I have decided ti start investing in stocks for fun and I have decided I like dividends. Tell me your favorite dividend stocks. Trying to get some dividends up in this bitch. Also, is there a good reason I shouldn't use RobinHood so long as I'm not trying to trade options and other kid shit like that?

Okay EXCUSE ME. Excuse me very fucking kindly. APPLICATION? They made me submit an APPLICATION? Excuse me very fucking much but robin hood can pound sand. Asking me to apply to do business with you? They can gobble up a whole satchel of dicks. I'm taking my business back to OptionsHaus

Am I missing something or are both of those yields pretty low? If we're talking strictly apples to apples on yield here.

Well, if you're looking at current dividends, perhaps GAIN might be more your speed.

I'm thinking reinvested dividend growth with maybe 7-10 year reinvestment period followed by, in the case of the two I mentioned, dividend growth that should be at least a few hundred basis points above inflation.

bro how much blow do you do before posting?

don't have time to write a whole thing, but go for div growth instead of div yield, reaching for yield is a bad call

How come growth vs yield? The whole past performance thing?

historically, stocks with above market dividend growth are less likely to be value traps, whereas the high yield ones have you owning a lot of regulated utilities and telecom. while the income might be nice, the growth won't be and the income won't rise as much.

as an example, I like MSFT as a dividend play versus NGG or PPL

goldie, I took a look at your reply last night but for some reason I can't read it now. I think you asked another question about why div growth versus div yield. just do some research, there have been plenty of CFA/financial analyst journal papers on this that are in the public domain. the short answer is this: companies with above market dividend growth as a group tend to outperform companies with the highest yields.

there's nothing inherently wrong with buying stocks with a 4-6% yield, just know that there are tradeoffs, and historically those tradeoffs entail poorer long term performance. and this is not just a backtesting hypothetical, I've seen it with my personal portfolio, client portfolios, and other investment managers.

Not sure about their future but GE basically halved their stock price at one point. They also prided themselves on always delivering their dividend. So GE might be a good buy.

Others I've found: AT&T, RTN

I'm not huge into stocks though, and it's been awhile since I have researched them. I went other routes for diversification.

Apr 16, 2019

Curious about what routes you went if you're willing to share

I got supremely lucky in 2016 with crypto. I do not advocate anyone enter the space without understanding the risk. I put in 3k and at one point in 2017, I had over 1M in crypto. After doing some icos, I got caught holding coins without exchanges (places to trade them) and my portfolio is drastically down from that point. I took a bunch of cash out but man was it fun while it lasted.

Other things to look into: real estate, passive income (website, youtube, merch).

I'm on my way with YouTube to creating passive income and have a website with other things to sell. It's a grind though. holy shit do I work my ass off for little return, but things are starting to look up.

I own ATT - I may not soon, need need to parse through their earnings a bit more.

They are a prime example of what @thebrofessor is talking about in trade-offs on yield. Great dividend, but borrowed heavily to fund their massive acquisition.. now forcing them to look at deleveraging a huge debt pile, re-focusing their core businesses (which aren't, well, wonderful) and trying to grow, maintain CAPEX, etc. while keeping their dividend up.

Largely speaking though - they can probably keep the dividend going for a good while, but don't expect much of a return outside of that yield + or - a little bit over time if they can find some growth avenues.

Why not a dividend ETF and fuggedaboutit.

hard to argue against DGRO

Apr 16, 2019

Hey man could you explain this to me a bit please? The div growth vs. div yield thing is beginning to make sense. I'm reading "Looking for a Black Cat in a Dark Room" by Lenny Kisin and he's big on dividend reinvestment and shows how it can make a many-fold difference between not reinvesting given the same stock. He argues the theories that say stock price and dividend yield aren't correlated are wrong. Sounds logical what he says.

But I look at this ETF you mentioned - DGRO. Their div yield is 1.7%. So that's pretty low. But I see it's appreciated a bunch. since 2014 when it was started, I guess? Are you concerned investing in such a young ETF? So are you factoring in growth and dividend reinvestment somehow? If I never plan to sell anything and reinvest all dividends, how would I calculate my rate of return on this?

Yeah maybe. I like ETFs a lot. Got any good tickers?
