Expected Dividend Increases – December 2017

I cannot believe that I am writing this post for the final month in 2017.  So many great things have happened in 2017 and I cannot wait to see what 2018 has in store for all of us.  As investors, we have received some great (and some poor) dividend increases during the year.   For the last time in 2017, I have compiled a list of dividend paying companies that are expected to announced dividend increases in December.  Lanny and I spend so much time monitoring dividend announcements for a ton of companies, so we like to share some our research with all of you.  This list isn’t all-inclusive, that would be impossible; but it includes the majority of the companies that we will be monitoring closely over the next 31 days.   Now the fun begins. Let’s dive in and see which companies are expected to increase their dividend in December.

Third purchase in 31 days?  Now that’s what I’m talking about.  I’m starting to feel like the Lanny of old again, if only the grey hair can revert back to black, I’d appreciate it.  January finished off with some tail winds, as big final year earning releases are coming out, Trumps making his speeches and movements, as well as your everyday volatility that January typically brings.  As dividend investors, we need to sit tight and buy when we find the right value at hopefully the right times if you can.  This purchase signifies that, based on my analysis.  Let’s find out why I purchase Pfizer (PFE)!

July Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers!

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.
