August Dividend Income From YOU The Bloggers!

Markets up, markets down.  That seems to be the theme of 2019.  Oil prices have been the latest item to experience wild swings.  Further, interest rates are starting to slowly climb up once again, so hopefully many of you were able to take advantage and refinance your mortgage (I know Bert did – article to come on the topic).  Each swing, each change in the market, presents a new wave of opportunities for long-term investors like ourselves.  That’s why it is important to have a stock screener (Read our Dividend Stock Screener), establish a watch list, and most importantly, SHARE YOUR IDEAS WITH THE COMMUNITY.

What’s crazy is  how many stock purchases the two of us have made over the years that stemmed from an article we read on one of your websites.  We cherish this community.  Which is why we aggregate as many dividend income summary articles from around the community.  Here is the August  2019 version of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series.  It is time to get motivated!

July Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers!

The market continues to swing, as we kick off the second half of 2019.  Declining interest rates stole the show during the month, as the Fed cut interest rates in July (as expected).   The interest rates have led to a refinancing boom, that saw one of us refinance our mortgages (article to come).  Seeing the market swing on a daily basis is a great reminder for why we are long-term dividend growth investors.  With a long-term investing horizon, we are able to relax during short-term turbulence and focus on the end prize…financial freedom.   It is part of this crazy journey that we, as a community, have embarked on!  Which is why each month, we aggregate as many dividend income summary articles from around the community.  Here is the July 2019 version of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series!

Bert’s May Dividend Income Summary

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!
