Money in the Trough – Buying Some Higher Yields – January 2018

Dividend Growth Stocks

Wow, this month came and went pretty quickly.  Below are the dividend stocks I purchased this month.  You’ll see that i’ve been buying some higher yields this month. This is somewhat of an extension from last month, when I also added some more REITs. Clearly not been the best strategy with markets pulling back a bit the last few days.

So far this month I’ve added a little over $700 dollars in forward dividend income!  A pretty awesome month!

New Buys - January 2018

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.  

I will keep this page updated with additional purchases made this month.

I'm a dividend growth investor who is aiming to retire in 7 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!

      Thanks Rob! We’ll see soon if it was unwise to add so many REITs right now. Thanks for dropping by!

    Hi Blake,

    I’ve been following your site for a while and I really heard about dividend investing from this blog so I use it as a source of information.

    Just wanted to ask a quick question, do you see yourself quitting your job and living off dividend income at some point?

    If so, how much money do you estimate needed for such a thing?
    Hearing some numbers from you might help.

    Thanks a lot (:

    Wow, that was a busy week you had, DP. Looks like the utilities held up well over the past couple of weeks of the falling market. I’m sure you’ll do just fine in the long run. Definitely a nice addition to the forward dividend income.
