Author’s reply »

When I started out using the dividend growth investing strategy, there were primarily 4 factors that I based my selections on.

  1. I had to like what the company did for a living.
  2. It had to have a Value Line Safety rating of 1 or 2.
  3. It had to have a Value Line Financial Strength rating of A and above.
  4. The company had to pay a dividend.
