There are serious advantages to investing in individual, high quality dividend growth stocks:

  • You know what you own
  • You can avoid overvalued stocks
  • You can minimize portfolio turnover
  • You learn about business and investing
  • There are no investment management fees
  • You can tailor your portfolio to match your needs
  • You can build a portfolio designed specifically for income growth
