Each and every month, Bert writes about the expected dividend increases, each and every month. I love those articles, as it completely HYPES me up for what’s to come. However, as a dividend investor, who reviews and watches the stock market it is extremely… difficult. Yes, difficult! I am in this mode, that I want to let everyone know what I go through during the month where I expected dividend increases, to see if you feel the same or to see what you do to help “ease” the anxiety!
Man oh man has October been exciting so far. Lanny and I started off the month strong by making several rounds of investments (Lanny’s summary article can be found here and mine can be found here). We were feeling pretty happy with our decisions. On top of it, I created a dividend stock watch list to prepare myself for another set of purchases. Then, well, we all know what happened. The market had a massive two-day sell-off. Many investors capitalized on the downturn and we have been seeing a lot of purchase articles featuring some great stocks. This may be one of those articles, as it reflects my purchases from right before and during the October sell-off. The splash isn’t as large as you might have thought and we are still being patient. But I did have the chance to purchase three different stocks last week. Here is a summary of my second round of purchases in October!
At the end of my September dividend income summary article, I mentioned that I was extremely motivated and excited to purchase some stocks in October. Shortly after, I put together a watch list identifying four dividend stocks that were on my radar. It did not take long for me to put some capital to work with some of the stocks on this watch list. When a stock price falls after you add it to your watch list, how could you say no? These purchases were small and frequent due to our free trade credits from Ally Investing, so there will be a few different stocks in this article. Here are the stocks I have been purchasing over the last couple of weeks!
The dividend stock purchases machine keeps rolling! Yes, this is yet another round of dividend stock purchases, covering my last two weeks of activity. I am going to start doing this now, from an article standpoint, as my dividend stock purchases are becoming more frequent, due to certain life events and brokerage changes. The stock market was more volatile the last two weeks, creating value on dividend stocks I own. Therefore, I made a few stock purchases over the last two weeks and let’s find out what I bought!
The end of 2018 is rapidly approaching. With only three months to-go, I am working hard to identify different investment opportunities. With some extra cash, I am ready to put my capital to work and increase my dividend income as much as possible before the end of the year. In this month’s edition of my dividend stock watch list, I identified four stocks that I will keep an eye on. Ironically, I actually own all four stocks on this watch list. And on top of it, each have a dividend yield greater than 3%. So a potential purchase may add quite the punch. With that in mind, let’s see which four companies made the cut for my October Dividend Stock Watch List!
Fall is in the air, postseason baseball is about to start for the Indians, the Browns won their first game since 2016, dividends continue to increase by large percentages, and we have officially entered the fourth quarter. Since it is a new month, you know what that means? It is time to summarize my dividend income from the previous month. Lanny kicked off the festivities by releasing his dividend income article and disclosing the fact he received over $1,700 in dividend income during the month. Incredible Lanny, just incredible. Congratulations! Now that I am nice and motivated, let’s check out the results. Here is my September dividend income summary,
