    I consider myself a Dividend Growth Investor

    Many do not know what that means but the name says it best. While that is my primary objective, it does not mean that I do not invest in other strategic stocks that may not pay a dividend but have the fundamentals of value to provide growth. There are many who read my messages and believe that I am a Buy and Hold Investor, but as many who really know a good investor is really a Buy and Monitor Investor. One who pays attention will never let an investment drop below his cash basis unless it is in the first Quarter of holding such investments. Of course there are limits and are governed by the trailing stops set up at time of initial purchase. A dividend Growth investor must have patients while watching your investments grow.

    Whenever DG investors run into criticism, it is usually from people who do not follow this style of investing. Those same people will often offer up criticisms that have little or nothing to do with the investment philosophy of the DG investor. I guess because there are so many variables in DG investing and maybe it is difficult for them to understand. They always wait for the big score but in most case's that score never happens. They are quick to point out what they believe to be another's failure without knowing the FACTS. The bottom argument is that it is my money and I like you invest it as I see fit. What works for me and the ideas surrounding those investments are ideas that I share. But in any money decisions that you make it should be based upon what you believe is good FOR YOU, and not necessarily what is good for me.
