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.
