I believe sharing knowledge is one of the most valuable tools we have as investors. The internet has been an amazing tool for me thus far. I started out my investment journey as a young guy, with literally zero knowledge of the market, or how to invest properly. Over the last few years, i have manged to stumble across countless investment blogs by mostly self taught guys and girls, who are making a difference in their lives through smart investing in dividend paying stocks. The dividend investment blogging community is rich with extremely supportive, and helpful bloggers. These bloggers continually share valuable viewpoints, and information with each other on a daily basis. I have managed to pick up quite a few useful things over the last few years reading and learning from other bloggers. I started this blog as a way to give back to the people just starting out, as i was a few years ago. I hope to motivate and inspire new investors, much like the people that helped me when i was getting my start.
Within the next few weeks i plan to update the blog with information about my existing portfolio, as well as any new purchases i plan to make in the coming days. I do have my eye set on big oil currently, and am mulling over making investments in either CVX, or XOM, as they are trading at a fair discount currently.
My portfolio is not exactly large at the moment, so i am focusing my efforts currently on solid dividend players that pay out at, or over a 3% yield. CVX is currently yielding right around 4%, so this will likely be the position that i add to.
What are your thoughts? Are there better deals in the market right now? Let me know what you think! Thanks for stopping by.
