May is off and running. The market has had some very hot and very cold days. It looks like there may be some more buying opportunities on the horizon (finally). Before I get too excited looking ahead, let’s look back at April and see how dividend income I received. Lanny kicked this off on our website in style, absolutely CRUSHING April by posting a 40%+ growth rate. He is always a tough act to follow. But I will do my best. Here is my April Dividend Income Summary!
We know what time it is. This is one of the best months to be a dividend investor, as we wrap up a quarter-end. The market finished off an impressive note, closing up 13% for the year, thus far. The weather is finally warming up, as I believe we reached 60 degrees one day or two in the month. This was a fantastic month of investing and earning dividends, which truly shows the power of time and consistency pushes you forward.
This month, let’s ignore the fluff and get right into it. For those of you that are new, each month we discuss companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase before the calendar flips again. We also summarize the previous month’s results.

Can you smell it? Yes, it’s earnings release seasons! The time period where stocks can shake, rattle and roll with their prices on a daily basis. Therefore, she made a dividend stock purchase for her account and we also made one for my portfolio. It is time to dive in and see what move I made!
Exciting times everyone. The stock market was up in April with a plethora of Dividend Stock Increases. However, the month of May has showed promise for undervalued dividend stocks, as always. The weather in Ohio cannot make up it’s mind. I literally have seen a notification say something on my phone, that baffles me. One evening, the weather notification stated, “It will be 33 degrees warmer tomorrow”. I’ll take the heat, but hate the swings! Sounds like the rollercoaster of the stock market, right? Time to check out my dividend stock watch list.
This has been a roller coaster year! There is one other thing I have been hiding from the community. But we will save that for another post. Today, I wanted to talk about an unbelievable, amazing event that has changed my life completely over the last month. In March, the Diplomat family became a little larger. It is time to meet Baby Diplomat!
