So far this month I’ve spent ZERO new dollars on dividend stocks, yet I have added $12 bucks in yearly dividend income!  It’s almost like cheating.

The first half of the year is gone… crazy how quickly time moves these days.  Being a dividend growth investor that tracks everything really does put a daily timestamp on life. It really makes you to see time flying by (or maybe I’m just getting older). Anyway, this month’s dividend […] The article June Dividend Income and Net Worth Report – 2018 appeared first on The Dividend Pig ...

I hope everyone had a nice mid week (4th of July or Canada Day) holiday!  Mine was fantastic.  We had some great family time – ate hamburgers, hot dogs and drank beer.  Really, what else do you need?

Here are the dividend stocks I’ve purchased so far this June. While the totals are a fraction of my buys in February, March, April and May of this year, I’m very happy with the average yield.  I’ve pretty much exhausted all the extra cash I had in my 401k account. […] ...
