Like hundreds of thousands of other small investors, my wife & I are longer-term investors, focused primarily on Dividend Growth in high quality companies with durable earnings. My actual portfolio can be viewed on my page, In Dividend Growth We Trust. (Scroll down) I am both blessed & grateful my wife shares in the requisite grunt work essential to limiting downside risk inherent with investing. We are partial owners in a handful of wonderful companies, constantly seeking to expand our investment horizon and fortify our financial future. Like many of you, ours is a journey, which has included some detours but never deterred us from our destination.
