Winter is here. I’ll tell you what, we are tired of shoveling snow and the frigid cold temperatures here in Cleveland. But even while it is cold, the dividends and dividend increases continue to heat up! Sorry for the bad play on words, couldn’t resist it right there. With a new month looming, it is time for the next installment of our monthly series projecting all the Dividend Aristocrats and dividend growth stocks that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month. Here is the February 2019 edition of the Expected Dividend Increases series!
The stock market really has slid, as of late, which is beautiful to a dividend investor. Not only are companies announcing larger dividend increases, due to the savings from the “Tax Act”, but they are also starting to go “on-sale”. Due to these events, I wanted to write my dividend stock watch list for the month of February. I am entering the grocery store here with an empty cart, seeing what stocks are ripe enough to go through the check-out line with me. Time to get to the stocks, so grab a cup of coffee and come read.
What a month it has been for dividend increases! Each month, I highlight the companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month. For the first time, I am speechless. In January, I highlighted three companies that were expected to increase their dividend in the coming month. But man was I blown out of the water with all of the dividend increases that were announced. February will have some tough shoes to follow! Enough talk, let’s dive right in and summarize the companies that increased their dividend in January and which companies are expected to announce a dividend increase in February.
I cannot believe I am about to say this, but here it goes. For the FINAL time in 2017, I am going to take a deep dive and prepare a watch list full of dividend stocks that are on my radar because they are potentially undervalued. This market is as expensive as ever and the S&P 500 continues to soar to new highs. So finding great dividend stocks that are currently trading at a discount was definitely a challenge. However, I was able to find three stocks that have caught my attention. Let’s dive in and take a look at the final 2017 edition of my dividend stock watch list!
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are looming folks. While others will spend hours upon hours waiting in line to capture those “Doorbusters,” I’ll be engaging in a different form of shopping. Shopping for dividend growth stocks! Each month, Lanny and I will put together a short list of stocks that have caught our attention and are strong contenders to be purchased when the timing is right. I’m hungry to add some forward dividend income to my portfolio this week, so let’s dive right in and see which stocks are on my November dividend stock watch list.
After seeing such incredible numbers posted in our latest edition of our monthly dividend income summary from other bloggers in the dividend growth investing community, I am extremely motivated to invest some extra capital and help push my dividend income forward. Even though I am working hard to earn extra cash via side hustles to try to pay down our debt as fast as possible, I decided that there was a little room to still invest on the side. How could I resist buying a potentially undervalued dividend growth stock after all? This month, I’ve targeted four companies for my September stock watch list. Let’s see who I am keeping my eye on!
Quarter 1 of 2016 is officially in the books, which means a quarter end month of dividend income has occurred! The reason why I specifically mention the quarter-end, as this is typically a larger than normal month for dividend income, as there are substantially more payers in the U.S. that pay on those specific months as opposed to others. This also marks my fifth busy season as an auditor being completed and I can wake up on Saturday not feeling like I need to be working for the firm, feels nice. This is also one of the exciting time periods where we will read on individuals breaking their record for dividend income for the month! All great news here. Without any more introduction, let’s take a look at what Dividend Income was received for March 2016!
