    Hi LeftBanker - see response to Rudester above. Our entire investment plan is laid out in Part 1 of the series if you want more details about how we plan to achieve our 6% income target for 2013.

    In addition, we are managing a real-time model dividend portfolio for our premium members and we are definitely on pace thus far. This isn't just theory...we are showing you real-time how to build and manage a 6% income portfolio!

  • Building A 6% Income Portfolio For 2013 (Part 5b): Consumer Discretionary 'Buy Zones' [View article]
    Hi Rudester - Our 6% income target for our Model DIY Dividend Portfolio includes both dividend income and option income (from conservative option strategies like cash-secured puts and covered calls). We believe that it is much safer to supplement a stable, high-quality dividend portfolio with additional option income than it is to go out the risk curve in search of higher yielding stocks.

    That said, we do own some high-yield stocks (with yields over 6%) in our portfolio, but we limit our high yield concentration to 20% of our overall portfolio.

    Our weighted average target annual dividend yield for the portfolio is 4.0% and our target option income yield is 2.0%...which gets us to our total annual income target of 6.0%.

  • Core Retirement Portfolio: 12 Dividend Aristocrats Yielding Over 3% (Part 2) [View article]
    rnsmith - We'd be honored to be part of your research repertoire that already includes great resources like Morningstar and David Van Knapp.

    We pride ourselves on taking a holistic approach to portfolio management. We don't consider ourselves "stock pickers" per se, but picking good dividend stocks is an important part of our overall investment strategy.

    Feel free to send us an email if you have any questions about our service (info@parsimonyresearc...

    Smurf - We agree that you shouldn't chase stocks higher. Just because a stock rates well in our system, it doesn't mean that it should be purchased today.

    Our investment philosophy is built around identifying good stocks and then patiently waiting for low risk entry points (i.e., our "Buy Zones").

    Dividend investing is a marathon...not a sprint.

    Thanks for the comment, Myer. You are correct, investors should use these lists as a starting point for their own research.

    rnsmith - We LOVE dividend growth just as much as the next guy...but there are many other factors to consider with a dividend stock investment. This is the exact reason why we created our rating system with five different sub-ratings. It helps us target where a particular stock's strengths and weaknesses are. All else being equal, we like well-rounded stocks the best (which may not always be the ones with the highest dividend growth rates).
