I've been retired for about 5 years as a fishery/habitat biologist in Alaska and am still living here. Since retirement I have been attempting to improve my dividend stock-oriented portfolios in my retirement accounts.
Having recently started building a long term strategy for a dividend growth portfolio, I am interested in improving and learning better ways to identify and evaluate the future great dividend stocks.
I put a lot of faith in numbers and math, but where I need improvement is avoiding this garbage in and garbage out tendency and better understanding FCF valuations and projections.
