The average weekly dividend has crossed the 6$ mark. This increase is attributed to the extra shares in WMT. Until actual dividends are distributed I believe this portfolio will linger in the 6 dollar range for some time. For now, I plan on putting an emphasis toward step 2 of my REIR strategy. That is, eliminating debt.
I believe reducing debt will eliminate a lot of risk with my personal finance situation. And at the same time, give me the chance to invest huge amounts of money that otherwise would keep flowing to the banks.
