What a beautifully done website! I added it to my favorite list of dividend investment bookmarks. Thank you for the time and effort you've obviously put into this site and for sharing it.

Thanks, glad you enjoyed it!

Posted a new blog today breaking down a comment made by Chowder on Seeking Alpha. 

Discusses: dividend reinvestment, staying invested, quality over valuation, and staying focused on long-term results rather than short-term price swings.

Last night I finished a big update to the DGI For The DIY site by adding a section on the Dividend Growth 50. The DG50 was a project by Mike Nadel that asked ten authors from Seeking Alpha (myself included) to select their best 50 "all-occasion" DGI companies for today's market. Mike then took those picks, invested $25,000 of his own retirement savings into them, and turned them into his new version of the Dividend Growth "Nifty Fifty". He now regularly provides updates on this portfolio and documents its progress.

I've been wanting to add more permanent content to the site for some time, and after talking things through with Mike, felt this would be a good project to highlight and introduce to more readers. I think the premise behind Mike's work was an excellent idea, and am thankful he asked me to participate in it as one of the collaborators.

With this web page my goal is to explain the history of the project and its progress to date, and to show the effectiveness of creating a diversified portfolio of high-quality dividend growth companies for new investors. I will continue to add links to Mike's articles as they are published, and think this should be a nice resource for dividend growth investors looking for ideas on building their own portfolios.

Enjoy!

Thanks for posting that. We've got a lot of overlap in that May list, but you've also got a couple that I've never looked into, although they've been on my radar in the past: CLDT & CBRL. I'll have to review them again sometime.

Cracker Barrel has been a great company for me, and I really like their business model. Slow expansion and consistent store revenues mean good cash flows available for shareholders.

CLDT on the other hand is a bit more volatile, as lodging REITs are highly impacted by changes in the economy. It isn't a high conviction position for me, but I'm content to keep holding and reinvesting dividends in it. It seems to have decent management and good properties, but is struggling a bit to produce growth right now.
