Difficulty in Waiting for The Dividend Increase

Each and every month, Bert writes about the expected dividend increases, each and every month.  I love those articles, as it completely HYPES me up for what’s to come.  However, as a dividend investor, who reviews and watches the stock market it is extremely… difficult.  Yes, difficult!  I am in this mode, that I want to let everyone know what I go through during the month where I expected dividend increases, to see if you feel the same or to see what you do to help “ease” the anxiety!

The dividend stock purchases machine keeps rolling!  Yes, this is yet another round of dividend stock purchases, covering my last two weeks of activity.  I am going to start doing this now, from an article standpoint, as my dividend stock purchases are becoming more frequent, due to certain life events and brokerage changes.  The stock market was more volatile the last two weeks, creating value on dividend stocks I own.  Therefore, I made a few stock purchases over the last two weeks and let’s find out what I bought!

Bert’s Recent Stock Buys – KHC and NGG

Bert’s Recent Buy – Kraft Heinz Company (KHC)

Bert’s September Dividend Stock Watch List

The calendar turns and I am ready to put some extra capital to work.   Over the last month, I have been busy initiating positions in Tyson, WestRock, and Illinois Tool Works.  The market has been interesting over the last few weeks.  There haven’t been too many buying opportunities out there, at least compared to the previous months.   Still, I run a stock screener each week (sometimes daily) to see what opportunities may be out there.  It has been a while since I have published my dividend stock watch list.  I figured this was a perfect month to do so.  Here is my September Dividend Stock Watch List!

Lanny’s Recent Stock Purchase – Kraft Heinz (KHC) & Isabella Bank Corp. (ISBA)

Tired of reading my purchase articles yet?  Better get used to it, because I am ready to unleash some capital on a go-forward basis.  There are reasons I am able to buy more individual stocks, which I will explain in a later post.  However, I unloaded capital, again, on Friday the 10th.  This was not a significant amount of capital but wanted to explain my two small purchases in Kraft-Heinz (KHC) and a small community bank of Isabella Bank Corp. (ISBA).
