Holiday Dividend Stock Investments

Posted on the 23 December 2011 by Divstkforcomman @DivStkForComMan
Well it's that time of the year again.. Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa. All of these holidays include purchasing gifts for your loved ones, co-workers, etc. The 2011 holiday shopping season is wrapping up to be bigger than most predicted. Sales from November through this past Saturday rose 2.5%, compared with the same period a year ago. Online shoppers have spent almost 32 billion dollars online for the holiday season so far, a 15% increase from a year ago. The increases are good news for retailers.
This is the most important time of year for retailers. They can make between 25% and 40% of their annual sales in the last two months of each year. According to the National Retail Federation, this holiday season, stores are expected to ring up 469.1 billion dollars. Get yourself a piece of that pie! You cannot have yourself a merry little Christmas without picking up some of these great retail stocks (see below). Some of which have a dividend yield over 2%, which make them a classic Dividend Stock Investing for the Common Man's dream! These retail winners pay you to wait throughout the year with a healthy dividend yield. Once the holiday season arrives either sell off some shares to reap the profits or continue to hold. Instead of buying something you don't need with money that you may receive from a loved one, why not invest those residual funds into one of these stocks, which will fill out your retail/consumer spending sector of your Roth IRA quite nicely.
In conclusion, when you walk into these stores feel proud that you own a piece of the company! Until next time friends, reinvest those dividends within a Roth IRA and hold for life! Happy Kwanzaa and Hanukkah and have a very Merry Christmas! Feliz Navidad! Feel free to check out the videos below.
