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?

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!

Bert’s Recent Buy – Kraft Heinz Company (KHC)

After an inspirational discussion with Lanny over the weekend, I was looking to come out of the gates firing on Monday.   I was excited for the opportunity to add to my portfolio.  “firing out of the gates” may not be the best way to describe this purchase.  Overall, it wasn’t the largest.  But I was excited for the chance to add some nice income and continue to build a position in my portfolio .  Here is why I added to my position in Kraft Heinz (KHC)!
