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!
The final month of the quarter is flying by. Where has time gone? With just under half of the month left, I wanted to follow Lanny’s lead and prepare a March Dividend Stock watch list myself. Fresh off of my recent portfolio review, I am ready to continue pushing forward and grow our portfolio. This listing will have three stocks on it. Let’s dive into my March dividend stock watch list.
For the first time on this website, I thought it would be a good idea to publish a review of my investment portfolio! Lanny has been doing so each quarter and we are discussing many of these metrics on a regular basis either when together or on the phone. So I figured it would be a good time to sip on a cup of tea (notice no coffee today) and dive into some of the numbers.
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!
Yes, the financial investment engine of my dividend portfolio continues to receive steady capital on a consistent basis! The last purchase article saw me deploy $2,500, which was on the lighter side, but let’s just say that these two weeks did not disappoint They say money never sleeps and these prior 14 days were no different. It’s now time to find out my dividend stock purchases!
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.
