    Timely article, thanks Eli. I have been watching the pullback in HSY but couldn't quite bring myself to buy yet. Was hoping yesterday's correction would continue today...

  • No Fees Please! Create Your Own 'Mini-ETF' [View article]
    Great article. Like you, I want to pick the companies I own. I bought five utilities for purposes of diversification but never thought of it as my own ETF. I Have to go back and check my performance against the XLU.

  • Protecting Your Income Portfolios In Today's Market: Consider Defensive Utility Stocks [View article]
    I am long SO and SCG (which I bought after reading an earlier article of yours). My mother, who is 92, gets a large chunk of her income from dividends from SO that my father bought long before he died in 1991. It has been a steady and reliable income source. Thanks for your fine article.

  • 20 Dividend Champions To Buy Today [View article]
    Chuck, this article and the comment stream were very timely and helpful for me. I was lucky enough to have started my DGI portfolio in 2009, and I already hold positions in several of the companies you highlight. Now, I want to sell my remaining bond funds and reallocate to equities, but I have been unwilling to buy companies priced 50% or more higher than my original investment. You are convincing me otherwise with this article, however, and it is time to sit down with my Fast Graphs and reevaluate. Many thanks!

  • My Dividend Growth Portfolio's 6th Birthday Report [View article]
    Dave, thanks for this very succinct and informative presentation of your methods. Your books and articles introduced me to DGI about five years ago, and while I can't track my results exactly as you have done here as I have added to the portfolio many times, my results have been similar. I am very appreciative of your work, and your generosity in sharing your knowledge with SA readers.

    Thanks for another great chapter in the Carnevale Guide to Investing. Your articles, along with the Fast Graph service, have made me a much better investor. I am looking forward to Part 2. By the way, I really like the new feature showing the S & P credit rating.

  • Dominion Resources: Will Natural Gas E&P Make This Stock A Winner For Retirees? [View instapost]
    I have been a fan of D for many years. as it was my introduction to owning individual equities. When we lived in Virginia many years ago, we participated in the savings plan that enabled us to buy shares directly by adding a little to our monthly electric bill. That amount grew and we sold the shares to help fund our retirement home in 2000. I wish I could have been able to keep those shares, though! I bought again in 2009 - it was the first holding in what has become my DGI portfolio, and it is one of my best performers. I still reinvest the dividends. If D is successful with its LNG export business, it will be icing on the cake!

  • Dividend Growth Investing: An Introduction To Creating Wealth [View article]
    ThAnks for sharing your real life investing results, which, in my opinion, is the most helpful information for less experienced investors. I wish I had seen your articles twenty five years ago! But even starting after retirement, about four years ago, I can see the tangible benefits of DGI. I look forward to the rest of your series.

  • Buying On The Dip, A Strategy [View article]
    Bob, I appreciate this article so much, it goes into my investing notebook next to the computer. I have been "buying on dips" for a couple of years, but never followed an organized process like the one you outline here. Especially appreciate the explanation of RSI (and thanks, Richjoy, for the how-to advice). I share quite a few of your holdings, and I am glad to see that my estimation of fair value is similar to yours. Thanks for your hard work!
