December 2019 Buys and Sells

I didn't make any major buys and sells in December. I bought a few more shares of Ford and added Walmart stock to my portfolio. At first, I bought Ross Stores but decided to grow with Walmart instead. I like both companies but believe Walmart is better positioned for the transition to online ecommerce even though Ross Stores is doing really well in the low cost discount retail business.

General Thoughts

I am happy to experience another new decade and start off with some positive movement in 2020. Tracking my dividends has been an eye opening habit because it helps you stay motivated and see slow but steady growth. My first dividend income report in August 2019 was only $3.61 so I'm thrilled to make so much progress in such little time. This is the power of long term dividend growth investing.

If you are thinking about building a dividend growth investment portfolio, then now is the perfect time. We are entering 2020 and everyone gets a fresh slate for this decade. Personally, I made a lot of mistakes from 2010 to 2019 that set me back financially but I'm ready to learn from my financial mistakes and move forward financially with plenty of learning experiences along the way.
