Mark (My Own Advisor) and I have been blogging friends for a long time. One thing we have in common is definitely our strong belief in dividend investing. When people hear the words “dividend investing” some think that we are talking about stocks paying 5% or 6% or 7% dividend. If you have been around for a while you’ve probably even benefited from the “black gold rush” with Albertan oil income trusts paying double digit dividends. If you want to become a successful investor, the first thing you should do is to ignore high dividend yield securities and concentrate on quality dividend stocks.
