I write about dividend growth stocks on my website www.dividendgrowthinvestor.com.
I am mostly a buyer of high quality dividend stocks, with solid competitive advantages. My holding period is forever, as long as the dividend is at least maintained. I tend to concentrate my efforts on stocks which grow earnings and dividends, which provides outstanding total returns over time. I only focus my attention to stocks with sustainable dividend payments. I am also a firm believer in diversification accross sectors and geographic locations.
I have been focusing my attention particularly to companies that regularly increase dividends to their shareholders on my website. On my blog I share my thoughts on investing in dividend paying stocks that have consistently increased their payments over time and tips on growing my dividend income. I hope that my blog will serve as an inspiration for my readers and that it would change their financial lives for the better.

Hans retired from his business career at 55 and pursued his passion to help others achieve financial independence. A graduate of the US Air Force Academy with an MBA majoring in Finance from the University of Colorado, Hans continued to invest throughout his career in the US Air Force, Bank of America, Coopers & Lybrand, and working for Ross Perot.
Since he did not come from the investment-banking world, Hans has a better understanding of the needs and issues individual investors face as they strive to secure their financial future. Hans Wagner started investing at an early age and was able to retire at 55. He founded Trading Online Markets LLC ( http://www.tradingonlinemarkets.com/) as a way to help others achieve financial independence.
He seeks to help other individuals achieve their financial goals and welcomes questions at any time. The idea for this site came from our children and their friends as they graduated from college and began their careers. While they were successful in school, they are unprepared to invest wisely and create the wealth they will need to buy their first home, see their children through college (it will cost much more then), and have a sufficient nest egg for retirement (pensions are going away and Social Security will be in trouble). Ten percent of the revenue from the site is to educational organizations that seek to help the world's disadvantaged overcome poverty.
