Bert’s November Stock Purchases

Like Lanny, as he noted in his November purchase article, this has been a relatively quiet month from a purchasing perspective.  After a crazy October that saw wild swings in the market and a lot of small purchases, November was calmer as many companies rebounded from that rough October.  Of course though, there were some opportunities that presented themselves.  I had to dip my toe in the market a little bit, right??  Here is a summary of my November stock purchases!

The dividend stock purchases machine keeps rolling!  Yes, this is yet another round of dividend stock purchases, covering the first two weeks of activity in November.  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 has continued it’s roller-coaster ride, creating value on dividend stocks I currently or have wanted to own.  Therefore, I made a few stock purchases over this time period and let’s dive in and find out what I bought!

Bert’s October Stock Purchases – Part 3 – October 19th through October 26th

Since I am have free trades for a few more months, I was able to make a series of small purchases over the last several weeks.  With Mr. Market being moody, there were plenty of positions that I wanted to add to or begin establishing.  There is one new name on this list and I was able to add this company three times during this time frame!  With the market sliding, I turned my attention to Dividend Aristocrats.  In times like these, I like to try to add to those companies that have demonstrated their ability to pay their dividend through many economic cycles.  Especially when the Aristocrats are trading at a discount.

Bert’s Recent Stock Purchases – Part 2 – October 9 – 12

Man oh man has October been exciting so far.   Lanny and I started off the month strong by making several rounds of investments (Lanny’s summary article can be found here and mine can be found here).  We were feeling pretty happy with our decisions.  On top of it, I created a dividend stock watch list to prepare myself for another set of purchases.  Then, well, we all know what happened.  The market had a massive two-day sell-off.   Many investors capitalized on the downturn and we have been seeing a lot of purchase articles featuring some great stocks.  This may be one of those articles, as it reflects my purchases from right before and during the October sell-off.  The splash isn’t as large as you might have thought and we are still being patient.  But I did have the chance to purchase three different stocks last week.   Here is a summary of my second round of purchases in October!

Bert’s May Dividend Income Summary

We are swiftly approaching the halfway mark for 2018.  Man oh man, where has time gone?   Lanny, like so many of you already, published his May Dividend Income report and crushed it.  He earned almost $500 in dividend income and posted a 30% dividend increase!  Nice freaking job Lanny.  That’s how you crush it right there.  I’ve spent some time compiling my results here.  Let’s see if my May dividend income summary was as strong as Lanny’s!

Expected August Dividend Increases

As we approach a new month, it is time once again to see which companies have historically increased their dividend in August.   Could the recent pullback that occurred at the end of last week present a buying opportunity for a Dividend Aristocrat right before the company announces a dividend increase?  ‘
