2012 M* DIVIDEND MACHINE PORTFOLIO

Year End Update 2019



In 2012 I profiled forty eight stocks over the year using the four criteria that define my dividend income strategy.   The two differences between the 2011 & 2012 dividend portfolios are the number of stocks; 52 in 2011 and 48 in 2012; and EPS  (earnings per shares) measures.

In 2011 current quarter EPS had to be greater than the dividend paid.  In 2012, a stock must have had four consecutive quarters of EPS greater than the dividend.

See the results below.
