Long-Term Horizon, Dividend Growth Investing, Growth, Long Only

Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2007

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.

  • Summary analysis of three industrial distributors that just raised their dividends.
  • Focus is on their suitability as dividend growth stocks for further evaluation.

A summary analysis of MSC Industrial Direct (MSC), Fastenal (FAST), and W.W. Grainger (GWW) with a focus on their suitability as dividend growth stocks for further evaluation. All three stocks just raised their dividends. MSC Industrial has raised the dividend for 16 straight years, Fastenal has raised the dividend for 22 years, and Grainger has raised the dividend for 47 years. Grainger is a Dividend Aristocrat and will likely become a Dividend King.
