7 Dividend Growth Stocks to Buy, Including Disney

7 Dividend Growth Stocks to Buy, Including DisneyA funny thing happened between Aug. 16, 2012, when Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) initiated a $2.65 quarterly dividend, its first since 1995, and today — Apple became a dividend stock. Since the company paid that first dividend, Apple’s stock shot up 233% and its dividend has grown by 115%, an annualized growth rate of 14%. A big reason Apple initiated its capital allocation program in the first place was to appease investors who felt its growth was slowing and it wasn’t returning enough money to shareholders through dividends and share repurchases.

Colorado baker: No cake for gender transition celebration

Colorado baker: No cake for gender transition celebrationA Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a gay couple on religious grounds — a stance partially upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court — has sued the state over its opposition to his refusal to bake a cake celebrating a gender transition, his attorneys said Wednesday. Jack Phillips, owner of the Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver, claimed that Colorado officials are on a "crusade to crush" him and force him into mediation over the gender transition cake because of his religious beliefs, according to a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday. Phillips is seeking to overturn a Colorado Civil Rights Commission ruling that he discriminated against a transgender person by refusing to make a cake celebrating that person's transition from male to female.

Why Pensions Are the Hot New Tax Shelters

Why Pensions Are the Hot New Tax SheltersTraditional pension plans are being used by some doctors, lawyers and other wealthy small business owners to shield hundreds of thousands of dollars in income from taxes, Bloomberg’s Ben Steverman reports, and new tax rules related to pass-through businesses are expected to make the plans even more popular. Guidelines released by the Treasury Department last week limit the use of the 20 percent pass-through tax deduction for some high-earning professionals, who will have to keep their incomes under $315,000 per married couple in order to claim the full benefit of the tax break. Defined-benefit pension plans provide a way to reduce income and, in the wake of the new tax rules, are especially attractive to older, high-income service providers who operate their own businesses.

Kansas governor concedes GOP primary to secretary of state

Kansas governor concedes GOP primary to secretary of stateKansas Gov. Jeff Colyer conceded Tuesday evening in the state's Republican gubernatorial primary, saying he will endorse Secretary of State Kris Kobach a week after their neck-and-neck finish threatened to send the race to a recount. Colyer accepted defeat in a surprise announcement after a review of some provisional ballots from most Kansas counties failed to find enough votes for him to overcome a deficit of 110 votes at the time of poll closing in the Aug. 7 primary, out of more than 311,000 votes initially counted. Kobach, who was endorsed by President Donald Trump, has seen his lead widen as the counting of provisional ballots continues into next week across the state.
