The quarter end baby! We all look and wait for a big dividend income month and September, usually never fails. The leaves are changing colors, the temperature is dropping and I have a sweatshirt on. Sitting here with a nice cup of joe and looking at the Dividend Income that flowed into my account. Blessed beyond belief everyone. Now let’s grab that cup of coffee and see my September dividend income results!
Wow. It is the fourth quarter already. It is hard to believe that the calendar is about to turn and the leaves are about to change colors. With a new month at hand, you know that means…another installment of our expected dividend increases series. For those of you that are new to the blog, each month we summarize a listing of companies that are expected to announce dividend increases in the coming month. The two of us LOVE dividend increases. So we thought we would share some of the excitement with you. Now, here are the companies expected to announce dividend increases in October!
September was a crazy month and it flew by. It felt like every day Lanny and I were either receiving a dividend, purchasing a stock, or watching for a dividend increase announcement. There was just a ton going on. September was also huge for me since I was able to knock out my first 2015 goal: Investing $15,000 in “New Capital” in 2015. With the recent downturn, I have felt as compelled as ever to maintain a low cash balance to purchase some great discounted dividend growth stocks. Now that the month is over, I can finally breathe and take a step back to assess my monthly dividend income and compare the total to prior periods. Let’s see the results for September.
Hey everyone! Hope everyone has started to enjoy their weekend! Looks like I am taking it easy on this Friday night, which I hope to share with everyone why I’ve been tired, with a lot of things on my mind lately. Regardless, I was sitting at my kitchen table doing mad pushups and reading articles, and thought – I’d love to share my point of view on the top 5 foundation dividend stocks that I think every beginning investor should have. Also, this could work for any investor really, especially one that is also transitioning from more of the “sexy” type of investing into something that we dividend investors feel – just makes more sense.
As the calendar prepares to turn, it is time once again to review one of the Dividend Diplomat’s favorite investing topics: dividend increases. Each month we compile a list of Dividend Aristocrats that we anticipate will announce a dividend increase and reward their shareholders by increasing their annual return! Lets see which aristocrats increased theirs in September and those that are expected to have a dividend increase in October!
The best month of the quarter is upon us! September adds a wave of capital to our portfolio through DRIPs or the receipt of cash. Tracking my portfolio is particularly fun in this month since many of the companies I own will pay a dividend this month and one of my stocks is supposed to increase its dividend this month. It seems like every two-three days a stock in my portfolio will have a new update for me to follow. It is great! Let’s take a look which Dividend Aristocrats are set to increase their dividend this month.
