In this video, I'll show you 10 dividend stocks that I will continue to invest in throughout 2018. One of the greatest parts about dividend stocks is that they tend to be relatively safe investments. Over the past nine years, I have owned nearly all of the stocks I mention in this video.

If you get anything out of this video, let it be this:
Be wary of stocks that promise 10%+ annual dividend payments as there is a good chance the dividend will not be sustainable. This doesn't mean that every stock with a 10%+ dividend is bad, I just think it's important to understand whether or not the company has enough cash on hand to pay each of its shareholders.

Nate O'Brien got any groups
on IG yet? Great vid by the way, very useful info as well. I just started investing, not trading, and McDonalds was one of the first things I added to my watchlist. Regarding what you said about SuperSize Me and how that impacted McDonalds, I checked their timeline around late 2004 and while they did take a hit, prices onky went up since then. Again, I JUST started and thats what it looks like to ne (:
You really need to do more homework on these companies as investments. Yield is important but for a dividend stock, more important is the sustainability which includes factors like earnings per share, dividends per share, cash flow, long term debt, volatility, timing vs. the general market, etc. I will only buy a stock if its earnings exceed it dividend (a very conservative approach), preferably over a long time period. Even this can get you into trouble as bad management and changing investing climate can destroy great companies over time, e.g. General Electric, which may not survive its precipitous decline. Sears is another example of this. Your choice of McDonalds (MCD) is questionable; a 2017 Forbes article points out many negatives about this faltering giant (negative equity due to huge stock buybacks, increasing long term debt, declining sales which helped drive up the stock price and other important factors). Even stocks that have been paying dividends for long periods of time, like GE, can crash and burn if they are not careful. After I retired in 2012, I put together a small portfolio of dividend stocks that had the best fundamentals available that were earning an average yield of 4% which is what I considered necessary to sustain me through retirement. Of course, these stocks were purchased at or near the market highs. While most of the stocks in my portfolio continued to perform well in terms of sales and revenues, many of them have seen their stock prices have take big hits in the general market decline in the last year. You are right that lower yielding stocks are safer than those paying higher dividends. Your investing time frame is an important factor; the longer you have to accumulate your nest egg, the better your results are likely to be. The stock market cannot be trusted over a short time frame.
I’ve been binging on dividend videos and picking up stocks like popcorn.
If someone accuses you of pumping and dumping, just be like, “Hey, don’t bring your mom into this. I’m talking about stocks.”
But I have a moral compass. I won’t invest in oil companies, Coca Cola, or McDonald’s.
In times of war and real economic issues it was the entertainment industry that came to the aid of mankind. One could spend all day in a warm place and forget about the outside world. On 911 it was the entertainment industry that brought the world together.
As an senior Accounting and Finance student this is one of the few videos I’ve seen where the YouTuber actually knows and understands what they are talking about.
Other companies you should consider is
Merck is doing well now. GE???? LOOOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLLLL. No way. Down to $12 from $18 when you made the video. Should also discuss average annual dividend increases. Cardinal Health crashed from $75 when you made this video to $50 but it's up now to $54. I am going to buy it thanks to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks. Good dividend. However you forget the best dividend stock!! Microsoft; MSFT. And Avgo pays 3% doing better now. Check your cholesterol if you eat MCD. Ruth Steak House has done well also. DRI. You should look at dividend Tech stocks.
I am enjoying Forex/binary option trade now unlike before, i lost so much on Forex/binary option and stock trading because of some fake Account Managers but ever since i contacted Frank Robert as my Account Manager i can tell you that losing has never known my doorstep anymore, i am earning more than i expected in every trade i make.
Greetings I would like To start investing but I have a doubt if I am already matching whatever my a ploy Employer offers on my 401k and are you ready contribute to an Ira...do I have to open at taxable account in order to invest in individual dividend stocks? That would be better on the same broker or it’s better different brokers for differents kinds of account?
good video! Ive been recently looking into dividend stocks. My question is, is it worth while to invest in these stocks if you don't have enough for a large buy in? Im looking at starting small around the 1-2k range.
The guy speak the true ... you can be wrong with coca-cola, and general electric, also in every portfolio I will like to have clorox company as pay a nice dividend and is very stable, and Generali is an international Italian insurer that pay almost 6% very consistent during the years ... anyway right now I wait for a correction market is at least 50% overprice...
I don't have a lot of money but I'd like to invest in something that is low risk yet gives a steady dividend. I would like to do it to gain hands-on experience; something that costs $100.00 or less. What books or sites do you recommend so that we can learn how to invest wisely and not be bumpkins?
hey nate o brien, i think it will be good when you state a new company of the 10, you show a pop up showing the name and symbol of the company, it will be easier for your viewers to see and also might increaes ur engagement rate with ur audience! just a tip
Why is everyone so scared of Ford. 5.5 PE 5.3% dividend, Tesla is a little scary, but if it doesn't work out for Tesla, I think the Auto Manufacturers will get a bump and with Fords value, they could easily double their price and your dividend is still really good. Tesla is a little scary, but they don't produce anything that will give the other manufacturer's a problem yet and when they do all the car manufacturers will have something to compete pretty quickly. Tesla is valued at 50 Billion and Ford is valued at 40 Billion. I would pick Ford any day at that value.
Sean Ingram I own a bit of Ford and it’s nosed dived this past week. I think the stock is going to stay low for awhile as the have a lot of things to workout as a company but I think long term they will be fine. I will probably buy some more if it hits in the $7’s, I love the F-150 and a lot of people still do.
Nice list after all. I miss Pepsico though. I‘m bullish on both Coca Cola and Pepsico but in comparison Pepsico is the more diversified company at the moment and a dividend aristocrat just like Coca Cola.
My dad used to work for air products and for as small of a company I was surprised to see them here but I think this could be a good buy cause all the plants around where I live sell helium commerciay which is becoming a huge nessecety in the medical fields
People still buy the majority of the needs in stores. They walk in and buy what they want. As powerful as Amazon is it would require decades of investment to catch up and I am not so sure it will do this.
Amazon can keep mail order products down because of taxation selecting regions. That cannot be done with bricks and mortar.
Nice video. I agree with most of your companies. My only issues is McDonald's. I cannot justify investing in a company that has a negative shareholders equity. They have been funding their buybacks and dividends with debt. They have their own financial heart attack in the making.
i am a tad worried I got in to trading this month so got in quite high I am going to pull out this just is way too stressful for me. I am down over a grand in a few weeks and its just not looking hopeful bummed out
Since we vote with our money does ethics play a part when you select stocks? I repair water testing equipment so I wouldn't invest in any company that uses Hydraulic fracturing to extract oil/natural gas.
How do you separate ethics from investing... or should you?
Great info Nate. Thanks so much. I'm always on the lookout for good/ safe dividend paying stocks. I learned from Ryan Scribner's course how to calculate the dividend coverage ratio and that helps evaluate a dividend 's ability to pay it, so I can sleep at night! Lol ! 🌻💙 I own T in a DRIP! I know but I think T is still safe.
That was one of my worst mistakes when I first started investing! I would invest into companies who could not sustain their dividend payments!!!!!!! You are setting yourself up for great success with Ryan's course!!! 👍👍👍
how could someone possibly think your pumping. these aren't penny stocks these stocks take hundreds of thousands in volume to move a couple points. just crazy. keep up the good work dude appreciate the videos
