My 19 Best Dividend Ideas For 2020

Published Mon, 24 Feb 2020 10:33:27 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

I spend thousands of hours each year maintaining the Master List, a database of over 400 of the best dividend stocks worth owning at the right price.
This allows me to screen for the best companies for my needs, which are focused on generous, safe and growing dividends, as well as high margins of safety.
Right now I have limits set to buy VIAC, MDP, ET, CCL, MPLX, UNM, BMY, FL, EPD, CMA, OZK, PII, AAN, SPG, and IIPR at ever more attractive prices.
These companies average a 5.0% yield, 9.0 forward PE, and a PEG ratio of 0.9.
In a pullback, I'd add AMZN, CAT and LOW to this list and chase all 19 stocks to bottom with limits per a reasonable plan I've created. The average yield on these 19 companies is 4.7%, the average PE is 10.4, and the average PEG 0.91.

All 16 Companies I'm Targeting For My Retirement Portfolio Right Now
This is a hybrid article, both a source of actionable ideas to consider but also highlighting my overall long-term investing strategy.
My retirement portfolio has one overarching goal. To allow me to live off 50% of post-tax dividends while raising a family as large as five. I don't actually plan to stop working (just work four days per week at this current job I love), but that is my definition of financial independence.
In order to achieve that goal, I have four key portfolio stats I'm targeting.
portfolio yield of 3% to 6% long-term dividend growth 5% to 10% CAGR weighted quality score: 9+/11 blue chip vs 7.0 average S&P 500 company and average aristocrat 9.7 weighted dividend safety score: 4+/5 above-average vs 3.0 S&P 500 average and 4.7 aristocrat average My method is inspired by the greatest investors in history.
Specifically, my mantra of "quality first, valuation second and prudent risk management always" is based on what I call the three patron saints of sound long-term investment strategy.
