What Should A Dividend Growth Investor Buy In 2021?

This is very funny. Before I started to write this introduction, I went back and read the 2020 forecast edition of my top picks for 2020, and here is how it started:

“Many readers have written to tell me they are sitting on some cash ready to be invested. Some of you sold a rental property or quit their job and received their pension plan value and decided to manage that pile of money on their own. Some others choose to keep their powder dry in order to capture market inefficiencies.

Fast forward one year, I bet that many of you may be in the same situation: waiting with a pile of cash. 2020 was crazy, I’ll give you that. In the end, it will be just another blip in the stock market’s history. The key was and still is a solid investment plan and a portfolio that is well-diversified. Those are always your best protections against anything that may be coming our way.

When is the right time to deploy a massive amount of money and what does a dividend growth investor buy in 2021?

Long-time readers will know that my answer to this question is “today”. Today is always the second-best time to invest your money. The best time was yesterday. But I know that no matter how many times I share this thought with you, some will be reluctant to act. Instead of showing you why investing now is crucial in your investing plan, let’s take care of that reluctance instead.

Do you know how we travelled for 1 year with no savings, a mortgage and 3 kids?

That’s right. In 2016, we bought a 25’ motorhome that we named “Freefall”, and we drove all the way down to Costa Rica with our three kids. We made the decision to leave everything behind for this dream during the summer of 2014 and we left on June 4th, 2016. The first two questions most people ask me when I announced that project are:

“How did you save enough money to be able to travel for an entire year?”

Short answer: I had virtually no savings (we left with $3K in our bank account).
