Lanny said it best in his dividend income summary. The coronavirus has dominated everything lately, as it has taken our world and shaken it upside down. Everyone is learning to adjust to the new, short-term reality, including individuals and businesses. For me personally, I have cherished the opportunity to spend every day with my daughter, as I have worked at home exclusively. I’ve truly grown to appreciate seeing all the little things and seeing how much she grows and learns each day. This is a feeling that has just made me hungrier, and hungrier, for financial freedom. And while all of this madness has been going on, the dividends have continued to quietly roll in. Let’s take a look at my March dividend income summary!
My oh my. What a difference a month makes. In last month’s article, we discussed how dividend growth slowed and there may be an economic slowdown. This month, it is a completely different story. The coronavirus, COVID-19, pandemic has spread and the economic impact has been unlike anything I have ever seen. The impact on individuals, small business and corporations is changing on a daily basis. For many companies, they are rethinking their 2020 strategic visions and changing their dividends & capital strategies on the fly. It will be tough to predict the expected dividend increases in 2020; however, we will highlight the companies that have historically announced dividend increases in April.
Each month, we summarize the dividend increases from the previous month and highlight the expected dividend increases in the coming month! February had a lot of dividend increases, which was a blast to follow. Things will slow down in March before ramping up again. One thing I would like to note is that I made some formatting changes this month compared to last months. I’ll discuss the changes in each section; however, each change was made to hopefully bring more valuable information to YOU while reading. I’m excited for your feedback. Here are the expected dividend increases in March!
Man, I can’t believe that we are already one and a half months through 2020. Time continues to fly by at an amazing clip. Soon, my daughter will be one and I’ll be reminiscing about all of her amazing milestones from her first year. I will say this, she loves to babble and crawl. I’m in store for an exciting, action packed year at this rate! Each month, we take time to reflect on the previous month’s results and monitor our progress as we pursue financial freedom. This article will contain my January dividend income summary and discuss any major portfolio updates.
The first month is officially in the book. Lanny kicked off our round of purchase summaries by showing how he invested over $9,000 in the stock market in January! Amazing Lanny, just amazing. While we didn’t add anywhere close to that, we were able to move a little cash off the sidelines and into the market. Here are our January dividend stock purchases!
