In my last post, Partying Like It’s 2007 (Part 1), I wrote about why today seems a little like the aging bull market of 2007 all over again.  And, the effects the 2007 – 2009 bear market had on us.  It had lasting effects on us personally, professionally and financially. Dreams of financial independence were shattered, […] The post Surviving The 2002 -2007 Bull Market Hangover (Part 2) appeared first on Dividends ...

With the financial markets hitting new high after new high, I can’t help but think about the end of the last bull market in 2007.  I was working a full time in a job that wasn’t really a good fit for me anymore.  Our dreams of financial independence seemed close.

I like to watch business news on television from time to time.  CNBC is my go to station.  I often hear the news anchors ask their guests if it is a good time to put money in the stock market.  It is especially interesting these days with many stock markets around the world at all […] The post Should You Invest in the Stock Market Now' appeared first on Dividends Diversify. ...

GENERAL ELECTRIC COMPANY […] The post The Lights Are on But No One is Home appeared first on Dividends ...

I have “gone wrong” many times and in many areas of my life, but let’s keep this article focused on my dealings as a shareholder of General Electric (GE).  I will spare you the other stuff and save it for my psychiatrist.  What’s important in life is not if we make mistakes, but how we deal […] The post Where I Went Wrong….with General Electric (GE) appeared first on Dividends Diversify. ...

I started working full time in the summers at the ripe old age of 15.  Believe it or not, I felt pressure from one of my parents to get a summer job. I already mowed lawns and delivered papers, but I guess that wasn’t enough.  With the best intent, my hard working parent was just […] The post Why Your Investment Portfolio Is Like a Garden appeared first on Dividends Diversify. ...

Last week (Part 1), I posted that I recently sold Compass Minerals (CMP) for tax loss harvesting purposes.  Should I buy it back?  Let’s analyze the company from a dividend stock investment perspective. COMPANY BACKGROUND CMP produces salt, plant nutrients and magnesium chloride for distribution primarily in North America.  They make most of their money […] The post Please Pass the Salt (Part 2) appeared first on Dividends Diversify. ...

That’s right.  I have lost my compass, but I may get it back.  Do I mean I have lost my short or long term direction in life?  Well maybe, but that’s a topic for another day. Joking aside, what I mean is I have sold Compass Minerals (CMP) from my personal taxable account to establish […] The post I Have Lost My Compass (Part 1) appeared first on Dividends Diversify. ...
