Weekly Reading LinksThere’s an adage in investing that stock markets always rally during a presidential election, and that markets perform well in the 3rd and 4th years of a presidential term. A few months dated, but interesting article on the topic Stock Rally During Election Years, gives an interesting view. With the beginning of October 2012, the U.S. dividend payers are certainly doing well, with companies having raised their dividend payouts, companies reporting solid earnings, and some share prices reaching 5 year highs. Is it a good time to buy dividend stocks, buy and hold, or simply stick with the plan?

It’s that time of the week again! Check out these great reads from around the web.
