I will be taking a break from this feature after this most mainly as I will be aware on holiday from the 4th October but also to focus on my content.

However, I will still be sharing the best articles I come across on Twitter so be sure to follow me: @richestmaninLDN.

Article Of The Week 4: Financial Thing

We made it through another week which means another epic article to share!

This week, Laurence of FinancialThing.com discusses the cost of fees and how they affect your overall return.

If you’re not careful, fund and/or brokerage fees can hungrily eat into your returns in a very subtle way. You probably won’t notice until it’s too late!

What I liked most

The email from the gentleman who was ready to leave his financial advisor (I won’t spoil it too much).

Article Of The Week 3: MoneyGrower

Happy 3rd (week) anniversary of Article Of The Week, the feature dedicated to writers and bloggers better than myself.

Self deprecation aside, MoneyGrower.co.uk is an outstanding investment blog.

in this piece, Share Price Charts Can Be Misleading – GSK And The Power Of Dividends, we learn about the underrated power of reinvesting dividends and not worrying too much about share price growth.

What I liked most

“You can start to see how buying a couple hundred shares of GlaxoSmithKline and holding it to reinvest for a decade or so can give you a “wow” income stream a decade from now.”

In other words, keep reinvesting! that way, the dividends continuously look after you.

Article Of The Week 2: Dividend Daze

Week 2 of Article Of The Week. I hope everyone checked out the debut article, last week.

This week, Dividend Update – August 2017 by Dividend Daze.

No mystery here, I’m sure you’ve figured out what this article is about!

What I liked most

Dividend Daze beat his own record with 7 different companies paying him in August. Quite the achievement and the future should only get brighter.

There’s also some insightful graphs that help to make sense of the progression.

 

I love mixing it up with dividend investors on Twitter, they seem to have the most focus and a strong commitment to the long term.

Though, strictly speaking I wouldn’t class myself as a Dividend Investor, 25 of the 29 stocks I hold are dividend payers and I rely heavily on dividends for the majority of my passive income.

I hope you enjoy this article as much as me. Dividend Daze does these monthly so it’s a gift that keeps on giving (like dividends!).

Article Of The Week: Of Dollars And Data

As a potentially up and coming blogger, I like to look at those that are better than me.

This new feature will look at articles or posts that I’ve enjoyed from different blogs from the world of personal finance and investing.

This week, Falling Fast and Rising Slow by Of Dollars and Data.

A great article about how stock prices slump quickly and ascend sluggishly. Well worth reading!
