I am a self-taught individual investor and I have been investing in stocks for approximately 20 years. I focus on dividend growth investing with a long-term horizon since I believe in the compounding power of dividend growth investing. I generally look for undervalued large cap stocks with sustainable dividend growth and capital appreciation potential. My second focus is tech and small- or mid-cap stocks with or without dividends for their growth potential. I try to provide a little more in depth analysis weighing the positives and negatives. You can see my performance at my Tip Ranks profile. I am now in the Top 100 out of 13,540 (73rd and in the top 1.0%) financial bloggers (August 2022).You can follow me at my blog Dividend Power.
