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. ...

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.

I’ve been working hard at growing dividend income the last couple of months.  While I’m not exactly thrilled with the prices i’m paying at the moment (most stocks are very overvalued) I’m picking the best deals I can find. As I mentioned here, I’m making some larger, more frequent purchases thanks to my 401k getting moved to an account I’m able to control.  Its an exciting time! So here is a list ...

With the month half over, it is time to start doing some work and start buying income from the best dividend values that I could find.  The trouble is, its not easy when pretty much everything is super expensive.  Below are the best dividend deals I jumped on this month (one of them being a bit of a gamble).
