A September to Remember? More like a September that investors would like to forget! Stocks got rocked again yesterday, leaving the S&P 500 down almost 4% on the month now.
Showing my readers how to use dividends to build wealth and unlock streams of income is why I write my letter. When I recommend a stock for its dividend, I always try to ensure that I’m not overpaying. I don’t, however, try to time the market. But sometimes a dividend stock will get hit with a big price move.

The early action on “Fed Days” like this one doesn’t matter much, since it’s likely to change once we get the news later. But for now, stocks and Treasuries are modestly higher while crude oil is giving back a bit of its recent gains. The dollar, gold, and silver are flattish.
As we head into the fall, 2023 has left egg on the face of most forecasters. The seemingly inevitable recession on the heels of a turbulent 2022 hasn’t materialized. The economy continues to grow, inflation is abating, and the stock market has had a remarkable year.
