Biggest fun was going to see Billie Eilish in concert with my kid. It was her first concert and a great show!
Here she is in her bucket going around the arena. She got real close to us
And a wide shot of the Climate Pledge Arena
The other fun thing was buy more dividend earning shares.
During most months, I receive a small chunk of dividends from my holdings, I will go shopping for the best bargain I can find among my holdings. It's all about the compounding of my holdings and returns. It's the whole point of dividend growth investing.
This past month was a tad different. I focused on 2 goals. First was matching my spending of 2021 with a few companies I frequently shop at. I explain this in my post about 2022 goals
Secondly was buying a handful of AT&T shares since I would be receiving 1 share of the new WBD company for every 4 of AT&T I held. That's free money in my eyes. So I focused a lot on AT&T shares before the ex-dividend date.
The result was spending $5,169.58 of my dividend income on new shares that will result in $159.40 of dividend income. That's a yield of 3.08% And since these are growth stocks, that total will only go up.
Here's a breakdown of my purchases:
Remember, if I can do this, so can you.
