Dividend Stocks

First of all, dividend stocks are my absolute favorite type of investment. I can’t gush about them enough for their wealth-building capabilities.

Furthermore, dividend stocks are a big part of Dividends Diversify.

Do you know what I like to say? “Build wealth one dividend at a time”. It’s that simple.

So, they sit close to the top of our wealth-building pyramid.

Let’s cover all of our bases on this investing strategy.

3. Making Money From Dividends

What is the “dividends deluxe” model portfolio?

It is a deep list of some of my favorite dividend growth stocks. Click on the stock of your choice and it will take you to the latest dividend stock review I have completed for the company.

Dividend Stock Review Process

Each stock analysis and review is based on what I call the dividend deep dive. The dividend deep dive is my process for analyzing a dividend stock.

I like to buy and hold my dividend stocks forever. And, most of the time I am successful in doing so.

On the other hand, sometimes I make a mistake investing in the wrong company. Or, my initial assumptions regarding dividend growth or dividend safety do not meet my expectations as time passes.

In the worst situation, a company may reduce its dividend. Finally, in some circumstances, a company is acquired or merged out of existence.

Whatever the case, sometimes I no longer hold a specific dividend stock. And when I sell, I no longer hold the stock in the Dividends Deluxe model portfolio. Nor do I maintain the dividend stock analysis.

5. Fill Out Your Dividend Calendar

Get dividends every month!

Many dividend investors like to identify stocks by when they pay their dividends. In order to smooth out their stream of passive income cash flows.

Timing of dividend payments shouldn’t be your only reason for investing in a stock. But, it is something to consider as you make your investments.

To help you out, here are several articles to help fill out your dividend calendar:

6. Dividend Stock Groups & Sectors For Building Your Foundation

Do your stock research!

Dividend stocks are typically clustered in certain sectors of the stock market. Or, other logical groupings.

Periodically I will pick a sector or stock group and analyze a few stocks within it to compare and contrast. Highlight a specific issue the sector is encountering. Or, simply pick a theme and present dividend stock ideas that fit that theme.

Furthermore, everyone has to start somewhere. It would be nice if you had the money to invest in 25 or 30 dividend stocks, but that may not be the case.

If so, start with 1 and try to quickly build to at least 3 dividend stocks for diversification. Then shoot for 5.

Here are several different groups of dividend stocks to consider. Hopefully, there is an article here that fits your needs as a dividend investor…

7. Other Ways to Get Your Dividends

Individual stocks are not the only way to invest in dividend stocks. There are plenty of mutual funds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), and even robo-advisors that can do the work for you.

Learn about some excellent options here:

Get the idea that I am a big fan of Vanguard dividend stock ETF’s? If so, you are right on.
