We are always on the prowl for an undervalued, dividend growth stock in the community banking sector. The two of us love banks and enjoy diving into their financial statements to uncover these gems. In today’s dividend stock analysis, we will review a $1b bank headquartered in Monroeville, PA: Standard AVB Financial Corp, STND.
I thought the end of February was insane for the market. During that time, I took advantage of some great deals in the stock market. But if March has proven anything to me, it is the importance of why you cannot try to time the market. Each day presents a new set of twists and turns, as more information and details come to light about the coronavirus and those impacted. The most important thing is we all do our best to stay healthy. Like Lanny this week, who wrote about how his family added $230 in dividend income from purchases in February, I also wanted to take some time and summarize my stock purchases from February.
On your journey to financial freedom or financial independence, you have to stay hungry out there. The stock market volatility from the extreme news & outbreak of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) displayed opportunity and one has to be ready to strike on a dividend stock when the price is right. Time to check out my February activity!
Not only have the markets been see-sawing, but so has the weather here in Cleveland. From snowing one day to 50 degress the next day, it is wild! Luckily though, spring training has started and baseball season is right around the corner. Hopefully the Indians get off to a hot start. Speaking of hot starts, Lanny kicked off our dividend income summary by showing how he and his wife earned almost $900 in dividend income in February and notch a 17% annual growth rate. Now, it is my turn. Lets jump right in to my February dividend income summary.
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!
Well, Lanny started our dividend income summary party off with quite a bang. Almost $5,500 Lanny! U n b e l i e v a b l e. That is how you motivate me and the rest of this awesome dividend investing community. Like Lanny, I am happy to say that my wife and I posted a personal record in December and I’m excited to share the results!
The market has continued to soar in December. The impressive rally has helped everyone’s portfolios continue to soar to record heights. I must admit, it is a lot of fun watching your portfolio’s market value continue to climb. Unfortunately, there is one con to a booming stock market. There are not a lot of stocks trading at a value! But even with record prices, a few companies have caught my attention and earned a place on my January dividend stock watch list.
