Are ETFs and CEFs Good Dividend Growth Investments?

Rating:

Investing in dividend growth stocks is not about buying high-yield stocks to generate a high income. Instead, this form of dividend investing is all about finding solid dividend growth stocks that are reasonably priced and are expected to continue raising their dividends in the future. Most of the time their current yields aren't eye-popping, but the growing divdends over time will more than compensate for the lower current yield.
A question I get on occasion is 'are Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) and Closed Ended Funds (CEFs) a good fit for a dividend growth strategy?'

6 Companies With The Power of 5/15 Dividend Growth

Rating: 
Average: 5 (1 vote)

If you have examined one of my stock analyses, you may have noticed the metric "Rolling 4-yr Div. > 15%". This calculation determines if a company's dividends grew on average in excess of 15% for each consecutive 4-year period, within the last 10 years of history.

Taking this undeniable math principle into consideration, it often makes sense to purchase a stock with a lower yield but with a higher growth rate. Here are few companies that have the power of 5/15...

Taleb contrasts harm with ruin and explains how the differences imply different rules of behavior when dealing with the risk of each. Taleb argues that when considering the riskiness of GMOs, the right understanding of statistics is more valuable than expertise in biology or genetics.
