2017 May Dividends have arrived !

2017 May Dividends The sun is shining, I am playing golf weekly , and Dividends are pouring in.  It is hard to be in a bad mood right now as there is so much to be thankful for.

But why you ask? Simple answer…. Because once the date is gone, you will not be able to catch up on this year again. This is really important because the contributions...

March Dividends 2017 – Solid Month !

March Dividends 2017 Well, we were greeted this morning with an April 1st snowstorm ! Ugh!  When is spring going to arrive?  Despite this depressing event, I was able to smile a bit when my March dividends were added up. I had another great month and appear being basically on track for the year’s lofty goal of $7,927.10. I will need to be completely focused to achieve this. That will include reinvesting, and adding as much new money as possible. I am going to add a little for 2016 contribution before April 15th. I believe in maxing out if possible the...
