  • Dividend Growth Portfolio Reality Check, Part I [View article]
    Anthony,

    Thanks for the comment. It does seem like the internet is full of cheerleaders, and while it does feel good to be part of a group, I want to make sure i am being realistic,too.

    I just read your article on GE; glad to see your article was balanced with the good and the bad.

    Ben,

    Thanks for reading and commenting. These are only 5 of the stocks in my portfolio. In part 2, i will cover 5 more stocks in my portfolio. I appreciate your concern; i guess i should have mentioned this explicitly in the article.

  • What A Dividend Growth Investor Can Learn From Aesop's Fables [View article]
    David C,


    Let’s not throw out the baby with the bathwater.

    It has been a long time since I paid attention to Dr. Seuss, but his work does have redeeming qualities. Off the top of my head I can think of the Lorax, which deals with conservationism; the Butter Battle Book, which points out the stupidity of our disputes; and Horton Hears a Who, which deals with faith/science. Furthermore, I think the original Berenstain Bear books were created by him and they always taught good lessons.

    Additionally some of his other books play with words and sounds in the grand tradition of Lewis Carroll’s The Jabberwocky, etc.

    He should not be the only thing a child reads, but part of a well-diversified portfolio…er…reading list for kids; this includes fables,too.

    Not lookin for a fight…just sayin

  • T. Rowe Price Dividend Growth Fund Leaves Me Scratching My Head [View article]
    Tim,

    A departure from what you normally write, but done well, nevertheless. Your timing is impeccable. In the comment stream of one of my recent articles, someone asked if I knew anything about the popular dividend growth mutual funds. I didn’t have a good answer at the time, but I just linked back to this article.

    Thanks,

  • Some 'Tips' For Dividend Growth Investors [View article]
    I was gonna mention the same thing. I am guessing that he didn't mention it because it opens up a can of worms about whether CPI is effective or not.

    @ DVK,
    Thanks for putting in the time and sharing.
