Sharp post.

When I think of dividend growth investing I think of the popular big names, KO, PEP, MCD, JNJ, PG etc. I haven't ventured into any health care REITS or anything like that. I think the high yields might lure people into investing in stuff they don't understand. Then they end up getting hurt. The example you laid out and digging through the 10Q is a great example of a potential land mine.

I firmly believe that if you DGI, due to the margin of safety, you can have a higher equity percentage of your portfolio cetris paribus.
