By far the worst month in my history of investing or at least active investing wise. My portfolio dropped a staggering 9.3%, which equates to almost $8.5k in value. Am I worried? Not at all. Markets go up and markets go down all the time. As a long term dividend growth investor, I see these dips in the market as buying opportunities. Too bad the dip occurred in one of my most busy spending months of the year.
Oh well, I don’t plan on retiring just yet so I’m sure they’re will be more opportunities in the future. On to the update!

February was the worst month for the U.S. markets since the presidential election with the market closing down almost -4%. This of course follows one of the better months for the stock market with the S&P index being up 5.6% in January. The market was in full reaction mode with the announcement of potentially new tariff’s for imported steel and aluminum.
The portfolio overall value definitely took a big size hit this month but I’m still not worried. I managed to passively make a good chunk of money due to my holding of high quality dividend stocks.
Another bit of portfolio news, HCN is now called WELL.

Another quick month has come and gone and I hope everybody had a fun and safe Halloween as holiday season is now officially in effect. With Thanksgiving and Christmas on their way, I hope everybody finds some time to spend with their loved ones. Perhaps instill on them the values of dividend investing! 😉
In a surprising turn of events, I managed to sell two stocks this month. One was due to its price spiking insanely high prompting me to go ahead and take the growth versus keeping it for the long run. The other sell was due to trimming down a position that had inflated when I decided to average down.
In other news, I signed up for a service called MoviePass (referral link) that allows me to see any standard 2D film in theaters. It’s limited to one ticket a day but that’s a lot of potential movies you can see in a month and it only costs $9.99 a month. I’ve used it for the last two months and so far I’ve had zero issues with it. This isn’t something I usually talk about since saving is usually what the name of the game is about but I’m a big movie lover and this definitely helps saves. If you think you’d be interested in something like that, please feel free to use my link above for a small kickback for myself.
Let’s get to the portfolio review for the Month of October!

And just like that, another month has come and gone. Nothing really exciting happened in my dividend portfolio in August. It continues to return dividends into my account and I continue to add to it every month to keep my returns going up. Nothing is more satisfying than seeing money flow into your account passively.
It seems like September will be the month of hurricanes as we have one hitting Florida and another two brewing in the ocean. I hope everybody stays safe out there!
Let’s go ahead and get this update going.

- $328.00 in dividends
- Added $1,400 to dividend portfolio
It’s been a great month for my dividend portfolio as I have added $1,400 to the investment account and received $328.00 in dividend payments for the month of June. This is a staggering amount and it’s the first time I can realize the power of dividend income and it’s ability to truly help someone live the passive income lifestyle.
