Update: Dividend Stock Picks for the Week of 4/1/13 to 4/5/13

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 11 for 20 week 55% of my picks increased in value. It was a nice week to invest in dividend paying stocks for both the NYSE and NASDAQ. Most of my stock picks increased in value. Now would be a good time to pick up these Dividend Aristocrats! Continue to pick up multiple shares these proven winners on any pull backs and hold for long haul. I am a long term bull!

See below for more details... as well as some wonderful YouTube videos pertaining to Realty Income Corp(NYSE:O), which rose $0.62 in share price this past week. O is a consistent investment which will provide great returns in the future. Check out the Realty Income Corp. videos below. Also, check out the books below. Very interesting 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!
