One of the things I am most excited to write about in regards to a dividend investing strategy is actually receiving the dividends- It’s the best part! Since dividend investing does not involve day trading or huge portfolio value swings from growth stocks (the backbone of the strategy includes only investing in high quality, mature and stable companies after all), the real excitement comes from watching the dividends roll in.
- Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) – $13.72
Total dividends received for the month of August: $13.72
Obviously, the dividend income this month is small since I bit the bullet by initiating a position in JNJ in July 2015, my first ever stock purchase. However, I am confident that by adding fresh capital and reinvesting the dividends received, these monthly updates will continue to increase. Can’t wait!
Full disclosure: Long all aforementioned stocks.
Thanks for reading.
