Unfortunately my writing has taken a hit over the past few weeks but that doesn't mean I haven't been active with investing. Late in May I initiated a position in Ross Stores (Full Analysis Here) but after the share price dropped shortly after my purchase I felt that I needed to average down my cost basis. So to get June started off right I bought some more shares of ROST. I also made another purchase during the week and I'll get the post written up about it soon. Eventually my schedule will normalize and I can get into a groove with writing; hopefully, this week will be the start of that.
Also, be sure to sign up to receive posts via email and to follow me on Twitter@JC_PIP so you don't miss anything. I also started a Facebook page to give people another option for keeping up to date on posts and happenings with the blog.
Once again I'd like to say thanks to each and every one of you that read, commented, and shared posts from here this past week. I think this dividend growth investing and financial independence community is amazing and the openness from everyone is awesome. Thanks again!

Sometimes when I get some free time I like to check out TED talks because there's a wealth of knowledge and always very interesting topics. Here's an interesting speech regarding wealth inequality and our perceptions of it.
I hope you all have a great rest of the weekend.
