Invest In The Rewards Of 2018
Happy New Year! Last year turned out to be a great year financially with my Net Worth having it's largest jump thanks to a solid bull market. As most of you know by now, I decided to sell all of my dividend paying stocks and take some profits while the market is at an all time high. I then turned my focus to building a diversified and solid foundation of dividend ETF's in November and December. That decision paid off greatly with December bringing me the largest dividend income to date!
I will continue to invest in ETF's and Mutual Funds in my Roth 401(k) and Roth IRA in full positions of $15,000. I have a brokerage stock account with Fidelity Investments in which I will buy individual stocks going forward in full positions of $3,000 which is taxable. My full buy lists of ETF's and Stocks can be found on my Investments page. As you can see, finding high quality dividend paying investments is not a hard job. The hard part is earning the funds to invest for the long term. If I had an unlimited supply of capital to put to work, just imagine the buying spree I would tackle!
I encourage everyone that isn't invested in the stock market to start investing in 2018 even if it's a small amount. I have a strong feeling that 2018 will be another big year for dividend growth investors and I look forward to brainstorming my thoughts here. Here's to the next 25 years of compounding dividends!
Full Disclosure: I'm Long on Dividend Growth Stocks in 2018!
