I cannot believe that we have another month in the book! Where the heck is time going? Baseball season is coming and life is flying fast at me. All great stuff though. This month’s article even features a new image! Finally, I decided to do away with the old “Dividend Income” image and get creative. Lanny updated his last year, so it was time for me to as well. My wife and I were playing Scrabble and then I had this idea for the article. But back to business, I’m starting to ramble. At the beginning of the month, we each post our dividend income summaries to track and monitor our progress. Lanny recently released his March dividend income summary and produced absolutely insane numbers. I’ll let you see them for yourself. But all I have to say is DAMN LANNY! It is my turn now. Here is my March dividend income summary!
We know what time it is. This is one of the best months to be a dividend investor, as we wrap up a quarter-end. The market finished off an impressive note, closing up 13% for the year, thus far. The weather is finally warming up, as I believe we even received a 60 degree day or two in the month. This was a fantastic month of investing and earning dividends, which truly shows the power of time and consistency pushes you forward.
Despite the fact that February is the coldest for many of us Midwesterners and Canadians, the dividends came in HOT! In February, the stock market continued its impressive hot streak, leaving us with many stocks with high valuations and shorter, and shorter, dividend stock watch lists. With the month well behind us and the articles released by the community, it is time for our favorite monthly post! We try to summarize the growth and progress towards FIRE for as many individuals as possible. Here is the February installment of our dividend income from YOU the bloggers series!
Wow. February was a blur for so many different reasons. With a blink of an eye, we find ourselves entering the third month of the year. While personally, things many have been fuzzy, our dividend income continues to roll in, along with the dividend increases. I swear, there was a new dividend increase announced every day in February! Lanny has kicked off our blog’s dividend income summaries and it will be tough to follow his $628 act. But I’ll give it a shot. Here is my February dividend income summary!
February, coming in hot! Or… still freaking cold. Dividends still come through to keep things exciting for the short month. The stock market has continued to be on a tear, making it hard for additional investment. I know I am preaching to the choir. Let’s see how I did and check out my February 2019 dividend income.
On most occasions, us Diplomats are on the same page with stock purchases. Since we are always sharing our thoughts, ideas, and analyses, chances are that if one Diplomat purchases a stock, there is a good chance the other one did as well. This happened when the two of us initiated a position in ABBV in the fourth quarter and it happened once again in January when ABBV’s price fell through the floor. Lanny wrote out his purchase of ABBV and WRK this week, and now it is my turn. Here is why I added to ABBV!
I’ll say it. I am ready for winter to be over. However, I’ll have to say something else. Collecting dividends NEVER gets old! This is what is keeping the warmth during January going, as we know how hard it is to step foot outside. Cannot wait for the sun to shine a little brighter, as we reflect on our dividend income from the FIRST month of 2019! Did we all start the year off with a bang? Let’s see how I did and check out my January 2019 dividend income.
