Whoo! Here we go! The Cavs just clinched the Eastern Conference and are going to The Finals – beginning June 2nd, two of my best friends were married this month and I’m excited to see what opportunities lie ahead going into the last 7 months of the year. The market has been essentially slightly up since the end of May, but not by much – however, we still do have Tuesday, May 31st to make a statement (I’d be happy with a 5% stock shock downwards… haha). With that – let’s check out what dividends were received in this month of May 2016!
1/3 of the way finished with the year. Only 8 more months to go, NBA playoff basketball is going wild right now and I just returned from a vacation and am about to depart to be in one of my best friends wedding this afternoon. April was a wild month to push through, but something tells me – I haven’t seen anything yet. However, enough of hearing me talk about the past and what’s to come, let’s get into the real deal April dividend income summary!
Happy Sunday everyone. The weather has been beautiful here in Cleveland and August could not have started off any better. It has been a great weekend in the dividend investing community as well and we have spent some time reading a lot of great articles this weekend. It is an infrequent occurrence here on our website, but we wanted to take some time and put together a brief list of some of the articles we thought were great reads. Let’s take a look at our Weekend Reading list, the Sunday Night edition!
We are in the heat of summer, which means it’s time to cool down, take a deep breath and see what fruit the month has grown for us in terms of dividend income! Not usually the biggest month of dividends, but there were a few “big” things going on this month that led this to an extremely awesome and record-breaking month of income, one that is going to be very, very hard to beat! Well, enough of the mysterious writing about what happened in this monster month of receiving dividend income – let’s go and take a look at the dollars!
As it turns out I was not able to sit on the sidelines too long after my purchase of Emerson Electric last week. On Friday I was paid, which means I had $400 readily available to invest since I have a portion of my paycheck automatically deposited into the checking account linked to Sharebuilder. I have been watching a lot of stocks over the last month or so as a result of the Greece turmoil and the general pullback in the market that recently occurred, which has caused a lot of great dividend growth stocks to become discounted. I purchased one of the stocks on these watch lists, the question is…which stock was it?
The month of July has been a very unusually favorable month – especially if you have capital! We have seen the market go up and down, similar to last month, except this week, recently, the market has been on a bigger slide, opening up, of course, great dividend stock buying opportunities. Given the new opportunities unfolding in front of our eyes, it of course leaves us to really pin point down to which stocks are we really looking to purchase into. Lets see what is on our July watch list!
