better. For this reason, many of the stocks with the lowest P/E ratios are broadly held by the investors.
