Dividend Growth investor since 2011.
In July 2013 we moved from a managed account with a mutual fund, stock and bond portfolio to our own Dividend Growth portfolio. I am still evaluating the current portfolio holdings as they fit in our DGI "Plan".
Update: July 2014 I am now retired and am following our plan for life long financial independence. Retirement and financial independence are two different life goals and as such should be treated differently. Now when I check our discount brokerage account I now look at the cash being generated rather then the total value. This income generating plan seems to be working just fine as dividends are being used to support our day to day life. We
currently have a 3.8% yield, 4.2% YOC and 7-8% dividend CAGR.
My Father has been a DGI for over 70 years and has lived off the dividends for over 30+ years showing me the way forward.
I continue to read S/A articles daily and am still learning from the many dedicated authors.
I am President of "Sports Guys" investment club which I started several years ago with 9 friends, so we could all better understand and demystify stock investing.
I volunteer my time to our High School First Robotics Team. It is amazing what these students can do over the 6 week build season.
There are certain stocks I will not buy and I like to have stocks of products we use. For example when we pay for gas the dividends from XOM and COP pays the bill and BCE, RCI and VOD pay for phone and internet. You get the idea. If there was only a good dividend vacation stock... Maybe CNK.
