In the middle of 2010, I purchased this blog mainly because I wanted to switch my portfolio from an aggressive growth model to a dividend investing model. I took me about 6 months to trade my non dividend paying stocks in order to rebuild my portfolio. Since then, I’ve kept only one stock that doesn’t pay dividends (and it’s down sharply now). When I look at the rest of my portfolio (i.e. the dividend stocks), I can say that I’ve made some good trades. In a few weeks, I’ll add another $5,000 to my portfolio and now it’s time to set my dividend investing goals for the year.
