Semi-Retired, new at active investing, seeking knowledge on best ways to invest my 401K and IRA investments, from passive mutual funds to dividend growth investments. Seeking income in the next few years through solid yield dividends while still securing and hopefully appreciating capital. Looking to add some more dividend aristocrats to the mix since they will help pay the bills in a few years to come.

Scheduled to repeat this June.
