Recent Purchase V - July 2016

Recent Purchase: With the country in full political mode with the two recent political conventions, one can even debate which party will be better for DGI community or even for investors alike. However one has to see what are your goal and follow those goals no matter what the outcome is. Since neither party will control you and your desire goals or be able to reach them for you. It is with that view point that for me going forward I will simplify how a track my goals and outcome. Since we are half way through the year I will be focus mostly on my individual Account with Sharebuilder as it will be my main source of income in retirement. Loayl3 as much as I like it has limited choices which I will transfer all proceeds for my sale there at month end to a newly form custodian account for Divident Pursuit Jr. He is three years old now and a good opportunity to get him started. I will try to invest $1000 a year going forward. I will eventually set those goals in stone how I wil

Recent Purchase IV - July 2016

Recent Purchase PG, SIR, CL, CLX, GOV and FAST After take a short vacation, we got home in time yesterday to setup my weekly purchase on sharebuilder account. I really did not wanted to add any new stocks to my individual sharebuilder account, as I feel it has reach a point where I need to start increasing amount of shares own versus add new stocks to track. But both my ROTH and IRA account are in their imphancy hence there is where value and growth stocks will be placed going forward. I will however be trying to put more emphasis on the ROTH account for tax reason going forward. So here are today purchases for July 19, 206 Sharebuilder accounts PG $200 2.28 shares @ $85.71 ROTH IRA  FAST $50 1.08 shares @ $42.58 CLX $50 .33 shares @ $136.11 CL $50  .62 shares @ $74.21 IRA GOV $40 1.54 shares @ $23.38 SIR $30 .94 shares @ $27.66 This will add $13.99 to my forward yearly dividend which now totals $811.01 and passes my first years goal within the first half of the y

Recent Raises updates July 2016

Raises updates Everyone on the planet loves to receive a raise here and there just to maybe keep up with inflation. The cost of living has been on a rise in the last 15 years at an increditable pace. As a government employee we received maybe two or three raises that I can remember in the last eight to nine years. I am not the one to complain, however one just need to keep up with the inflation to just make it end meet or support a family. This is one reason I love the aspect of investing in dividend growth stocks. They at least try to keep up with inflation and the power of compounding takes over like a snow ball coming down a mountain. I like that aspect specially after return home from a mini vacation in the mountains of Vermont (Jay Peak area), and visiting the old site of Old Man On the Mountain. But without any hesitation here are some recent raises that I just realized plugging in new purchases in the last few weeks, since I been mostly vacationing for the summer here and
