I wanted to thank you all for reading the Dividend Growth Investor website. This site is a result of my efforts to improve my investing over time, write down and organize my thoughts, and make myself do the work to form an opinion on companies to invest in.
I find it helpful to write down my position on a given topic, and then revisit it a few years later, in order to learn from it. I would encourage all of you to keep an investment journal in private or in public, in order to write down reasons behind your strategy and the investment selections you are making. After a few years, you should be able to learn from your mistakes, and hopefully find ways to improve your results.
The way to improve is by gathering data, and analyzing the results against your expectations. I followed this approach to find out the most read articles on the Dividend Growth Investor website.
I have compiled a list of eight articles that readers found helpful in 2016, as evidenced by number of visits. The articles include:
1) How to set up your own perpetual income machine
2) 24 Dividend Champions for Further Research
3) Nine Attractively Valued Dividend Stocks to Consider
4) My Five Largest Dividend Portfolio Holdings for the Long Term
5) Building a Core Dividend Growth Portfolio With These Eight Companies
6) Dividend Aristocrats List for 2016
7) Dividend Aristocrats for Dividend Growth and Total Returns
8) Dividend Champions - The Best List for Dividend Investors
It is very nice to see that my readers are interested in the tools of the trade, such as the lists of dividend champions and dividend aristocrats, which many use as their starting point in their screening process. It is also interesting to see that readers like actionable lists of companies for further research that they can analyze in more detail.
Thank you again for reading.
