I know very little about hockey, but I have always loved this quote:
I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been."
- Wayne Gretzky
It can be applied to so many things in life, including investing in Dividend Growth Stocks. Just as Gretzky has a vision as to where the puck is going, investors need to have a similar vision, and not get caught up on short-sighted distractions...

Any income investor will tell you that it is important for a company to sustain its dividend. However, as an investor in dividend growth stocks, it is not enough to simply sustain the dividend – we want to own companies that are capable of sustained dividend growth. Needless to say, this is a little more difficult to accomplish, but well-worth the time to find companies that can deliver on this expectation...

I have always had a deep fascination with investing. I like learning about different ways to make money, strategies, and investments. It is always fascinating to watch how others make money in the markets, as you can always learn something from it.

Every week, I review the list of dividend increases as part of my monitoring process. I usually focus my attention on companies that have managed to boost annual dividends for at least a decade. This increases the odds of identifying companies that pay dependable dividends, and are committed to growing them over time.

Has someone near and dear to you responded with a 'I was only trying to help' after royally messing something up? Have you ever tinkered with a computer, smart phone or something else only to learn it no longer works and you are not sure how to fix it? Our dividend stock investments can suffer the same fate if we provide them with too much of the wrong type of attention...

- I learned a lot from this book: what makes us sleepy, how daytime and nighttime sleep differ, and a lot of techniques for how to make a baby sleep.
- This book felt like a reference book, as it covers a lot of months/years of a child's life, and is some 400 pages thick.
- It's also very repetitive; it is probably one of those books that could have been an article.

Despite a constantly negative narrative from analysts, Best Buy is as strong as ever - but the market hasn't fully recognized it yet.

Over time we tend grow fond of people we have a relationship with. Sometimes we grow to love them like a brother or sister; sometimes even more. In much the same way we can easily grow to love certain stocks, but this is not necessarily a good thing. It is easy to be captivated with a top performer. Everyone loves a winner. To achieve our long-term investing goals we must remove emotion from the equation. It is a recipe for disaster when we make investing decisions based on a past relationship with a stock that is contrary to the current fact pattern.

- We had a great conversation that ranged from investing in microcaps, to bank investing, and some background on how I got started.
- Scattered throughout old posts are theories on how I look at investments and how I find new ideas.
- One question I'm asked over and over is "How do you find investments?" and "How do you evaluate investments?" In one sense finding an oddball investment is like finding my posts on how I do it.

Every week, I review the list of dividend increases as part of my monitoring process. I usually focus on companies I already own. However, I also focus on companies that have raised dividends for at least a decade, in order to observe their performance from the grounds up. Over the past week, there were several companies that raised dividends. In the case of Diageo, I missed this company during my review last week, which is why I wanted to include it here. I have highlighted the ones that have managed to reward shareholders with a raise for at least ten years in a row.
