2012-01-26 Dividend Update

Here are a few dividend updates.

I bought more shares of Emerson (EMR). I also bought some shares of ConocoPhillips (COP).

Eaton (ETN) announced that they will raise their dividend 12%.

I have started listening to the “Sound Investing” podcast from Merriman. One of the hosts has said a couple of times that companies are making dividends a lower priority, and that you should not invest looking for dividends. I generally agree with what they say, but I think that dividends are the way to go. I also think that companies that pay dividends are commited to paying them. Just tonight I saw the CEO of Eaton on “Mad Money”. He said that Eaton is commited to paying out increasing dividends year after year.
