Pass On Stanley Black and Decker

In my June 9, 2022 Pass On Stanley Black and Decker guest post at Dividend Power, I present why investors would be wise to look at other potential investments.

Although its:

  • dividend has increased for 55 consecutive years;
  • dividend yield is ~2.76% (based on a ~$116.60 share price when I composed this guest post);
  • valuation is attractive; and
  • shares are trading near a 52-week low

investment decisions based on a company’s dividend metrics and/or on a company’s stock price relative to historical levels are ill-advised. Investors would be wise to look at an investment’s TOTAL potential return. While dividends do contribute to an investment’s return, they are often a small component of the overall return.

Final Thoughts

I have been adding to existing positions in companies that offer the potential for superior total long-term investment returns. Posts regarding such companies are found in the FFJ Archives.

I wish you much success on your journey to financial freedom!
