Wealth: Stock Purchase

Hello again, dividend reapers. Today I wanted to go over the purchase of my newest acquisition into the dividend scythe: Qualcomm Inc (QCOM). I've detailed a description of the company, where it currently stands, and where I was able to make my entrance in the video above. If however you want to read instead of watch, the following is a quick breakdown of the company.

Wealth: Stock Alert

Hello again loyal followers and guests. Today I want to talk about one of my potential buys - Tupperware! I have reviewed this company in the past but recent times have changed my outlook on where it stands. This leaves me at a new opinion of the company as a whole and it also left me wanting to share my thoughts.

Tupperware (TUP) is a manufacturer and distributor of multiple Tupperware brands such as the ever so recognizable containers and other not so recognizable lines that follow cosmetics and personal care products. While the company itself has shown little to no real motion other than hills and dips over the last year, the company as a whole still has a lot of buying potential.

One of the key items that has always seemed to stick with me is the product's inability to become irrelevant regardless what portion control items try to do. While our waist lines seem to get bigger and bigger, our ability to make more and more food continues to astound. This leaves the product itself with an ever increasing market. Pair this with the potential for a recession (which will inevitably come) and one has a recipe for a great buy. This is why I intend to purchase shares in the near future.

Happiness: Wine Tasting

Wine - some people love it and some people hate it. Personally, I love the stuff. It can be the perfect fit to a great day or the perfect requirement for a bad one. Whether you have any experience with it or not, wine tasting an be a great activity for the seasoned or the inexperienced and it doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg to do it. One must simply go into it with an open mind and the willingness to give up a little bit of time to have a lot of enjoyment.

To begin, one must simply have access to wine. You can go to a winery or simply go to the store and pick up a few bottles that you find that look like they might be interesting. The cost doesn't matter - good wine can be found in some of the most surprising places. Don't let anyone tell you any different. Then, once you've got your hands on a bottle (or a few), it's time to start tasting. There are a few things to know however before you start your tasting. By following these steps, you can almost ensure that you will be able to get the most bang out of your buck. Let's get started.

Wealth: January Dividend Income

Part of investing in dividend growth stocks is trusting in the process. There are going to be some good months and there are going to be some bad months. The trick is to try to align for dividend payments to be about equal every month. This is a trick that I have not yet mastered. As one can see from last years dividend payments, I might be a little off as far as consistency goes.

I can't give up though. The dividend snowball is a slow moving process at the start as you try to build up a good enough roll to get it moving. While months like this January may have felt small in comparison to some other months or small in comparison to where I thought it might be by now, it is still an amount of money that I wouldn't otherwise have.

It's good to keep this lesson at the forefront of my mind as I don't want to start straying from this path. If I think too much about other "get rich quick" schemes, I may find myself potentially falling for them and that just simply will not do! It simply will not do at all - not one bit! One has to remember the other types of dividends that have been given through the month.
