I’ve teased over the last month that we crossed a MAJOR investing mile. I’m finally excited to share the news with everyone. Our family’s portfolio is now projected to earn over $10,000 in dividend income!
October was a busy month, no doubt and we eventually saw snowflakes on the first morning of November, yikes. Even though it is getting cold in Cleveland, the Dividend Stock Portfolio always is heating up baby! Without further-ado, time to jump into my October Dividend Income results!
Markets up, markets down. That seems to be the theme of 2019. Oil prices have been the latest item to experience wild swings. Further, interest rates are starting to slowly climb up once again, so hopefully many of you were able to take advantage and refinance your mortgage (I know Bert did – article to come on the topic). Each swing, each change in the market, presents a new wave of opportunities for long-term investors like ourselves. That’s why it is important to have a stock screener (Read our Dividend Stock Screener), establish a watch list, and most importantly, SHARE YOUR IDEAS WITH THE COMMUNITY.
What’s crazy is how many stock purchases the two of us have made over the years that stemmed from an article we read on one of your websites. We cherish this community. Which is why we aggregate as many dividend income summary articles from around the community. Here is the August 2019 version of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series. It is time to get motivated!
I recently had a fun comment the other day. It just so happened to be on one of my most recent posts that came out on September 7th for my dividend stock purchases in August. A discussion between Dividend Gremlin and I struck a new fun game to play in my mind, relating to living costs and reaching financial freedom.
The market continues to swing, as we kick off the second half of 2019. Declining interest rates stole the show during the month, as the Fed cut interest rates in July (as expected). The interest rates have led to a refinancing boom, that saw one of us refinance our mortgages (article to come). Seeing the market swing on a daily basis is a great reminder for why we are long-term dividend growth investors. With a long-term investing horizon, we are able to relax during short-term turbulence and focus on the end prize…financial freedom. It is part of this crazy journey that we, as a community, have embarked on! Which is why each month, we aggregate as many dividend income summary articles from around the community. Here is the July 2019 version of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series!
10 years of investing. That is 10 years of Frugal Living and saving as much as possible. In addition, that means 10 years of managing the portfolio & monthly budget. 25,000+ hours worked in your “career”. What do all these items have in common? Time. Time can wear you down or time can build you up. You may feel tired from putting in all of the blood, sweat and tears on your journey. I am here to show you what you may need to STAND back up, to stay HUNGRY and to keep GOING on your journey.
My mailbox and online advertising banners always contain New Bank Account Promotions. With promises of hundreds of dollars for each new account, it is easy to see why many people use this as a hack to earn extra cash. I have been reluctant to participate over the years. But recently, two offers came across my plate that I couldn’t pass up. Here is how I earned $1,000 with new bank account promotions over the last month.
