The primary driving force behind 99%+ of the activity on Seeking Alpha appears to be investors' confirmation bias. Do you want to be part of the 99% or are you trying to get to the 1%? IF AN INVESTMENT GENERATES A K-1 INSTEAD OF A 1099-DIV I WON'T INVEST IN IT USING ANY TAX ADVANTAGED ACCOUNT. Here's why: http://www.wsj.com/articles/thousands-hit-with-surprise-tax-bill-on-income-in-iras-1447427436
I am a keen dividend growth investor with a new found passion in the stock market and buying income on sale. Although a fan of the lower risk DGI method, I am all in for financial freedom and attempting to retire by 30. I am therefore willing to take on more risk to get there and I am now investing into higher yield stocks predominantly MReits, BDCS and Reits. I firmly believe that this approach will get me there faster alongside investing in undervalued dividend growth stocks that will compound better in the long run. I am looking at a complete 50/50 split of DGI growth stocks for stability and 50% high yield alternatives.

After retiring from 23 years of service in the US Air Force, I attended Boston College's Center for Professional Education Financial Planning course. After graduation and Series 6, 7 and 65 certifications I worked for a short time with Smith Barney, and then went to a major regional bank as an investment executive. Five years later when the regional merged with another national bank, I struck out on my own starting my own financial services company which I have operated for the past 12 years. Three years ago I started a private funds placement hedge fund, Golden Bay Capital LP.
Living in Shenzhen, China. It's a stone's throw from Hong Kong and borders it on the mainland side. Spend most of my time traveling around and seeing the sights and of course, sampling the fantastic cuisine throughout the country.
It's been my experience that people will make Zeno's mistake over and over forever. False conclusions arise when ignoring the proof of reality just as Zeno and his paradox do. When theory and reality disagree, reality wins every time. If you don't know about Zeno, read up on him here: http://platonicrealms.com/encyclopedia/zenos-paradox-of-the-tortoise-and-achilles
