Dividend Payout Ratios provide us valuable information on how much money a company is returning to shareholders and their ability to pay and increase the dividend. One of these ratios is far superior to the other.
The Dividend Payout Ratio and the Cash Dividend Payout Ratio are compared to find out which is better at providing pertinent information to differentiate between various dividend paying companies.

- One of his most popular books is The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.
- Truth be told, I only read Tom Sawyer so that I would have all the background for the Huck Finn, which I will read soon.
- I found the first half of Tom Sawyer pretty boring, but I'm glad I didn't put it down because the last half was extraordinary.

One popular approach to investing based on Benjamin Graham's methods is to use the so-called "Graham Number." There are some important differences between the Graham Number and the Graham Formula, but using the Graham Number is definitely useful even if the investor only uses it as a screening tactic.

The biggest fallacy out there is that each dollar reinvested by companies will automatically translate into more profits.
Unfortunately, real life does not work this way. There are issues with that. There is law of diminishing returns. There is the competitive nature of business and various physical constraints.

A photograph captures a moment in time. Seconds after the flash dims a tree could have fallen on the object of the photo or the sad looking man in the photo could have been told he just won a million dollars. In much the same way a dividend stock analysis is a snapshot in time, but the real question for the savvy dividend growth investor is 'where is the stock headed?' ...

One of the many questions I receive from readers relates to time spent managing my dividend portfolio. The truth is that I have multiple short-cuts, which I utilize to get the right information for me. The other truth is that I try to be efficient with my time.

Every week I go through the list of dividend increases, as part of my monitoring process. I monitor the dividend increases from companies I own, and for companies I may be interested in the future. I find it helpful to see companies that I have bought almost a decade ago, still delivering consistent annual increases. I also find it helpful to observe companies that have raised dividends for at least a decade. The rate of dividend increases shows how confident company executives are of near term business conditions.

There are income investors and Dividend Growth investors. While the distinction is rather simple, it slips past many casual observers. Income investors are investing for maximum current income, while dividend growth investors are looking to maximize income over an extended period of time — usually sacrificing current income for potential greater future earnings.

I evaluated 36 different companies this week to determine whether they are suitable for Defensive Investors, those unwilling to do substantial research, or Enterprising Investors, those who are willing to do such research. I also put each company through the ModernGraham valuation model based on Benjamin Graham's value investing formulas in order to determine an intrinsic value for each. Out of those 36 companies, only 4 were found to be undervalued or fairly valued and suitable for either Defensive or Enterprising Investors.
