The lowest 20 percent of stocks ranked by Altman Z-score are placed in the first quintile and the next 20 percent in the second quintile and so forth until we have five portfolios of stocks.
The first quintile seems to match the performance of S&P 500 equal weight benchmark for most years, but started underperforming in the second half of 2015 until then the end of 2017.
The top 20% of stocks as ranked by Altman Z-score surprisingly underperformed the benchmark in the 2000 to 2017 time period.

I recently obtained the data behind the performance behind dividend and non dividend payers in the S&P 500 per year. This is a calculation performed by the index committee that separates members of S&P 500 into dividend paying and non dividend paying, and then equally weighting those portfolios. The performance of an equal weighted portfolio of dividend stocks is compared to the performance of an equal weighted portfolio of non dividend paying stocks

The dream of dividend growth investing is a dream about passive income -- An ever growing stream of passive income that lasts for decades and requires very little work to maintain.
That was my dream anyway, and for the most part I achieved it.
Unfortunately, the dream of passive income is easier to dream about than it is to achieve. It takes work. Dividends don't just keep growing out of "thin air" -- Companies have to actively make the right moves to keep those beautiful dividends growing.

Dividend growth investing encourages long term buy and hold investing. With dividend growth investing you buy a company with a rising dividend at the right price, and you then hold on to it for as long as the dividend is at least maintained. You ignore all the noise out there, and keep holding.

Imagine if you had $1 million dollars at the end of 2007. You decide to invest this money in the list of the original dividend champions companies. How would you have fared if you had invested that money in the dividend champions almost a decade ago?
I have thought about the answers to this question many times. A few weeks ago I decided to start doing the work to answer it for myself. I always enjoy doing the hard work myself in order to form my opinions.

Over diversification is a serious and common mistake that decreases investment returns disproportionately to the benefits received. Many investors have learned the harmful effects of under diversification and mistakenly believe that the more diversification the better. In portfolio management this concept is totally false.
