  1. Nice list, I did look at buying some ADM before, but haven't pull the trigger yet. Might consider it in the future. I don't know much about the Canadian market so haven't really invest in any. Keep up the good work.

    1. ADM looks good. I might wait a little longer. Not sure if we have reached the bottom yet.

  2. Hey Geek, CHD's dividend increases always amaze me. I have looked at the stock several times, but passed due to low yield. My mistake, the yield stays low because the stock keeps going up. Tom

    1. Thanks Tom. In 10-Years CHD has gone up by 260%. In the same time frame S&P 500 is up by 87%. 1.8362% is not a bad yield. I believe it has both growth and income characteristic ... a true Dividend Growth stock :-)
