March Dividend Growth Portfolio Update

By | 2018-04-05T16:05:46+00:00 April 5th, 2018|Dividend Investment Portfolio|4 Comments

At the current time this is probably my least favorite post to prepare of the three that I do monthly.  While I definitely like preparing this post it is far behind screening for my next purchase, and way further behind preparing my net worth post every month.  I think the reason is that this particular account, while it is my favorite account, is tiny in comparison to my net worth.  I am hoping in the next few years that the account will be so large and the income so significant that this moves up in priority. My Undervalued Dividend Growth Stock Purchase [...]

Net Worth April 2017 Update

By | 2018-03-31T15:43:39+00:00 March 31st, 2018|Personal Situation|3 Comments

Every month for the past 6 or 7 years I have shared how my net worth has changed month over month and year to date.  I honestly believe that calculating your net worth is a valuable exercise for any household.  Calculating your net worth provides a near immediate (30 day) feedback as to how your decisions have affected the bottom line. Thoughts prior to calculating net worth: I am almost positive that this month is going to be rough.  This likely to be the first time in 3 years that I have two negative months in a row!

First, you need to know how to maneuver through the foreign exchange market (forex). This involves some fairly sophisticated trading knowledge. You’ll have to understand the [...]

Checking Back in with Marijuana Stocks

There always seems to be a 'shiny new object' for retail investors to obsess over.  Most recently, that shiny object has been crytpocurrencies, before that was investing in anything that was IOT, before that was 3D Printing, before that we had marijuana stocks and before that I think it was anything with FOREX in the name.  I am sure there were other investing fads, but that is all I could come up with in the past few years. I originally looked at publicly traded marijuana stocks in January of 2014 and came to a conclusion that I had absolutely no chance at [...]
