    My long-term strategy is to focus my attention on quality companies that will deliver a growing stream of dividends over the foreseeable future. This stream of dividends will enable me to retire by providing me with an inflation-adjusted stream of income that maintains its purchasing power. In order to achieve that, these companies should be able to generate higher earnings per share over that period to invest in growing their operation and generate excess cash flows for distributions to investors. High-Yield dividend stocks don't match my criteria.
