    Hello Rose,

    Thanks for your comment and for sharing your personal perspectives on dividend growth stocks. You also make an excellent point on the importance of due diligence. And I could not agree more about the sharing of view points and the quality of the commentary on SA. It is in the comment section of articles where some of the best ideas are explored and discussed by a wide number of outstanding commenters.

    Thanks again!

    As for your suggestion about a potential third article, we are absolutely thinking on the same wavelength, as I am currently in the process of exploring this point in detail and hope to have an update in the coming days. Great point!

    Hello 8566031,

    Thanks for your comment and the points you've made here are important and well said. For if a dividend growth company cannot maintain underlying earnings growth into the future, their ability to continue increasing their dividend can quickly become compromised. Great point.

    Thanks again

    Hello c5966,

    Thanks for your comment and for adding this interesting point on the Graham Number. Thanks for sharing this perspective. And I think your inclination to focus on undervalued dividend growth stocks is particularly prudent in the current environment.

    Thanks again.

    Hello Jeremy - You make a good point here, as I believe many dividend growth stocks will continue to hold up fairly well even if we enter into the early stages of a stock market correction. Eventually they would succumb to the downside, but historically they hold up well initially. Thanks for making a good point here.

    Hello Ray,

    Thanks for your comment and for sharing your thoughts and experience with MLPs. This is an asset class that certainly has its pros and cons, particularly in the current environment. There are a number of MLPs that I like a great deal, but one of the concerns that I have about the MLP space is that a fair number of new companies have entered the MLP space that are not ideally suited for this business structure in order to try and capitalize on investor demand. As a result, I worry about the longer term consequences on the sector from these developments, particularly once interest rates start to rise. It will be interesting to see, but I agree that there are a number of MLPs that are very good firms. Out of curiosity, which in particular are your most favored in your portfolio?

    Thanks again Ray. I appreciate your comment on my article.

    Hello Larry,

    Thanks for your comment and you raise a particularly important point that I've been focusing on as a potential follow up article on this topic. As I talked about with a reader in an interesting e-mail exchange about this article, it is notable that 14 stocks have fallen out of Aristocrat status since 2010, which is essentially a turnover of 25% of the entire group. So to your point, dividend growth is not guaranteed and it is worthwhile to explore how those that have fallen out of the group have fared over the years.

    Great point. Thanks again.

    Hello David,

    Thanks for your comment and I share your concerns about the ability of the economy and earnings to accelerate to fill the valuation gap that has been created under the broader market in general and some of the dividend growth names in particular. Great point. Thanks again.
