When talking about dividend increases, this is us talking about dividend investing, at it’s finest! Given another quarter-end had recently passed, I wanted to reflect on what occurred over the last 9 months. I do not mean just any old reflection, but I am going to be specifically talking about dividend increases and their impact on my portfolio this year. Tax reform has been rewarding, as companies have been sending portions of the cost savings to their shareholders.
Fall is here, the leaves are changing colors, and we are closing in on the end of a pretty darn exciting month in the market. For the first time in a while, Mr. Market experienced wild swings and presented dividend growth investors with some pretty strong opportunities. The two of us have definitely taken advantage of a few of them, that’s for sure. With the turning calendar, comes the next installment in our “Expected Dividend Increases” series! For those of you that are new to the blog, each month we summarize a listing of companies that are expected to announce dividend increases in the coming month. Since we love following each company’s dividend increase closely, we thought we would share some of the excitement with you. Now, here are the companies expected to announce dividend increases in November!
Each and every month, Bert writes about the expected dividend increases, each and every month. I love those articles, as it completely HYPES me up for what’s to come. However, as a dividend investor, who reviews and watches the stock market it is extremely… difficult. Yes, difficult! I am in this mode, that I want to let everyone know what I go through during the month where I expected dividend increases, to see if you feel the same or to see what you do to help “ease” the anxiety!

Dividend increases are the name of the game and the two of us are checking every evening to see if one of our companies increased their dividend!

For those of you that are new to the website, each month, I try my best to compile a list of companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month. While I can’t include every company in the article, I do my best to capture as many Dividend Aristocrats and other companies as possible.

Okay, now we are SEVEN months down for the year, with five left to go. The weather has been more moderate, lately, with substantial rain fall. What else is coming down? It’s raining dividends baby! This was an overall “quiet” month from an alarming number of dividend payers, but the income was still nice to see, regardless. Let’s grab that cup of coffee and see my July results!
Dividend investing at it’s finest! I thought now would be a great time to reflect on what has occurred over the last 6 months in the dividend income portfolio of mine. I do not mean just any old reflection, but I am going to be specifically talking about dividend increases and what the impact has been on my portfolio this year.
