Perhaps my favorite stocked pond to go fishing in is the investing world's dividend-growing, low payout ratio niche.
Historically, this group of companies tends to outperform the broader market average and even adds a reasonable layer of stability.
My all-time favorite stocks to find, though, are those that have the x-factor. (lame, but literal nickname)
Anytime I can find a business that can create an x like this through its declining share count and rising dividends paid figures -- it catches my attention.
Curious to see if anyone else has a weird thing like this that they look for in stocks.
Or maybe even similar x-factor stocks similar to these that you like.

Both for me, i tend to invest in a few different buckets for different reasons.
