A place to share info and have discussion, mostly on dividend stocks, but including ETFs, CEFs, mutual funds, and other income producing investments. The overall goal being to build a growing income stream, portfolio growth being secondary. With an abundance of very intelligent and experienced posters, and no real functioning retirement board on SI, imho a good place for any retirement questions or concerns.

My personal favorite book to give any young person. The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason

Two thread favorite reads:

The Single Best Investment: Creating Wealth with Dividend Growth by Lowell Miller

2006 Edition available as a free PDF online. Introduction and first 46 pages required reading imho.

The Ultimate Dividend Playbook: Income, Insight and Independence for Today's Investor by Josh Peters

Here's a handy website (courtesy of another board). The home page gives dividends, total return, dividend growth rate for various time periods and the like for any stock going back as far as 1970.

There's also a drop down menu ( top right ) where you can pull up inflation rate, S&P earnings and the like since 1960.

This site will give you a the 3 and 5 year dividend growth.
