About Financial Investor

My Name Is Brent & I Want To Thank You For Visiting The Financial Investor!








My History of Investing!

It all began at the age of 7, I opened my first Savings Account through an in-school program Washington Mutual provided.

My parents & grandparents purchased my first 4 EE Savings Bonds at the age of 8 in 1993, by the age of 11 I had a total of 17 EE Savings Bonds.

(All EE Savings Bonds double at their 20 Yr Mark – Yes All Mine Doubled)

I purchased a Certificate of Deposit (CD) in my 20’s, I remember Chase offered a 12-month CD’s at 5% APY.

I started a Thrift Savings Plan (TSP), while serving in the Army.

I purchased 26 EE & I Savings Bonds between the ages of 21 and 26 and cashed them out 2018!


2017 has been a big year I changed my method from Growth Investing to Dividend Investing.  I am determined to build an Income Stream that will pay for all my Monthly Expenses!

I also started the Financial Investor Channel to Track, Record Gains & Losses, Discuss Stocks and Investments with other like-minded individuals.

    1. Hello Brig,
      Thanks, I’m working on improving the ability to find/read article posted and thin it down a bit to what I feel would be helpful.
      Inside my 401(k), I decided to just go 100% into VIIX.
      This was between the operating expense and expense ratio it was only .04%, it also had more then 10 years of history in order to track how it had done through past recessions. I felt it was well diversified and the great yield would allow a nice monthly compounding effect to build up. There was another that had a higher return, but it’s expense ratio was higher meaning more money taken out of my account and a lower yield, so while on paper it may of had a higher return – I would have more money removed and make less money per dividend payout.

      I contribute towards my 401(k), because I get a match 🙂

      Thanks for your comment Brig.
