CAT, MCHP, and MSFT
Among the many stocks on which I tried to sell calls today are these three: Caterpillar, Microchip Technology and Microsoft. I have owned them all for a long time. As a matter of fact, Microchip (MCHP) was the very first Dividend Machine I wrote about in late 2010.

Here is the MCHP call I sold today:
Microsoft is a good dividend stock. MSFT actually meets all my fundamentals. However, it is expensive. MSFT sports a P/E (price to earnings ratio) of 40. Note that AAPL has a P/E of only 10.85.
