Man oh man has the fourth quarter started off with a bang! Mr. Market has been pretty volatile and the interest rate environment continues to rise. Plenty of bloggers took advantage of the recent swings and added nice chunks of change to their forward dividend income totals. We definitely did. But before we look too far ahead in the future, it is time for one of our favorite monthly articles to compile. Why? Because our inspiration to hustle, grind, and keep pushing towards financial freedom stems from all of you in the blogging community. That’s what makes this community so special. For those of you that are not familiar, each month, each month, we gather as many dividend income summaries from the community to share the results with all of you. Here is the September installment of our dividend income from YOU the bloggers series!
The calendar turns and I am ready to put some extra capital to work. Over the last month, I have been busy initiating positions in Tyson, WestRock, and Illinois Tool Works. The market has been interesting over the last few weeks. There haven’t been too many buying opportunities out there, at least compared to the previous months. Still, I run a stock screener each week (sometimes daily) to see what opportunities may be out there. It has been a while since I have published my dividend stock watch list. I figured this was a perfect month to do so. Here is my September Dividend Stock Watch List!
2018 continues to fly by and we are nearing the halfway mark already. Man oh man, where has time gone? Now that another month is in the books, we get to embark on one of our favorite activities each month…reading blogger’s monthly dividend income summaries! Why? We both are extremely motivated by the hustle, hard work, and amazing results exhibited by so many in the dividend growth community. Thus, each month, we aggregate as many dividend income summaries from the community as we can into one article so we can share the results with all of you. Here is the May installment of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series!
We are swiftly approaching the halfway mark for 2018. Man oh man, where has time gone? Lanny, like so many of you already, published his May Dividend Income report and crushed it. He earned almost $500 in dividend income and posted a 30% dividend increase! Nice freaking job Lanny. That’s how you crush it right there. I’ve spent some time compiling my results here. Let’s see if my May dividend income summary was as strong as Lanny’s!
Is there anything sweeter than opening up your laptop after a hard day’s work, checking your dividend portfolio, and then realizing that one of your holdings increased their dividend that day? It is such a sweet/satisfying feeling, one that Lanny and I cannot get enough of. We’ve constantly calling and texting each other the minute we find out that our forward dividend increased without lifting a finger! Each month, we try to identify as many companies as we can that are expected to announce an increased dividend in the coming month so we can hopefully share our excitement with some of you! Let’s see which companies are expected to announce dividend increases in May!
Earnings season has been upon us for this past quarter and wow, things are starting to move, shake, drop, pop and roll. On April 19th, things were no different. After seeing quite a few stocks that are strong dividend players drop, one company caught our eye. I messaged Bert saying, “Alert, PG DROP!”. The rest was history. We both ended up purchasing additional positions into Procter & Gamble (PG)!
Where is time going? 3 months have already gone by in 2018 and the year’s madness continues. January and February were exciting months for investors and as it turns out, March wasn’t much different. Many great companies were suddenly trading at a discount and the dividend investing community jumped all over the buying opportunities! Now that the month is over and most of us have published our March dividend income reports, it is time for the next installment in our monthly income from the blogging community series! We will try to include as many of you as we can, but please don’t take it personally if you were not included this month! Now, let’s dive right in and see just how well the community performed in March!
