This month I bumped my DFG screen down to include any dividend over 2.8% and it picked up an old favorite of Cracker Barrel Old Country.  In case they don't look appealing though I included an extra so the list is 11 long.  VFC continues to take a beating (even today when the market was up).  Still a solid company with 44 years behind it of increasing dividends. 

EAT is a clever name and the first time I have seen it.  Brinker International has the Chili's and Maggianos restaurant brands under it.  The first time I went to a Maggianos a few years ago I thought it was not a chain restaurant.  It was more expensive and the food was decent.  Now I am seeing them more and more.  I will have to drive by Chili's more often and see how busy they are during prime times.



 

I have my old 401k rolled over to my IRA now and have some extra cash to invest.  If I end up purchasing any of these I will be long on them.

Have a good weekend,
Dividend Family Guy

  2. Hi, DFG!

    I'm starting read you site just now. Very interesting. Despite I'm more interesting in ETF, I also want to study some good stocks to invest, but the problem is the tax that I have to pay in Brazil, 30%. It´s too much for me as in Brazil I don't pay tax in dividends.

    I also have a blog but it's in Portuguese www.buscandooprimeiromilhao.blogspot.com.br

    Nice to meet you

    1. EFT's are more hands off and a good DGI portfolio will outperform them over time. However if that is your style there are several good articles on Seeking Alpha covering the best dividend growth EFTs.
      Cheers,
      DFG
