May 2021 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeAnother great month of dividend income! It’s no surprise stocks are my favorite form of wealth building assets, as many of you know, but I am learning and diversifying with other types of assets for educational purposes. I think it is fine doing so as long as you enjoy leaning about different kind of assets and do it in small amounts depending what small is in your life. You can always scale after experimenting it for a bit, just don’t be afraid to try new concepts. As there is a saying its not the asset class that makes the man but the man with enough education and experience that makes a man flourish. Always keep an open mind to new asset classes such as crypto of our times. Remember, “the more you learn, the more you earn”. Knowledge compounds the same way dividend investment returns do. 

I enjoy publishing these monthly dividend income reports as I have gained a much better understanding in how much of my passive income is coming in every month and how much it is growing over time. For the month of May I have received a total of 9 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. This is not to brag, but to motivate and inspire!

    Good to see you got caught up on the dividend posts, DV. Hopefully, all is OK.
    Wow, that’s some huge YoY growth! What led to such an improvement?
    Four triple-digit payouts is awesome. I don’t own any of those 4 stocks, but do own 3 of your smaller payers.

      All is good here in the age of information warfare. To answer your question, I unloaded my “elephant gun” during the 2020 Pandemic. I only wish my lot timing was better and position sizes, but took away plenty of mistakes/lessons to get better at next round. Next learning objective will be riding out this insane fiat currency hyper-inflationary period here in America, very irrational times to defend yourself and your family on all fronts!

      Take care.
