Bert’s March Dividend Income Summary

I cannot believe that we have another month in the book!  Where the heck is time going?  Baseball season is coming and life is flying fast at me.  All great stuff though.  This month’s article even features a new image!  Finally, I decided to do away with the old “Dividend Income” image and get creative. Lanny updated his last year, so it was time for me to as well.  My wife and I were playing Scrabble and then I had this idea for the article.  But back to business, I’m starting to ramble.  At the beginning of the month, we each post our dividend income summaries to track and monitor our progress.  Lanny recently released his March dividend income summary and produced absolutely insane numbers.  I’ll let you see them for yourself.  But all I have to say is DAMN LANNY!   It is my turn now.  Here is my March dividend income summary!

Slowing Dividend Growth in 2019 and Why It Is Not All Doom and Gloom

Once again, as I sip on a delicious, warm cup of coffee, I have found myself shaking my head.  This time, the disappointment was at the hands of Pepsico (PEP).  Their recent 3% dividend increase left a lot to be desired.  It is significantly lower than last year and their 5-year average dividend growth rate.   But Pepsi wasn’t the only company that has made me feel this way in 2019.  We’re noticing a frustrating trend in 2019….slowing dividend growth.

Bert’s January Dividend Income Summary

I’m writing this article in the final minutes of the Super Bowl.   This wasn’t the most exciting game to watch and there was a lot less scoring than anticipated.  It was nice to receive a dividend from the official halftime show sponsor, Pepsi, this month.  Luckily, even though the game wasn’t too exciting, that wasn’t the case with our January dividend income summaries.   Lanny kicked off our site’s dividend income summaries with an impressive $777 dividend haul.  Incredible results Lanny!  How lucky of a number is that by the way??  It is a tough mark to beat, but here is the question, could I possibly have topped him this month?

Why I Purchased Shares of Dominion Energy (D)

January has been off to an interesting start.  Lanny has crushed it with his stock purchases over the last 30 days, adding some serious dividend income to his total.  Me, not so much.  I’ve been on the sidelines for a while now and talked about how frustrated that was making me in my last dividend income summary.  Now, that’s no longer the case and I’ve finally made my first stock purchase of 2019.   As the title suggests, I purchased shares of Dominion Energy recently and here are some of the main reasons why.

Bert’s October Dividend Stock Watch List

The end of 2018 is rapidly approaching.  With only three months to-go, I am working hard to identify different investment opportunities.  With some extra cash, I am ready to put my capital to work and increase my dividend income as much as possible before the end of the year.  In this month’s edition of my dividend stock watch list, I identified four stocks that I will keep an eye on.  Ironically, I actually own all four stocks on this watch list.  And on top of it, each have a dividend yield greater than 3%.  So a potential purchase may add quite the punch.   With that in mind, let’s see which four companies made the cut for my October Dividend Stock Watch List!
