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.
Who else is ready for the final push of the year on the dividend stock investing front? Even though time is going by fast, we still need to take time and analyze how performance has been on the dividend income front. Without analyzing the pure numbers, how can one improve? The leaves are falling fast, weather is dropping, the heat is on in the house and my dividend stock portfolio is warming up right along with it. If only I can be financial independent with my dividend income right about now, would be icing on the cake. Let’s check out my October 2017 dividend income total!
The calendar has flipped once again. You know what time that is…..time to summarize our monthly dividend income totals! To me, nothing is better than compiled your results for the month and seeing the growth realized in a short 12 month period. October came and went with a blink of an eye and it still blows my mind that 2018 is on the horizon. Before I start looking too far ahead, let’s take a look and review my October divided income totals.
Another month, another installment of our monthly series highlighting one of our favorite aspects about dividend investing….DIVIDEND INCREASES! For those of you that are new to our website, each month we aggregate a listing of companies that are expected to increase their dividend in the coming months. Lanny and I are ALWAYS monitoring potential dividend increases in stocks we either own are on our watch list, so we thought it might be helpful to other dividend investors as well. Let’s see which companies are expected to announce a dividend increase in November!
The dividend growth community and personal finance online communities are unlike any other community out there. We support each other, share our advice, help each other through difficult decisions with major implications, and encourage each other to be the best we can be and improve our lives each and every day. Each month, the two of us summarize and aggregate as many stories and dividend income stories as we can into a monthly summary to show the progress that each of us are making. Each story is unique and we are all at different stops along our journey towards financial freedom, and that’s what we love best. Now it is time to check out our September dividend income summary from YOU the bloggers.
There is nothing like having a discussion about stocks and having one that the two of us hang up our phone, fire up our laptops, and begin intensely researching. Today, we both discussed a consumer staple stock with a brand portfolio that is matched by few. In our quest for finding undervalued dividend growth stocks, we wanted to take a deeper look at Newell Brands, Inc. (NWL) today and run the company through the Dividend Diplomats’ stock screener.
Is it just me or is 2017 flying by?? I cannot believe that the third quarter came to a close! This third quarter was an exciting one for my wife and I and I think we spent nearly every free minute we had together fixing our new house, painting walls, packing (and then unpacking), and finally settling into our first home. It was a stressful process for sure, but man I am excited that it is over. I’ve been looking forward to reporting my dividend income for September because let’s be honest, who doesn’t like reporting their income in the final month of a quarter when their mutual funds pay dividends? Now it is time to check out my September dividend income report. Continue reading
