The True Significance of Dow 20,000 (And Some Still Undervalued Stocks Worth Buying)

Posted On January 26, 2017 1:34 am

As much fun as is it to celebrate completely arbitrary round numbers, and pretend that today is “the greatest day in human history”, in reality Dow 20,000 is meaningless, and shouldn’t affect your investing decisions one bit. After all, historically the market goes up and to the right, meaning it rises over time. Yes there are painful corrections and crashes, as well as epic bull runs, like we’ve seen since March of 2009. But at the end of the day new market highs don’t mean that we should forget that the best method for running your portfolio is to operate it like a business.

That means buying, holding (as long as the investment thesis is intact), adding on dips, and reinvesting the dividends. Of course when the market is making new highs, and trading at historically frothy levels, many value focused investors are worried that there is no place to invest new cash. In reality that is almost never the case. Below are some grade A dividend growth stocks that are trading at appealing valuations. In fact, I’m currently working on a special exclusive report about the 10 best stocks to buy right now, which should be out next week (so don’t forget to join my free mailing list).

I currently write for both Seeking Alpha, Simply Safe Dividends, and DividendSensei.com My goal is to help all people learn how to harness the awesome power of dividend growth investing to achieve their financial dreams, and enrich their lives. With 22 years of investing experience, I've learned what works and more importantly, what doesn't, when it comes to building long-term wealth and income streams. I'm currently on an epic quest to build a broadly diversified, high-quality, high-yield dividend growth portfolio that: 1. Pays a 5% yield 2. Offers 7% annual dividend growth 3. Pays dividends AT LEAST on a weekly, but preferably, daily basis
