This was my dividend income for the month of September.
$37.79.. Slightly lower than last months income, but nevertheless the trend is upwards. My portfolio officially returned over $100 in capital since I first started in April! $100 I never had to work for. Absolutely incredible in my eyes. Most people would think it’s chump change, but I think otherwise.
This journey is a culmination of every trial and error that I have had in the markets. I started investing in 2013. I knew what was the right way of investing from the get go, but I was thrown off by the talking heads. Buy & Hold great companies. I had MMM & MSFT in 2013. The low capital and even lower dividend income made me want to seek higher returns elsewhere. I dabbled with pink sheets and penny stocks and to no avail I failed. Those were small losses (1-2K). 2014 I started investing in WWE (the media company I mentioned in the ABOUT ME section) and put 50% of my paycheck into it every 2 weeks. The investment grew to $30,000 by 2015. The dividends were $300 a QUARTER. I knew I had something special, but again I lost track. I sold for a decent gain and started day trading. I won big, lost bigger. By end of 2015 I was completely wiped out. Account got blown up. My parents were struggling financially as well. I gave up most of my savings and was left with my 401-K which I couldn’t even touch. In April 2016, I decided to start this web site after seeing many dividend growth blogs track their progress. From that point forward, I knew what I wanted. I was hooked on the concept of having my portfolio supplement and eventually replace my working (sweat) income. Here we are today.
The machine is complete. Now it’s a matter of buying during corrections.
Everything is in the DRIP; LTC gave me 1.4% of 1 share, WFC gave me 3.8% of 1 share, UL gave me 3.6% of 1 share, MSFT gave me 6.4% of 1 share, ED gave me 5.4% of 1 share, O gave me 2.8% of 1 share, PSEC gave me 2 free shares & 52.4% of 1 share & finally WWE gave me 14.7% of 1 share. Not bad at all. The snowball continues to roll, starting to get free shares, now my dividend portfolio is looking better than ever. Thanks for stopping by! Can’t wait for what October will bring!
