Welcome to our exclusive educational series on Dividend Growth Investing (DGI). This series of Lessons proceeds from basic concepts (what is a dividend?) to advanced investing techniques (how to find great DGI stocks).

We are happy to note that during 2018, all of the Lessons are being revised by Dave Van Knapp, who created the original Lessons in 2013-2017. You can see the Lessons in action in Dave’s Dividend Growth Stock of the Month series as well as in his Dividend Growth Portfolio.
