  • The Importance Of Total Return With Dividend Growth Investing [View article]
    I also think selling immediately after a cut can be a good choice.

    I managed to sell SDRL and ARCP before they did their things with the dividends. I sold INTC when they went 5 quarters without a raise and without an explanation from management. That may not have been the best total return move, but I find it best to have some rules that get followed most of the time.

    <<Best not to buy those companies in the first place, of course. Second best to ride it out a while after the cut.>>

    Second best, I think, would be to sell it before the cut, as with SDRL, for example.

    I just took a look at the portfolio performance tab on Fidelity

    Since inception, which they define as August 31, 2010, our largest account is up 790%. Our smallest one (half the size of the largest one) is up 250%.

    I do not know what average is, but I am okay with that performance.

    Mostly due to AAPL LEAPs and calls, some due to dividend growth portfolio.

    The smaller one did not do as well cause I held on to some LEAPs too long in 2012

    <<If I had enough money I would arrange my asset allocation so that I covered all my necessary expenses through safe bond income. >>

    All our necessary expense are covered through pension and SS income - income that grows a bit each year. I consider this our "bond" portion.

    << Many incorrectly think this yardstick can be income, but sadly, it is not, at least while you are accumulating money for retirement.>>

    Yes it can, and people who think it can, and, more importantly for whom it is are not incorrect. Unless, of course, you call any disagreement with you incorrect.

    I think most investors need some fixed income.

    For us, pensions and Social Security are the fixed income part of our retirement portfolio.

    We need no additional fixed income investments at this time.

    Kiisu,

    We are in the exact same situation - between pensions and SS our living expenses are covered, and we do the same with our investments as you are doing

    I know that our SS deposits happened again this week.

    Y'all can discuss esoteric and useless political philosophies all you want to.

    I'll enjoy retirement.

    Unless one is using a metric like dividend yield.
    Then it is as easy as pie to beat the SP500.
