My moniker is From Growth To Value. That has several implications. One of them is that I cover the whole spectrum: from growth stocks to value stocks. But it also means that I pick growth stocks that I think will become value stocks by holding them for very long periods.
Over the last year, I have been focusing more on growth stocks, for example, in my ongoing series Potential Multibaggers and Chinese Stocks To Buy Now.

Those dividends then generate more cash for even more dividend stock purchases, etc. DGI uses the power of compounding.
Some of my readers that love growth stocks might think dividend payers are boring and have low returns. And it is true that dividend stocks are often more mature and less volatile. But the combination of a growing dividend, a growing stock price, and holding your stocks for long periods can have great results. You can see that from this illustration:
