  1. Great job AA. You're killing it. Congrats and keep up the snowball. Thanks for sharing and happy for your progress bud. I know it's a long ass grind. Cheers.

    1. Thanks DH. Your doing awesome yourself. Keep up the great progress and grind!

  2. Awesome job collecting over $1k in passive income for January. Lots of great purchases as well for the month with many high quality names. GILD looks interesting to me going forward as does AMGN. Inspirational update as always and shows where I'd like to be in a few years with my passive income.

    1. Thanks DivHut. Pharm/ Biotech has been hammered this year. Think GILD is good value here. Keep up the good work!

  3. AA

    1. FF, get that snowball rolling and it will take care of itself. Roll snowball roll!

  4. AA,

    I've only recently discovered your blog but it's quickly clear how successful you are/have been over the years. This latest post with your earnings is impressive to say the least. I like the series of companies that you've been in and you had some very nice acquisitions this month as well. Like you, I'm into GE but I don't have as big as position as you do since I'm relatively new to investing.

    Can I ask why you're investing in DIS? I know that they're a great company and they have shown over the years to be extremely goal oriented but their stock would seem very low in terms of dividend payout when you look at the consistently high price that their stock averages.



    1. DivMonster, thanks for the comment. I should have bought DIS years ago instead of just starting a position. I am looking to add a little more growth to my portfolio. I am a little heavy stalwarts vs growth now.
