New Life and What I’m Reading

It has been a big week for me personally as my wife and I welcomed our new baby girl into the world. Both mom and baby are doing very well. While I’ve been very busy with the day to day changes I’m still trying to stay on top of my dividend reading so here is a look at what I’ve been paying attention to this week. Value is becoming a loud topic among many investors.

Could Apple move 20% higher? As an Apple shareholder I certainly hope so. Over the long term I am expecting many things to work out for apple but if this Comcast deal happens and sends the stock higher I will be smiling. The company will need more than larger screens to keep things moving.

Jeff Macke lists 3 stocks that can keep moving higher in this bull market. 2 stock on this list (UTX, JCI) are dividend-paying stocks.

As we all know it is tax season. One of many things I hate about taxes is AMT. Here are 4 ways you can help yourself avoid paying AMT.

Dan Strack gives a list of 6 dividend stocks that should be at the core of every income investors portfolio. There are some great long term picks here.

Do you ever consider buying Intel? I sold my shares of INTC a long time ago and haven’t looked back. The Motley fool has a post that will help you decide if this stock is right for you.

Is there any value out there? Value investors are struggling with many premium valuation we are seeing in the market. The integrator highlights a few options worth considering.

DivGro bought shares in Meredith corporation. This stock has been on my watch list for a while.

    Great collection of links, Zach.
    Im amazed you are finding the time to stay updated with the new addition to the family 🙂

    Best wishes

  2. Congrats again on the new baby girl and I’m glad that both are doing well. Thanks for the links and it’s looking like I’ll finally be selling out of my INTC position. I’ve got a call expiring tomorrow that should get executed so that’ll be a bit more ammo for my arsenal.

  3. Congrats Zach. I think this was a great week to have a baby. Of course I’m biased, because our little one was born this week too. When we get a little down time, I’ll check out your links. I haven’t followed those sites
