Hello everyone! Today, I went on a run outside and had a nice deep thought about what to do with an unlocked source of cash flow. No, no this isn’t coming from my INCREASE in housing expenses or a pay raise. This actually goes back to relate to paying off my auto loan earlier, rather than later. This won’t be moving mountains, by any means, however this unlocks a new cash flow for me and now the debate is what to use the additional capital that will be available on a monthly basis going forward!
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)!
Taxes. Oh taxes how I loathe you. Last year in 2016 for 2015’s tax year, you got the best of me and received a nice check at the last day possible. After that moment in Mid-April of 2016, I did not want to go down that path again. I therefore, did y researched, spent time soul-searching for days, weeks and months to come to a plan. Finally, I will say this – I believe this year I kicked Uncle Sam’s ass, and I will show you how!
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
Quarter 1 of 2017 is now officially int he books! Here we go, the music starts, the sun is brighter and I am feeling better/more rested each day. What else does this mean for, more specifically, US dividend income investors? The biggest month worth of paydays has finished and I can only hope the community feels the same. Did we set records? Did we reach expectations or did we learn something that we can create growth from? Time will tell when we are able to review all of the articles being released, but I am very pleased with how March ended from a dividend income stand point. Let’s dive into the results!
Wow, wow. So it’s been over two months and I have definitely found a stock that fit the metrics of an undervalued dividend stock investment. It took some thorough research and thinking about the companies that many people take part in every single day or have made them a part of their lives. With healthcare and prescriptions, this led me to this stock and this company shows high signs of undervaluation. Come check out what company I purchased stock into and why!
The title alone to the article makes me mad! It has been over 2 straight months of no additional stock or investment purchase and it is very puzzling but easy to understand why at the same time. Each stock I analyze either has a just a tad high price to earnings ratio, or the debt I am considering to pay down just doesn’t make as much sense based on the pure numbers. What’s a guy to do? See why I am sitting on Idle Cash and it’s building under the cushion of my couch at this moment! Plus – see potential ideas/moves for the idle cash I have.
