  • Dividends And 'The Magic Pants' [View article]
    Larry, I have bought your books and totally respect your opinions. I wish I had a tiny fraction of your knowledge of markets, experience and knowledge. With all that I still think it it makes sense for an investor to strive for more than index based returns. There is more to the business of investing than beating an average. It is really setting specific goals and attaing them. I think it is senseible to look for market beating returns and investing in those specific companies. I'm out of fashion as a buy and hold investor but that is not the point. Nearly everyone here is smarter than me so i learn the most by reading and accumulating the knowledge. Keep working and I will do the same and hopefully we will both be prosperous in the end... All the best.

  • Dividend Growth Investors: Focus On Valuation Rather Than Price [View article]
    Thank you very much for the primer on price vs valuation. I have the basic fast graphs subscription and I'm trying to learn how to use it better. I always compare their results with Morningstar as a starting point for all evaluations. I have a lot to learn and this helps.

  • 'Team Alpha' Portfolio: Dividend Investing Sooner Than Later [View article]
    Thank you very much for sharing your plans and reasoning behind it. For me, valuation first and then dividends second. My goal is finding rising dividends stocks at the right price. A good yield with a falling stock is nothing I want to be a part of.

    I use Fast Graphs and Morningstar. If both show a stock as undervalued, then I start researching further. It has worked so far. The real tests for me and my learning goals is to learn when to sell and to be vigilant about my approach over a long periods of time. I have been investing since 1999 and started with mutual funds to tip my toes in the water when I did not have much to invest. I never forget that fear and trepidation of investing $3000 back then. Now that same investment is over $40,000. Wish I had more courage and time.. ha

    I want to think the entire Seeking Alpha community for the articles and feedback. In fact, I learn the most from the feedback actually.

  • Our Dividend Growth Portfolio Produces Our New Retirement Paycheck [View article]
    Bob, I commend you for your efforts and then opening up to explain what you have purchased and why. I understand everyone has their own objectives and respect the process and pursuit. I love the comments made above where a challenge was made to find another investment form that matches his goals and objectives. That is the pure form of individual pursuit of excellence which deserves independent respect. Anyone can be critical but only one can make his stand.

    I feel indebted to all the authors and those who post comments on the articles. The process of critical and public discourse has captivated me to want to learn more. I am transitioning from mutual funds to researching and purchasing income sharing companies and managements who recognize and respect that. Thank you to all.

  • Important Metrics For Dividend Growth Investors [View article]
    Thank you all for the tremendous educational efforts that is shared every day here on SA. I learn as much reading everyone's comments as I do from reading the articles.

    I subscribe to both Morningstar and the basic Fast Graphs plan and use them in tandem as described above. It gives a great place to start when going through the due diligence process. I have so much to learn but enjoy the process immensely.

    Thank you,

  • Hasbro, Inc. Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    Hello... I noticed a lot of content in this article is very close to the site analysis and your fair value of $43 is an exact match to theirs. I'm curious if their content influenced your analysis or maybe the other way around? Love the efforts either way. Thank you.
