How do you choose or better yet how does any one choose which dividend stock is right for them? Of course there is no one right answer to this question because every investor has a different agenda. Everyone has different needs to be met before they start picking dividend stocks. There is always going to be one best way to pick dividend stocks for every one. While you are thinking of yours... Let me tell you how I pick my Dividend Stocks. First they have to have been in business for a minimum of 10 years and have consistently increased their dividend payouts for 10 years also. These 2 rules cut herd down quite a bit. But... there is more. How about a half a million shares being traded every day, so there is plenty of liquidity... that's a good point too. I like to get to my money when I need to. Options are nice, they give me more streams of income if I so choose to write some covered calls. Lastly I want to know how the stock price was effected by the dividend's Ex-date over the last 10 years. This will allow me to capture some dividend checks and move on to the next dividend stock. That strategy is better known as Dividend Capturing and that has been around for over 400 years. That is why I use it to trade and to teach
