Dividend Income

Dividend Income – April 2014

The spring is here and the markets have started to show how they can drop at a moment’s notice. Did you panic? I hope not. I think it was a moment to rejoice that we had a buying opportunity. I personally did not make any transactions during that period. I just did not have money ready to invest. I also wasn’t worrying about the drop since my portfolio is setup for compound growth return with my dividends and the DRIP programs. Related: How To Setup DRIP accountsI have been a dividend investor for 5 years now.

I have written about many of the topics in the past two as I try to cover the basic while also diving deep on stock analysis and the tools and trick to turn investing into a process without emotions.

It fills up my ride to work in the morning. In the evening I tend to relax while listening to music though. I initially posted my list last year in may 2013 and I am providing an update as we have new comers in the field! Depending on the length of your drive to work, different podcasts may be more applicable but I have found a few podcasts that I really cycle amongst them. Best Investment Podcasts 1. Mad Money with Jim Cramer I admit, I am surprised to put Cramer as my first. After one podcast, I wasn’t convinced. After 2 weeks, I am convinced it’s the best that I found right now. It’s not like I am going to execute on any of the recommendations but you do learn about different sectors. You also learn about very specific companies in details with CEO interviews. I also like the battles he does between ...
