Portfolio Pillars: 3 Dividend Growers for Enduring Wealth

Having reliable stocks in your portfolio will reduce your stress and can help you generate stable returns. Combine stability with dividend payments, and your cash flow can go up every year. Investors seeking long-term wealth can benefit from adding dividend growth stocks to their portfolios. These companies have lower yields than average but grow their dividends at faster rates than most corporations. Also, dividend growth stocks tend to appreciate more than high-yield stocks, and some even outperform the stock market. Let’s examine some portfolio pillars to consider for enduring wealth. Mastercard (MA) Source: David Cardinez / Mastercard (NYSE: MA ) is a leader in the credit and debit card industry. More than doubling over the past five years, it is up by 33% over the past year. Mastercard only has a 0.60% dividend yield. Not only has it outperformed many stocks, it also has an impressive dividend growth rate. In addition, Mastercard hiked its quarterly dividend from $0.57 to $0.66 per share, which is up by 15.8% year over year ( YOY ).

Billionaire investor Ray Dalio doesn’t think the stock market is in a ‘full-on bubble’

Bridgewater founder Ray Dalio said the stock market doesn''t resemble a "full-on" bubble right now. He acknowledged that the Magnificent Seven names look "a bit frothy." "[O] ne could still imagine a significant correction in these names if generative AI does not live up to the priced-in impact." Bridgewater founder Ray Dalio says he doesn''t think the stock market resembles a bubble. In a new note, the legendary hedge fund investor said despite the recent euphoria and rallies in the market , the landscape does not entirely meet his criteria for what constitutes a bubble. Among the factors he looks for are high prices relative to value, signs of unsustainable growth, naïve buyers piling in and speculating, and a large share of purchases financed by debt. "When I look at the US stock market using these criteria it — and even some of the parts that have rallied the most and gotten media attention — doesn''t look very bubbly," Dalio wrote. The S&P 500 has notched a string of records in 2024, and it''s gained more than 8% year-to-date.

Trump is scrambling to keep his fortune from slipping away

The two former Apprentice contestants probably should have known this was not going to end well. Andy Litinsky and Wes Moss had each heard Youre fired from Donald Trump during Season 2 of The Apprentice, and they could have left it at that. But they decided to try to get back into business with Trump, anyway. Years later, after Trump The Reality Host had become a twice-impeached former president under investigation for attempting to subvert democracy , Litinsky and Moss decided to go into business with their former boss. With Trump, they formed a company called United Atlantic Ventures and helped him build Truth Social , his off-brand alternative to Facebook and Twitter. Perhaps more than anything else, it was a business born from necessity: After all, both Twitter and Facebook had kicked Trump off their platforms. Last week, we got reporting that Litinsky and Moss are now suing Donald Trump. They claim Trump is essentially trying to cheat them out of their share of the company, just as its about to go public and potentially net Trump billions of dollars if he can sell his shares.
