In memory of David Fish, a dividend champion

In memory of David Fish, a dividend champion.
I learned today that David Fish, the creator of the US Dividend Champions CCC list has passed away. He will be sorely missed.

David’s simple list, faithfully published monthly over the last ten years, was one of the tools I used when starting out investing. It provided an elegant entry point into DGI investing.

The list derived its name from its grouping of companies into three tiers of dividend growth: Contenders, Challengers and Champions, with lengths of 5-9, 10-24 and 25+ years respectively.

Although I never met David, he inspired many investors and the DGI investing style he favored encouraged a long-term buy and hold strategy.

If you’ve been helped by David’s list, please take a moment to visit his guestbook.

Thank you David. My deepest condolences to your family.

Rest in peace.
