Pursuing Early Financial Independence through Dividend Growth Investing and other Passive Income.
The best posts to read and write. Looks like you are about even from October '15. Your forward 12 month dividend total is becoming quite impressive. I like those images too representing each company mentioned.
Keith, I'm pretty happy to see that I'm about on par with October considering all of the changes and utter lack of investing. One big issue that I've overcome pretty well primarily through dividend growth is the loss of KMI's hefty dividend. Through October 2015 I had received over $300 in dividends, but I've made up a good chunk of that although I should still come in lower for 2016 than 2015. Overall though I'm pretty happy. The $6k forward dividends mark keeps eluding me. I've been close or just slightly above over the last 1.5 years but something keeps bringing me back down. Whether the aforementioned KMI cut and closing that position, the closing my HCP position because I didn't want any part of the QCP spinoff and the few other sales that I've done. But the power of dividend growth keeps shining through via most companies giving me raises and making up for those losses of income.All the best.
I dig your presentation skills. Wow, 5 raises in 1 month, try that at your day job. LOL :) That's why dividend investing is still my all time favorite. Take my picks, then wait for the dividend rolling around.
Good work PiP. I tend to agree exactly with Vivianne (comment above). Passive Income is the way to go!
Awesome job. Not every month will be positive but we sure can hope. Being diversified is a must when doing this. You will eventually get over 6000 in dividends hang in there and don't lose sight of the big picture.
Nice presentation. And the comments answered my remaining questions.
