Linked here is a detailed analysis and commentary.”
My Journey presents Updating My Perpetual Income Dividend Machine posted at My Journey to Millions, saying, “I started my perpetual income machine dividend portfolio at the beginning of last year and it has quickly become one of my favorite pieces of my financial world. It isn’t large (yet) but it will be! The goal is simple to find undervalued stocks only within the Dividend Aristocrat Index. Last year I only updated the portfolio twice, however, this year I have been investing more and more money into the portfolio per month and thus think it should be updated every 60 days.”

Investor Junkie presents Scottrade Review: The Consistently Good Discount Broker posted at Investor Junkie, saying, “Scottrade is like the Philadelphia Eagles of the investing world.
