September 2019 Buy & Sells
I didn't do too much activity in September and the overall portfolio basically remained unchanged. It was a good dividend month since both Western Union and Ford Company paid dividends in September. Watching the passive income grow each month is pretty exciting since most of the work is passively done by sending money to my brokerage accounts and patiently holding stocks of wonderful businesses.
September 2019 Dividend Increases
No dividend increases this month.
Last month, I made only $3 in dividend income but it's awesome to see my dividend income hit two figures for the first time. My goal is to keep increasing the passive dividend income until I earn enough money from my dividend stocks to pursue early retirement!
