Time is flying and life is moving at 1,000 miles per hour. It is RIDICULOUS to think that 2019 is almost halfway over. I guess that’s why we are pursuing financial freedom after all, right? To take back our time, slow things down, and enjoy every step along the way. And also reduce stress. We are all on this journey together! Which is why each month, we aggregate as many dividend income summary articles from around the community. So we can share, enjoy, and cheer on each individual journey. Here is the May 2019 version of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series!
Lanny said it best in his stock purchase article…the month of May was actually wild! Every day presented a new twist, turn, and market swing. I would transfer cash to my brokerage and get ready to make a purchase. Then boom, the market would swing upward. Despite the madness, the dividend income continued to flow. After all, that’s part of the beauty of dividend investing. Lanny published great dividend income results this month. As always, he is a tough act to follow. Especially when he announces a 48.8% YOY dividend increase. But I’ll give it my best shot. It is time to review my May Dividend Income summary!
Another month towards financial freedom. Can you taste it? I know I am starting to. However, though sweet the taste this is, it’ll be very “sweet” once the dividend income trumps all expenses in a given month. We are not quite there yet, but in time, this will happen. Proof has been in the pudding, as you’ve seen throughout the years of writing articles, and May is no different.
Summer time is here! Tariff news have been relentless lately and the stock market is behaving as expected. We are riding big hills up and we are experiencing deep dives down. Time to check out my dividend stock watch list.
Man the year is flying by! I can’t believe it is almost June and the fact that my daughter is now two months old! As you know, each month is an exciting new chapter in the story of dividend increases. And we summarize and discuss it here on our website. June is going to be a fun month, as there are a lot of names that are expected to announce an increase. Let’s start the process of reviewing and predicting the expected dividend increases in June!
The month has closed and how fast time flies. We are already more than a third into the 2019 calendar year. Time is precious and dividend investors know the power of compounding starts and ends with time. As time does pass, dividend checks don’t care what day it is, as the checks continue to flow in! Now, it is time for the April installment of our dividend income from YOU the bloggers series!
When talking about dividend increases, this is us talking about dividend investing, at it’s finest! Given the first quarter-end had recently passed, I wanted to reflect on what occurred over the last 3 months. This is not any old reflection, but specifically about dividend increases and their impact on my portfolio this year. Now that tax reform was 2018 news, how are the dividend increases stacking up this year?
