This Week's Big Consumer Good News

On Thursday's edition of Consumer Countdown, host Mark Reeth and Motley Fool consumer goods analysts Michael Finarelli and Sean O'Reilly discussed some of the big headlines that crossed their desks over the last few days.

One of those headlines was about LumberLiquidators , which had very strong earnings and raised its full-year guidance. Mark thinks that's pretty cocky for a company that just had its offices raided by Federal investigators, but Mike believes there's a good reason for the confidence.

After that, Sean discusses Lorillard , which continues to see strong e-cig sales. In fact, the company is now acquiring SkyCig, a U.K.-based e-cig company. Sean likes the idea, but doesn't think Lorillard's future is strictly in e-cigs.

Then, Mike takes a look at Six Flags , which had a great quarter. However, he doesn't think the next few quarters will be nearly as strong for the company. And finally, Sean talks about Skechers , and how despite the company knocking it out of the park this quarter, shares were still punished.

Did Lorillard make it onto the Fool's list of the best dividend stocks?

And over the long term, the compounding effect of the quarterly payouts, as well as their growth, adds up faster than most investors imagine. With this in mind, our analysts sat down to identify the absolute best of the best when it comes to rock-solid dividend stocks, drawing up a list in this free report of nine that fit the bill.
