My Favorite Dividend Stock Picks For 2012

Best Dividend Growth Shares For 2012 by Dividend Yield - Stock, Capital, Investment. Last year I made a list of companies with interesting equity stories I love to buy (Here is the link: 25 Top Dividend And Growth Stock Picks For 2011). One year later I reviewed these stocks. They have an impressive year to date performance. The average portfolio generated an average equal weighted return of 12.35 percent without dividend payments. At the beginning of the year, the yield of the portfolio was 3.15 percent. So, the total return of the picks should be around percent 15.5 percent. Not bad if we regard the return of the Dow Jones (5.53 percent), the Standard & Poor’s Index (0 percent) and the year performance from NASDAQ Composite (-1.8 percent).

Here is the performance review from my 2011 picks:
