The Future Of The Ladder

Dividend Ladder has been an opportunity to start fresh. I have spent time on other dividend related projects in the past and enjoyed the work. My goal for this website has been to develop useful tools for dividend investors and publish thoughtful lists of well performing dividend-paying stocks.

When I started investing I found it difficult to find solid stocks with high yields. Eventually my frustration lead me to develop my own lists based on a variety of fundamentals. As far as ratings go I am and will forever be limited to what I can list on one page. Anything more than that becomes too complicated.

I also enjoy sharing a few of my life long passions like developing an income fund to take care of my kids college. This personal fund is the income producing business I am focused on growing over the next 15+ years. That is what makes dividend stocks great. They serve as both an investment and a income producing business. Capital appreciation and cash flow all in one. Plus they are extremely liquid allowing us to move fast when we need to.

Developing the tools and lists takes a lot of long hours. Learning investment formulas, writing website code and managing my own portfolio is more than a spare time gig. It’s a real job.

My opinions on the market and dividend stocks are just for fun and discussion. I can only hope that the products and tools I develop make up for my poor writing skills and add value some along the way.

So the future of the Dividend Ladder is coming soon. New tools, new content and a membership section. At first it will be by invitation only. Just a few trial members to help test the tools and view the premium content. Later this year or in 2015 it will be open to the public.

I look forward to hearing from you. Your feedback is really all that matters in the journey to build relevant tools and content. If you have ideas or a need for a function or tool I’d love to hear about it.

Stay in touch with comments or shoot me an email from the contact page. Thanks for reading.


  1. Looking forward to seeing what you have in store! I know I have used the two tools currently available for several investment research projects.

      Thanks Mark. Here is to hoping there is an s on the end of that word. They each take so much time.

    I’m also looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I came across your blog recently and read of using dividend stocks to help pay for your child’s college expenses. It’s something I never thought of since I only started thinking of investing in dividend stocks to take care of my everyday expenses ONLY this year. My wife and I are planning on having children in the next 2-3 years and we were looking at just putting away towards 529. This could be another avenue (potentially better) to look into. Thank you.

      Thanks for the comment Richie. We are both in very similar stages of life. It sounds like you are on a great path.

  3. I’m looking forward to see what new content you are able to bring forward DL. I’ve very much enjoyed reading some of your less conventional and less widely know dividend stocks analysis.
