The 8 Best Dividend Aristocrats To Buy In October

Published Tue, 01 Oct 2019 02:27:55 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

Due to reader requests, I've decided to break up my weekly "Best Dividend Stocks To Buy This Week" series into two parts.
One will be the weekly watchlist article (with the best ideas for new money at any given time). The other will be a portfolio update.
To also make those more digestible, I'm breaking out the intro for the weekly series into a revised introduction and reference article on the 3 rules for using margin safely and profitably (which will no longer be included in those future articles).
To minimize reader confusion, I will be providing portfolio updates on a rotating tri-weekly schedule. This means an update every three weeks on:
My retirement portfolio (where I keep 100% of my life savings). The best dividend Kings and Aristocrats to buy now (for four kinds of investing goals), including the best opportunistic buys based on F.A.S.T. Graphs. My new "What I'm Buying Next" series, which explains what companies are on my immediate buy watchlist from which I make all weekly retirement portfolio buys. I've also decided to remove the "Why Valuation ALWAYS Matters" intro to this series, since that makes it more cumbersome to read for loyal followers of this series.
