Weather is heating up and it’s time to put on the spectacles for the dividend stock watch list. I feel like I have been on the side lines for such a long time, not having purchased a stock in weeks. Over Memorial Day Weekend, I was able to take time aside and really focus on the quality of stocks that are out there. As others know, I came to find out that there are many opportunities out there for us and it is such a hard decision when it comes to which one to add, to the dividend portfolio. Bert comes out with his expected dividend increase articles, others are buying stocks on the daily, it seems, and you know what, it’s time for me to see what sights I should be set on. Without further-ado, here are my dividend stocks I am watching for June!
Is there anything sweeter than opening up your laptop after a hard day’s work, checking your dividend portfolio, and then realizing that one of your holdings increased their dividend that day? It is such a sweet/satisfying feeling, one that Lanny and I cannot get enough of. We’ve constantly calling and texting each other the minute we find out that our forward dividend increased without lifting a finger! Each month, we try to identify as many companies as we can that are expected to announce an increased dividend in the coming month so we can hopefully share our excitement with some of you! Let’s see which companies are expected to announce dividend increases in May!
After taking a month off, it is time to for the next installment of our monthly article summarizing every dividend growth investor’s favorite topic…DIVIDEND INCREASES! For those of you that are new followers, each month we try to summarize as many companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month as we can. Why? Because it gives us something to look forward to and there is a chance it may impact someone’s investment decision! This is going to be an exciting month because there are some big names in the investing community that are set to announce an increases. Now, it is time to roll up our sleeves and see which companies are expected to announce a dividend increase in April 2018.
The market is actually down now, year-to-date. Luckily, it’s not just one company here or there, that is bringing the whole ship south. Instead, there are a vast number of companies that are seeing their price movements turn downward, unlocking value in the market place. As dividend investors, this is news that we all love to see. When there are macro-events in the economy, such as tariffs, trade wars, interest rate movements and technology enhancements – this usually leads me to go into one direction, when evaluating what dividend stock to buy. The industry that has shown signs of value, for the price, is the consumer industry! I want to do a comparison of a few stocks within that industry.
That’s right I am back at it again folks! Just when you thought that everything can be strategized and plotted out on a map, until you come to this site and realize – you can go deeper, simpler, easier and automatic. I am trying to make this investing journey an automated process as much as possible, as then you can allow yourself to focus on going forward, the everyday variables, planning further with the future and enjoying more of the moment now.
With the first month of 2017 coming to a close, I thought it would be a good idea to put a dividend stock watch list together to focus in on a few companies that have caught my eye recently. What’s crazy is that each day brings an exciting new day to the market and it seems like we have snapped out of our two month streak of constant appreciation and are finally starting to see some great companies trading at a discount. After my last purchase and Lanny’s recent portfolio review, I am as motivated as every to keep pushing capital into the marketplace and increase my passive income as much as possible. Now lets take a look at my January Dividend Stock Watch List!
Now that 2016 is coming to an end, I am very excited to ring in the New Year, that’s for sure. Putting back up the Christmas Tree, cleaning out any items that are needing to be thrown away and creating more simpleness in my house had me thinking about the big stocks I’m looking forward to in 2017. There are many reasons why I am trying to look at things more from a “bigger picture” and refining/tightening/sharpening a focused strategy in 2017, as it relates to investing. The S&P 500 is up over 10% through Christmas and due diligence is going to be that much more “fun”.
