It’s been over two months since I’ve posted here on DGI For The DIY, so if you’ve wondered or worried about where I’ve been, everything is A-OK.

The month of February is in the books, and it was an extremely volatile one for the stock market. It was also a busy month for me personally, as deadlines led to overtime at work and frequent snowstorms provided me with ample exercise opportunities in shoveling out the driveway.

The Super Bowl is now over, which means the month of January has come to a close. Being a life-long Minnesota Vikings fan, this also means the inevitable disappointment that comes at the end of another NFL season.

As I type this update, we sit just three weeks one week away from Christmas. My kids are getting more excited by the day, and my 3-year-old still hasn’t quite figured out why it isn’t already Christmas since the tree is up and Christmas songs are playing on the radio. However, the purpose of this post … Continue reading Giving Thanks For 42.8% Dividend Growth In November → ...

My apologies for the delayed update, it’s been a crazy month at both work and home, limiting my free time to do much writing of late. I also needed to get my Q3 portfolio update finished up before we got too far into Q4, and that was published on Seeking Alpha last Friday. With that … Continue reading September Update: Squirreling Away 10% Higher Dividends → ...

My favorite part of dividend growth investing is declaration day, the day when a new dividend rate is announced by one of the companies I own. People generally get one raise per year at work, but with a portfolio of 53 stocks, I average better than one income increase a week! I keep a log … Continue reading 5 Dividend Growth Predictions For October → ...
