  • Learning From The Masters: Q&A Session With Richjoy403 [View article]
    Nicholas, Richjoy,

    Excellent article. Glad I saw this pop up before hitting the exit button for the night. Richjoy is one of my favorites here and I continue to learn from his experience. Thanks to you both.

  • Happy Birthday! My Dividend Growth Portfolio's 7th Birthday Report [View article]
    Dave,

    Congratulations on the performance. I agree with your thinking on CVX. They had small increases of around 2% in 2001 and 2003. Business will improve for the oils at some point. I would expect at least a small increase by the last quarter of 2016 to keep the year over year dividend increase intact.

  • The No. 1 Stock In The World - Part 1 [View article]
    My first thought was BRK. But that would be a cop-out as it owns so many companies. My second thought was JNJ. It was my first stock as a Dividend Growth Investor.

  • 5 Dividend Companies With 10-15% Growth [View article]
    I own GILD. UNP and CMI are excellent companies that have been on my watch-list for awhile. All three are reasonable values in today's market. Don't know much about the other two. Enjoyed the article.

  • Learning From The Masters: Q&A Session With Rosenose [View article]
    Great idea for a series! Somehow I missed the first two as life gets hectic at times. But I definitely will go back and read those over the next few days. Great to get a peek at what has molded these "Masters" and learn from their insight.

  • 5 Best U.S. Dividend Growth Stocks [View article]
    I own 4 of the 5. Don't own GPC. Just always thought the auto parts business was too simple with too much competition. Just goes to show that a well managed company can differentiate themselves and excel in any business.

    >>Teach a man to fish and all he does is spend all day drinking in a boat.<<

    Robert,

    LOL, I was thinking that was funny until I pictured them drunk wannabe bass-masters flying up and down the lake at 75 mph in those 250 hp bass-boats. (with them drunk jet skiers zigging and zagging in between)

    >>>CDK is now up 60%<<<

    Dang! I will add this to my list of stupid sells. I too own ADP. I sold off the CDK and bought a little more ADP. Just checked and that purchase is up just 17%. I need to listen to BuyandHold and remove sell from my investing options.

    >>>You can take pictures???????<<...

    gabby,

    And for some reason phone pictures make the fish look bigger. Caught a 3 lb bass and everyone thought it was 6 lbs. So now I don't catch anything under 5 lbs and everyone thinks I am a trophy bass fisherman.

    >>>And you can even make a phone call with it.<<<

    Robert,

    Just proves nothing is perfect. Nothing more annoying than getting a phone call while fishing. (of course I don't answer it, unless its from my wife of course).

    >>>Do you have a smart phone?????????????<...

    I think I got one of those. It tells correct time without winding it and I can flip it open and take pictures of the fish I catch.

  • How Much Money Will You Need To Retire? [View article]
    >>>Taxes on average size suburban home 14k.<<<

    Good grief! Where you all live! Come on down to SC (everyone else seems to be). Tax on average size home (1700 to 2000 Sq/ft) about $600 to $900.
    If you feel guilty that you are not paying enough you can move over to the lake in one of those big new houses and pay $3000 to $5000 or so I am told.

    Drew,

    When did Exxon last cut the dividend? The information I see is that they have raised it for 32 years in a row. Oil has dipped many times over that stretch. With a low payout ratio and great financial strength they can afford another raise this year.
