July dividend income figures may not pack the same punch and dollar amounts that June has to offer, but that doesn’t mean that we all weren’t making moves and CRUSHING IT during July. Almost every dividend income report we read during the month saw some form of major progress, personal records, or discussed how movers were made to increase future dividend income! To echo the point we made last month, we are doing everything we can to get through as many dividend income articles as we can each month. If you aren’t included in our monthly summary, it doesn’t mean we didn’t read your article and your exclusion is definitely not personal. It is just a time thing! With that being said, it is time to check out our July Dividend Income summary from all of YOU in the dividend growth investing community.
November 2012 marked a big change in my life . During that month, I lost my “dumb phone” on a flight to St. Louis (still haven’t figured out how I managed to do that) and upgraded to my first smartphone. For the longest time, I fought off the smartphone craze, saying things like “I don’t need it,” “I can live just fine without having the internet at my fingertips,” and “I don’t want to be one of those people addicted to their phones.” Well, after I left the airport and realized I didn’t have my phone in my pocket, that change I had been fighting for so long was forced upon me. Fast forward to summer 2016 and I was forced back into the “dark ages” for a week….I had to turn my data off! The good news here is that I am still alive to tell you all about it and I learned a lot about our addiction to data during these “troubling” times. I wanted to share this experience with you all, but please note the references to “struggling” or “tough times” or any other dramatic phrase have a major sarcastic undertone to it!
Surprising title and article, right? I would be stunned to see a watch list, as well, if I were a reader, given the stock market has continued to hit highs. Just went you think they are heading for a few days in a row of red, the rug gets taken from underneath you. Bert and I have had endless conversations over the last week and it’s time to talk about what entities are on my radar. What companies are out there, that somehow have undervaluation written somewhere on them? Let’s dive in and see.
We all want to make money, and it’s even more fun to make money on the side. Have you ever considered side hustles at home? Ever look around each room and ask yourself, do I still use, need or know what “that” is even for? How many of us have old phones, computers, TVs, clothes that are bursting out of the seems of the walls, within the place we live? This article drives to talk about how create side hustles at home and enjoy the benefits. Benefits, such as, the way to clear out the clutter and put extra capital in our pockets.
After coming off the highs of our June dividend income summary, we now get to report on the lowly first month of the quarter now that July has come to a close. Last month, I was able to post a 56% annual growth rate, and a lot of that had to do with the purchases I had in the first half of the year. Some how, some way, all those purchases seemed to pay a dividend in the third month of the quarter! I’m not expecting those kind of results here, so let’s see how I performed during the month and if I was able to defeat Lanny’s dividend growth rate during July. Here is my July dividend income summary!
