I have spent the greater part of the past two days looking for solid technical signs of bullish candidates to add to our drip portfolio, but have yet to find anything that is convicting enough to jump on. However, I have found four candidates that are worthy of watching based upon their point and figure price objectives, dividend payouts, and the fact that their charts have not completely fallen apart over the past month or two.

Sunday, April 4, 2004 | By Nich Sheldon
I have been watching this week's Drip candidate for quite some time now, but I can wait no longer. Time is wasting away, and entry points are hard to come by in this market of uncertainty. Waste Management Inc (WMI) has finally broken over the top of its five-month resistance of $30.00. On top of that they have 12 major brokers covering their stock, and all of them have a "neutral" to "strong buy" rating. Not to mention a hefty dividend yield of 2.46%.

This week's Drip of the week is Flowers Foods (NYSE:FLO). The stock has been trending in an upward regression channel since January of 2003 and is currently idling in the middle bar of this channel. News supporting the stock has been upbeat and their financials continue to improve.

Bow DOWn
Friday, February 13, 2004 | By Nich Sheldon
The market has turned around this week, sparking a bullish rebound in a time of uncertainty. In all actuality the fluctuation in the market is just further proof of how unpredictable the market truly is. Friday's sell-off wasn't unjustifiable; after all, we saw new highs on the INDU and the SPX just two trading sessions ago.

The MAC Daddy of Dividends
Friday, January 23, 2004 | By Nich Sheldon
This week's Drip of the week is poised for higher ground, and the good thing about it is that there is no fees to auto reinvest in the stock. The company accepts foreign accounts, and allows temper enrollment and does not charge a dime for either of these added incentives.

No Holding Pattern Here
Friday, January 16, 2004 | By Nich Sheldon
My, oh my, what a wonderful week it has been. Bulls and bears are still confused as to which way the market is going. Momentum traders are at a loss because of the seesaw action in momentum swings. Option traders, who were expecting to see the normal January sell-off, are still forking out cash on their bearish entries.

Now that 2004 is drawing nearer, its time to zone on the stocks that have really taken off this year. Speaking of taking off, this week's Drip of the Week was one heck of a comeback story over the past year.

Remodeling season might be over for 2003, but 2004 is just around the corner. With so many shows like Trading Spaces, Design on a Dime, and House Rules, do-it-yourself home improvements have taken charge of this Drip of the Week.

Making Heads Turn
Friday, December 5, 2003 | By Nich Sheldon

Just Drip It!
Friday, November 28, 2003 | By Nich Sheldon
Looking at the title alone, I wonder how many people knew that this week's Drip of the Week was Nike (NYSE:NKE)? I mean you have to admit it ties in nicely with their Just Do It! slogan. Now I confess, while the title is clever, there is far more to Nike than a catchy slogan.

Over the course of the past few years, American's have taken several steps to heighten security and once again make America a safe place to live. Heck, just over the past month we have seen terrorist alerts tanking foreign markets, thus leading to the further sell-off of US indices.

No matter where you're from there is generally two days a month that most people look forward too.

Back to School Profits
Friday, August 22, 2003 | By Nich Sheldon
Ahh the first few weeks of school are underway and Mommies and Daddies across America are all being asked this question, "When can I go back to school shopping." You see, most kids know that there is one time a year (besides holidays) that they can hit their parents up for clothes, and this one time is usually right when school starts. Back to school means back to profits for J. C. Penney Company (NYSE:JCP).

Mining for Gold

Always Retail Orientated. Always.
Friday, August 1, 2003 | By Nich Sheldon
It would seem that DRIP investors are always on the prowl for a DRIP that is low in cost, meaning that the stock is at a low premium and that it has a high potential for gaining profits in the long run. One company that seems to always meet or beat its earnings estimate is Wal-Mart (WMT).

When it comes to finding companies that offer dividend reinvest plans, one may come to find out that it is not that difficult. The fact is, numerous companies do offer drips and because of this narrowing down the search of which companies look like top prospects for profits - as opposed to say just randomly picking a ticker that sounds interesting - can be very time consuming and tedious.
