What a journey it has been so far. Last week, after a sudden drop in earnings, Target’s price fell and I swooped up an additional 30 shares of the major retailer. Now, I own 80 freaking shares and couldn’t be happier. But the good great news didn’t stop there. No, that investment also put me over a milestone that I have been eyeing for a few months now. This last purchased pushed my forward dividend income over the $3,000 mark and you know what, there is no turning back now. How did I get to this point? Let’s take a look!
I can’t write this without smiling. 2016 is going to be an amazing, life-changing year for me and I cannot wait until the ball drops on New Year’s Eve to make it official. I’ll be marrying the love of my life at the end of May, so I don’t think there is a bad thing that can happen to me. Well, now I left myself with an impossible task. How on earth to I segue from that to discussing my 2015 investing goals? Nothing I do this year will mean more to mean than that. So I guess I will technically knock out one goal at the end of May? Anyway…. now I’ll get down to business. This article will discuss my 2016 goals!
It turns out that Lanny was not the only one with an itch to buy. I have been watching the market closely over the last few weeks calculating an entry point for one of the stocks on my watch list, WalMart, when another great dividend stock appeared out of nowhere. Just like Lanny, I couldn’t resist purchasing one of the darlings of the dividend growth investing community. This week, I also invested in Kinder Morgan (KMI).
