Getting Back into Dividend Growth Value Investing!

It has been a few months since I stopped screening for, and purchasing monthly lots of undervalued dividend growth stocks.  Well I am jumping back in next month and I am extremely excited to get this part of my financial world started up again. Why I Stopped Dividend Growth Value Investing? Last year, I started to sell naked puts to generate revenue.  The idea was simple enough, I would sell puts on companies that I would not mind owning.  If the put did not get assigned to me, I would keep the cash and if the  put was likely to (or did [...]

and Just Like That the Specific Rental Property is Dead

My last post was about a possible rental property I was very excited about possibly purchasing.  It was on the east end of Long Island, and could be used in the future as a possible vacation spot for those people involved in the deal.  However, as the title of the post indicates, the deal is all but dead.  I am pretty annoyed about it, but it is what it is.

Taking a Second Look at a Rental Property

I honestly thought I would have owned a second (or even a third) rental property by now, but it just hasn't happened.  I looked at a property with a buddy way back in 2014, but if I remember correctly it ended up being way too big of a project for my firt investment property, and I didn't even go for a second look.  Again, my memory may be a bit off but I think the buddy I took a look at it with, did go back a few times but he couldn't come to terms with the price.  As I write this post, I am [...]
