Another eventful year in the market has come to a close, and that means it is time to provide a new update on my dividend growth portfolio.
This update is a bit different for me, as it is the first one I’ve made since starting this new website. I’m still trying to find balance between simply restating what I already said in my Seeking Alpha update, and providing some new insight here.
2016 was a good one for the markets, as the DJIA gained more than 15%, while the S&P gained 11% for the year. My portfolio also did quite well, putting up 15.6% income growth and increasing in value by 24.1% (including contributions).
Welcome to D.G.I. for the D.I.Y., a new blog dedicated to Do-It-Yourself, Dividend Growth Investors.
In the coming days and weeks I will be adding content to the site and work towards building a library of information relevant to the Dividend Growth Investing methodology.
Some content I look forward to sharing are my personal, sector-based watch lists covering the best dividend paying companies in the stock market. I also plan to create an organized outlay of some of the articles I’ve written about on DGI.
I will also create an index of my favorite educational articles from some of the top writers on Seeking Alpha and elsewhere, as well as links to some of my favorite sites I use in my own research.
Finally, I hope to write frequent updates about dividend news from some of my favorite stocks, and share my ideas on possible good buys in the market.
I’m excited about the potential for this site, and hope it comes close to meeting my expectations. My goal is to create the “go-to” site for self-directed individuals interested in learning about Dividend Growth Investing.
