    Earning Season is a little lighter for Dividend Growth investors this week with Tuesday being the biggest day. in full swing and so far the buys for Dividend Growth investors have been slim. Hopefully the week ahead will bring more bargains. Last week I was able to buy small positions in Tower Group (NASDAQ:TWGP) Teco Energy (NYSE:TE), Two Harbors (NYSE:TWO) and final Bristol - Myers (NYSE:BMY). A few of the companies I'm watching this week include: Avista Corp. (NYSE:AVA), WP Carey - (NYSE:WPC), CenturyLink (NYSE:CTL), PPL Corp. (NYSE:PPL), Cedar Fair (NYSE:FUN) and Windstream (NASDAQ:WIN).

    I plan to check in at 9:30 to see how the market reacts to the stocks on our shopping list. Again. I am looking for dividend growth stocks that missed earning estimates and as such have suffered significant price drops. Again I'll wait until later in the day to make my purchases. I not trying to time the bottom, just hoping to buy a few of the stocks we want at a discount. Remember in our case we're looking only at stocks that have proven they can supply steady reliable retirement income from the growing dividends they produce.

    Here are just some of the companies reporting this week of interest to Dividend Growth investors:


    American States Water - (NYSE:AWK)

    Health Care Reit - (NYSE:HCN)

    MFA Financial - (NYSE:MFA)

It is always great to hear from other DG Investors with dry powder about what's on your shopping list this earning season and what bargains you have gotten this season. May your earning season continue to prove successful.
