Nice. Back in June your portfolio value was “only” 117.474. That’s an impressive increase!
It’s just the fluctuation of the portfolio, it will always go up and down in short term, but in longterm if the strategy is working should show uptrend upwards, but nevertheless passive income generation of cashflow is the key and I track that more than anything else.
I like when the portfolio is less than 50 stocks , you have the right mix of stocks ( with REIT ). Keep up..
You know, over the years the portfolio kept growing and growing into an ETF like entity, this is why I’ve started putting more and more into Vanguard ETF funds with VYM and VNQ. Love VNQ diversification in one big swoop, way too many great REITs in America.
Thanks for your feedback.
Hi great portfolio and great blog. especially i like the income you made under dividend income , it gave great source.
can you share your initial cost for portfolio
Thanks for your kind words, it took years to compete dividend income data, literally years… Slowly, but surely dividend income is growing continuously. I am looking forward what next 30 years bring!
I like your portfolio. At first, I was a bit concerned because I saw so many companies that will get “hurt” by increased interest rates, but then I found Apple, Banks and Insurence, so your more than okey =)
Thanks, but interest rates have nothing to do with it. It is ultimately based on the great businesses that have large moats and know how to make money regardless of market fluctuations.
Well, I think we can say now that interest rates do have an effect on the price for holdings such as REITs and other high yielding (at&t and verizon). But I do agree with you that in the end, it’s about what you say, and the decreased price is just a short-term thing. You don’t own many utilites, why?
Still looking for utility acquisition. Although, I am sure VYM has some.
What tool are you using to track your portfolio here on the blog. I upload screen shots but am running out of room!
Its a simple plugin called TablePress which is available for WordPress websites.
You have a nice portfolio. I added your blog to our blogroll. Keep tracking your success and do not get influenced by current market corrections.
Hello and many thanks on the portfolio. Yeah, the current market volatility is making people nervous and scared, though to me it is an excellent buying opportunity. Actually, I’ve already submitted my purchase order today! 🙂
All the best to you too.
Great looking portfolio Dividend Vet. You are doing great!
Much appreciated, though it is far from being fully built. Every month I try to built it one purchase at a time. I have a lot of work ahead of me to get this dividend income up where I want it to be.
Thanks for the support.
Nice portfolio. I like them all, except ARCP, KMI, DLR, and AAPL are a little too speculative for my taste. Good luck.
Thank you. I consider ARCP as my biggest risk in this portfolio, though KMI, DLR and AAPL have been doing superb and continue growing while increasing their dividend payouts.
My portfolio is not one size fits all and should be looked as an dividend growth investing example that fits my investing strategy. It is not to show which stocks to buy or not buy, but to show how my current holdings are progressing and my journey is unfolding.
Nice portfolio, DV!
It’s the first time I see Blackrock in one of all these DGI portfolios, fantastic company in my eyes, will be adding it to my own portfolio very soon. Keep up the good work!
I agree BLK is outstanding company. I don’t really like investing into banks, but they definitely know how to make money and so far so good. Can’t go wrong with this one.
Awesome portfolio DividendVet! You have quite a range of companies that are very well diversified.
Thank you, it has been a learning process all throughout this journey and diversification is something I am a very strong proponent of.
You have one nicely rounded portfolio. Some really nice companies and a few I would love to own. Good for you.

Hey you are doing great job over there as well, hope to get to your level type of income.
Thanks for stopping by.
Nice looking portfolio you got there, I will start following your blog as well, I’ve been discovering that more and more investors are posting their portfolio in their blog. I am working on my portfolio and planning on sharing it. Keep us updated! 🙂
I appreciate it. I am glad you discovered our little empire of dividend growth investors. It is an awesome community that just feeds off of each other.
Most of the investors like myself, don’t have anything to hide about their investing habits, I actually enjoy posting it and I think people find it quite useful.
That is great to hear you are taking proper steps to start your journey to financial independence. You have to start somewhere and the sooner you get this snowball rolling the better your future will feel.
I like your portfolio because it doesn’t appear too aggressive. You have some current high yielding stocks but a lot more solid longer term dividend growers like my portfolio has. Thanks for sharing!
Thank you, yes indeed we invested in a quite a few similar companies. I would love to add a few more that you have on your list.
I think my most aggressive and high potential pick is ARCP.
Nice Portfolio and wait until you get to your half mark in the Military and see how much money your receiving in dividends.
I have been in Navy for 19 years and I started back in 2001 with dividend reinvesting. My portfolio looks really good. Can’t wait to post my blog. Should be coming out next month. Will be tracking your blog for here out. Keep up the good work shipmate.
I am glad you like it. Yeah, I have no doubt it will grow to a much higher sum of money than military pension. It has been growing by leaps and time will tell when it eventually surpasses.
Looking forward to see your progress in investing throughout the years. I get easily inspired by other investors success stories.
Thank you for your dedicated service.
and good blog
will be following you around!
Thanks, you are welcome for the ride.
Yeah, it gives a nice perspective to what kind of companies you own. Nice looking portfolio!
I appreciate it! The companies I invest are primarily historic dividend growth stocks that increase their dividends over time.
