Timing Matters

Since M* is an income investor, monitoring income, both dividends and call premiums are one of my basic activities.

I find few income stocks of interest right now, so I am looking at dividend income from the various portfolios.  History may not portend the future but history is the only measure of our success that we can easily use.

2014, so far was the worst time to buy dividend stocks.  At least those I added in 2014 have generated income but hardly any income growth.  Even the 2015 portfolio, which has been challenging delivered more dividend growth than the stocks picked in 2014.

Timing can make a difference but I believe even the 2014 portfolio will eventually catch up. 

Later this week I will present the income comparison of these portfolios.
