Regular readers of this column know that I’m a big fan of dividend growth investing. It’s a subject very close to my heart – and my wallet. Having invested in dividend stocks for more than a decade, I can tell you I’m very pleased with the results. I’ve also heard from scores of readers – many of whom have been at it much longer than I have – who can attest to the merits of this simple but powerful strategy.

Today, I’ll explain why, in my opinion, it’s an appropriate strategy for many do-it-yourself investors. Here are five reasons to love dividend growth investing. 1. It’s easy to understand, 2. It discourages trading, 3. It’s well-suited to lazy people, 4. It protects you from inflation and 5. It works.
