    Thanks. Yes, the power of compounding is truly amazing. Of course, this shows why people need to start saving early in life.

  • Target Or Procter & Gamble For Long-Term Dividends? [View article]
    It's a very good point, but a 49% payout ratio is not that bad. Also, I'm not predicting a 15% dividend growth rate. I just used it for example's sake. The goal is to get investors to play around with the numbers themselves.

  • AT&T Vs. Exxon: Dividend Yield Vs. Dividend Growth [View article]
    Thanks. Yes, this is why it's important to calculate forecasted compounded returns rather than trying to eyeball variables such as dividend yield and growth.

  • AT&T Vs. Exxon: Dividend Yield Vs. Dividend Growth [View article]
    If Exxon's price increases then that strategy would not work. Remember, in my example I assumed no price increase.

  • QE Forever Is What Stocks Want [View article]
    Good summary and spot on. However, if and when the major correction comes look for them to triple-down on QE. The real winner in all of this will be gold.

  • Weighting Your Dividend Growth Stocks [View article]
    Right, it does depend on the main goal/reason for investing as you mention. So different types of investors can use different weighting schemes and variables. Many dividend-growth investors ONLY want income so they are looking at metrics for dividend yield, dividend growth, and dividend sustainability.

  • How A Company Like Procter & Gamble Can Save Your Retirement [View article]
    Not everybody needs to be invested 100% in equities. It depends on their risk profile and whether or not they need to take that risk. It is also important to point out that in my example they are basically living off the dividends. So the risk in that vs. market pricing risk is different. In general most people should not be 100% in stocks when they are retired in my opinion. But if they are living off of dividend income from companies that have a long history of increasing their dividends (or at least not cutting them), then the risk is reduced greatly.

  • Can You Live Off Of Dividend Growth Income In Retirement? [View article]
    Many equities do not even pay a dividend. So I was assuming an index such as the S&P 500 and taking the average.

  • Can You Live Off Of Dividend Growth Income In Retirement? [View article]
    Ah, but most of the companies I mentioned actually increased their dividends in 2008 and 2009. Amazing but true. There are very good companies out there that are not as cyclical as most others.
