When talking about dividend increases, this is us talking about dividend investing, at it’s finest! Given the second quarter-end had recently passed, I wanted to reflect on what occurred over the last 6 months. This is not any old reflection, but specifically about dividend increases and their impact on my portfolio this year. Now that tax reform was 2018 news, how are the dividend increases stacking up this year?
We know what time it is. This is one of the best months to be a dividend investor, as we wrap up a quarter-end. The market finished off an impressive note, closing up 13% for the year, thus far. The weather is finally warming up, as I believe we reached 60 degrees one day or two in the month. This was a fantastic month of investing and earning dividends, which truly shows the power of time and consistency pushes you forward.
Wow. February was a blur for so many different reasons. With a blink of an eye, we find ourselves entering the third month of the year. While personally, things many have been fuzzy, our dividend income continues to roll in, along with the dividend increases. I swear, there was a new dividend increase announced every day in February! Lanny has kicked off our blog’s dividend income summaries and it will be tough to follow his $628 act. But I’ll give it a shot. Here is my February dividend income summary!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The winter is upon us and the holiday season is right around the corner. It is time to bust out the Christmas Trees, decorations, menorahs, and whatever else you and your families use to celebrate the holidays. I know our house is ready to go! On top of it, it is officially the most exciting dividend month of the year…December! But before I jump ahead, now that it is a new month, it is time to summarize the results from the previous month. Here is my November Dividend Income summary!
Labor Day is behind us and we are closing in on the final quarter of the year! Fall is my favorite season. The outdoors, changing leaves, football, playoff baseball, great food, bonfires….man I’m happy this season is here. As with each month, we take a look at how we performed compare to last year to measure our growth, progress, and pursuit of good old financial freedom! Here is my August dividend income summary folks.
Just when you thought summer was winding down, I am writing this in blistering heat out there – as it has just about touched 90 degrees here in Northeast Ohio. Last month I said it was raining dividends, well this month – we are scorching dividends baby! We are now EIGHT months down with FOUR monstrous months left to kick butt. I have been spending even more time to see where things are looking, financially, and let’s just say it’ll be a grind through the end of the year. Let’s grab that cup of coffee and see my August results!
Here we go, here we go! It is finally May and you know what that means….PLAYOFF BASKETBALL! But that’s not what I’m excited about today. One of my favorite part of turning the calendar is taking a few moments to see how I performed in the previous month. After all, we are all obsessed with numbers and love charting our progress. So naturally I LOVE putting together my April dividend income summary. Let’s see the results!
