The ideal result of this process would be to be able to buy shares in at least one dividend producing company each week. This would result in incrementally increasing my total annual income each and every week. It's one of the nice benefits to being a Dividend Growth Investor in the first place. Then, despite whether the economy became uncertain, slowing or stagnant, my personal income would increase every week. And that's the kind of personal financial security everyone wants.
Just as important, I would actually control the amount of income increase I'd receive based upon the yield of the security I chose to invest in. That knowledge and ability to control the amount of income increase is a rather empowering feeling. It's also rather addictive.
Each week I review all the companies that are increasing their dividends to decide if they're possible candidates for accumulation. If they are, I compare those companies against the ones I already own. I then make the decision on which company or companies I'll invest in that week.
When all is said and done, I relax and smile knowing that I now make more money than I did last week, last month and last year. It's really a very nice feeling.
