August’s dividend income number is fantastic, but net worth dipped a bit as the bill on our final home improvement project came due.  As I’m sitting here writing this post on an airplane, I’m afforded some extra time to write about this dividend income and net worth report.  I’m going to edit the format of this post up a bit as there are some pressing health things that are weighing ...

Another month halfway over and there is no melting this dividend snowball… even in the Georgia heat. I’m continuing to invest the money in my 401k and trading account into the best dividend growth stocks I can find. Hopefully, we’ll see these stocks pay a growing dividend for years and years! As it often seems, many of the dividend growth stocks I would like buy are very expensive.  Though, I’ve still ...

July’s dividend income has exploded again with the income being generated from my 401k.  Since I’ve been able to invest my 401k myself, I have added almost $3,300 in yearly forward dividend income!  Not a bad few months for this dividend investor.  Net worth on the other hand took it on the chin as Zillow reassessed my property values. July Dividend Income July has been a heck of a month in terms ...

It’s as simple as it sounds… to be a dividend growth investor, you have to invest money into dividend growth stocks (whether it be individual stocks, ETFs or mutual funds). While this is easy to say, it’s much harder to do. I’ve struggled, constantly, over the last few years trying to shrug off my second guessing nature that relentlessly tells me I’m paying too much for the dividend stocks I’m buying. ...

WOW!  I do love these big payment months.  My monthly dividend income is getting pretty respectable and net worth is beginning to climb back up. Monthly Dividend Income I’m so excited about the progress I’m making with my dividend income.  It’s my delight to report this month’s record breaking totals. Let’s get to it. This month I received $725.35 in dividend income.  On average, I was paid $17.69 from a whopping 41 companies (or 40 companies and 1 fund). ...

I can’t believe we are almost done with the month and i’m just now posting my June purchases. I’m normally much more on the ball. Anyway, even though I haven’t been “present”, I have been putting some money to work. It’s not been the gigantic sums of the last few months, but it all adds up! You can click on the ticker link in the table below to get current dividend ...

May was an incredible month for my personal dividend income and a kick in the face for net worth.  The new money that I’ve invested in dividend growth stocks the last few months is really starting to make an impact. Personal Dividend Income I mentioned in my last report that slow months can be difficult to keep motivated. Graphing and charting were extremely important to keep focused.  Well, that wasn’t necessary this month… this month’s personal dividend ...

When I first discovered dividend investing a few years ago, I quickly realized this was the investing style for me.  I also realized that dividend investing is not a quick process… at all.  It takes years, decades even, of investing in high quality companies before you see substantial returns in the form of dividend income.  While I am ecstatic with the progress I’m making, this dividend income report is not all that ...

Just two days into the month and I’ve already added a couple hundred dollars of income to my dividend portfolio! (SWEET!)  The last few months have been huge accumulations months for me. You can read more about how that happened here. In other news.  I’ve starting to raise my limit order prices for several dividend growth stocks on my limit order list.  My limit prices have gotten so far out of whack ...

The Internet is awash with opportunities for massive savings, discounts, and wealth maximization. It is entirely possible to scour the literature in search of profitable opportunities. This is true on loans, credit cards, opening new bank accounts, transferring/receiving money internationally and so forth. Promotions are typically limited-time offers available to clients who spot them at the right time, at the right place. The average consumer pays so much more than is ...
