Dividend Disasters And What I Learned From Them
By Larry Harnar:
I've been reading Seeking Alpha for a few years now, and I really enjoy the wide variety of topics that are covered. Of particular interest to me is the dividends and income section and the idea of building a portfolio of dividend growth stocks that will provide for me down the road.I have learned so much about dividend growth investing from reading the awesome and powerful works of great investors like Chuck Carnevale, David Fish, David Van Knapp, and David Crosetti.However, I guess I still have a knowledge deficit, because I continue to hold two of the worst performing stocks in recent memory in hopes of getting back to even. Today, I'd like to talk about the dividend disaster that is Arch Coal (ACI) and the potential dividend disaster in the making, Avon (AVP).
