Back To The Future: Lessons Learned From 3 Dividend Growth Stocks I Bought On 09/09/09

I love movies about time travel and Back To The Future is one of my all time favorites.

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if I found myself back in the past with my present knowledge. Or, if I could travel into the future, what information would I look for to bring back to the present day?

In this article, I "travel" back to 09/09/09 when I bought 3 dividend growth stocks for my wife's IRA. I look at the performance of these stocks over 7.5 years of ownership and explain why I decided to keep them now that I'm managing my wife's IRA's as part of DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks.

I share some lessons learned and briefly "travel" to 09/09/24 to see what we can expect from DivGro some 7.5 years into the future. Nobody knows what the stock market will do, but I can "know" certain things if I continue to follow a dividend growth investment strategy.

Please read this article over at Seeking Alpha.
