As an early thanksgiving exercise, I owe some major appreciation to this investing concept, its progenitor, the wise fools on this board, and the Chartmaster General.

Mostly a lurker for most of the decade+ but I use this stuff...even more as time goes on. I recently segmented a portion of my total retirement portfolio into a Dividend Growth basket with the goal of achieving a 15% dividend yield on initial capital within 15 years. The only real path to these numbers is finding companies with the potential to maintain long-term dividend growth AND a current high yield. The BMW concept and charts are invaluable in helping me find entry points that work with this strategy and give me some comfort about building in safety.

These may not all work out in the end but 2020 purchases of MMM, IBM, OMC, and WBA below the -2 RMS are buys I wouldn't have tracked or made without all of your contributions. The same goes for at least 10 others over the last 10+ years that have worked out quite well. :)

With much appreciation to you all...sincerely.
