Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world. He who understands it, earns it . He who doesn't, pays it.

December 2014 Dividends

Why do I love to invest in high quality dividend paying stocks? Simple! For the dividends duh! Now that the obvious is out and in the open I would like to remind everyone why dividends are so important (to me). I find it fascinating how compounding interest combined with fresh capital complement each other so well. For all the car buffs out there reading this, think of compounding interest alone as a 5.4 Liter V8 engine, pretty powerful eh? Now think of slapping a turbo charger on that bad boy. Oh man think of the potential power that could make. When it comes to increasing your dividend income adding fresh capital is much like turbo charging its growth rate.

But until that happens I will keep playing it safe. With that being said, the company I purchased has been paying dividends for more than 180 consecutive years.

November 2014 Dividend

Wow what a month! These past 4 weeks have been nothing but a blur. Again I would like to apologize for my lack of posts. This month in particular I managed to take some time off work (9 days) to recharge the batteries and spend some quality time with people who have made my first 3 year of being in the real world (from age 19-22) nothing but a positive and amazing experience.
