I am an individual investor. Became interested in dividend growth investing and managing my own portfolio through my reading adventures at Seeking Alpha. I've learned a ton from everyone who contributes and comments here. Still have a long way to go even though I'm semi-retired and drawing Social Security.
Relatively new to investing in individual stocks; previously used mainly mutual funds. Interested in dividend growth investing, with a goal of eventual income replacement. Enjoy learning, particularly when it comes to growing and preserving wealth, and am very appreciative of the many within the SA community who are willing to share both knowledge and experience.
Light trader interested in dividend growth stocks. I own every S&P dividend aristocrat, and then some. The aristocrats form the foundation. I have ownership of more companies that I have placed on that foundation. I have several general rules about stocks. Rule #1: Do not buy a stock to sell it. Rule 2: Do not sell a stock you bought. Rule 3: If I am unsure if I should sell a stock, see Rules 1 & 2. Rule 4: If I really am going to sell a stock (fundamentals change, dividend frozen or cut, etc.,), then just sell it and do not look back. Rule 5: no foreign tax withholding (I do not want the money back later, I want it re-investing now, There are plenty of US and British dividend companies) and Rule 6: drip. drip. drip.
I am in equipment sales in industrial and laboratory markets. As I am getting within 3 years or so from retirement I am shifting from focusing on growth to generating income. I do not reach for yield, preferring a mix that allows for solid growth of the income stream and capital appreciation. I have built a diversified portfolio of solid dividend paying companies who grow their dividends at a rate beyond inflation with 80% of investable assets. I also maintain a growth portfolio of 10% of investable assets.
65 year old retired physician living almost exclusively on dividends. Don't like the way we are sacrificing our country for our own selfish purposes. The opposite of the values I was raised with.
