PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: ... Income Replacement! Escape velocity is the speed that an object needs to be traveling to break free of the planet's gravitational pull and leave it without further propulsion. This portfolio is looking for the point where the income being generated can allow the holder of this portfolio to escape the gravitational pull of the market and economic forces of worrying about share prices. The objective is to generate enough income from assets that the only selling of shares will become an option, not a necessity to survive. Therefore, with enough income being generated, it minimizes the fear of meaningful market corrections as dividends are based on the number of shares owned, not the share price.
I started a dividend growth investment strategy a few years ago and am aggressively growing my portfolio to churn out enough dividends to reach financial independence.
I am a DGR investor inspired by this website and the well regarded writers here. I find the writing to be thoughtful and detailed, inspiring confidence and providing direction for novice investors as myself. My goal is to supplement my income with dividends from my DGR porfolio in retirement and to have the courage, with support from the Seeking Alpha community, to stay "in" when the next market correction occurs.
