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.
Wow, 2019 is almost 75% of the way done. Look at that, look at that! If there is one thing that the year has taught us, it is that time is the most valuable commodity. Maximize your time, that’s the name of the game. For us, dividend growth investing is one of the main tools to unlock more time. That is why focusing on dividend increases is part of our daily routine. Each month, we take a look at major dividend paying companies that are set to announce a dividend increase in the coming month. Here are the expected dividend increases in October 2019.
The month of May was absolutely WILD. You could not even tell what was going to happen each day, let alone each hour. Is the new saying – April Rises, brings May Surprises? It does this time around, that’s for sure. The trade tariff discussions, inverted yield curves, interest rate pressure & sensitivity, really have have created opportunities in the stock market. Therefore, as a dividend investor must do, I went on a slight dividend stock purchase spree!
May is off and running. The market has had some very hot and very cold days. It looks like there may be some more buying opportunities on the horizon (finally). Before I get too excited looking ahead, let’s look back at April and see how dividend income I received. Lanny kicked this off on our website in style, absolutely CRUSHING April by posting a 40%+ growth rate. He is always a tough act to follow. But I will do my best. Here is my April Dividend Income Summary!
