My latest screen although the data is a bit old since it was from the U.S.DividendChampions spreadsheet from end of December. Dave makes is easy to screen some of the best companies in the world that are dividend growers.

New to the list are WSM, RAI and SKT/PBCT.  Since Tanger is a REIT I included People's United Financial just in case I want to exclude the REIT from purchases.

Williams-Sonoma makes some great kitchen products.  I have this cast iron wok from our wedding over 12 years ago that still looks like new (and I use it!).  High quality stuff but expensive.  I can see why it might be having some difficulties as most people go for less expensive stuff.  If that is the case then why does Target always show on my list.  Sure it is not as cheap as Walmart but it's woks are half the price of WSM's.

I don't own any RAI but this might be the time to buy into that market.  A pack of the cancer sticks goes for $8 in my area.  Based on the smoke breaks I see people take at work that is a pack every other day.  But then again I read sedentary (like sitting at a desk all day like me) is the new smoking.  I am still working on my boss to get me a standing desk.


 

Well that is it for today.  Until my next post.

Later,

Dividend Family Guy

  1. Nice looking watch list. I think many have VFC on their lists these days. As prices declined and the yield was pushed north of 3% many have been buying. I also have ORI on my watch list but it has climbed quite a bit from its recent low around $16 a couple months ago. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Yeah it would be nice or ORI to drop a little bit more.

  2. Thanks for sharing your watch list. I'm long QCOM, RAI, and TGT. VFC has shown up in several of my monthly top ten lists. I've seen at least one buy of VFC. Take care and happy investing!
