Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – October Dividend Stock Purchases – 2022

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

So, it looks like this spooky market is in full effect this October!  I’m happy to be filling up my Halloween basket (portfolio) with candy (dividend growth stocks) during these times!  Here are the dividend stocks I’ve pickup so far this October.

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 $13,700 to work with an average yield of 3.2%.  I’ve added almost $450 of yearly forward dividend income this month!

My dividend portfolio will be updated with these buys shortly.

All additional purchases made this October will be posted on this page.  I aim to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month.  However, in September I invested right around $55k!

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. What are your thoughts between JEPQ vs JEPI? Looks like a solid list you got going there. Also great work getting so much into the market in September. Your dividend portfolio is going to benefit forever from that.

      Thanks Drew! The JEPQ purchase was a bit of a timing buy. It was just too cheap to not dip a toe in those waters and I want more NASDAQ exposure. JEPI is really interesting, but I wish I knew exactly what was in the ELNs!!! I suspect I would have a much larger position in JEPI, if I had more data (AKA: more data was available). When JEPI was at $50.25, I had to work really hard to not buy and make it my largest single position.
