Bert’s October Dividend Stock Watch List

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.

Lanny’s July Dividend Income Summary

The hot summer month of July is officially in the books and it’s that time of the month to share the dividend income totals!  Not to keep rubbing it in – but I wonder the Cavs championship and the recent RNC in Cleveland has kept the steam in this engine running, or maybe it is cold hard capital that is keeping the train moving like the locomotive it is.  Either which way – another month is finished, another month towards the goals and another month towards financial freedom.  Without further-ado, let’s see how the month turned out – dividend income wise.

Lanny’s May Dividend Income Summary

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!
