Dividend Growth Investing Versus High-yield Dividend Investing

Dividend growth investing involves investing in companies that have a history of consistently increasing their dividends over time. The goal of this strategy is to build a portfolio of stocks that provides a growing stream of income, rather than relying on a high initial yield. The type of investors who prefer this strategy are looking for a long-term investment that will provide a reliable source of income for many years.

On the other hand, high-yield dividend investing involves investing in companies that have a high dividend yield, which is calculated by dividing the annual dividend by the stock price. Using this strategy, your goal as an investor is to generate a high level of income in the short-term, rather than focusing on long-term capital appreciation. This approach is often preferred by investors who are looking for a more immediate source of income, or who need to generate a high level of income to meet their financial goals.

Both dividend growth investing and high-yield dividend investing have their pros and cons, and the right approach for you will depend on your investment goals and risk tolerance. It's always a good idea to consult with a financial advisor before making any investment decisions.
