    I have done all right by purchasing undervalued companies. Patience is a key.

    I am going to be patient for now. I do read that Canada is wanting to increase competition in telecom, and that could be a negative.

  • Silly Rabbit, Dividends Do Matter In Retirement [View article]
    <<When a company has an investment it wants to make, it's better for shareholders if they have to go outside for capital by floating a secondary equity offering, floating a corporate bond, seeking private debt from a bank or other source, etc.>>

    I do not agree with all of that. I know it is typical for REITs, your specialty, but with non-REITs I prefer a capital allocation scheme that allows the company to invest in itself through a portion of its profits rather than through dilution of current shareholder stakes or by taking on additional debt.

    Thanks for another good read, Mike!

    I own some Canadian companies - BMO, BNS, RCI, BCE and POT - all in IRAs.

    I have been generally pleased, but think I will be selling POT before too long. It has recovered a bit over half the losses it incurred when the potash cartel imploded and I want to reallocate those funds.

    Please link to several of these content free articles.

    thanks

    <<use whatever metric you want, if at retirement, your expenses are greater than your dividends, >>

    Why do you ignore other sources of income?

    Apple is a dividend growth stock that has now committed to annual divided increases. It has had three dividend increases to date, and will join the near Challengers with the next one.

    Oh, and there is no high priest of dividend growth investing :)

    <<DGI is a fad of an inadequately funded retiring baby boom: it, as they, will pass. >>

    Not inadequately funded, but you can be certain that we will all pass regardless of our level of funding.

    I am an pragmatist, and dividend growth investing is a practical way to reach my goals. This is based on evidence, not on any faith-based belief system

    You mean settle for a less than 2% yield and pay a management fee instead of having a portfolio yielding 3-4% with no management fee?

    Is that what you be Mr. WallStreetB?

    <<Don't worry, Mr. Roberts, when stocks that pay generous dividends underperform the broader market in the next decade, they'll have finally forgotten all about you and this article. (I assume that higher-dividend stocks will underperform in the next decade because their valuations are at historical extremes relative to the broader market) >>

    Underperform on what metric(s)?
