Net Worth Update - May 2021

Net Worth Update - May 2021 While cash flow is more important when it comes to financial independence , it's still good to look at the balance sheet too, which is why I provide these net worth updates.  Since more and more of my net worth is tied to the markets, there's a larger correlation between my net worth and the markets, but in the long run as I continue to save and invest the net worth trend should be higher even though short term fluctuations can vary wildly.  As a dividend growth investor I'm not overly concerned with the short-term gyrations as long as the dividend stream remains in tact, but the markets' effect is noticeable. During May the S&P 500 climbed higher by 0.6%.  With the majority of our net worth tied to the markets our net worth climbed as well but didn't quite keep pace with the S&P 500.  I'm not concerned one bit though about that. During May my net worth increased $2,382.75.
