Update: Dividend Stock Picks for the Week of 1/28/13 to 2/1/13
I wanted to recap last week's picks for you since it is important to review all investments on a weekly, if not daily, basis. It was a 14 for 20 week70% of my picks increased in value. It was a great week to invest in dividend paying stocks for both the NYSE and NASDAQ. The market was very kind to those who invested earlier in the week. Continue to pick up dividend aristocrats on any pull backs and hold for long haul. I am a long term bull!

See below for more details... as well as some great videos pertaining to Airgas, Inc.(NYSE:ARG), which rose $3.25 per share this past week! Also, check out the 3 books shown throughout this post. Very interesting and educational reads!

DSIFTCM is NOT affiliated with any of these companies. I am not a professional stock picker and am only providing my personal opinions of some of the greatest dividend paying companies!

It is not how many times you win short term, but rather which investments can provide you with a steady income stream over the long term. When investing in dividend paying stocks you are protecting yourself from stock market volatility. If the market goes down one quarter, the dividend payment will help recoup the losses. Let these companies work hard so they can maintain their dividend and increase it year over year. As a shareholder, it is like receiving a raise each year. Reinvest your dividends to maximize your profits!

Keep investing as much as you can on a daily or weekly basis. Perform your due diligence and invest in companies that you feel comfortable with. Do not risk your hard earned dollars by investing in unknown, unreliable companies.

Always remember, YOU are in charge of your financial life. Do not let anyone tell you how to spend your money. We all have the knowledge and smarts inside of us. Make smart investments!
