It’s hot, no doubt. The Cleveland Indians are on a roll this month and we are heading into the All Star Break soon. Further, we went through a drop on our rollercoaster stock market ride and are riding the hill back up in June! Similar to what they say as you hop in for the ride, you better buckle up! Though the stock market ride is not controllable, dividends and dividend stock opportunities are there. It’s time to check out my dividend stock watch list.
Well, well, well. Looks like another month has finally come to a close. We are in the first couple of weeks of a new month, so you know what that means… it is time to post my monthly dividend income update. What seems to be a recurring theme, Lanny beat me to the punch and published his February income summary last week. I want to echo everything the commenters said about his month. He crushed it and increased his February dividend income 43% compared to 2015. That was with KMI’s dividend cut. Congrats on the awesome month Lanny! Internally, I created this competition to defeat Lanny in terms of a dividend growth rate each month. 43% is a high bar to surpass, so let’s see if my dividend income in February grew more than his. Time to check out the results.
I’m getting an itch to invest. Even after purchasing Pfizer a few weeks ago I still have some capital that I am trying to deploy. This is eerily starting to remind me of when Lanny ran into the same problem (at the same time as a matter of fact!) of having capital to deploy but no where to put it. Despite the fact that the market wasn’t cooperating this week, I have my eyes on a few stocks that are getting very close to my “buy” zone. If the prices fall next week, I may not be able to resist buying. Time to check out my February Watch List!
The month of July has been a very unusually favorable month – especially if you have capital! We have seen the market go up and down, similar to last month, except this week, recently, the market has been on a bigger slide, opening up, of course, great dividend stock buying opportunities. Given the new opportunities unfolding in front of our eyes, it of course leaves us to really pin point down to which stocks are we really looking to purchase into. Lets see what is on our July watch list!
