Bert’s December Dividend Stock Watch List

I cannot believe I am about to say this, but here it goes.  For the FINAL time in 2017, I am going to take a deep dive and prepare a watch list full of dividend stocks that are on my radar because they are potentially undervalued.  This market is as expensive as ever and the S&P 500 continues to soar to new highs.  So finding great dividend stocks that are currently trading at a discount was definitely a challenge.   However, I was able to find three stocks that have caught my attention.  Let’s dive in and take a look at the final 2017 edition of my dividend stock watch list!

Expected Dividend Increases – December 2017

I cannot believe that I am writing this post for the final month in 2017.  So many great things have happened in 2017 and I cannot wait to see what 2018 has in store for all of us.  As investors, we have received some great (and some poor) dividend increases during the year.   For the last time in 2017, I have compiled a list of dividend paying companies that are expected to announced dividend increases in December.  Lanny and I spend so much time monitoring dividend announcements for a ton of companies, so we like to share some our research with all of you.  This list isn’t all-inclusive, that would be impossible; but it includes the majority of the companies that we will be monitoring closely over the next 31 days.   Now the fun begins. Let’s dive in and see which companies are expected to increase their dividend in December.

Dividend Diplomats’ Recent Buy – AT&T (T)

We weren’t kidding with our dividend stock watch lists posted earlier this month, expected dividend increases and even tweeting about how the market is opening up opportunities.  It is always exciting  when dividend aristocrats go on sale and one has capital to deploy.  Due to the frugal lifestyle that Bert & I live, we were able to strike when the stock market took a few steps back.  The end of October & early November has opened up quite a few opportunities in the dividend investing arena and what do Dividend Diplomats do best?  You called it, brother, dividend investing of course!  Let’s dive in to see our recent purchase that we both ended up buying for our respective dividend stock portfolios!

Bert’s July Dividend Income Summary

2017 is flying by.  I barely know what hit me for work here in July.  Between travelling for work and gaining possession of our house, I have barely had time to sit down, relax, and focus on things.  But I must say, I couldn’t be happier doing some of the house work and I am finding it fun and therapeutic (especially when I am listening to music while painting).  Before I knew it, July was over and it was time for me to recap my performance and write my July dividend income summary.  Let’s see how I performed during the month.

Expected Dividend Increases in July 2017

After taking a month off from the series in June (unintentionally of course)…I’m back!  Each month, I like to summarize which Dividend Aristocrats are expected to increase their dividend in the coming month.  As die-hard dividend growth investors, the two of us take great joy in closely monitoring and tracking the changes in our dividend income and dividend payments of the companies we own and companies that we are watching closely.  Typically, July is a slower month than June, but there are still some great companies that are expected to reward their shareholders.
