I was more interested in your strategy than your $ figures. When I first started investing I bought two companies and then added more as more funds became available. Once I got to the 10-15 stocks I quite adding individual stocks and started adding to my positions when a stock was sold off in a knee jerk reaction.
I was more curious to your method of dividend growers. I read an article in one magazine a few months back about Coke and how its yield of 3% now isn't all that impressive but if you had gotten in and held and collected all the dividend increases over the past decade your current yield would be much much greater.
