Investing in dividend growth stocks is a long-term proposition. One of the beauties of following a dividend growth strategy is that you don’t have to watch your portfolio or the market on a daily basis. For the most part, daily, monthly and yearly movements are just noise in the system.
My normal practice is to refresh my analytical spreadsheets each Friday with updated price information on the 220+ stocks that I follow. Even then, I don’t normally look at the value of my portfolio or the performance of individual stocks.
