Happy New Year everyone, and I hope you had a great holiday!
On December 21st 2012, the world did not end, and the hype over Fiscal Cliff turned out to be a dud for bargain hunting dividend investors. Staying fully invested still turned out to be the right move. In the long run it just goes to show you need to stick with the plan, and not get caught up in media hype.
Dividend Growth Investor wrote a noteworthy article, Is Intel Corporation the Ultimate Value Trap for Investors? Many dividend investors have been drawn to Intel’s high yield and strong results over the years. However the tech landscape has been steadily shifting away from the PC market, into lower powered ARM mobile devices. Will Intel be able to adapt with its strong research and development, or slowly turn into a long and steady value-trap?
You will also want to download the new eBook from The Dividend Guy, Best 2013 Dividend Stocks. Mike covers the basics for 20 U.S. and 10 Canadian dividend paying stocks. The free download expires today, but it’s only $2.99 to download a copy. It is a helpful resource to start the New Year with. 😉
