It’s getting colder here in Cleveland, currently 38 degrees as I’m typing this. As the weather has gotten colder, the stock market has chilled down a bit and has created a few opportunities for us dividend investors. I have not been as active the last few months as I’d like to be (as it relates to dividend stock purchases), but patience is a virtue in this game, that’s for damn sure! Sitting here on the cold Saturday morning, sipping my warm coffee, I wanted to write my thoughts on three dividend stocks that I am considering for a future purchase. Let’s grab another cup and check out the stocks!
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.
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.
