The month of May was absolutely WILD. You could not even tell what was going to happen each day, let alone each hour. Is the new saying – April Rises, brings May Surprises? It does this time around, that’s for sure. The trade tariff discussions, inverted yield curves, interest rate pressure & sensitivity, really have have created opportunities in the stock market. Therefore, as a dividend investor must do, I went on a slight dividend stock purchase spree!
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!
Another cold month, but I am not talking about the weather. I am talking about the dividend stock purchases that were made during the month of March. I sat on the bench and my portfolio became stiff, with limited moves being made. However, my wife and I did sit down and go through our portfolio in early March and made investment decisions, which felt great. 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!
What a crazy week this has been for me. Life comes at you fast sometimes and you have to be willing to absorb some punches and go with the flow. I couldn’t be happier with how things have shaken out this week and I can’t wait to eventually write about it all. Finally, with a few hours to concentrate, I wanted to share with you a couple of dividend stock purchases I made in March. Nothing crazy, but as always, we like to be fully transparent with the community. Plus, these names have been featured on our watch lists recently. Let’s check out the stocks that I purchased and added to my portfolio!
Talk about limited activity over here. Doesn’t help that it was a short month, but the month of February saw gains in the S&P 500 of 2.88%. Therefore, you had limited days to buy, a day off in the stock market and the overall market surged almost 3%! Yes, my activity was very low this month. So low, that I am beginning to even think the freezing temperatures we endured took an affect on my dividend stock purchasing! Let’s see what I was up to from February 2nd through March 1st!
I am happy to see the Polar Vortex didn’t take anyone down, I hope. We are a full month down and it was nice opening February up on a Friday, as I was able to squeak a purchase in on that day. What’s wild, though, is we have gone from devastating cold temperatures, to running outside in shorts a few days later. Thank you OHIO! Well, enough about the weather, it’s now time to check out my dividend stock purchases over the last two weeks of January and first day in February!
January has been off to an interesting start. Lanny has crushed it with his stock purchases over the last 30 days, adding some serious dividend income to his total. Me, not so much. I’ve been on the sidelines for a while now and talked about how frustrated that was making me in my last dividend income summary. Now, that’s no longer the case and I’ve finally made my first stock purchase of 2019. As the title suggests, I purchased shares of Dominion Energy recently and here are some of the main reasons why.
