May is over. Boy did the stock market end with a bang! States are easing their lockdown restrictions and the economy is starting to open again. Already, the stock market is trading at their pre-pandemic levels. The impact of the reopening will be fascinating to follow over the next couple of months. When each month closes, we each type up our respective dividend income summaries to share our results, progress, and most importantly, hold ourselves accountable. My dividend income summary this month had some positive news. However, my dividend income was also plagued by some nasty dividend cuts. Let’s take a look at the detailed results.
Dividend increases are the name of the game. We love them, we monitor them, and are constantly watching each stock in our portfolio and watchlist for news about them. Why? The impact of increases on your dividend income streak is real and is pivotal for your journey to financial freedom. It only makes sense that each month, we write about the expected dividend increases and review the actual announcements from the last month.

How did I perform compared to November 2015 and was I able to achieve a higher year over year dividend growth rate compared to Lanny? Time to find out!
Here we go, here we go. All, you know what this is about. At the end of each month, we round-up as many dividend income summaries as we can and compile the results in an article. We love reviewing everyones’ progress. It is truly inspiring and it helps motivate us to continue pushing ourselves. Time to check out how well everyone performed in April. Let’s dive into our April dividend income summary from all of you in the Dividend Investing community!
