I like to write a lot, but I also like to read a lot.
I spend a lot of my free time reading posts of other bloggers and also books and novels, not only about investing but about society, freedom, real life stories etc…
Last week-end, I felt it was time for me to read 1984 from George Orwell for another time in my life… I think I read that book at least a dozen times.
Orwell has written some of the most interesting quotes I’ve read about our society. One of the best, to my own belief, is :
The best books… are those that tell you what you know already.
I think it resumes it all! I know what he tried to describe. I fully understand what he meant. That is why I loved that book! 🙂
On another topic, I also read great posts from my favorite bloggers :
This was a nice post. Honestly, I like the allegory he made about different types of stocks to include in a portfolio. Jason separates stocks in three categories : high yield + low growth, moderate yield + moderate growth, low yield + high growth.
Each of these categories can perform part of the job in building a nice diversified dividend growth portfolio.
I highly recommend you read that post.
Some companies are just amazing. But how amazing? Imagine a stock that would have paid a dividend every year for more than a 100 years?! These stocks exist!
Some of these stocks are Coca-Cola (KO), Colgate-Palmolive (CL), Procter & Gamble (PG)… But, I’ll let you read that post from Keith Park’s blog www.divhut.com.
The single best investment
Last, but not least, I recently had the chance to read Lowell Miller’s book The Single Best Investment: Creating Wealth with Dividend Growth.
I think this is a must read for all dividend growth stock investors. It gives a lot of great tools to help us build a well-oiled dividend cash machine!
