Update: Stock Picks for the Week of 1/31/12 to 2/7/12

Posted on the 09 February 2012 by Divstkforcomman @DivStkForComMan
Welcome back to Dividend Stock Investing for the Common Man. Thank you stopping by and supporting the idea of investing in dividend paying stocks for the long term. 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. As you can see below, it was a profitable 12 for 16 week, however it was a roller-coaster ride. Some selections decreased in value while others had a pretty nice percentage gain for the week. SJM, KO, CVX and MCD were this past week's clear winners, however O had a great week. The over all net gain for the week of 1/31/12 to 2/7/12 was $9.35. 
As a rule of thumb, always invest in high yielding dividend paying stocks for your retirement years. Continue to hold on to your stocks for the long term so the dividends have plenty of time to compound. Feel free to watch the videos below featuring J.M. Smucker Company and Chevron Corporation. Both will inject your Roth IRA stock portfolio with stability and profits. Until next time, happy investing, reinvest those dividends and let your smart investment decisions work for you!
