Starting My First Dividend Portfolio!

This is my first post to my dividend blog!

My goal for this blog is to keep track of my dividend portfolio that I’ve recently started. I hope to update my monthly purchases and received dividends regularly. It will be interesting to look back to the past years to see how my portfolio grew over the years and hopefully this could help and motivate others to do the same!

For the past few years, I’ve been looking for a long term investment with low risk that pays a fair return. Then I found out about dividend growth stocks for the first time. The power of dividend reinvesting and compounding convinced me to go this route.

I wished that I’ve known about such an investment at an earlier age so that I could have snow balled the portfolio to a much bigger size by now. But it is better to have started late than never and at age 32, my portfolio size of 23 companies is not too shabby.

In the future, I will have a specific break down of my current portfolio and as to why I’ve chosen these companies. It is very exciting to know that just by owning great companies you are generating passive income!

    Congrats on post numero uno. At least you are in the game now instead of watching from the sidelines. It’s never to late to begin, just might take a while longer for the snowball. Best of luck.

    Nice looking and diverse portfolio. For not holding that many names we seem to share quite a few stocks in common. You don’t really see ABX or GG in any of the DGI portfolios online. I guess gold is something that most dividend investors don’t invest in. Interesting thing about ABX, the very first stock I ever bought in 1988 was a dividend gold mining company called Homestake Mining. They were bought out by ABX. I wrote about on my blog. ABX and Homestake… good memories form a long, long time ago.
