Dividend Stock Newsletter:
I recently launched a dividend growth newsletter. Hundreds of people have signed up, and I’ll be publishing the first issue in early March. To be clear, there will be material in the newsletter that isn’t on the blog. So it’s “exclusive” content, but you can be included for free. You can sign up here:

In the meantime, you may notice I’m doing some graphic design work on my site. I’ve streamlined the layout, simplified the sidebar, and removed some ads and clutter. I’m still doing some testing, so if you see things change from time to time for a little while, that’s why.

  1. Ill grab that natural gas link!

    Thanks for the mention of defensiven. If you want you could update the link as it seems to lead to the startpage and not the specific article. The translator tool can be messy.. It seems like one have to open an article in its own window to get the specific link.

    • Ok, I switched in the new link.

      I’ll try what you said in the future- about opening up the page in a separate window. I’ve had the issue before regarding linking to individual posts on your site with the translator, what was why I was linking to your untranslated site for a while and reminding readers that there’s a translate button.

  2. Thanks for the mention!

    I’m looking forward to your newsletter Matt. You’ve got great content on this site, and looking forward to what the newsletter has in store :)

    Stay in touch often,

  3. Matt, thanx for the mention! :)

  4. Matt,

    Thanks for including me! Much appreciated.

    Have a great weekend.

  5. DM, thanks for the mention.
