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!
Who doesn’t love an enjoyable experience when flying? I know I do. However, enjoying a flight is a rarity these days, especially when top airliners are making their own “headliners” from ripping people off planes, arresting them or the customer service is of the worst quality. Personally, when I think of the most enjoyable experience that I’ve had from terminal, to boarding, to getting off the plane, I can only think of one airline. That airline is Delta and I happened to purchase their stock last week.
Tough month for Clevelandars with our Finals loss to the Golden State Warriors in June. It’s okay, another year to plan and strive for the trophy. Our Cleveland Indians are playing some pretty damn good baseball and the perfect summer weather of low 70s and sun has started to peek through, as we recently had muggy/humid 80 degree weather. Amazon (AMZ) has purchased Whole Foods Market (WFM) and stocks are showing a few signs or better signs of opportunities based on valuation metrics. I wanted to share my July dividend stock watch list and to see if they happen to be on yours as well. Now, onto the stocks!
The buying spree continues here on our website. What makes this one more fun, and we haven’t done this in a long time, is that the two of us purchased the same stock within minutes of each other. Lanny has been the most active of late and recently purchased shares in Cisco. Bert on the other hand, has been mostly on the sidelines since him and his wife purchased their first house. Last week though, we saw an opportunity that was too good to pass up and pounced. See why we each purchased shares of Kroger (KO) during their recent slide.
Back in business baby! Cavs game 5 is tonight and I’m hyped up to write my dividend stock watch list for June. Hungry to purchase some stock and add to my forward income. As we all know – increasing that, helps us get to financial freedom, undoubtedly. The summer heat is coming on and it’s time to spark a fire for my dividend pumping portfolio. Now onto the stocks!
Here we go! Another fun loving dividend stock analysis, because that’s what Dividend Diplomats do! Today’s analysis will be over Delta Air Lines, Inc. (DAL) and the fun-loving, high above the clouds – airline industry. Let’s hop on the flight, take our seat and see what Delta and the airline industry has in store for us dividend investors!
Closing out the April month on a high note! I have deployed more capital into a dividend aristocrat, as the stock price was falling down, a dividend increase was coming up and the timing was too tempting for me to sit on the sidelines. This marks the 5th individual stock purchase this year and the second in April alone. Feels great being in the driver’s seat, in my own lane on the highway to financial freedom! Come check out the purchase of W. W. Grainger, Inc. (GWW)!
