Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – July Dividend Stock Purchases – 2021

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Happy 4th of July!  This month I’m adding to existing positions where I am currently a little thin.  There aren’t many scorching values currently, so this is a perfect month to dollar cost average into existing positions.

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

So far, I’ve put a little over $2,600 to work with an average yield of 2.8%.  I’ve added almost $75 of yearly forward dividend income this month!

The $IRM purchase was made via DRIP.

New Buys - July 2021

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.

All additional purchases made this July will be posted on this page.  I aim to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month.  However, last month I invested almost $7,200!

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. Congrats on a putting a good amount of money to work! I’m in the same boat where I’ve been struggling to find good investment candidates so it’s been a lot of DCA and leaning into some higher growth/lower yield opportunities for the long term.

      Thanks! I’m with you! Gotta keep adding money every month… even when you can’t find incredible deals. A little here and a little there become a LOT down the road.

  2. Hello,

    I have been reading your blog over the last couple of weeks. Thank you for sharing all of this information. I really appreciate the information as I continue to learn and determine where to put my money.
    In my research of dividends I’ve come across the high yielding cover call divided stocks/ETF. I don’t see mention of covered call stocks in your blog – is there a specific reason you don’t invest in covered call ETFs? If you do have a piece written about them somewhere could you please share that link?

    Thank you for your time, Maverick

      Hi Maverick,

      Thanks for reading and the comment. I do own a little $QYLD – mostly as an experiment. I wrote a little about my thoughts on how $QYLD is not a dividend growth stock here. Hopefully, that helps! If you are looking for immediate income, then they are a good option. However, if you are looking for increases in either dividend growth or price appreciation – then there are much better options out there.

  3. A nice group of stocks of fine businesses you added to your portfolio. Keep adding, the compound effect is already working for you!
    Cheers
