    Just a quick note for those of you that are followers of my blog but have not yet opted to follow me as an author and get email notices of my latest articles (please do so). SA has just published my latest article:

    Looking For The Poster-Boy Of Alpha Companies? CBD Could Be It

    In this one, I examine a Brazilian retailer that shows excellent growth and returns with a stock price performance history to match it.

    I will be searching out and focusing on several of those in various regions of the globe over the next few weeks. Even those of us in our early and mid retirement years should have part of our portfolio in high quality growth equities. 15% of your total portfolio that you won't be needing to touch for at least the next 15 years doesn't take much of a dent out of your current income and does provide for solid future growth of your portfolio for higher income in those later years when you may want or need it. If you are like me and focus on a 7% dividend yield for your income, then 15% of your portfolio set aside for long term growth only impacts your current dividend yield by .15 x .07 = 0.0105 = 1.05%. I think we can all afford to defer 1.05% of current portfolio dividend yield for solid future growth and added diversity for safety.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, but may initiate a long position in CBD over the next 72 hours.
