Latest stock purchases — AT&T and Kroger

My latest two purchases are additional shares of two companies that I already own. On 5/30/2017, I purchased 200 shares of AT&T. While this slightly increases my cost basis, I feel that this is still a great entry point. AT&T is transitioning from being a slow growth telecom company functioning...

Adding to Two Positions I Already Own — AMGN and NSRGY

I’ve been busy with work, vacation, and the holiday season, which has kept me from writing a couple of posts. The great thing, though, is that even though I’ve been busy, my dividend income has kept rolling in. December has always been a great month for dividend income, and I’m...

March through July 2016 Income Updates

Man, I’m behind! I’m finally getting settled in my new job in Minnesota and decided to finally get going on the blog posts. Believe it or not, I do have a few posts in draft status just awaiting the finishing touches. Updates for the dividend portfolio spreadsheet will be coming...

January 2016 Income

2016 was a rough start for stocks! Seems like nearly all of my stocks are lower. For dividend investors, though, the situation is not too bad. Lower stock prices just means that we can buy more shares and that our dividend reinvestments have more oomph. This January I received $144.28,...

Vanguard Dividend Appreciation ETF (VIG) vs Individual Stocks

When I started invested I stayed diversified by investing in ETFs. Since I began without much money, commission-free ETFs, like Schwab’s Dividend Equity ETF were very appealing. I’ve always liked the concept of investing in dividend growth companies and an ETF was a good exposure to that sector, allowing me...

Purchase of GE with money from MCD

If you’ve been following my latest posts, I did go ahead and sell MCD. As a dividend growth investor, stagnant stocks aren’t usually what would cause me to sell. In fact, I might even buy more or at least hold, allowing the reinvested dividends to be even more effective. It...

January 2015 Income

Thanks to a special dividend from Ventas of $4.79 that I was not expecting, I was able to just break $100. January is my lowest dividend collecting month as BAX, CSCO, GE, and O only provide the meaningful contributions. DIS also pays this month but only contributed $2.62 since it...

Getting Started in Real Estate

It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to invest in any stocks. This mostly has been due to the fact that I’ve had a lot of expenses related to my radiology education: books, conferences, travel/hotels, etc. Fortunately, I will be getting reimbursed for most of these expenses and then will...
