    Re: Actual Dividend Growth Portfolio

    I fell a little behind again on documenting this. Grandkids visited and then I broke my elbow. Just now starting to return back to normal. When I was catching up I discovered I made slight mistakes on two previous stocks. When they had a .05 share increase I posted them as .5, overstating the income a little. Rather than going back and doing all the recalculating I just used the revised lower figure. So it shows a tiny decline this time, although in reality it did not actually decline.

    We've now hit the 4 year mark. As predicted, our income has gone up every year (and month). We had one dividend cut along the way, but the increases buried that before it even showed up.

    As of Aug 31 - $219.39
    One Month Ago - $219.75
    One Year Ago - $140.75
    Two Years Ago - $110.14
    Three Years Ago - $61.46
    Four Years Ago - $4.05

    September will be a purchase month. I will probably be purchasing $300 worth of HASI, a REIT I like that finances green projects.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    Jax in regards to REIT's, what are your favorites. I have played around with the idea of starting to put money into REIT's as a way to "own" property without the hassles of "owning" property. I have looked at O as well as a few ETF's, but never pulled the trigger on anything. Normally I get close to buying but something but I get a better idea.

    I know what you mean. I stay fully invested all the time and reinvest all my dividends except for a couple stocks that I am over allocated in. With their dividends I buy other stocks. There are so many stocks I like!!

    O is an incredible stock but pretty pricey these days.

    The two I really like are a little different REITS. One is PEGI - which is a Wind Energy REIT. Pays about 6.7%, they build windmills and sell the power for like 15 years. Practically a utility to me but pays way more than utility.

    The other is HASI - Which is technically a mortgage REIT but not like most. They loan money for green projects. Pays about 5% now.

    Both of them have been consistently raising dividends.

    By the way... I'm in these for the $$ and not the social factors. I'm a walking contradiction. I have some stocks like these, I drive a totally electric car (Nissan Leaf) and a hybrid (Prius V - a car hardly anyone knows about)..... yet I am a hard core, ultra-conservative Republican.

    Re: Actual Dividend Growth Portfolio

    I'm a big fan of DCT Industrial Trust, which is an industrial REIT. I worked on their IPO a long time ago (so no material non-public information), and I was very impressed with their team, just about all of whom are still there. I spent significant time with a number of public company management teams, and none of them impressed me as much as these guys.

    Peeked at DCT. They have had quite a runup recently and dividend is down to 2.3%. As an retired income investor my floor which I seldom violate is 4%. For a longer term investor they might be quote solid.

    Re: Actual Dividend Growth Portfolio

    Wish you were with me on ADP. Upped their dividend 10.5% this week. It's also up 60% since I first mentioned it here.

    I have a 3/4 sized position in ADP - appreciate the heads up on getting a raise - I missed that this week.
