look at the total returns against the industry index, its peers and the general market indices before jumping into any of these. DUK, for example, is a poor performer against its peers, the industry index and the S&P 500 out to 15 years and every period in between.

Also keep in mind the dividend is also already factored into it’s price. It’s not like you are buying a CD or something with a fixed return. Yes they can change their dividend payout, but more importantly the price of the stock can appreciate or depreciate. In other words if the stock dips 20% and you get a 3% dividend you’re still down 17%

I'm in the heart of Phillip Morris country and know a lot of people who like their PM and MO dividends.
I used to have both and did well with them, but I'm all in mutual funds now. No individual stocks in my portfolio

Russ, forget individual stocks. If you want dividend stocks, buy an ETF that is full of "dividend aristocrat" stocks. I.E. ones that have raised their dividends consistently for the last 25 years. SDY is one, do your homework.
Personally, I think value stocks will out perform growth stocks in 2018.. I also like the low volatility ETF, SPLV.
I don't know much though and tend to be conservative as i'm retired.

Dow and DuPont both have had a long line of good things going.
now that they merged it will be interesting where they go now

it dropped about $10 but is back up 5 today.
not sure what their dividends will be doing now

True on paper, but if you buying a stock for the dividend you are still getting the same dividend per share.

Just a word on DowDupont. Yes, Dow and Dupont recently merged and the combined company looks very strong. However, when that merger happened, former Dow stockholders got 1 share of DWDP for every share of DOW they held, but their dividend dropped by 17%. The next shoe to drop is splitting the new company into 3 separate companies. Look for that to happen before the end of 2019. Owning DWDP stock will get you shares of the new companies, but it's too soon to say how those splits will affect dividends, share price growth, etc.

Dang it, I had no idea that Vanguard had a dividend ETF.

How long have you had it? I will research it and see what I think. I may go half in the ETF & half in a few stocks.

Thanks for the info on the ETF.

APU has a tasty dividend!

Be careful with some of the high dividend equities. I have one that paid 8% for years, but they cut the dividend to 1.5% and the stock dropped 35% over the next 6 months.
