Building a dividend growth portfolio through Robinhood is easy. With no commission trading, you don’t feel inclined to invest large sums at once and you can start with a small balance. I like to reinvest my dividend income into other dividend paying stocks. This maximizes my ability to generate compound interest.

I have some concentration in Target Corporation that I will plan on selling down. I averaged down during the whole Amazon is going to take over the world crisis, but I am now sitting on a decent 30% gain.
Dividend Growth Portfolio Conclusion – February 2018
Going forward, I will continue to allocate additional income that I receive from other forms of online income to my dividend growth portfolio. One thing that you wills see is that some of these stocks are not your typical dividend growth stock such as dividend achievers or dividend aristocrats.
I consider myself a bit of a value investor and my criteria is that the stock must pay a dividend. In addition, I have about 7% of my portfolio in cash. This will give me flexibility to buy additional shares as needed.

Dividend Portfolio Sells:
- Target Corp (TGT) – Sitting on a good gain and reducing exposure. Will still hold this Dividend Aristocrat
- COTY, Inc. (COTY) – Like Target, this one has been a wild ride. I am sitting on a 25% gain and looking to reduce my exposure just a bit. I like this longer-term.
- Boeing Corp (BA) – This stock has been a high flyer (and so has the dividend). No pun intended. I’m sitting on a 110% gain on this investment so I sold a couple of shares.
Dividend Portfolio Buys:
- Realty Income (O) – Yes, rates are going higher. Yes, this stock could underperform going forward. But, what if it doesn’t? What if rates stay flat? The huge selloff in REITs has peaked my interest to scale into long-term positions. I like being a contrarian.
Using Robinhood, I can grab scale into a stock that is receiving extreme downward pressure. I like this because I don’t feel devastated if the stock continues a downward decline. I can continue to buy more. This works extremely well and is very advantageous for the retail investor. I used my evidence-based research to make portfolio buys and sells.
