Well, I’ll start by addressing the elephant in the room for dividend investors. There isn’t much value out there. Especially as interest rates continue to fall (thanks for the detailed analysis on the impact of interest rates Lanny) . Still, after talking to Lanny on the phone Saturday night about our portfolios, I realized there still are a few companies trading at a discount. So I decided to dust off the Dividend Diplomats Stock Screener and put a watch list together. Here are the three companies on my Dividend Stock Watch List for June and July.
Time is flying and life is moving at 1,000 miles per hour. It is RIDICULOUS to think that 2019 is almost halfway over. I guess that’s why we are pursuing financial freedom after all, right? To take back our time, slow things down, and enjoy every step along the way. And also reduce stress. We are all on this journey together! Which is why each month, we aggregate as many dividend income summary articles from around the community. So we can share, enjoy, and cheer on each individual journey. Here is the May 2019 version of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series!

Lanny said it best in his stock purchase article…the month of May was actually wild! Every day presented a new twist, turn, and market swing. I would transfer cash to my brokerage and get ready to make a purchase. Then boom, the market would swing upward. Despite the madness, the dividend income continued to flow. After all, that’s part of the beauty of dividend investing. Lanny published great dividend income results this month. As always, he is a tough act to follow. Especially when he announces a 48.8% YOY dividend increase. But I’ll give it my best shot. It is time to review my May Dividend Income summary!
The month of May was absolutely WILD. You could not even tell what was going to happen each day, let alone each hour. Is the new saying – April Rises, brings May Surprises? It does this time around, that’s for sure. The trade tariff discussions, inverted yield curves, interest rate pressure & sensitivity, really have have created opportunities in the stock market. Therefore, as a dividend investor must do, I went on a slight dividend stock purchase spree!
