Dividends4Life: Accountant Picks His Dividend Stocks Carefully

Michael Weber is saving a large portion of his salary and investing in stocks with growing dividends. He has crunched the numbers and estimates he can build up enough dividend income to become financially independent by his late 40s. Mr. Weber screens for stocks that have had their dividends raised for at least five consecutive years. The companies making the grade are subjected to a thorough analysis.

Dividend investors are sometimes accused of looking just at dividends. For Mr. Weber, it’s also important to buy dividend stocks at good prices. He uses valuation yardsticks (price-to-earnings, price-to-book, etc.) to conservatively estimate a fair price – and waits patiently for it to come around. “I’m usually waiting for a few months before I buy something,” Mr. Weber discloses.
