With the TSX reaching a two-year high this week, the markets don’t seem to be slowing down.  While it may not be a great time to buy right now, at least I’m not thinking of selling.  Not with a dividend growth investing strategy.  I’m hoping the gradually improving economic landscape will allow companies to grow their dividends again soon (like the Canadian banks).

Emera (EMA.TO) recently raised their dividend by 15%, and the stock has surged upwards of 20 percent.  Growth AND income, sounds really good to me.

Now on to the links, here are some interesting articles from this week in personal finance:
