Getting a pay raise while sitting on the couch?  Sign me up!  Thanks Cummins for another dividend increase!
Something I love about dividend growth investing is that each month I get to hear about companies I own deciding to pay me more money in dividends.  Just for owning a small portion of said companies.  Not going and doing R&D for new products or technology.  Not selling any products.  Not managing any employees or inventory.  Not making sales calls.  All I had to do was have the foresight to invest some of my savings in excellent companies.  That's dividend growth investing at work!  I mean who doesn't like getting a raise for doing nothing?  Dividend growth investing is far from a get rich quick investment strategy, rather you need to remain focused on the long term goal to be successful.

June 2018 Net Worth Update
While cash flow is more important when it comes to financial independence, it's still good to look at the balance sheet too, which is why I provide these net worth updates.  Since more and more of my net worth is tied to the markets, there's a larger correlation between my net worth and the markets, but in the long run as I continue to save and invest the net worth trend should be higher even though short term fluctuations can vary wildly.  As a dividend growth investor I'm not overly concerned with the short-term gyrations as long as the dividend stream remains in tact, but the markets' effect is noticeable.

The S&P 500 inched higher by 0.48% during June and my net worth followed suit thanks to the markets, dividends and most importantly savings.

During June my net worth increased $1,829.77.

Dividend Update - June 2018
It's the end of one month and the beginning of another so it's time for my favorite update: my dividend update.  These dividend updates reflect all dividends that I receive through my investing pursuits. I hope they can help inspire you to take control of your own finances and invest to build a passive income stream. What you use that stream for is up to you, whether it's to fund early retirement, just provide some FI/FU money, or even to provide for an annual vacation; the key is that it can provide options and open up all sorts of possibilities. You can check my dividend income or progress pages to see what dedication to an investment plan can give you.

Financial independence is a wonderful thing for people to strive for.  Heck it's one of things that just about everyone reading this has in common.

The big news last week was the latest chapter of the Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) or more commonly referred to as the stress test for banks.  

CCAR came about via the Dodd-Frank Act in response to the financial crisis where the banking system pushed the economy to depths rivaling the Great Depression.  Under the CCAR banks submit their capital structures to the Federal Reserve where they undergo stress tests to determine whether the banks have adequate capital to avoid the mess of a financial crisis 2.0.

Option Activity Recap - April 2018
Whenever I was laid off back in April 2016 I had a fairly sizable amount of cash in my 401k that I was set to rollover into an IRA.  With a large amount of cash on hand I wanted to explore a more active approach to generating income from my portfolio as opposed to the rather mundane dividend growth investing.  Don't get me wrong I love dividend growth investing, but I also want to look for ways to get to financial independence sooner rather than later.
