The Common Sense Case For Dividend Growth Investing


Why do people invest?

It’s an easy question to overthink, but the obvious answer is to make money.

The purpose of making money from your investments tends to be to reach financial freedom and retirement.  And that means creating a passive income stream.

Passive Income & Dividend Growth Investing

Long-term dividend growth stock investing combines the primary reason most people invest – passive income – with the tried-and-true wisdom that underlies successful investing.

As the name implies, dividend growth investing puts an emphasis on both growth and dividends.  This means looking for companies that have proven they can pay rising dividends over the long run.

Dividend growth stocks are the rare investment vehicle that not only produces income, but has a high likelihood of producing rising income over time.

Emphasizing dividend growth also means investors pay attention to the underlying business of the stock in which you are investing.

For a company to pay rising dividends year-after-year for decades, it must have favorable long-term economic characteristics and a reasonably competent and honest management team.

Dividend Growth Investing Performance

Dividend growth investing doesn’t just sound appealing.  It has performed well historically.
