Yes it is that time of month where we report on what our stocks paid us and if we fell short or exceeded what we wanted to do. Now if you can remember Dec was a record month by a mile because of some special dividends and lots of added capital to my account. Well i added a little capital but was it enough to become my biggest month? Will i weep or will i cry?
Today the board of directors of KO decided to send me money. whnever a company does that I love it as it increases my income. this is exactly the kind of raise we want while it is smalller than past raises it is still an inflation beater.
One month down and we are done with January. Yep that was a fast month seems like yesterday we were just waking up to the year. Where does time go? After my successful 2016 we are excited to see how successful 2017 will be. It is time now to see what the damage is and to see wether i weep or cry.
Gotta love it when a company decides to send money your way. If you dont send that money my way lol. Anyways this is my first announced of the year but will be my third I get unless i get surprised later on and this was a surprise and i love surprises.
Yesterday dipped in and got the first buy of the year for me. We had to get this year going on the right track if we were to be successful.
Here it is the second and final net worth track of 2016 I will have 4 in 2017 as i do them quarterly. some accounts go up and some go down as long as at the end of the year my final tally is positive that is all that really matters. Before i started blogging i had never tracked my net worth just kept track of my main account through sharebuilder but now i cant wait each quarter to see where i am at.
Well all the dividends have been tabulated it is time to see if it is time to cry or put a great big smile on my face. But to begin with to keep you in suspense a little i have never had a 200.00 month and now will we end 2016 ending that drought or will it continue?
After not having invested in almost 3 years this year i got after again as i paid off my credit card and sold some stocks and added some of mine to the mix to buy some. Continue reading “DEC Dividends”

Yes once again I made some buys. it was the first of the month so i figured i might as well get them in early. decided to add 2 again so probably wont be adding again unless a firesale goes on. Buying at least once a month eve n though it is a small amount has helped grow my portfolio the last 9 months. so its something i want to continually to do often. Continue reading “Tuesdays Buys”
Great news another dividend increase. You have to love these as this is how you really turbo charge your portfolio. Even though my holdings in O is small i plan on adding in the future just whenever nobody knows. Since i have 13.3571 this will raise my dividend to .80 cents a year of course compounding will keep bringing this up. Slowly but surely.
Other dividend raises announced this year

Yup did it again bought 2 more stocks using the sharebuilderplan through sharebuilder. On Tuesday the 14th of March, 1 day before the raise in interest rates from the feds. i bought. One of the goals i have for this year is to bring up my investments while adding new ones also so its a balance that i have to take since i dont have much.
Yes that is recent and buys. On tuesday the i took the plunge and bought 2 existing stocks adding to what i already had. want to balance adding to what i have and new stocks so will take some work but doing a good job so far this year i think.
