I'm a DIY investor and not a financial professional, broker, or securities dealer. My articles and comments express my own thoughts and opinions and nothing more. You should always seek qualified advice pertaining to your own unique situation before investing your money. I am a married thirty-something year old who works in State government. After some initial meandering, I have become interested almost exclusively in dividend growth investing strategies and I invest regularly, but modestly, in dividend growth stocks. My only other investing is done automatically via required contributions to a state pension.
