In September 2017, I received slightly over $100K as a result of the commuted value of my pension plan. I decided to invest 100% of this money into dividend growth stocks.

I admit that my own account has shown stronger numbers a few months ago. But still, I really don't understand the wind of panic.

It's even better when you are a dividend growth investor; you get paid to wait! Let's take a look at what November had in store for me.
