PPC Ian is YouTube's #dividend #growth #investing channel! In celebration of 25,000 dividend subscribers, I am answering 25 stock market questions. With 17 answered so far, today's video answers the next three! And, with 30,000 subscribers around the corner, I'll queue up another 30 questions to celebrate! Get ready for another exciting dividend investing video.
QUESTION 1: As a dividend investor, why would someone invest in stocks like DIS that have a lower yield than inflation? (Without taking into account its growth just as pure dividend.)
* DIS $132.79 price per share
* $0.88 dividend (2x/year)
* Dividend increased from $0.84 to $0.88 or 4.8%.
* Comparing 2018 vs. 2013, the dividend doubled.
* Disney is a stock for the VERY long term. If someone is looking to pay bills via dividends within the next 5-10 years, DIS is probably not the best stock, in my opinion.
* In today's video learn about the spectrum of dividend stocks and how one's timeframe for tapping into passive income greatly influences which stocks may make the most sense.
QUESTION 2: Hey Ian, what is your opinion on Nokia stock? I think it has some great upside potential with its 5g innovations, and it also pays out a great dividend.
* Nokia is now trading at $5.12/share. It was at $39 in 2007 and $55 in 2000. While I don't invest for capital appreciation, I do use it as an indicator of a well-managed company.
* Nokia's long term performance is a real concern for me.
* Personally, I prefer to invest in category leaders. When it comes down to AAPL vs. NOK, I prefer AAPL.
* Now, I do sometimes invest in companies that lack long term "up and to the right" charts. Two examples covered in today's video include BP and RDS-A. The difference, however, is they do not have abysmal charts. And, I'm able to lock in tremendous yields on cost.
* In the case of BP, I'm yielding 8.3% on cost (on my best tranche from 2015).
* In the case of RDS-A, I’m yielding 7.8% on cost (on my best tranche from 2015).
QUESTION 3: You're awesome Ian! Love what you do for the community! My wife and I wondered if you ever took your ad revenue and invest it into dividend stocks?
* Watch today's video to learn great insights on this question!
