Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone was able to ring in the turn of the calendar with their loved ones and are having a healthy & happy new years thus far. This was the time period when everyone made their final pushes to achieve their goals for the year and ultimately & hopefully have ended up in a better position than they were a year ago. This is also one of my favorite month’s worth of dividend income, due to it being a quarter-end and the last month of the year. With the weather being sunny and melting the snow into the new year, let’s see if my portfolio was able to heat up and produce heft dividends for December!
Well, I just finished plowing my driveway, and I definitely had to, in order to even be able to pull into my driveway. We didn’t have really any snow until last night, let’s just say winter has come by with a roaring hello! As the coffee is brewing and I am setting up my organized area to focus on writing, the stock watch list has come to mind. I have been monitoring high quality dividend stocks since the election and I am currently making my list and checking it twice, trying to find out which stocks on my watch list are naughty or nice. Come on in and check them out!
Fun time of the month! I have spent my Sunday morning researching and finding stocks that I like, and heck – some may be the exact same from last month’s article. What matters is that these are attractive, great dividend yielders, easy businesses to understand and are staple names to all! I was very excited the market has took a turn over the last 30 days and have started to open up more value for us dividend investors. Let’s see who is on my stock watch list!
July dividend income figures may not pack the same punch and dollar amounts that June has to offer, but that doesn’t mean that we all weren’t making moves and CRUSHING IT during July. Almost every dividend income report we read during the month saw some form of major progress, personal records, or discussed how movers were made to increase future dividend income! To echo the point we made last month, we are doing everything we can to get through as many dividend income articles as we can each month. If you aren’t included in our monthly summary, it doesn’t mean we didn’t read your article and your exclusion is definitely not personal. It is just a time thing! With that being said, it is time to check out our July Dividend Income summary from all of YOU in the dividend growth investing community.
Surprising title and article, right? I would be stunned to see a watch list, as well, if I were a reader, given the stock market has continued to hit highs. Just went you think they are heading for a few days in a row of red, the rug gets taken from underneath you. Bert and I have had endless conversations over the last week and it’s time to talk about what entities are on my radar. What companies are out there, that somehow have undervaluation written somewhere on them? Let’s dive in and see.
Lanny beat me to the punch for releasing our monthly dividend income summary and lets just say I have a tough act to follow. $1,100 in total dividend income and a 30.31% dividend growth rate…impressive numbers Lanny! You are crushing it. However, the show must go on here and luckily for me, I had some nice year over year growth as well. Time to peel back the layers and take a dive into my June dividend income summary!
I just couldn’t sit on the sideline any longer. For those of you that have followed our blog over the last month, you would have realized that there was one stock I have been fixated on…Target (TGT). It was the number 1 stock on my June watch list for a reason. Over the month, I was patiently waited for the right moment to strike. When I went to buy, the stock price increased. When I wasn’t able t access the internet to actually purchase the stock, the price fell. Finally, the stars aligned as the markets had two terrible days after the Brexit situation. Time to check out why and most importantly, how much TGT stock I purchased this week!
