January Update: 9 Dividend Increases Plus Other Activity

Published Tue, 12 Feb 2019 09:00:00 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

This is the January update for the GrayBeard Retirement dividend holdings and income.
A short review
We plan to retire at age 54 in July 2020 and roam the country in our motorhome for a few years before settling into one location. Our plan consists of different time periods, each with a different investment purpose. They are:
From age 54 to 59.5 we will not yet be able to withdraw from IRA’s and will not have social security income. During this critical time period, income will be limited to cash savings and income from a small portfolio. We will spend all or part of this time traveling the country in our motorhome. I call this the Motorhome Period. From age 59.5 to 62 we can withdraw from IRAs but will not have social security income. From age 62 and older, we can withdraw from IRAs and will have social security income. During this potentially long time period, the plan must be more dynamic as we respond to market conditions. First, I will update the totality of the holdings then the progress on the Motorhome Period plan will be updated.
It was a busy month with 9 companies paying dividends, 9 dividend increases and 2 new purchases. There were no sales.
