Dividend Growth Investing

Contributor Since 2008

I have been focusing my attention particularly to companies that regularly increase dividends to their shareholders for over a decade. I have also written about about dividend growth stocks on Seeking Alpha and my website for over a decade.


I am mostly a buyer of high quality dividend stocks, with solid competitive advantages. My holding period is forever - for as long as the dividend is at least maintained. I tend to concentrate my efforts on stocks which grow earnings and dividends, which provides outstanding total returns over time. I only focus my attention to stocks with sustainable dividend payments. I am also a firm believer in diversification accross sectors and geographic locations. I am a patient buy and hold investor, who believes that having an investment plan, investing regularly per your plan, staying the course, and keeping investment costs low are the best tools in the arsenal for the individual investor.


I share my thoughts on investing in dividend paying stocks that have consistently increased their payments over time and tips on growing my dividend income. I hope that my blog will serve as an inspiration for my readers and that it would change their financial lives for the better. 

I pick my own dividend paying stocks in my taxable accounts, and wouldn't have it any other way. I know some of you have mentioned that they have absolutely no time to dedicate to picking stocks. It makes sense - if you are working 60 hours/week, and have a lot of other responsibilities, you might not have any time for picking stocks. I get it. I also know that some do not enjoy the process of developing and following their own plan. So when some readers have historically asked me for the best dividend ETF, I was unable to answer this question. And I was against dividend ETF's in general.

I have previously been unable to answer this question on the Best Dividend ETF, because most products out there had high expense ratios or have had dividend payments that were not growing overall. In my search for a good dividend ETF or fund I would be looking for something like:

- Look for consistently growing dividends

- Low portfolio turnover

- Low cost

- A track record of regular dividend increases
