Comment on Retooling my Undervalued Dividend Growth Screen Metrics by Evan http://www.myjourneytomillions.com/articles/retooling-my-undervalued-dividend-growth-screen-metrics/#comment-516767 Mon, 15 Jan 2018 23:12:12 +0000 http://www.myjourneytomillions.com/?p=16010#comment-516767 A lot of the podcasts I follow use FCF as well. I’d love if you can share a bit more how you use it? Have you written a post or town on the subject?

It takes freaking forever already! To have to open up another tab would deter me. Doesn’t book value take into account debt? Would the company be screened out that way?

Comment on January 2018 Net Worth Update by Evan http://www.myjourneytomillions.com/articles/january-2018-net-worth-update/#comment-516765 Mon, 15 Jan 2018 23:07:51 +0000 http://www.myjourneytomillions.com/?p=15978#comment-516765 I would have to say it is absolutely the market moving everything. I don’t actively value my home, but last January I did move the paper value of it 3%. This was the first move I made in the 4 years of owning the home. I never understood when people painstakingly focused on the value of their home. It is so freaking illiquid.

I am hoping my DGI portfolio (with the puts sold) is the big driver in 2018!

Did the market provide the biggest boost to your net worth, or perhaps new investments, or home appreciation? Either way, you are obviously on the right track. I’ll be looking forward to see what you do as you ramp up your dividend growth investing. Take care.

I tend to use FCF to compute dividend payout ratio

For screening purposes it might be better to use ROIC instead of ROE since ROE can get juiced up by debt levels. ROIC let’s you know what the business is earning on the total amount of capital, debt and equity, invested in the business.

Comment on What Does it Mean to Buy Your Stocks Like Groceries? by Evan http://www.myjourneytomillions.com/articles/mean-buy-stocks-like-groceries/#comment-516508 Thu, 11 Jan 2018 14:04:21 +0000 http://www.myjourneytomillions.com/?p=13313#comment-516508 Ah man, I keep having this fight with my brother! He is always chasing the next penny stock and it is very frustrating. If I am going to gamble I’ll keep it to the casino (for the most part – we all fold sometimes lol).

Finding deals on quality companies will always give you the best bang for your buck and most satisfaction. Their brand is proven.

Chasing (generic) penny stock companies and other get-rich-quick schemes will get you a whole lot of nothing but a foul taste in your mouth (Hydrox).
