What a crazy week this has been for me. Life comes at you fast sometimes and you have to be willing to absorb some punches and go with the flow. I couldn’t be happier with how things have shaken out this week and I can’t wait to eventually write about it all. Finally, with a few hours to concentrate, I wanted to share with you a couple of dividend stock purchases I made in March. Nothing crazy, but as always, we like to be fully transparent with the community. Plus, these names have been featured on our watch lists recently. Let’s check out the stocks that I purchased and added to my portfolio!
I believe it is rally time for the dividend portfolio! The weather is warming up and the appetite is getting anxious to scoop up dividend stocks for the cupboard, that is my portfolio. The goals are high and the dividend income forward projection is begging to be pushed, just a little bit further. I say bring on April and let’s see what’s currently on the radar!
The final month of the quarter is flying by. Where has time gone? With just under half of the month left, I wanted to follow Lanny’s lead and prepare a March Dividend Stock watch list myself. Fresh off of my recent portfolio review, I am ready to continue pushing forward and grow our portfolio. This listing will have three stocks on it. Let’s dive into my March dividend stock watch list.
Talk about limited activity over here. Doesn’t help that it was a short month, but the month of February saw gains in the S&P 500 of 2.88%. Therefore, you had limited days to buy, a day off in the stock market and the overall market surged almost 3%! Yes, my activity was very low this month. So low, that I am beginning to even think the freezing temperatures we endured took an affect on my dividend stock purchasing! Let’s see what I was up to from February 2nd through March 1st!
I cannot believe that I am writing this post for the final month in 2017. So many great things have happened in 2017 and I cannot wait to see what 2018 has in store for all of us. As investors, we have received some great (and some poor) dividend increases during the year. For the last time in 2017, I have compiled a list of dividend paying companies that are expected to announced dividend increases in December. Lanny and I spend so much time monitoring dividend announcements for a ton of companies, so we like to share some our research with all of you. This list isn’t all-inclusive, that would be impossible; but it includes the majority of the companies that we will be monitoring closely over the next 31 days. Now the fun begins. Let’s dive in and see which companies are expected to increase their dividend in December.
Hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday and were able to take a moment to enjoy everything that we have in our lives. Loves ones, friends, family, dividend stock portfolios, you name it – we need to be thankful. Now that November is finished and my body is heavy from eating, it’s time to digest the November Dividend Income results! Let’s check it out!
