It’s the most wonderful time of the year! The winter is upon us and the holiday season is right around the corner. It is time to bust out the Christmas Trees, decorations, menorahs, and whatever else you and your families use to celebrate the holidays. I know our house is ready to go! On top of it, it is officially the most exciting dividend month of the year…December! But before I jump ahead, now that it is a new month, it is time to summarize the results from the previous month. Here is my November Dividend Income summary!
Happy early Thanksgiving everyone! 2018 has been such an amazing year for some many reasons. There is just a lot to be thankful for and hopefully all of use take some time this week to reflect and spend some time with our loved ones. We definitely will! Since another month has come to a close and bloggers have been furiously releasing their dividend income summaries, you know what that means…time for the next installment of our dividend income from YOU the bloggers series. For those of you that are not familiar, each month, each month, we gather as many dividend income summaries from the community to share the results with all of you. Here is the October version of the dividend income from YOU the bloggers series!
Man oh man has October been exciting so far. Lanny and I started off the month strong by making several rounds of investments (Lanny’s summary article can be found here and mine can be found here). We were feeling pretty happy with our decisions. On top of it, I created a dividend stock watch list to prepare myself for another set of purchases. Then, well, we all know what happened. The market had a massive two-day sell-off. Many investors capitalized on the downturn and we have been seeing a lot of purchase articles featuring some great stocks. This may be one of those articles, as it reflects my purchases from right before and during the October sell-off. The splash isn’t as large as you might have thought and we are still being patient. But I did have the chance to purchase three different stocks last week. Here is a summary of my second round of purchases in October!
The end of 2018 is rapidly approaching. With only three months to-go, I am working hard to identify different investment opportunities. With some extra cash, I am ready to put my capital to work and increase my dividend income as much as possible before the end of the year. In this month’s edition of my dividend stock watch list, I identified four stocks that I will keep an eye on. Ironically, I actually own all four stocks on this watch list. And on top of it, each have a dividend yield greater than 3%. So a potential purchase may add quite the punch. With that in mind, let’s see which four companies made the cut for my October Dividend Stock Watch List!
Fall is in the air, postseason baseball is about to start for the Indians, the Browns won their first game since 2016, dividends continue to increase by large percentages, and we have officially entered the fourth quarter. Since it is a new month, you know what that means? It is time to summarize my dividend income from the previous month. Lanny kicked off the festivities by releasing his dividend income article and disclosing the fact he received over $1,700 in dividend income during the month. Incredible Lanny, just incredible. Congratulations! Now that I am nice and motivated, let’s check out the results. Here is my September dividend income summary,
Wow. It is the fourth quarter already. It is hard to believe that the calendar is about to turn and the leaves are about to change colors. With a new month at hand, you know that means…another installment of our expected dividend increases series. For those of you that are new to the blog, each month we summarize a listing of companies that are expected to announce dividend increases in the coming month. The two of us LOVE dividend increases. So we thought we would share some of the excitement with you. Now, here are the companies expected to announce dividend increases in October!
Shortly after I purchased shares of KHC last week, I decided to jump back into the action. Mr. Market presented two opportunities for investments that were on my watch list. So I couldn’t resist the opportunity to add some nice dividend income, right? Here is why I purchased additional shares of Kraft (again) and initiated a new position in National Grid (NGG)!
