Are you all ready? Another installment of our monthly round-up of dividend income monthly reports from many of our fellow dividend investing, FIRE pursuing bloggers. We love reading and trying to summarize as many journeys as possible each month because it is awesome to see the progress of so many other bloggers AND the results serve as great motivation for the community. The progress is infectious! July was a great month, the heat of summer is still high and the dividends continued to roll in. Now, lets dive in, and check out our June dividend income summary from YOU the bloggers!
Another month down and another month closer, they say. Closer to financial freedom! This pursuit of financial freedom and/or financial independence has been such a ride, I cannot wait for what’s to come. The fireworks have come and gone and now we are hitting into the peak summer heat here in Ohio and it will start to cool down towards the end of the month, as Fall begins to enter our territory. Hopefully that means that just the temperature outside cooling and that my portfolio’s dividend income is heating up! Let’s dive into my dividend income results from the month of August!
6 months in. Wow, the year is officially half over. However, is there another way to look at it? What about – we have half of the year left to make an impact? I like the sound of that better. I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend and that everyone has enjoyed their time with friends, family and, well, updating their portfolios! I am excited to share my June dividend income results, as it happened to be – my best month, ever.
Summer is here BABY! Memorial weekend just came to a close and man, the sun is shining fricken bright! Cavs are in the finals and road-tripping is real. On top of that – the Cleveland Indians are starting to roll wins and Encarnacion is using his bat finally! Enough of sports and summer weather – dividends have fully come in for May, so let’s check out the dividend income summary!
Put it on the board! Yes, another month is down and how exciting are these times for us dividend investors? Tax discussions, price swings within the stock market and a plethora of dividend increases to boot. One thing that i wished that cooperated better was the weather here in Ohio – it has swung wildly from mid-40’s to mid 80’s on a few occasions. All is okay, as the Cavs are cruising in the 2nd round and the Tribe are playing okay! Without further-ado here is April’s dividend income summary!
Closing out the April month on a high note! I have deployed more capital into a dividend aristocrat, as the stock price was falling down, a dividend increase was coming up and the timing was too tempting for me to sit on the sidelines. This marks the 5th individual stock purchase this year and the second in April alone. Feels great being in the driver’s seat, in my own lane on the highway to financial freedom! Come check out the purchase of W. W. Grainger, Inc. (GWW)!
Spring time is in the air and Easter has now been celebrated. Busy season is over, the snow is melted and the NBA playoffs have started. Baseball season is underway and the Cleveland Browns still have no idea what’s going on. I set my goals earlier on and it’s time to check back in after a rough few months to see how I am doing. Time to check in after 90 days of the pursuit of 2017’s goals, which is hopefully propelling and pushing 2018 soon-to-be goals to new levels. Continue reading
