I understand the "high yield portfolio" (stock in companies with high dividend payouts or a fund of them), but I don't understand "lower yielding portfolio that grows its dividend amount rapidly". Examples, please!

I use the Exchange Traded Fund DVY as a realistic example that you should be able to beat. It currently yields 3.6% and grows 6% or 7% (latest reading) per year. However, dividend Exchange Traded Funds are new.

Mergent's has a paperback on Dividend Achievers--companies that have long histories of dividend growth.

The Motley Fool has an income product that specializes in stocks. I don't know how well it does, but I would consider it.

Morningstar's Josh Peters has a goal of 8% to 10% growth in his lower yielding portfolio. So far, so good--but it is new.

There are other sources.

Right now, the drug companies are well priced. Johnson N Johnson JNJ has a very long history of fast dividend growth. I don't know its current yield. But consider the entire sector. Pfizer has an outstanding yield. There is some concern over its new drugs, but I think that it is overdone.

Have fun.
