    I do exactly the same thing, trying to make sure these adjustments don't effect monthly income.

    i look forward to learning what you find. With MLP's and REITs its likely the age of the business but utilities I'm not so sure. Would be interesting to find out how many suffer pre-2002 dividend cuts and why?

    I look at my low conviction position the same way as a kind of back door cash account to use when stocks I really want come available.

    Only on those rare occasions were I decide to sell. Don't want to lose income. Often sell a few weeks after the dividend is paid.

    How do others handle this?

    Thanks for commenting. There's a lot about DGI that as you suggest passes the common sense test.

    I'll admit to being a bit surprised at how few dividend champions yielding 2.75% or more currently pass the chowder rule for purchase.

    When I look at my own portfolio I find I own a lot more Contenders....the Champions of tomorrow.

    Take care

    The problem for me is that Dale/Cranky has been shouting the same warning for more than three years. There were quite a few undervalued DG three years ago. Many DG stocks have endured the 2002 and 2008/9 Bear markets and out performed rather than under performed. There is usually a run to safety particularly with fund managers that have to be fully invested.

    I agree with Rich that Index holders are more likely to panic due in part to higher beta and holding so many dividend cutters from previous bear markets. None of us can know for sure what will happen and how investors will react but singling out DGI as the group that will run for the hills is frankly getting a bit old.

    Just looked it up on both. BTW, morningstar shows it undervalued.
