  • Asset Allocation For A Dividend Growth Investor [View article]
    Mr. Van Knapp
    Excellent article that provides a alternative process to help determine the allocation of assets for those planning for retirement. I've never been comfortable with the 4% rule.

  • Yes, You Can Retire: One Investor's Contrarian Perspective [View article]
    RS,
    A good and relevant article for those of us approaching retirement.
    I wanted to reach a comfort level for my retirement years, so in an effort to quantify the "number" I read numerous articles, talked with several Financial Planners and worked with a number of online Retirement Calculators. By using the calculators, I was able to arrive at a "number" which had an X% probably of lasting me through my retirement. However, I wanted a better answer than some % probability that my assets would support me through my non-working years. In short, I wanted an answer that would give me a high level of confidence that I had proved a certain asset level would sustain me in retirement.
    It seemed to me that to answer the question, it would be best to work on the expense side of the equation. By using a spreadsheet, I collected several years worth of expenses and then developed 3 spending models; best case-worst case-base case. In each case, an inflation % was added to arrive at what future expenses may be. The spending models give me a high level of confidence of how much income is needed to fund each one of the financial models. A substantial amount of income to replace my salary will be provide by D-G stocks, along with bonds, SS, and a small pension.
    Thanks again for the article...

  • Dividend Growth Portfolio Semi-Annual Review: Pretty Boring Stuff... The Dividends Just Keep Increasing (Yawn) [View article]
    I've read various opinions on the right allocation per investment within a portfolio.(i.e. 5%) Several years ago I wanted to identify investment opportunities which would be virtual "toll booths". MLPs w/o exposure to the underlying commodity prices seemed to fit my model. Initially positions were started with several pipeline MLPs (TPP,EPD, KMP,etc.) These investments have been a huge success for me with price appreciation ranging from 60%-35% and current distributions of 5%-7%. No singal MLP is over 5% of my portfolio, but as a segment they represent 15% of my investments. Just as limiting a single investment to X% of a portfolio is there a consensus as to the upside limit for a segment within a portfolio?

    Great update article Dave. Your accumalation of dividends to invest in the best D-G stock at the time is the same method I use. It has worked well for me, as well, since the market is dynamic and may offer an excellent opportunity to start a postion or add to one.
