Recent Buy



Scheduled for June 24, 2016 I purchased 1.5061 shares of The Walt Disney Company (DIS) at $98.91. The ESPN noise continues to dominate Disney and keep the price down under $100. Add in the other issues of the tragic alligator problem and the portion of the Brexit drop we had today it has stayed in the red. It is my hope that it stays down for a bit longer so I can buy more!

May 2016 Dividend Update

Hello everyone! We have made it to June and within 2 weeks of me finishing school. One last group project to complete and present (Don't we love group work?) I am here on campus working on my portion of it later towards the due date than I would have liked. This seems to happen a lot when busy people are thrown into a group and have to make it work. While I have been busy working a full time job and taking courses my strategy also has not changed at all. I have not lost any belief in an income strategy being a very attractive and realistic way to fund a retirement lifestyle. It does not matter how old you are when it comes to dividends. There is not a dividend officer at work that checks on your account to make sure you don't make too much money for their liking. If there is enough regular passive income after all your expenses and you don't feel like working anymore then you can choose to say goodbye to the early morning alarm clock. You can keep working if it is not an issue for you and you enjoy it, but if it is stressful, long, and grueling hours that steal away from your health, family, and happiness you can choose to say goodbye whenever you want. I would have more to say, but am saving it for a more focused article sometime in the near future.

So, instead let's see how the dividend world treated me in May!

April 2016 Dividend Update



Here we are in May, where the weather should start to begin warming up. The summer months should bring about more enjoyment as we are able to do more outdoor activities and sports and actually enjoy being outside. April has end and here I am tallying up my dividend income with about 6 weeks left until my graduation. I hope everyone had a great month in April and look forward to reading your reports and plans for the summer.

Recent Buy


On 04/25/2016 I purchased 1.4422 shares of Walt Disney Company (DIS) for $103.29/share. The stock has been on a run for the last few weeks. The company has a lot of successful movie launches already this year and upcoming for the next few years. The market has rightfully ignored the CEO successor situation, but I won't be surprised if it does come into play if Bob Iger does not extend soon.

March 2016 Dividend Update


We are into April, but you would not know it is going to get warmer soon if you were here in Michigan. Meanwhile as I have been focused on my investments and sidetracked from time to time by both work and school the dividends kept on coming in strong. I finished March with my first time receiving over $300 in a month. I am also very near completion of my degree with only one more course left to complete. I plan on attending my graduation in mid June. I finally can see the end of the undergrad degree coming to a close.
