  • Establishing My Dividend Growth Strategy And Portfolio As A New Investor [View article]
    First off- great article. I'm about half-way through the planning stages for my own dividend growth portfolio, so these articles are excellent resources (especially real world examples).

    Question about your Purpose section and the amount of money you would like to earn off of dividends relative to what you spend currently. 30-35 years down the road when you retire, do you believe this $4,000 per month income number is still going to be a desirable target income? If you want to be able to cover living expenses, save up for the occasional vacation, it worth re-assessing your income target for what you may need in 30 years?

    I imagine the income target/goal will partly affect how you measure the success of your overall portfolio and, therefore, decisions you will make on managing your holdings.

    Not really a stock-picking/analysis related question...but I would like to pick an income target also, so I'm curious about the decision.
