    It seems that you are doing kind of value investment with limited diversification in this portfolio. I'd concern about diversification....

  • Dividend Yield Vs. Dividend Growth Revisited - Does It Matter? [View article]
    Thank you for good article. I didn't read comments so probably say nothing new..., anyway:
    My analysis of about 30,000 stocks around the globe shows that HY companies often have linear DG pattern while exponential DG pattern usually comes with low yield /see my SA blog/. Also it is quite difficult for company to held constant DGR during several years. So your modeling is nice but should be taking with grains of salt.

  • The U.K. Sweet Sixteens [View article]
    Hi Nick,
    Thank you for good article.
    I'd agree that some UK companies have perfect dividend history but unfortunately their liquidity in US markets are quite bad (for some ADRs) and big premium is "attached" esp. for OTC shares.
    Do you know is it possible to have limit order with "All or None" feature active for more than 1 trading day at LSE (main and AIM)?

  • Are Dividends A 'Bonus'? - Yet Another View [View article]
    Thank you for the good analysis. I think such perfectly regular pattern might be due to SPY policy of dividend distribution (I do not know it).

  • My Dividend Growth Portfolio's 6th Birthday Report [View article]
    Congratulations with good results! IMO 5-6 years is the right period to analyze a dividend portfolio (i don't understand why some folks do it too often).

  • The Benefits Of Dividends To Risk-Conscious Investors [View article]
    T Rail,
    Thank you for good article.

    I think you have a variant of high-yield (HY) investing: if you buy a stock with reasonable dividend history (e.g. flat dividends in last 10+ years) at good price (i.e. HY) your payback period is short. To some extend this is also long-term version of "fool free money" - see

    One point to verify is "All dividends and all prices are inflation-adjusted to 2013 values assuming an annual price increase of 2.5%" - How did you do it, esp. for prices? Did you assume that you need to pay 100 of 2013 dollars for stock which had price e.g. 75$ in 1996? Did you assume that 100$ dividends received in 1996 worth 75$ today?
    (I didn't make calculations so 75 is just estimated number)

  • REIT Investing For Dividend Growth Investors: A Prospective Study [View article]
    Thank you for good study.
    Did you consider price change ONLY in calculation of annual returns in 1st table?

    Few notes:
    Formation of a quasi-ETF save investor money in long run if she/he trades rarely /

    IMO spikes in income graphs are good - I like to get special dividends and consider them better than shares buybucks (later are not often for REITs) - see

    Since you have quite valuable books I hope you can perform similar study or MLPs.

    A View from Europe
    Somehow this article classified as "Income Investing Strategy" (I guess SA editors made mistake). So you might miss right audience.

  • Managing Low Conviction Positions - Feedback And Strategy [View article]
    Thank you for the follow-up. It is my dream that SA authors who got more than 100 comments to an article provide a feedback. Unfortunately not all SA readers have time to navigate through all comments....

  • International Equities With 10+ Years Dividend Growth: UK Edition [View instapost]

    Thank you for answer. I agree that div. should be treated in local currency. I don't have bloomberg terminal so I checked some ADRs traded on OTC in USA. Unfortunately results are not so good:
    FTUAF - no trade in 2014
    MRGUY & PYHPY & RPCGF didn't pay dividends in 2013
    I think these my statements should be verified with broker.

    If you still have access to bloomberg it would be useful to update the table (it is almost 1 year old) and check other countries. Information about dividends (e.g. how many years firm did DG) seems me quite useful.
