The Wealth Builder Carnival #28

Welcome to twenty-eighth edition of The Wealth Builder Carnival. The purpose of this carnival is to collect articles from the blogosphere on building, preserving and keeping enough wealth for a comfortable retirement. For reference, I have tried to keep the carnival content tightly focused on wealth building and did not include submissions that were off topic.

For reading convenience, the posts are listed with a brief summary or comment by the submitter and organized them into seven categories: Earning, Investing, Insuring and Protecting, Living Frugally, Retiring, Saving and Taxes.

And now onto the Carnival:

Ultimately, dividend growth investors realize that long-term and sustainable high-yield investments are grown over time. This is accomplished by purchasing high-quality dividend investments with a reasonable yield and a long history of growing their dividends, and waiting for the yield on cost to grow."

Mike Piper presents Investing Life Insurance Proceeds posted at The Oblivious Investor, saying, "How would you invest a portfolio if you were expecting to need to withdraw from it for potentially 50 years or more?"

Financial experts believe this is a sign where companies' profits are getting better, revenues are growing & the American economy is recovering."
