  • My K.I.S.S. Dividend Portfolio: 1st Quarter 2015 Update [View article]
    dg,

    All my investments are in tax deferred accounts. That's not a specific plan, it's just that any money I bring home outside of my retirement contributions get spent. lol. If I am ever able to save more money and put some in a taxable account I will certainly do so.

    I am also 100% invested in stocks. And that is due to my plan. I want all my money to be creating income for me. And if any of it is sitting on the sidelines then it won't be doing me any good. That is just what I'm comfortable with. I know that puts me at a little more risk when the market downturn comes, as it will, but since I invest for income, not capital gains, it won't bother me too much.

    Scott,

    Exactly right. I still have time for growth to work for me. Eventually I'll start switching over, going for even higher yield.

    Bob,

    That is a great point! Thank you for your comment. And let me clarify my position. I will not sell a low yielding, high growth stock, just to replace it with a higher yielding stock RIGHT NOW. At this time in my life. But I'm quite certain that I will do so when I get closer to, or actually in, retirement. As I get closer to that point I expect to begin changing the composition of my portfolio to give me a yield closer to 5%, or more. So absolutely will I start selling off my low yielding stocks.

    But for now I still have time for the growth to work its magic.

    Diamond,

    If I can't educate people about DGI, at least I can make them laugh. I'm happy with either.

    Scott,

    When I made my projections, and increased the yield, I also decreased the DGR at the same time, understanding that higher yielding stocks usually have slower dividend growth. The projections still favored the higher yielding, slower dividend growth portfolio. So that is why I moved up my yield but off.

    I WILL continue to add more money to my portfolio every year, so I expect that when I retire it will be worth in the 3-4 million range, and I hope to be able to produce over $200K in income.

    I understand Mike, and perhaps I'll work on a specific goal, but for now it's a non-specific "as much income as I'm able to produce, while taking a reasonable amount of risk, and assuming reasonable yields and DGRs."

    That's what I'll go with for now.

    Boom,

    That is correct. I do not follow YOC. I only care about present yield.

    jmcnair,

    Once I buy a stock I'm not interested in what happens to the price, accept possibly as it will affect reinvestment in that stock. As long as it keeps raising its dividend I don't care if the price has been cut in half. I know, again, as long as the dividend keeps increasing, that the stock price will come back. And in the meantime I may have picked up more shares at bargain prices. So no, I'm not interested in stop losses.

    I am very interested in seeing what happens with the oil and gas companies and their dividends. Will they cut them? So far none have that I'm aware of. At least none of the ones I own. So even though their prices are down the dividends are still holding up. I'm pretty sure I'll be reinvesting a lot of my collected dividends into some of these companies over the next month.
