It’s astonishing how quickly this year has flown by… they say time flies when you’re having fun. I must have had a blast this year as I feel like I just woke up and the year is almost over! Crazy!

November’s dividend increase adds $54 in annual dividend income. This dividend growth is $37.80 more than I received November 2018. This is healthy growth and I’m very happy with the results. November’s dividend increases are the equivalent of investing an extra $1,542.86 of new money at 3.5% yield!
Net worth sputtered higher surpassing last month’s record high!
Let’s do the numbers…
Cash edged up a little last month. The majority of this is due to an accounting error. I’ve forgotten to account for the interest we are earning on our high yield savings account. I guess I could add it to the dividend income section… but it’s not really dividend income. I suppose I could list it as Interest on Cash – INT. Anyway, this month it was $284 and last month it was $310.
I went into this a great deal in last month’s report but I’m still not over it… so I’ll summarize.
We got screwed – a national home builder built us a crappy house, we told them it was crappy and didn’t want to buy it, then they stole our earnest money.
So… now we are spending a little extra time, effort and cash fixing our current home for a possible sale in the future. We are a little burnt out from the home selling process so we may just be happy with where we are for a little while longer.
As far as our rental is concerned, everything is great. Our tenant payed on time and we haven’t heard a peep about repairs.
I’m thrilled with the progress I’m making! The dividend investing strategy is continuing to shine for me. I hope you are experiencing the same kind of success – or greater success of course – in your investing journey!
