This site is dedicated to three very specific types of investors:

  • Value Investors who want to own quality businesses at half price or less
  • High Yield Income Investors who want to generate double digit annualized yields from low risk stocks
  • Dividend Growth Investors who want to rapidly accelerate their dividend income and dividend growth rates

(Now obviously, I can't make any predictions or guarantees what your results will be if you incorporate any of my ideas, but those are my personal objectives and documented results.)
