The market has continued to soar in December. The impressive rally has helped everyone’s portfolios continue to soar to record heights. I must admit, it is a lot of fun watching your portfolio’s market value continue to climb. Unfortunately, there is one con to a booming stock market. There are not a lot of stocks trading at a value! But even with record prices, a few companies have caught my attention and earned a place on my January dividend stock watch list.
The year is flying by. For a good portion of the year, we have experienced some wild, and unpredictable swings, in the marketplace. I’m trying to be better about having a watch list handy to capitalize on sudden drops in the market. There are some names out there that caught my eye as I ran a stock screener during Labor Day weekend. So I put my thoughts down on paper. Please see my September Dividend Stock Watch List and let me know what you think! Hopefully there will be some opportunities to add to my portfolio.
Ah, dividend increases. The name of the game for dividend growth investors. The statistic that we all watch and monitor SO closely. In fact, the two of us obsess over it. So each month, I put together a listing of companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase. Dividend growth has slowed this year and it is a little frustrating. But that doesn’t mean we are going to stop watching closely. Here is out listing of expected dividend increases in July!
The holiday spirit is in the air and we are closing in on the end of 2018. With Lanny serving a healthy dose of inspiration by sharing with all of us that he crushed a major dividend investing milestone ($12,000 in annual dividend income, aka $1,000/month), I’m as motivated as ever to continue investing as much capital as possible into income producing assets. So today, I sat down and put together my initial December dividend stock watch list. There are a handful of companies on this listing, so lets dive right in!
The calendar turns and I am ready to put some extra capital to work. Over the last month, I have been busy initiating positions in Tyson, WestRock, and Illinois Tool Works. The market has been interesting over the last few weeks. There haven’t been too many buying opportunities out there, at least compared to the previous months. Still, I run a stock screener each week (sometimes daily) to see what opportunities may be out there. It has been a while since I have published my dividend stock watch list. I figured this was a perfect month to do so. Here is my September Dividend Stock Watch List!
I can’t believe I am about to say this. But half of 2018 is in the books already. Man oh man, where has is time going? As the calendar gets ready to turn, it is time for another installment of the “Expected Dividend Increases” summary article. For those of you that are new to the website, each month, I try my best to compile a list of companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month. While I can’t include every company in the article, I do my best to capture as many Dividend Aristocrats and other companies as possible. Let’s see which companies are expected to announce dividend increases in July!
