Nobody ever said being a dividend growth investor was easy. Frankly, I have to constantly remind myself, that the sea of red in my dividend portfolio isn’t important. The thing that matters is that my dividend income is consistently rising through my new buys and company yearly dividend increases.
Below are my new dividend growth stock purchases for the month of October. I was traveling the first part of this month so the buys are posting a little late.

You will see that my trading fees have decreased in my IB account. Down from $1 to $0.33 a buy. DGI had a post that informed me that I wasn’t using the most frugal setting in my Interactive Brokers account. I needed to adjust my pricing from fixed to their tiered plan. The dividend blogging community is a wonderful group of people sharing what they know, thank you!
I will keep this page updated with any additional dividend growth stocks purchases I make this month.
My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.
Have you been buying this month or are you waiting for the election results for some better deals?
