Dividend Growth Check Up - 2018

The turn of the calendar to the new year is a good time to reflect on the previous year to see how things change.  I take the time to look back on the year that was to see how my dividend growth portfolio performed.  Not from a return perspective; rather from a purely dividend growth perspective.  Since my goal is to build up a portfolio of excellent companies that pay me cold, hard cash in the form of dividends, to support our lifestyle it's the dividends that are the most important part of the portfolio with capital appreciation taking the backseat.  

The thing is dividends are much more steady and predictable than capital appreciation for any given year.  Most of the companies I own increased their dividend at some point during 2018; however, the manic/depressive Mr. Market changed his tune multiple times throughout the year.

That's why I want to focus on the dividends that my investments pay me each year and how much they grow each year.
