Fall is in the air. It is my wife’s favorite season, and I’m enjoying celebrating it with her and my daughter. The leaves should be changing soon. Plus, there have been plenty of great festivals and the best part, different fall beers, to try! Lanny kicked off our website’s dividend income summary festivities with some jaw-dropping numbers. Combined, his household dividend income was over $3,000! Couldn’t be more proud of them and what they are accomplishing. It sure motivates us to keep pushing forward. While we didn’t hit $3,000 in dividend income, we are continuing to grow our income in some capacity. Let’s check out our September Dividend Income summary.
Markets up, markets down. That seems to be the theme of 2019. Oil prices have been the latest item to experience wild swings. Further, interest rates are starting to slowly climb up once again, so hopefully many of you were able to take advantage and refinance your mortgage (I know Bert did – article to come on the topic). Each swing, each change in the market, presents a new wave of opportunities for long-term investors like ourselves. That’s why it is important to have a stock screener (Read our Dividend Stock Screener), establish a watch list, and most importantly, SHARE YOUR IDEAS WITH THE COMMUNITY.
What’s crazy is how many stock purchases the two of us have made over the years that stemmed from an article we read on one of your websites. We cherish this community. Which is why we aggregate as many dividend income summary articles from around the community. Here is the August 2019 version of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series. It is time to get motivated!
Another month is in the books and 2019 continues to fly by at a record pace. Baseball season is winding down and football season is starting up again. Plus, we are approaching fall, which is my wife’s favorite season. It’ll be even more special now that we can celebrate it with our daughter for the first time. August was another crazy month for the market. There were wild swings, buying opportunities, and naturally, the market climbed towards the end. But during that time, dividend income provided us a consistent dividend income stream. Lanny kicked off the party on this website by posting insane results (Read about his $800+ dividend income month). So now it is my turn. Let’s dive into my August Dividend Income summary.
Looking back, July was a pretty monumental month for me. My daughter turned four months old, went to an in home daycare for the first time, Cleveland hosted the MLB All Star Game, and it was my birthday! We talk about milestones on this website a lot. Although it wasn’t an investing milestone, my birthday did represent another milestone that I won’t talk about. But I am learning quickly that time does fly and things can happen with a blink of an eye. That’s why today, I am going to reflect on the dividend income received last month. Here is my July dividend income summary!

Bert and Lanny have amassed a portfolio of some of the best dividend paying stocks in the market. Many of the stocks that they own have increased their dividends for multiple decades.
Past dividend growth does not guarantee future growth. That being said, companies with long track records of dividend growth often enjoy very high levels of free cash flow. Companies that are able to grow free cash flow are much more likely to continue paying and raising their dividends going forward.
The following five stocks are those from Bert and Lanny’s portfolio that we believe investors can purchase right now.
June was an odd month for many reasons. One will become apparent later in the article. The other reason…it flew by. In the blink of an eye, it’s July. Lanny continues to do amazing things on his financial front and I’m doing my best to follow suit. June had some nice progress. Let’s review my June Dividend Income Summary.
Well, I’ll start by addressing the elephant in the room for dividend investors. There isn’t much value out there. Especially as interest rates continue to fall (thanks for the detailed analysis on the impact of interest rates Lanny) . Still, after talking to Lanny on the phone Saturday night about our portfolios, I realized there still are a few companies trading at a discount. So I decided to dust off the Dividend Diplomats Stock Screener and put a watch list together. Here are the three companies on my Dividend Stock Watch List for June and July.
