Weekend Reading 11/9/2012

Here are some useful pieces of investing content from around the web:

Dividend Growth Compounding versus Interest Compounding
Ken from Arbor Investment Planner showed the numbers on how powerful dividend growth investing can be.

Johnson and Johnson is Undervalued: Here’s Why
Dividend Growth Investor provides his case for why this well-known blue chip isn’t as expensive as it appears.

This Stock Has Raised Its Dividend for 56 Consecutive Years
D4L puts into perspective just how long this specific company has been raising its dividend without fail. Records look good on paper, like 25 years of dividend growth, 50 years of dividend growth, etc. But D4L explains that this stock began consecutively raising its dividend every year when Elvis Presely was making his first TV appearance, when Mel Gibson was born, and when Bob Barker wasn’t even on Price is Right yet. It’s a holding of mine, too.

Recent Buy
Dividend Mantra made two recent purchases. Find out what they are.

A ReBalancing Act
Andrew Hallam, the man who became a millionaire in his thirties as an English teacher by investing in index funds, explains the importance of re-balancing.

Recent Buy
Dividend Ninja made two recent purchases as well. One of them is the same as the one Dividend Mantra bought. I think it’s a good buy, too.

Reasons to be Optimistic about the Stock Market
Monevator wrote a rather epic post about being optimistic for decent stock returns. There’s plenty of good information in this article; not just opinion.
