A cornerstone of dividend growth investing is to stay focused on buying quality assets and ignoring the noise surrounding uncontrollable parts of the economy. I have employed this measure and look for decent opportunities whether the stock market is up or down. My only focus is to increase my dividends year after year and try not to time the market in order to attempt outperformance. While there are some good value finds in sectors such as energy, commodities and financials, one sector that has shrunk in my portfolio is healthcare. I decided to put some cash to work in this sector as I am confident that it will do well over the course of years to come.
