Well, it’s time for another update! The dividend payout rates have not changed and the overall appreciation of the stocks has raised!
The Free Lunch Experiment, which invests in dividend stocks, is my first true experiment here at MoneyReasons.com and was started with the article called: “Paying An Adult Allowance, A Lunch Experiment”.
In a nutshell, the experiment is that I want focused investments in certain dividend stocks to pay for my lunch when I go out to eat at work.
The real advantage is that the money I’m investing in, is money that I would have spent for lunch anyway. In my opinion, this make this money free because it would have been spent! So if I were to lose all of the money tomorrow, I would be sad, but it’s money that I wouldn’t have had anyway had I not started the experiment. In other words, the first dollar saved was a 100% gain on what I had previously, which was a spent dollar.
So much like the reference in the movie “Blade“, the Lunch Experiment has all of the advantages, and not of the disadvantages of being an stock dividend investment.
