From the article,
This one seems straightforward?: Conagra Foods (NYSE - CAG). This bad boy is paying a little over 5%, has been raising dividends for at least 10 years, and seems to be poised for rediscovery by investors. With a price of $21.12, a p/e of around 14, the stock is at a lower valuation than others in its industry group (Univelever, Kraft, Danon, ADM).
Donaldson Capital: Rising Dividend Investing: Wells Fargo on the Move
BTW, some WFC basics -- roughly 15 p/e and a dividend of over 3%. Pretty typical stats for a large banking firm.
Hey, if the dividend tax rate of 15% is ended that is gonna cost all us dividend investors twice -- higher taxes and potentially lost value. Get involved in the fight because there is no guarantee that the morons on the Hill are going to renew the low tax rate thru 2010.
I've always liked Vermont (it has nothing to do with H. Dean). In fact, Green Mountain Coffee is really tastey as is Ben & Jerry's.
I have been looking Trust Street Properties (NYSE - TSY) for a while now and am about to pull the trigger on some shares. Not only is it yielding just under 9% (under $15 a share; paying $1.32 a year), but there is a huge bonus. This REIT pays monthly!!!! That's right. You get some cash in hand (or dividend reinvestment) each month. That is huge. BTW, check out the dividend history since 1986, looks pretty fattening huh?
An oldy, but apparently a good payer... Tupperware Industries (TUP - NYSE) is yielding over 4% right now (4.11 as of Friday's close) and is trading at a p/e of around 15. Looks like a good buy. It has been beaten up a bit lately because of poorer earnings. But, this may just be the time to buy it. More than 4% is a pretty strong payout for consumer products.
Don't know much about propane gas -- I think lots of people outside of large urban areas/major metropolitan area depend on propane. I used to spend a lot of time in Northern Wisonsin and propane tanks were all over the place. Some little grills use popane also and yuppies head to home depot and others to fill their tanks.
Well here is a national propane dealer! Suburban Propane Partners, LLP. (NYSE-SPH) It has about 1,000,000 customers according to the profile on Yahoo!..
