Should I Sell Schlumberger (SLB)?

This morning, I was updating my portfolio sipping on a nice, warm cup of coffee updating my portfolio with all the madness/dividend income that has trickled in so far in March.  There is a reason why the third quarter of the month is everyone’s favorite dividend month, right?   After re-reading Lanny’s article about updating you portfolio’s P/E Ratio on a regular basis, I became inspired to review one of the stocks that I have considered selling for a while now.  I’ve been debating if the stock still fits the characteristics I look for in a dividend growth stock, so I thought today would be a perfect day to re-run Schlumberger (SLB) through the Dividend Diplomats Stock Screener and see if action is necessary.

Bert’s January Dividend Stock Watch List

With the first month of 2017 coming to a close, I thought it would be a good idea to put a dividend stock watch list together to focus in on a few companies that have caught my eye recently.  What’s crazy is that each day brings an exciting new day to the market and it seems like we have snapped out of our two month streak of constant appreciation and are finally starting to see some great companies trading at a discount.  After my last purchase and Lanny’s recent portfolio review, I am as motivated as every to keep pushing capital into the marketplace and increase my passive income as much as possible.  Now lets take a look at my January Dividend Stock Watch List!
