My purpose is to purchase great companies at great value. My goal is to assemble a portfolio of dividend growth stocks that will continue to pay and increase their dividends annually in order to achieve my goal of financial independence. Financial independence for me is to have my dividends cover my living expenses come retirement (or sooner would be better!).
I have called my portfolio the Accelerating Dividends Portfolio. My portfolio consists of the following stocks right now:
Core: HAS, OHI
Supportive: LYB, EXR, GILD, WYN
Speculative: SWKS, TGT
I am still working on my investment plan and when it is ready I will share it with you.
As for myself, I am a part-time, self-educated investor who works a full-time day job as a criminal intelligence analyst. I bring my thought process from my job with me to much of my daily life. I like to ask questions, particularly some that are hard and not really talked about. I like to find data and do analyses in order to support or refute my ideas and answer my questions.
I came across the dividend growth investing model when I was searching for a better way to invest my money. I love and advocate the dividend growth investment model because it has touched me the most and helps me to sleep well at night.
I have been enthralled over the last few years with finances (if I could change careers, I would move to financial advising in order to pursue this interest full-time). This interest has stirred within me a great desire to learn and although there is always more to learn, I continue to enjoy the challenge of acquiring more knowledge and experience. I enjoy applying what I have learned particularly in my writing here on Seeking Alpha. I also apply many of my analytic skills and thinking to my articles in order to stimulate discussion to get many points of view. This helps me enhance my own opinion, perspective, and thought process. I hope that what I share will be of worth to the Seeking Alpha community.
I hope you will follow me along this journey towards financial independence and accelerating dividends!
