Bert’s May Dividend Income Summary

Lanny said it best in his stock purchase article…the month of May was actually wild!  Every day presented a new twist, turn, and market swing.  I would transfer cash to my brokerage and get ready to make a purchase.  Then boom, the market would swing upward.  Despite the madness, the dividend income continued to flow.  After all, that’s part of the beauty of dividend investing.   Lanny published great dividend income results this month.  As always, he is a tough act to follow. Especially when he announces a 48.8% YOY dividend increase.  But I’ll give it my best shot.  It is time to review my May Dividend Income summary!

Bert’s Recent Purchase – AbbVie (ABBV)

On most occasions, us Diplomats are on the same page with stock purchases.  Since we are always sharing our thoughts, ideas, and analyses, chances are that if one Diplomat purchases a stock, there is a good chance the other one did as well.   This happened when the two of us initiated a position in ABBV in the fourth quarter and it happened once again in January when ABBV’s price fell through the floor.  Lanny wrote out his purchase of ABBV and WRK this week, and now it is my turn.  Here is why I added to ABBV!

Bert’s January Dividend Income Summary

I’m writing this article in the final minutes of the Super Bowl.   This wasn’t the most exciting game to watch and there was a lot less scoring than anticipated.  It was nice to receive a dividend from the official halftime show sponsor, Pepsi, this month.  Luckily, even though the game wasn’t too exciting, that wasn’t the case with our January dividend income summaries.   Lanny kicked off our site’s dividend income summaries with an impressive $777 dividend haul.  Incredible results Lanny!  How lucky of a number is that by the way??  It is a tough mark to beat, but here is the question, could I possibly have topped him this month?
