A new month is upon us and I am eager to continue to buy stocks that make sense and add to my portfolio. 2018 has been off to a crazy start and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed following the madness of the stock market and eagerly awaiting these crazy dividend increase announcements. The dividend growth engine has been strong post tax reform, that is for sure. Today, I found three companies that have caught my eye. I will be watching these three dividend stocks closely. Here is my March Dividend Stock watch list!
What a month it has been for dividend increases! Each month, I highlight the companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month. For the first time, I am speechless. In January, I highlighted three companies that were expected to increase their dividend in the coming month. But man was I blown out of the water with all of the dividend increases that were announced. February will have some tough shoes to follow! Enough talk, let’s dive right in and summarize the companies that increased their dividend in January and which companies are expected to announce a dividend increase in February.
2018 is off to a roaring start. The stock market continues to rise and companies are announcing dividend increases and share buyback programs left and right. Dividend investors everywhere are feeling a nice jolt, that’s for sure. Outside of dividend increases, January has been a busy month for me. It has been a long, long time since I have done this. But last week, I purchased Realty Income (O) for the second time in January.
The calendar has flipped once again. You know what time that is…..time to summarize our monthly dividend income totals! To me, nothing is better than compiled your results for the month and seeing the growth realized in a short 12 month period. October came and went with a blink of an eye and it still blows my mind that 2018 is on the horizon. Before I start looking too far ahead, let’s take a look and review my October divided income totals.
The first quarter is racing to a close here! It has been over a month since my last stock purchase, T.Rowe Price Group, and I am starting to get the itch to buy again! The market has presented a few opportunities that caught my eye over the last few weeks. Here are the three stocks on my March watch list and hopefully you will be writing about another purchase article soon!
It is insane that I am already writing my January dividend income summary. Time flies by. It seems like just yesterday I was preparing my goals for the year and trying to map out my year. Now, we are already 1/12 of the way through executing my strategy and aiming for the fences. With one month in the books, I figured it is appropriate to review my January dividend income figures and compare the results to last year. So much can happen in 12 months and now, it is time to see the fruits of my labor. Let’s dive into the the results!
I’ve been getting excite to write this post ever since I published my November 2016 dividend income summary. Why? Because December is the BEST DIVIDEND INCOME MONTH OF THE YEAR! Not only do we receive dividends from the majority of companies in our portfolio, but we also receive distributions from our mutual funds. More often than not, the capital gains distributions cause you to fall out of your seat as the number never seems to disappoint, especially when you have been contributing to your 401k throughout the year. Now that it is officially 2017, time for me to perform my final dividend income summary of 2016! Let’s see my December dividend income figures!
