Dividend Stock Recommendation Changes

We are making a couple of changes to our recommended list this morning.

Name Being Removed
Ferrellgas Partners L.P. ( FGP ) - this was an "Aggressive" high-yield play that we recommended recently. We prefer investors not put any new money into the company at this time as we reduce some of our new capital exposure on the aggressive side (in this particular case this L.P. has one of the smaller market cap sizes on our list and we prefer the larger L.P. players for any new capital). There is no fundamental change in the company that warrants investors trimming any existing positions at this time. As always, we urge investors to follow a strict sell discipline and examine a name closely whenever the stock price drops 25% from its 52-week high (this isn't the case with FGP, which is only about 5% off its 52-week high right now). Remember "Aggressive"-coded stocks can sometimes spend a relatively small amount of time on our "Recommended" list.

Name Being Added
Dr. Pepper Snapple Group ( DPS ) - with all the takeover buzz in the markets, we think this company offers an interesting risk/reward scenario, coupled with a near 3% dividend yield to give you some cushion on any selling.
