I have been investing in the stock market since mid 1970's. My goal is to grow dividend income sufficient to ensure a secure retirement when combined with my other income. I believe that dividend growth investing is the vehicle that will make this goal possible. Since one of the most important aspects of DGI is never overpaying for any position, I use Capital IQ (which is available through my Vanguard accounts), Fast Graphs and David Fish's excellent CCC List. These tools help me identify stocks that are undervalued, or at least fairly valued, before I make purchase decisions. I am not an investment professional, just trying a regular gal trying to plan for her financial future.
