      It happened! January 2019 was the first time my monthly dividends broke the $1000 mark. My portfolio brought in $1143.51. This income was reinvested into my portfolio buying up 30 new shares of the listed companies. In January I also purchased, with new c...


     2019 is upon us and so is my biggest dividend month to date. I finally broke the thousand dollars in dividend payment and really saw my new account going to work. I feel great about the timing of the new account investments as I feel like I was able to put my mone...

Big dividend month to end a big dividend year. My totals for December 2018 were $884.25. Have yet to break $1000 but I am expecting to next month with my new retirement account in full swing. With my three accounts almost fully committed to dividend investing, I am exc...
