Wow! We are finished with half the year already! The sun is bright, shining and…hotter than heck! In fact, the temperature reads 95 degrees tonight and I am loving it. There were a great deal of positive events in June, that I am excited to write about, but earning dividend income just added to the fun of summer! Sadly, our Cavs were out of the Finals and the NBA free agency has been crazy already. However, this is about dividend income, so let’s get to the numbers!
Well, the market hasn’t laid on too many opportunities for us, but we still have stocks on our watch list. Nothing too crazy has happened, so this was very tough and easy at the same. Slow and study or keep it simple stupid or uhm… you get the drill. This isn’t anything wild but here is the March of 2016 stock watch list!
30 days everyone. It has been a long 30 days since I have purchased a stock. An investment. A bridge stone to financial freedom and it feels… well, there really isn’t one word for it. It is weird, fast and unusual, to say the least. As I sit and see the calendar continue to gain momentum towards, now, the end of March, I sit back and think, whoa, it’s been over 4 weeks since an investment move has been made. Why? Here is what I was able to come up with.
Needless to say, the stock market has been a “mean green” this past week and man, the buying opportunities are drying up and fast! It feels like it was just yesterday that we were battling low oil prices and other commodity fluctuations, that was ultimately causing the entire market to head south for the winter. Then, the curveball of the green machine of the stock market kept roaring this week and was breaking some ground – even with some of the major macro economic factors still in play. I can’t make much of it, but I do have a watch list of stocks that I have my eyes on. Come check them out!
October is here! World Series baseball is in full swing and we are counting down the months to the end of the year. Holidays are amongst us with Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. Now is the time we really start to make the final push towards our final goals, investing metrics and dividend goals. Now… to the numbers!
Another month down. Holy smokes, we are only two months away from 2016. Man oh man does time fly by. Kind of scary when you think about it. Now that October has come to an end, it is time to put together my monthly dividend income summary and dissect one of the best feelings out there…receiving a dividend for doing absolutely nothing. Without further ado, let’s review my October dividend income summary!
I can’t believe this, but there are only two months remaining in 2014. Holy cow has it been a great year. As October turns to November, we will once again review which companies we expect to announce dividend increases in November. For those of you who are new followers, each month we compile a list of Dividend Aristocrats that we anticipate will announce a dividend increase. Let’s review the results of our October dividend increases projections and take a look ahead to November!
