35 Companies To Pay More Cash For Its Owners

The markets drive into panic while volatility is rising. Did you buy some stocks during the small sell-off?

I did but only one micro position. I still believe that the markets are too expensive and wait.

No, the world will not go down! That's something I can promise you whatever happens. If the markets falls he will one day recover because of the growing world population who wants to satisfy their desires.

The national monetary banks are printing money and they won't keep cash expensive. Everybody should be liquid and the economic growth and employment figures are more important than inflation, that's the key statement of the FED.

In general, I love it when stock prices fall because companies become cheaper and one day I can buy a high quality company for a solid price.Dividends and share buybacks are also two shareholder friendly activities about which I care.

I like to see that the company not only pays dividends to satisfy their shareholder, they should grow their sales, income and dividends as well.

All of this actions is only sustainable if the corporate structure grows, if the firm employs more people, sells more units at the same margin.

I told you and my friends: Only a growing company is a good company and those will give your portfolio a raise when you haven't overpaid them.

During the past week, a few companies raised their dividends and announced a new stock buyback program. The biggest dividend growers are Goldman Sachs, Enterprise Products Partners as well asTexas Instruments.

On the share buyback side, 14 companies announced a new or additional buyback plan. Brown-Forman, GAP and J.M. Smucker are the biggest stocks on the list.
