Happy New Year’s Dividend Investing Community! Wow, what a year it was. November’s dividend income from the bloggers totaled 50 bloggers with over $17,000 divvies coming in. The results were very impressive and the community has shown no signs of slowing down. However, with one month left and big dividend payers coming in the last month of the year – can we set new records? Did Santa bring gifts this year for the community? Time to grab the hot cup of coffee, get comfortable and read about the December dividend income results from YOU the bloggers!
After a record December, I was looking to start 2018 off on an aggressive note. I play to push my limits in 2018 and hopefully provide a lot of fuel to my investment portfolio. Despite the fact that the market has also started off on a tear, a few opportunities have presented themselves. After watching the price of REITs such as Realty Income and HCP (Lanny’s latest purchase) continue to fall, I knew that a purchase was inevitable. Let’s see why I added to my position in Realty Income!
December is THE BEST month to be a dividend growth investor. Not only is it the third month of the quarter the most popular month to pay a dividend, but December is also the month where mutual fund companies pay their capital gains distributions! Whoo. Lanny and I were refreshing Vanguard’s website hourly (okay, probably less frequent than that) since we were eagerly awaiting the results. For Lanny, the results WERE INSANE as he crossed $2,000 in dividend income for the first time ever. Lanny congratulations my man. Just incredible! While my portfolio is far behind his (one day I’ll catch you Lanny!), my December’s have historically been strong. If I ever had a chance to record a record level of dividend income and beat him this month, it would be in December. So now, let’s dive into the details and check out my December dividend income summary!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone! Hope everyone had a blast finishing off the year and are ready to set 2018 on fire! What better way to ensure to light this year up, than a record-setting month of Dividend Income? That is my case and point. I am beyond thrilled and excited to see the figures everyone is putting up, showcasing the blood, sweat & tears everyone has endured to this point.
After a strong end to 2017 it is time to usher in a new calendar year and a new set of goals. Whether you are racing to update our investment portfolios one final time in 2017 or too busy smiling as you update your dividend income summary for the amazing December dividend and capital gains distribution you received from your mutual fund holdings, there are a lot of great things to be excited about. One topic that always brings joy to the two of us…dividend increases. So each month, we try to summarize the companies that are expected to increase their dividend in the coming month. We are tracking this statistic like hawks, so we thought we would share our research with all of you. This isn’t an all-inclusive list, so please share any dividend increases you received last month or are expected to receive in the coming month with us in the comment section. Now, it is time to dive into the next edition of our monthly series. Here are the companies that we are expecting dividend increase from in January!
We are back at it again it again folks. Another month is in the books and you know what that means, right? Time for our favorite article of the month! Each month, we compile as many dividend income summary articles and stories as we can into one monthly summary so we can all share in this wonderful communities successes and motivate each other to keep on pushing it to the limit. Last month, the community crushed it and our summary showed that 44 bloggers received over $25,000 in dividend income. Insanity, right? So here is the million dollar question…could we do better in October? Let’s find out! Time to check out our October dividend income summary from YOU, the bloggers.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are looming folks. While others will spend hours upon hours waiting in line to capture those “Doorbusters,” I’ll be engaging in a different form of shopping. Shopping for dividend growth stocks! Each month, Lanny and I will put together a short list of stocks that have caught our attention and are strong contenders to be purchased when the timing is right. I’m hungry to add some forward dividend income to my portfolio this week, so let’s dive right in and see which stocks are on my November dividend stock watch list.
