      Thanks! I like Disney too. Not super thrilled about all these companies starting competing services from a consumer standpoint. I liked it when you just had to subscribe to Netflix and that was it. From an investing standpoint I think it will work out great for Disney.

  3. Two I –

    Killing it over there, insane growth and big checks. Keep it up!

      Thanks! Growth is going nicely. The checks help as well. Been slow on the updates lately. A bunch of big life events coming up. (All good ones!) I’ll blog about it soon.

    Wow… a triple digit year over year gain is something to be proud of. GE has been a heavy hitter for you I see. I’m still holding my GE stock and maybe even adding more. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Wow that is outstanding growth! Over 100%! And being able to max out the Roth already takes a little pressure off for the rest of the year. Has more time to build too since you maxed it out so early. Keep up the good work!

    • scott says:

      Thanks, Dividend Daze! Yep, it feels good to max that out. I also just recently started contributing to my work’s 401k. Will be blogging about that soon.

    Very nice YoY increase! Like you, I maxed my Roth contribution for 2018 already. Takes the pressure off. I’m not sure why I haven’t purchased some Disney yet. I feel like the company is still trading a a decent valuation. Maybe one day.

  7. Wow, over half of the total from GE! Considering their dividend cut that’s quite the position. I’m hoping they turn it around and reward the patient shareholders. What really caught my eye in your report, though, is that your are nearly at the $10K mark for forward dividend income. Excellent news, Scott! No options income though. Are you taking a break in that area?

    Scott, thank you ever so for you post.Much thanks again.

    I don’t know if this is the right board to contact you but I wanted to congratulate you on the Dividend stock portfolio tracker. It does an excellent job of my portfolio management.
    My only hiccup is the ‘DivPayoutCal” page. I receive #NA in column C ‘Annual Dividends’, and column E ‘Payout Dividend’. The formulas seem to be in place but I am no Google sheet expert. Is there and input on a previous page I am omitting? Again thanks for the help.

  11. Great work!

    I love watching your monthly income climb.

    […] Two Investing – $350.94 – WHOA.  124% increase year over year?  You are giving HHWG a run for her money, noted above.  I see Disney (DIS) and General Electric (GE) sending massive checks your way.   Hope Disney (DIS) has some great dividend news this year.  Congrats! […]
