Retired now, a petroleum geologist by profession with over 40 plus years of experience and use to digging through reams of data to find the information I need. I am in the continual process of educating myself on dividend growth stocks investing. Have put together a DGI portfolio which I am continually trying to improve as buying opportunities present themselves. Aiming for a Beta less than 70 and yield of 5% plus. Having worked within the oil industry my entire carrier I have a soft spot for good companies within this sector. Striving to be able to live off the dividends (hopefully SS will be able to contribute some but worry what the politicians will do to us all here!) and never have sell a single share I do not want to sell to live.
