Hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and were able to take a moment to enjoy everything that we have in our lives. Loves ones, friends, family, dividend stock portfolios, you name it – we need to be thankful. Now that November is finished and my body is heavy from eating, it’s time to digest the November Dividend Income results! Let’s check it out!
Who else is ready for the final push of the year on the dividend stock investing front? Even though time is going by fast, we still need to take time and analyze how performance has been on the dividend income front. Without analyzing the pure numbers, how can one improve? The leaves are falling fast, weather is dropping, the heat is on in the house and my dividend stock portfolio is warming up right along with it. If only I can be financial independent with my dividend income right about now, would be icing on the cake. Let’s check out my October 2017 dividend income total!
The dividend growth community and personal finance online communities are unlike any other community out there. We support each other, share our advice, help each other through difficult decisions with major implications, and encourage each other to be the best we can be and improve our lives each and every day. Each month, the two of us summarize and aggregate as many stories and dividend income stories as we can into a monthly summary to show the progress that each of us are making. Each story is unique and we are all at different stops along our journey towards financial freedom, and that’s what we love best. Now it is time to check out our September dividend income summary from YOU the bloggers.
There is nothing like having a discussion about stocks and having one that the two of us hang up our phone, fire up our laptops, and begin intensely researching. Today, we both discussed a consumer staple stock with a brand portfolio that is matched by few. In our quest for finding undervalued dividend growth stocks, we wanted to take a deeper look at Newell Brands, Inc. (NWL) today and run the company through the Dividend Diplomats’ stock screener.
Three years and three or so months ago, my portfolio crossed the first six digit mark in it’s existence. Back in June of 2014, the dividend investment portfolio crossed $100,000 in market value. Now I never posted about the portfolio crossing $200,000, but something about $300,000 had a nice ring to it. It took me over 5 years to get to $100,000 and only 3.25 short years to triple that amount. I hope we all can take a pause to think about that for a second, as my article will be focused on HOW I was able to garner a $300,000 portfolio and how YOU can too. Check out how I was able to cross and crush through the $300,000 dividend stock portfolio mark!
Here we are folks. The third quarter has come to a close, the weather has fluctuated from very cold, back to very hot in the span of a week. Leaves have fallen off of the tree, but I still see people laying out here in Northeast Ohio. Time is moving fast and we must keep up with adding value and productivity to our lives. September marks a very exciting quarter end for us dividend investors and I’m excited to share the results!
Nothing Matters More than your Savings rate. Now that I’ve been in deep on the journey to financial freedom, one learns quite a bit. From investing, making every dollar and hour count, to maximizing your investments to the highest level with tax efficient accounts. Additionally, I’ve learned the utmost importance of having an extremely high savings rate. One cannot do any of the items above if you spend all of your money!
