Dividend Growth Investor wrote on How to choose between dividend stocks. He says, “I invest in several dividend stocks every month. In order to end up with ideas to purchase, I have a rigorous screening process. Basically I look for certain quantitative factors such as valuation, dividend sustainability, return on equity and historical EPS and DPS growth. In terms of qualitative factors I look for competitive advantages, products with lasting impressions in customers and ability to grow earnings and dividends.”
Chelsea Prescotti from CreditScore.net presents No-Preset-Limit Credit Cards Could Spell Trouble for Your Credit Score, saying, “If you are new or unschooled in the world of credit cards, you are more than likely confused, unsure of yourself, and more than a bit scared. And you have every reason to be, especially if you haven’t done your research. After all, banks and credit card companies are most concerned with their bottom line, and it is in their best interests that they set forth plenty of fine print that, they hope, you’ll skim over quickly.”
And my favorite post of the week is…..Parasite of Wealth by Roshawn Watson at Watson Inc. He talks about a huge problem in our society today – people go broke trying to look rich. They may succeed in impressing others they don’t know and don’t really care about but generally at the expense of their family’s financial solvency and preparedness WHEN the poop hits the proverbial fan.
