Bert’s November Dividend Income Summary

So Lanny jumped the gun a little bit when he posted his November dividend income summary last week.  Hey Lanny…news flash….November ended yesterday, not last week.  Who knows, maybe he had too much turkey on Thanksgiving and forgot that the month wasn’t actually over.  Now that November has officially come to a close and we enter the FINAL month of 2015, it is time to take a look at the dividends received in November and check my progress compared to the previous quarter and year.  As a community, we have made amazing strides as evidence through our monthly summary of dividend income from around the community.  So let’s see if we could keep the momentum rolling in November!

Realty Income (O) Stock Analysis

I have a little capital to invest over the next few weeks and I am looking to make a splash with my next purchase.  It has been a few weeks since I purchased my last stock and I am starting to get the itch to invest again.  I still have just under $200 to go to achieve my goal of reaching $2,750 in projected dividend income by the end of the year, so I want my next purchase to count.   Don’t worry everyone, I’m not chasing yield, I’ve learned that lesson the hard way.   My focus is shifting to a company that I am shocked is not in my portfolio by now and I may be the only investor in the dividend growth investing community to not own this stock.   It is time to run Realty Income through the Dividend Diplomats’ Stock Screener.

Bert’s August Dividend Income Summary

Last month Lanny beat me to the punch and unleashed an amazing $740 dividend income month in July.    It was a tough act to follow, especially considering that I came close but fell short of beating him.  While it is unlikely to happen again, there is one thing I can promise….I will get my article out first this month!   That really is not the point here though.  We write these articles monthly so we can track our progress and see how far along we have come in such a short period of time.   We have been in the dividend investing community for nearly a year and a half now and writing this article each month never gets old.  With that being said, let’s take a look at my August dividend income summary.

Bert’s May Dividend Income Summary

What a month it has been.  The Cavs began their postseason push, the weather was beautiful, I had a nice vacation to New England, and I received some nice dividend checks this month!  What could be better.  Over the weekend, Lanny put together a rock solid list highlighting the dividend income received by some of you in the dividend investing community.  And I must say, that was one impressive list and it was fun to see how well everyone else performed.  It helps me focus and continue to push myself to build income streams as large as all of yours.  Some great motivation!  Anyways, Lanny left one person off of the list…me.  What the heck Lanny?  So let’s fix that and see how well I stacked up against myself and others during the month of May.
