March 2024 Newsletter

Welcome to the March edition of my DivGro 2.0 newsletter!

The edition comes in two parts, as I have many more transactions to cover than I normally do. Part 1 covers the February market recap and an overview of my DivGro portfolio, including February's sell transactions. Part 2 covers my February buy transactions and presents this month's top-10 lists of Dividend Radar stocks.

I made a strategic adjustment to my portfolio in February, which required many more trades to execute than I normally do in a month. I increased my investments in stocks with higher dividend growth rates and lower dividend yields.

Why Invest in Low Dividend Yield Stocks?

As a Dividend Growth Investor, I almost exclusively invest in dividend growth stocks with dividend increase streaks of five years or more. Dividend Radar is a free, weekly auto-generated spreadsheet of such stocks.

I believe in a healthy mix of higher-yielding (HiY) stocks and stocks with higher dividend growth rates (HiG stocks) as measured by the 5-year dividend compound annual growth rate, or 5-year DGR for short.

In the past few years, my DivGro portfolio's balance of HiY and HiG positions has shifted towards HiY stocks. To restore a healthier mix of HiY and HiG stocks, I recently closed several HiY positions and increased my investments in HiG stocks with lower yields. As a result, my annual dividend income decreased significantly, but I believe my total return prospects have vastly improved.
