Right Where We Left Off | Weekly Roundup - January 13, 2018

Curated list of articles on dividend growth investing, financial independence, freedom and passive income

Just like that the 2nd week of the year is over and done with.  Overall it was a pretty good week for myself and the markets picked up right where they left 2017 off with another week surging higher.  The S&P 500 has already added 4.2% already in 2018 which is absolutely amazing.  We're also now approaching the 2nd longest consecutive days streak without a 5% pullback in the S&P 500 which kind of boggles the mind.  At some point we'll get that elusive pull back, but a lot of money has been lost making the call for it.

The best part about last week was that the way things worked out my wife and daughter were able to make a quick weekend trip to San Antonio so we could all see each other.  It was a short visit, but well worth it and enough to recharge my batteries a bit.  Of course our daughter is just active as can be and my wife and I had to take turns eating our meals while one of us chased our daughter around because she just couldn't sit still.  

What's funny is just how much our daughter loves water and San Antonio is perfect for that with the Riverwalk and all of the fountains that are over in Hemisfair Park.  She absolutely loves it!  And there's just non-stop chatter about "wa-wa" and running around to check out the other fountains.  It's so great to see her completely light up when she's excited about something.

Once again if you have any feedback regarding the new look of the blog please let me know.

  1. Lots of good stuff to check out! Thanks for the roundup!

  2. Thanks for the summary JC. I have read a number of the articles and really liked the one from Young Dividend. I'm hoping the corporate tax cut flows through to us dividend growth investors as higher increases this year. Tom

  3. Love the new look JC! And it is always nice when your family can travel with you and you can spend some time exploring a new place together. Thanks for including Lanny's article and putting this list together.
