These days, everyone is working harder than ever to pursue that dream of retirement. Wither retirement comes early or later, we all are striving and preparing for it. However, everyone goes about preparing in different ways. Some find themselves building a diverse portfolio of dividend or growth stocks to provide passive income for years to come. Others take the more hands off approach and invest into low cost S&P500 funds and just let it ride. Real estate is very popular, especially among the baby boomer generation. Though not optimal, you could also just have a big stock pile of cash you can live off of to it retirement.

Finally I can post my first buy in August! I have been slacking lately on my buys but capital has been tight and used for other things. Can’t believe it has over a month since my last buy back at the end of June where I bought more shares of GIS. I am pleased to announce my August buy of LTC Properties Inc (LTC). This is a new position in my portfolio. I purchased 17 shares at a cost basis of $46.97. You can find more info on LTC below.

Seems it was only a week or so ago when I posted my dividend income from June. It has already been a whole month since then. Can’t believe how fast this year is going by. Need to enjoy the nice weather more while it is still around. Nothing really anything exciting happened this month, but from a dividend perspective, there are some outstanding growth percentages. Let’s dive into the numbers!
