The number of reccommendations given out on this board has been terrible!! I'd like to point out that there seems to be many helpful posters to this board, and they are very deserving pf receiving your recommendations for the information they so selflessly provide us.

If you are a relatively new member you can say "thank-you" to a poster you find helpful, by clicking on the blue words "recommend it" at the right hand corner of the post. Although I'm sure most of these helpful soles would give their time and energies to helping anyway it can be a helpful sign of recognition if you increase a poster's total number of recommendation and rec/ratio.

Posters are often judged on the basis of such numbers elsewhere by other readers and it can help a poster gain credibility if he has a higher number of posts or high rec-to-post ratio.

Posters such as Quill-And-Pen, JeanWa, Foolbar73, friendlygirl, TMFJeanie, and many others I can't recall offhand are continuously giving very helpful suggestions and information. They are deserving of this small token of recognition in this respect.

Each of us is limited in respect to how many recs we can give each day. But one idea might be to visit this board after you're finished elsewhere and give out your remaining recs to those who you think have been helpful to other posters. I try to do this if I have time. I think people who have been repeatedly helpful deserve such special thanks.

Thanks for listening. Now go rec somebody!!

Oh, and the secret to investing? I'd forgotten about that. Well, it is dividend growth. If you're interested in this you might want to read some of my past posts on the subject, do a keyword search on "dividend growth", or "dividends", under TMF Articles, or read Dividends Don't Lie by Geraldine Weiss, or The Dividend Rich Investor, by the editors of S&P's Outlook. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
