Dividend Growth Investor Survey

Greetings fellow dividend growth investors!

I am a relatively new dividend growth investor but I’ve been soaking it all up as quickly as I possibly can.  All of the great blogs in the DGI community have been an incredible resource to me and have helped speed up the process.

Now I would like to speed up the process even more and potentially help out all dividend growth investors – beginners and experts.  I’ve decided to put out a brief survey every few months for dividend growth investors with the goal of collecting some useful data for the DGI community.  The results will hopefully spark some new ideas, generate some interesting correlations and help educate new dividend growth investors.  

The survey should only take a minute or two to complete.  All fields are optional but obviously the more you can answer the better.  Once I receive a sufficient amount of data I will post the results.  I’m guessing that I will need at least 30 responses to make the data meaningful and significant so please spread the word.

The survey can be taken on a mobile device but it is not optimal.  If you have any issues or questions about the survey feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of this post.  Thank you for your input!

  1. Filled it out; really look forward to seeing the results! Will you be posting them if you don’t get 30+ responses?

      Hello DD – Thanks for your submission! I will definitely post the results no matter how many responses I get. The “current market feel” section will be informative even with a relatively small amount of data. What I am really looking for, however, are interesting correlations that I might be able to pull out. For example years of experience vs investing style or expected retirement age vs investing style, etc…I think those will be the most interesting to present to the community but unfortunately it will take a lot of data to be meaningful. Hopefully we can get there. Please spread the word so we can make it happen!

    This should be fun to see what you do with it! I hope to skew the results a bit by having a super lower .025% entry yield. I could go even lower honestly. ( If the dividend was predicted to grow 400% each year that’d still be amazing, right?) Also, I didn’t see an option for a combination of automatic and selective investing which I find to be the most effective personally. It’s cool we get to see more of your ‘research scientist’ side come out from this, hehe. Have a good week, Ken!

      Thanks for taking the survey Ryan! I agree with you completely regarding low yields being ok as long as the dividend growth rate is sufficient. I can’t wait to correlate people’s investing style with experience, retirement age, etc…Should be very interesting. Hopefully I can get enough responses to make the correlations significant!

      Sorry for not including a combo option for the “what do you do with your dividend payments” question. This was kind of a bonehead oversight, especially since I actually do a combination of both auto and selective reinvesting as well. Talk soon.

      Thanks Nuno and thanks for your participation! It looks like I might fall short of my target submissions unfortunately but some of the data should still be useful.

    Hi Ken. I just completed the survey. I also both DRIP and selectively reinvest. When do you suspect you’ll be able to release the results?

    • Dividend Empire Dividend Empire says:

      Hi Blake – Thanks for taking the survey! I’ll be sure to make a note when I publish the results that some people both DRIP and reinvest their dividends. For this survey I’ll just have to make the assumption that the answer selected is the one that is most frequently used by the investor. I apologize for this oversight.

      I’m just over halfway to my target after 6 days of collecting data. My original plan was to let the survey run for a week, but I’m thinking now I will at least let it go through the weekend. Hopefully we can get a little more data. Once the survey is closed it will take me at least a day to organize and publish the results (depending on my day job). So short answer – I’m guessing the results will be out by Wednesday next week.

    Ken, great survey. I Hope to see the results soon. I was going to use DEO since it was really down lately – until Friday. It’s funny how the market works.
