  • Front Loading Savings For A Successful Dividend Retirement

    My favorite saying is that "The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is today." This is why I am carefully planting each dollar seed into carefully chosen portfolio of quality dividend growth stocks available at attractive valuations.

    The power of compounding is said to be one of the 8th wonders of the world. A dollar that compounds at 10%/year today turns into $1.61 in 5 years, $2.59 in 10 years and $17.45 in 30 years and $117.39 in 50 years.

When combining expected dividend growth with current yields, I determine the type of company I am reviewing, and also decide whether it is worth pursuing at some point in the future. I uncover those companies by screening the list of dividend champions or by reviewing the list of dividend increases for the week. I also use my process of reviewing recent dividend increases to monitor the performance of any companies I already own.

    There were five companies last week I decided to review briefly in this blog post. I focused on the companies with at least a ten year streak of dividend growth and the right mix between dividend yield and dividend growth...
