Ford (F) (I know, I know...)
#1
Ok, so I know that Ford generally is on nobody's list of dividend growth stocks. It is a cyclical company that stopped its dividend during the financial crisis, and only reinstated in 2012.

But I bought a few shares in 2012 right when they did start the dividend back up and all I can say is so far so good. 20 cents per share in 2012, 40 cents per share in 2013, and just announced a 25% raise to 50 cents per share in 2014 (from 10 cents quarterly to 12.5 cents quarterly).

Go Ford!

Obviously I am biased and love Ford as a company.(although not as an investment) Do you think they will be ok when Mulally retires soon? He's really turned the company around.

F has been on my list and I agree that it looks attractive. I just haven't been able to find room to add it so far and the cyclical nature has kept me away as well.

I hold a significant amount of Ford. I bought in 2009, and got out with about a 75% gain in 2011. Then I bought back after a sell off, and have been holding and adding since. I'm enjoying the dividend increases!

We have F and as soon as GM announced their dividend at close to 3% we bought GM.

I must be correct because some "growth" analysts aren't happy Big Grin

Then I read this:

Future of GM Dividend

"Buy American".....unless it's a 2000 Jetta TDI (195,000 miles, 46-50 mpg...still running strong)

As I think I've said elsewhere, I'm not sure that I'd buy F at today's prices. Maybe. But at $9.00 per share, real earnings, and the new Fusion just released, it felt like a pretty safe buy!

Nice boost from Ford today!

DEARBORN, Mich.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

The Board of Directors of Ford Motor Company declared a first quarter dividend of $0.15 per share on the company’s outstanding Class B and common stock.

This dividend represents a 20 percent increase from quarterly dividends paid in 2014. This increase is consistent with the company’s capital strategy of financing its plan, further strengthening its balance sheet and providing attractive returns to shareholders.

The first quarter dividend is payable on March 2, 2015 to shareholders of record at the close of business on Jan. 30, 2015.

I don't think we ever saw $9.00 in 2014 and I doubt we will see it in 2015. What price did you get in at?
