We are entering into a difficult market for short term investors. Long term income investors will hopefully see this as an opportunity. Although it will likely be temporary there is the chance for short term panic. With a fractional (17%) government shutdown and a debt ceiling debacle looming there could be some attractive entry points to look out for. Personally I have no long term concerns and my investment strategy remains the same.

Here’s a look at a few dividend posts I’ve been reading this week.

Mi Fi Journey: Pay attention to the things that matter

My Own Advisor: Leadership and Financial Parallels

Financially Integrated: Turning down a higher paying job

Dividend Guy: The core dividend portfolio

Dividend Mantra: Buying Exxon

DGSI: Recent dividend increases

  1. DL,

    Thanks for the mention! Much appreciated.

    We’ll see what opportunities come our way. Today was definitely not one of those days, however.

    Best wishes!

  2. Thx for the mention!

    I think that the whole shutdown story is only noise, the market will bounce back and continue to rally 🙂

    Thnx for the mention. Default on debt ceiling would be potentially catastrophic. I’m still hopeful sanity will prevail.
