Wow. I had to take a second to stop when I typed the title of this article out. I cannot believe it is already 2019. Time continues to fly by and before I know it, I’ll be turning 30 in July. 2018 was such an incredible year for dividend investing and it was unique to watch from a investor’s perspective. We started with the incredible surprise dividend increases at the beginning of the year and ended with a turbulent market (to say the least). Lanny and I were talking about it, but I can’t remember the last time there were so many wild swings on daily basis. But as always, we are prepared and ready to take a methodological approach to investing. I’m starting to ramble, so let’s get back to the task at hand. Each month, we do our best to highlight as many companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase that month. Since we love dividend increases and follow them so closely, we love trying to share the news with you! Here is our listing of expected dividend increases in January 2019!
The holiday spirit is in the air and we are closing in on the end of 2018. With Lanny serving a healthy dose of inspiration by sharing with all of us that he crushed a major dividend investing milestone ($12,000 in annual dividend income, aka $1,000/month), I’m as motivated as ever to continue investing as much capital as possible into income producing assets. So today, I sat down and put together my initial December dividend stock watch list. There are a handful of companies on this listing, so lets dive right in!
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!
