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!
What a journey it has been so far. Last week, after a sudden drop in earnings, Target’s price fell and I swooped up an additional 30 shares of the major retailer. Now, I own 80 freaking shares and couldn’t be happier. But the
good great news didn’t stop there. No, that investment also put me over a milestone that I have been eyeing for a few months now. This last purchased pushed my forward dividend income over the $3,000 mark and you know what, there is no turning back now. How did I get to this point? Let’s take a look!
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!
Another month bites the dust! 2016 is officially 33% over everyone! The market began showing signs of weakness towards the tail end of the month and it seems like every dividend investor had a collective sigh of relief. There were two stocks that I have been big fans of for a while that finally had a nice pullback, so they earned a spot on my Watch List. The don’t have the highest yield, but they are all star companies in their industry. Let’s hope the slide continues for Visa and Starbucks. Back to business, now that I have received my final April dividend income summary.
