There are a lot of dividend growth investing blogs out there, and a lot of them publish their portfolios. I had the idea to do a watch list based on “popular” dividend growth stocks a while ago, but I was admittedly too lazy to do the leg work of compiling the list of stocks. And… Read More DGI Adventure – 03-06-2016 Dividend Growth Blogosphere Watch List
I fancy myself as a patient, well reasoned investor. I’m not too shaken by short-term gyrations in the market. I like to think that I “get it”. But right now there’s a lot of red…in all of my accounts. I’m not feeling particularly confident at the moment. I’m pretty depressed actually about the whole investing… Read More DGI Adventure – 02-13-2016 Market Musings – Am I Really That Bad at This?
For those of you following along at home, you may have noticed a pattern developing that I try to come up with a watch list every month.

I guess after Mr. Market went bananas last week I started to wonder if this is going to get really ugly. If it gets really ugly, I want a list of really high conviction… Read More DGI Adventure – 01-09-2016 “Growing Champions” Quantitative Watch List
Whoops! Last weekend I ran the dividend contenders list through a set of quantitative filters, and after it was all said and done 13 stocks piqued my interest. Well I screwed up the formula in the cell that calculated the dividend cushion ratio. I accidentally inverted the numerator and denominator in the final ratio calculation,… Read More DGI Adventure – 12-21-2015 CORRECTION – “Growing Contenders” Watch List
Since I published the last watch list, I decided to pull the trigger on CMI, and am already contemplating if I need to buy more to average down. I also put in a limit order for VLO which came awfully close to executing in Friday’s trading session. Here’s hoping it triggers next week. My wife… Read More DGI Adventure – 12-13-2015 “Growing Contenders” Quantitative Watch List
