Thank you for recommending this post to our Best of feature.

Right now I send money for more K shares every payday, not a lot but some of that pay your self first rule of thumb. I have found it to be painless and have gathered up about 30 shares in the past couple of years and plan on keeping at it until I get around 100.

Good for you! I don't know your reason for choosing to invest in K but at 2.7% their dividend seems a bit small to me.

I share your predilection for AT&T (T)

and like their 4.7% yield better.

I assume you're reinvesting dividends. Here are two lists of companies that have been paying increasing dividends 25 years or more. You may find U.S. Dividend Champions particularly helpful.

(It's a DRIP site, but there's nothing to keep you from buying whole shares of them through your discount broker.)

Being rich is when your money works for you, not when you work for your money.
