  1. PMU you may have a .2% return on your active account but you have nearly doubled your monthly income since January! Continue using portions of current cash levels (along with your 20$ each month) to purchase more great companies.

    1. Good observation Early, I try to tell people all the time my income is always going up share price doesn't matter if I am going to keep the company.

    2. Exactly Early. I joke with my coworkers that are always looking at their 401ks. Its up X% oh no now its down Y%. I mention my blog's portfolio making $20 a month.
      That's a free chipotle burrito every week for the rest of my life!
      LOL. I've come to find that when I change the discussion away from dividends but into material things the dividends get me, it seems to be getting more attention.
