Markets are at record highs.  Canada is lagging big time.  100 years on the DOW is compounding at 5% and dividends are 3 of those 5 points.  You can focus on dividends but you might want to focus on dividend growers.  Acquirers may be able to grow dividends by acquisitions.  Tax cuts in the US are a bullish argument.  They are driving things but not the same for all companies.  CSX-N and retail have rebounded substantially.  There are pockets of decent value but the market is not cheap.

Seems like a valid option… what company could be growing dividends by acquisitions?
