29 Point Quantitative and Qualitative Dividend Stock Checklist: The idea is to have a well balanced checklist that causes us to evaluate all the important areas of dividend stock investing (dividends, balance sheet, income statement, cash flow, profitability, and valuation). I have tried to assemble metrics that have proven long term predictability of quality and positive returns.

Sometimes when I write about a stock that is yielding 2%, 3% or even 4%, I get a question that goes something like, "Why would you buy that stock when there are better options like 'Amalgamated Risk?' Its currently yielding 7%, 8%, 9% or more?" With this statement the reader has possibly identified themselves as an income investor, and but definitely established the fact that they are not a dividend growth investor.

Gregg S. Fisher noted in a 2009 Forbes article that the assumption that investors are rational agents is bunk. He went on to say "We are not rational. We’re human. Even the most brilliant investor can be swayed by emotions into making irrational decisions that result in financial loss." Logic has very little to do with short-term movements in stock prices.

The threat of deflation is definitely in the air. If it comes to pass, how should investors position their portfolios to protect and even grow it during this time?

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?'
