Hopefully your stomach has been able to endure the extreme volatility, as of late. April was a fairly positive month on the valuation front, but there are always stock opportunities. Let’s buckle up and read Lanny’s Dividend Stock Watch List – June Edition.
March was the most interesting month, in quite some time, to say the least. We witnessed many down and up days of over 5%. As I am typing this, the market has had their best 4 day run since 1974, literally 46 years ago. This just goes to show you how low the market hit and even with this, the market is still undervalued. Could this be a teaser upswing, to set us up for the next bear drop? Who knows. What I do know is that the dividend stock purchases continued through the month of March!
Here we are, sitting a few months into the calendar year and investment opportunities are difficult to come by. However, we are all living and breathing, right? We are all drinking water, eating food and have items in our life to reduce risk of loss, correct? Have you considered that if all else fails and dividend stock opportunities are tough to come by, to invest into an industry that will be around, as long as we are simply, living? That’s the focus of my article today. I really want to get down to basics of what one could invest in if you are afraid of the next pop, the fizzle out of the latest start-up tech company or fall of a once-was retail giant?
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!
