I’m sitting at my dining room table with a freshly brewed cup of coffee and the fall breeze blowing in. What a beautiful fall day here in Northeast Ohio. With a lot of the expenses associated with moving in and updating our house in the rear-view mirror, I’m finally starting to flip on the investing switch again and aggressively look for great opportunities to add to or establish new positions. I’m inspired by Lanny’s recent dividend income month where he covered over 100% of his monthly housing expenses with his dividend income. If I want F.I.R.E, I need to go get it. So today, I sat down and found four dividend stocks that I would like to watch over the next month. Let’s take a look at my October dividend stock watch list.
Recently, I’ve had an itch to purchase a stock and I was motivated as heck to scratch the itch. The motivation is coming from all directions. Whether it was from seeing my cash balance increase since I have been hoarding cash while preparing to move into our house, seeing impressive growth rates in our monthly dividend investing income summary from the community, and quite frankly, watching Lanny to continue to add to his portfolio and see his dividend income soar. We all motivate each other and push each other, and seeing all of you crush it has motivated to move some cash from my recent “hoard” to my investment account and add a company that is on my last watch list. I still have a long, long, way to go if I am going to catch Lanny. But heck, I have to start somewhere, right?? All, check out why I added to my stake in Cardinal Health, Inc. (CAH) the other day.
It is insane that I am already writing my January dividend income summary. Time flies by. It seems like just yesterday I was preparing my goals for the year and trying to map out my year. Now, we are already 1/12 of the way through executing my strategy and aiming for the fences. With one month in the books, I figured it is appropriate to review my January dividend income figures and compare the results to last year. So much can happen in 12 months and now, it is time to see the fruits of my labor. Let’s dive into the the results!
Happy Halloween everyone! The fourth quarter started out with a bang and we are closing in on the new year quickly. I still cannot believe we are closing in on 2017; hopefully it will be as exciting for all of us as it is setting up to be for Lanny. The end of the month is always the best because it allows us to reflect on the growth we experienced over the last 30 or so days. I love seeing what the two of us and the dividend investing community were able to earn without lifting a finger. Now, it is time to take a look at my October Dividend Income summary!
We are rounding third and heading home here. Considering the Cleveland Indians clinched the AL Central Division title this week, I figured a baseball reference to start the article off was pretty appropriate. Let’s see if they can capture some of the same postseason magic the Cavs had during their run in May/June. At the end of each quarter, Lanny and I review our annual goals to monitor our progress towards hitting these marks. If we are on pace…great. If we are off track, well there is still time to make some adjustments despite the fact there are only three months remaining. Time to dig and perform my third quarter goals review.
A few weeks ago, I ran a stock screener and published my August dividend stock watch list. That screener had a new entrant that seemed to check most of our boxes for investing, Cardinal Health (CAH). Headquartered in the buckeye state, I instantly had flashbacks to college recruiting events since they sponsored A LOT of events at college. The stock price continues to fall, so I wanted to perform a detailed analysis on Cardinal Health before committing to buy this healthcare company. Here it is, my dividend stock analysis over Cardinal Health!
Earlier in the week, I crossed a big investing milestone….crossing $3,000 in forward dividend income. It took me 15 months to jump from $2,000 to $3,000 and at the end of the article, I challenged myself to hit the next milestone in half the time. To get there, I better get moving quickly. What’s the best way to increase your dividend income? Not a trick question here, but purchase stock! I thought it would be a good idea to do some research this evening and put together a small watch list of stocks that have caught my eye. Here it is, my August stock watch list.
