I am a dividend growth investor. My goal is to create my own personal endowment fund that supplies all of my living expenses through ever increasing dividends. As such I tend not to worry too much about the current price of the equity once I have purchased shares. I am more concerned with the health of the company and whether or not they can continue to grow the business and the future dividend stream. I am searching for consistent dividend payers with above average yield, a strong management team, growth potential, a strong history of dividend increases, low volatility, above average earnings, high margins, and a low payout ratio.
Purchase decisions initially are based on a current yield above 5% and the stock must be at or near the price where there is a gap in its six month trading pattern with the stock at the low end of the Bollinger Bands and Williams %R exhibiting a strong oversold position at the time of purchase to insure that I am not overpaying for the underlying security. Subsequent purchases with new cash must meet the last two requirements and all dividends are set up to reinvest automatically for an exponential compounding of the dividend stream
I believe, like Warren Buffet, that if you have a great stock idea it is better to increase your holdings there than to go out an seek an additional holding elsewhere.
