Dividend Growth Investing = More Money, Less Stress
“When you have confidence, you can have a lot of fun. And when you have fun, you can do amazing things.”
My entire portfolio is invested in dividend growth stocks. Some holdings act as “fixed income” as they offer a stable dividend yield and can weather market storms. Some others are my “growth equity” as they offer lower yield, but strong dividend growth and stock price appreciation potential. The combination of various dividend growers will create a balance where your portfolio will help you retire stress-free.
Strangely enough, even Vanguard (a pioneer in ETF investing) conducted its own studies on the recent market history and concluded that dividend growers are among the best-performing assets.
