"When stock prices fall, dividend growth investors get excited. They know that dividends aren’t affected by stock prices. Dividends are paid out of earnings and earnings are related to revenue, not stock price."
"Dividend growth investors are pretty adept at finding companies that have consistently paid as well as increased their dividends over a period of several years. They also have their own rules on how many years, what’s the minimum yield, and what’s the growth rate needed to initiate a buy. So when the market falls as it has for the last few days, dividend growth investors get excited."
