Altria dividend increase

Altria stock announced an 8% dividend increase this past week. This is how we achieve FI when eventually we hit that crossover point.

As a DGI person these are these dividend increases are what we look for. This increase will be paid in Oct.

Altria regular returns money to its shareholders as this is the 50th increase in 47 years.

As I own 74.9 shares this will add 13.47 dollars a year to what I already own.

Just shy of 2 hours of minimum wage for doing nothing.

Have to love that.

God bless and have a great weekend

Have a plan

I started investing in 2001. Invested casually throughout the years. I had the goal of getting stocks and hopeing they would do good. I started out knowing nothing and I still have most of that knowledge left. When we have a plan a downturn like 2008 and 2009 won’t deter us.

Even though I was down at that time I saw the big picture and really started pumping money in the stock market.

Friends would tell me to sell and move on but that wasn’t part of that long term plan and I’m a whole lot better off because I stuck to that long term mindset.

What I am trying to build is investments that will wether a long 2-3 year down turn I am not there yet but hopefully someday I will

Godbless you in your journey
