February Dividend Income

Before I start this post, I just wanted to state it is hard for me to get excited about finances the last few days.  There is so much tension and tragedy around Russia’s invasion of Ukraine to the point where it is depressing seeing it unfold.  I know there are fellow international bloggers whose sites I visit regularly and their country borders or is near a border with Russia of which I cannot imagine how they feel as Russia is saber rattling to those countries like Sweden, Finland, and others.   I have said my peace and will keep the Ukrainian people in my prayers.  Now onto the monthly post…

After 35 years of clocking in and out of work and religiously saving at least 10% annually in my 401K every year, my countdown to financial independence is in sight. Each month is a step closer and let’s look at how this past month is getting me there.

For the month of February I made $3,006.83; an increase of 5.96% versus this time last year.

In February I received 20 dividend raises which is a new record for me as the most raises ever in a single month. 

On the home front we are still dealing with health issues with extended family members.  My oldest daughter was just notified her company is closing and her last day will be the end May.  She is taking the news as best as she can, but my fear is with only 2 years of experience she may struggle to find a job.   

The end of February is my annual review at work which went fairly well as I received a 4% raise which will kick in around mid March.  I will most likely be redirecting some of that to future savings but not too much as 4% did not even cover inflation.

Let’s see the things we all love to see…charts and dividend payouts:

    • Thank you and glad to hear someone else is buying up APD. For a bit I was like am I the only one seeing this at a decent price or am I crazy😂 I plan on continuing to buy as long as this price stays so low.

  2. Thanks your for the concern. I’m sure she will land another job but this throws a monkey wrench into her plans to move out next year. As much as I lover her I did have ambitions on what to do to her bedroom when she moved out 😁.
