Time is flying and life is moving at 1,000 miles per hour. It is RIDICULOUS to think that 2019 is almost halfway over. I guess that’s why we are pursuing financial freedom after all, right? To take back our time, slow things down, and enjoy every step along the way. And also reduce stress. We are all on this journey together! Which is why each month, we aggregate as many dividend income summary articles from around the community. So we can share, enjoy, and cheer on each individual journey. Here is the May 2019 version of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series!
Lanny said it best in his stock purchase article…the month of May was actually wild! Every day presented a new twist, turn, and market swing. I would transfer cash to my brokerage and get ready to make a purchase. Then boom, the market would swing upward. Despite the madness, the dividend income continued to flow. After all, that’s part of the beauty of dividend investing. Lanny published great dividend income results this month. As always, he is a tough act to follow. Especially when he announces a 48.8% YOY dividend increase. But I’ll give it my best shot. It is time to review my May Dividend Income summary!
Summer time is here! Tariff news have been relentless lately and the stock market is behaving as expected. We are riding big hills up and we are experiencing deep dives down. Time to check out my dividend stock watch list.
The month has closed and how fast time flies. We are already more than a third into the 2019 calendar year. Time is precious and dividend investors know the power of compounding starts and ends with time. As time does pass, dividend checks don’t care what day it is, as the checks continue to flow in! Now, it is time for the April installment of our dividend income from YOU the bloggers series!
Once again, as I sip on a delicious, warm cup of coffee, I have found myself shaking my head. This time, the disappointment was at the hands of Pepsico (PEP). Their recent 3% dividend increase left a lot to be desired. It is significantly lower than last year and their 5-year average dividend growth rate. But Pepsi wasn’t the only company that has made me feel this way in 2019. We’re noticing a frustrating trend in 2019….slowing dividend growth.
Well, 2019 is off to quite the start isn’t it? The market madness that ended the year continued into the beginning of 2019. Looks like we should expect a fun 2019 after all! For the last time this year, it is time to review my previous month’s dividend income and assess my performance. This one was exciting and I had a hunch that a record was looming. The results were tallied and my thoughts were confirmed. Time to dive into my December dividend income summary!
Since I am have free trades for a few more months, I was able to make a series of small purchases over the last several weeks. With Mr. Market being moody, there were plenty of positions that I wanted to add to or begin establishing. There is one new name on this list and I was able to add this company three times during this time frame! With the market sliding, I turned my attention to Dividend Aristocrats. In times like these, I like to try to add to those companies that have demonstrated their ability to pay their dividend through many economic cycles. Especially when the Aristocrats are trading at a discount.
