March is a great month. Spring training is starting, the weather is starting to warm up, it is the first large dividend paying month of the year, and it is one of the Diplomats’ birthdays. From an investing stand point and dividend increase standpoint, 2019 has been an interesting one. Dividend growth has slowed compared to last year for many companies while the stock market continues to rally. Each day is an exciting new day in the marketplace. It is now time for the next installment of our monthly series summarizing the previous month’s dividend increases and anticipating the dividend increases in the months to come. Here is our list of expected dividend increases in March!
I’m writing this article in the final minutes of the Super Bowl. This wasn’t the most exciting game to watch and there was a lot less scoring than anticipated. It was nice to receive a dividend from the official halftime show sponsor, Pepsi, this month. Luckily, even though the game wasn’t too exciting, that wasn’t the case with our January dividend income summaries. Lanny kicked off our site’s dividend income summaries with an impressive $777 dividend haul. Incredible results Lanny! How lucky of a number is that by the way?? It is a tough mark to beat, but here is the question, could I possibly have topped him this month?
Ah, the best month for being a Dividend Investor. Most companies pay on a quarterly basis in the third month of the quarter and for those that have mutual fund/ETF investments, the dividends and capital gains pour in at the end of the year.

Here is the December version of the dividend income from YOU the bloggers!
When talking about dividend increases, this is us talking about dividend investing, at it’s finest! Given another quarter-end had recently passed, I wanted to reflect on what occurred over the last full-year. I do not mean just any old reflection, but I am going to be specifically talking about dividend increases and their impact on my portfolio this year. Tax reform has been rewarding, as companies have been sending portions of the cost savings to their shareholders.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The winter is upon us and the holiday season is right around the corner. It is time to bust out the Christmas Trees, decorations, menorahs, and whatever else you and your families use to celebrate the holidays. I know our house is ready to go! On top of it, it is officially the most exciting dividend month of the year…December! But before I jump ahead, now that it is a new month, it is time to summarize the results from the previous month. Here is my November Dividend Income summary!
Thanksgiving is over, the first major snow has hit our hometown, and lookout, our Cleveland Browns have finally won back-to-back football games! Now that the calendar is set to turn and we enter the most exciting dividend month of the year, you know what that means?

Like Lanny, as he noted in his November purchase article, this has been a relatively quiet month from a purchasing perspective. After a crazy October that saw wild swings in the market and a lot of small purchases, November was calmer as many companies rebounded from that rough October.
