I just couldn’t sit on the sidelines on a certain company any longer. I saw Bert purchase a massive amount and then the dividend community was scooping up share, after share, after share. The market was still bumpy this past week and I decided to make a purchase in the earlier parts. I didn’t have as much capital, as I’d like to, but I did have a free trade credit at my disposal, that was going to expire in a few months. therefore, i decided to put my capital to use and buy an undervalued dividend growth stock for the portfolio! From reading the title to this article, you can only take a wild guess on what that company is. Read further on the details of my recent dividend stock purchase!
Well, it looks like I had an itch that needed to be scratched after compiling my May dividend stock watch list. After years of coveting this stock and patiently waiting on the sidelines for the right moment to strike, the purchase date finally arrived. After all, how could I pass up the opportunity to purchase one of my “Always Buy” stocks? Time to see why I finally initiated a position in Pepsico (PEP) in May!
I hope that your stomach has felt the ups and downs this year. The S&P 500 is pretty much flat year-to-date. However, that doesn’t mean that there haven’t been amazing opportunities out there. Opportunities that we haven’t seen in so fricken long, as dividend investors. However, with all of the events occurring this year – tax reform, tariffs, earnings being released for quarter 1, interest rates rising and inflation starting to creep (gas, groceries, etc.), is this the right time to jump in on dividend stock opportunities? I plan on talking about dividend stocks, where they are at today and comparing them to 5 year dividend yield averages. When doing this, it may showcase opportunities out there.
The market has been beating down consumer staple stocks lately, which shouldn’t exactly be a surprise to my fellow dividend growth investors. Lanny detailed this trend last month in his infamous “Battle of the Consumer Staple Stocks,“ ultimately showing how some of the best consumer staple stocks are trading at a nice discount. The trend has still continued to this day, which is great because I love consumer staple stocks. This was probably evidenced by the fact that I purchased P&G twice in April! I’m back on the lookout for another purchase as I have some capital to deploy. With the introduction I have written, it shouldn’t be a surprise, but my watch list is going to be heavily focused in consumer staples sector. Let’s check out the four companies on my May Dividend Stock Watch List.
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!
One can never predict the market. That is one fact that we know about the stock market. Not one individual knows what the price will close on for any given day, for any given stock. I read an article the other day and it made me smirk – there has never been one person to buy a stock at it’s absolute lowest point only to sell it at it’s absolute highest point. This is why I don’t try to time or predict the market.
Whoo! Here we go! The Cavs just clinched the Eastern Conference and are going to The Finals – beginning June 2nd, two of my best friends were married this month and I’m excited to see what opportunities lie ahead going into the last 7 months of the year. The market has been essentially slightly up since the end of May, but not by much – however, we still do have Tuesday, May 31st to make a statement (I’d be happy with a 5% stock shock downwards… haha). With that – let’s check out what dividends were received in this month of May 2016!
