Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – December Dividend Stock Purchases – 2021

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

They say a cheap trick to stay warm during the wintertime is moving around a lot…  Well, I think it works for dividend investing too!  I’ve been moving (investing) a good amount this month and I’m staying super toasty!  It’s been a much more active month then I anticipated, and DRIPs have been doing a great job of automating that activity.

I keep a running log of every dividend stock I purchase which can be viewed in the dividend growth stock purchases section.

So far, I’ve put a little over $7,500 to work with an average yield of 4.02%.  I’ve added almost $311 of yearly forward dividend income this month!  The $F, $KR, $ENB, $PFE, $SO and $NNN purchases were made via DRIP.

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.

All additional purchases made this November will be posted on this page.  I aim to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month.  However, in November I invested a little over $20,000!

I'm a dividend growth investor who is aiming to retire early in 4 years at the age of 45. My goal is to live off the income my dividend portfolio and rental property produce exclusively and leave the corporate rat race. I hope you will join me in this journey!


  1. Hey Blake,
    Great job getting so much cash put to work through December. It always feels nice juicing up the stock holdings this month, as you know it’s going to really kick in for the year to come.
    Take care,

      Thanks Ryan! I suspect I’ll be sitting on my hands in January after having a couple of big months towards the end of 2021. I certainly hope 2022 maintains the 2021 momentum… Happy new year!
