Earnings season has been upon us for this past quarter and wow, things are starting to move, shake, drop, pop and roll. On April 19th, things were no different. After seeing quite a few stocks that are strong dividend players drop, one company caught our eye. I messaged Bert saying, “Alert, PG DROP!”. The rest was history. We both ended up purchasing additional positions into Procter & Gamble (PG)!
Where is time going? 3 months have already gone by in 2018 and the year’s madness continues. January and February were exciting months for investors and as it turns out, March wasn’t much different. Many great companies were suddenly trading at a discount and the dividend investing community jumped all over the buying opportunities! Now that the month is over and most of us have published our March dividend income reports, it is time for the next installment in our monthly income from the blogging community series! We will try to include as many of you as we can, but please don’t take it personally if you were not included this month! Now, let’s dive right in and see just how well the community performed in March!
Now that the first quarter is behind us, it’s time to check in on where I currently am at with my dividend portfolio. I want to share the current state of my dividend portfolio, related to market value, forward-looking dividends, yield and yield on cost. Additionally, I’ll describe the activities; such as, contributions, dividends received to date and the like. I thought this may give a great snapshot of where I currently am, the progress into this year and if I like the trajectory for the year. Time to check out the state of my portfolio!
You read that tile right! I may have accidentally purchased a dividend stock last week. Long-story short, on Tuesday, April 10th, a trade went through that relates to my lack of paying attention to my own account set-up strategies. Not only did the purchase go through, it happened to be on a day that the market was doing well, so it wasn’t even a timely purchase at all, either! I ended up purchasing $606.00 worth of Citizens & Northern (CZNC) on Tuesday, April 10th. Let’s see the summary below.
Busy season is finally just about over for the Dividend Diplomats! Through the insane work weeks and the Cleveland Cold that ensues, do you think we were able to keep the side hustles going? You better believe we never stop side hustling and trying to earn every extra dollar possible and MAKE EVERY DOLLAR COUNT. It was a solid month overall, but we are looking forward to April Side Hustlin’ money showers! Now, let’s see how we did in March! Continue reading
Last week, with a volatile stock market, I decided to jump right back into the action. All of us have been watching this market closely and getting excited about the opportunities that have started to present themselves. I had some extra cash on hand and wanted to add to several positions in my portfolio. After some research, my investment decisions were made and I found the two stocks I wanted to purchase. Here is why I purchased shares of Procter and Gamble (PG) and Starbucks (SBUX) last week.
Wow. What a month it has been. My busy season came to a roaring close, there were an insane number of March Madness upsets, and my personal favorite, baseball season is back! One of my favorite activities each month is sitting down with a nice beverage and aggregating my final dividend results for the month. I tally the results throughout the month, but there is something exciting about finalizing my totals and seeing the final amount of dividend income received and calculating my year over year growth rate. Since this is March, aka the final month of the quarter, this is a very fun activity! Let’s see how I performed this month. Here is my March dividend income summary.
