The Daily Dividend Portfolio – Quick Video Recap

email image daily dividend investor smart income guide passive cash flow streamAfter receiving quite a few emails from readers asking questions about the Daily Dividend Investor portfolio I thought it might be helpful to create a few videos answering some of the most common questions.

Over the next few weeks I’ll be posting a number of videos that tell what exactly the DDI portfolio is, why I started the portfolio, how I choose the stocks I add, and most importantly, I show you how to build your own passive income portfolio starting with very little money!

In the mean time, take a look at my first video in the series, “What is the DDI Portfolio?” I hope you enjoy it and feel free to post any questions you might have in the comments below. Thanks!

Over the last few wchristmas holiday daily dividends investors income portfolio purchaseseeks I’ve done a bit of holiday shopping  for the Daily Dividend Investor portfolio. While I wouldn’t say that I scored any real bargains, I added a few new positions to the portfolio that should really help increase my income stream in 2012 and beyond.

As I add positions to the DDI portfolio I’m not afraid to put some money at risk, buying what may be a smaller, unproven or just less stable company in return for higher yield and the possibility of capital gains down the road.

I do like to try and keep things balanced – so for every riskier stock purchased I try to add what I often refer to as a “Steady Eddie” – those less interesting companies that just pay a consistent, albeit smaller, dividend quarter after quarter, year after year.

A quick overview of my recent purchases is shown below:

Things are Quiet like a mouse…

Things around the Daily Dividend Investor have been a bit quiet lately. Perhaps you’ve noticed that I’ve started migrating the site over to a hosted WordPress solution.

Thanks to Erica Douglass over at : www.erica.biz (one of my favorite blogs) – she recently hooked me up with great a 50% off all hosting plans disount at Hostgator (www.hostgator.com)! I signed up for their “Baby Plan” which lets me host unlimited sites for 2 years for $100! I figured I couldn’t beat the price and I’d heard really great things about their service so I went for it.

I’ve spent the last week or so working on bringing up a few sites including Daily Dividend Investor and I have to say that it’s been easier than I ever expected. Although I still have a lot to learn – I haven’t even begun to implement 10% of the tools they provide for building, maintaining and growing your own web site. If you’re in the market to setup a site – you should definitely check them out. I promise it won´t take you long to get up to speed and get your content published.

Other musings…

cash piles up daily dividend investor wsop cashflow income stream life wsop poker leadersWhile I’ve been focusing my time on the technical side of things, the DDI portfolio has been quietly churning away, building up cash, which as of today is just shy of $600, at $598 and change. I’ll be making my planned capital additions for November and December in the next few days which will bring the cash balance up closer to $3000 – priming the portfolio to add new positions when the time is right.

A positive market

Because the market has been moving upward over the last few days, I’m not in a big hurry to add to my positions. Severalstocks rise christmas santa claus rally bull market daily dividend investor passive income stream lifetime positions have recently announced dividend increases, so the portfolio continues to gain momentum even with no new asset purchases. As the European debt crisis continues to work towards a positive solution, it appears that the US Markets will likely continue this “melt-up” process we’ve seen over the last couple of weeks.

In the mean time as the broader U.S. Stock Market (Dow / Nasdaq / S&P 500)  rises, I’m spending some time looking for undervalued dividend stocks that I can deploy my cash into sooner rather than later. As bank savings and CD rates remain low and continue to trend lower, it’s becoming more and more difficult to find the quality dividend assets, but I’m still looking.

Focus!

Stay tuned for more….

A new look for the DDI blog…

A new look for the DDI blog…building blog design daily dividend investor portfolio income

I’ve spent some time over the last week or so tweaking the design and look of the Daily Dividend Investor blog. While ultimately, it’s true what they say that  the substance and content is way more important than the style – I think style is important in that the content needs to be easy to read to have real value.

I spent a couple of hours previewing all of the   WordPress themes that are available and finally settled on one called “Freshly”. I like it because the header image is clean and the menus are crisp and easy to find. I’m not wordpress tools change design daily dividend income investor portfoliothrilled about the font selection, but since I’m only using the free WordPress service I don’t get a lot of choices. For now I’m quite happy with this theme and the layout – I hope you’ll find it easier to read as well.

Over the next week or so I hope to provide more information / content about the current portfolio holdings as well as how I got where I am and how I plan to move the portfolio forward, as well as a Q&A section. I hope you will come back often – I look forward to hearing from you!
