After a strong end to 2017 it is time to usher in a new calendar year and a new set of goals. Whether you are racing to update our investment portfolios one final time in 2017 or too busy smiling as you update your dividend income summary for the amazing December dividend and capital gains distribution you received from your mutual fund holdings, there are a lot of great things to be excited about. One topic that always brings joy to the two of us…dividend increases. So each month, we try to summarize the companies that are expected to increase their dividend in the coming month. We are tracking this statistic like hawks, so we thought we would share our research with all of you. This isn’t an all-inclusive list, so please share any dividend increases you received last month or are expected to receive in the coming month with us in the comment section. Now, it is time to dive into the next edition of our monthly series. Here are the companies that we are expecting dividend increase from in January!
I cannot believe that I am writing this post for the final month in 2017. So many great things have happened in 2017 and I cannot wait to see what 2018 has in store for all of us. As investors, we have received some great (and some poor) dividend increases during the year. For the last time in 2017, I have compiled a list of dividend paying companies that are expected to announced dividend increases in December. Lanny and I spend so much time monitoring dividend announcements for a ton of companies, so we like to share some our research with all of you. This list isn’t all-inclusive, that would be impossible; but it includes the majority of the companies that we will be monitoring closely over the next 31 days. Now the fun begins. Let’s dive in and see which companies are expected to increase their dividend in December.
We weren’t kidding with our dividend stock watch lists posted earlier this month, expected dividend increases and even tweeting about how the market is opening up opportunities. It is always exciting when dividend aristocrats go on sale and one has capital to deploy. Due to the frugal lifestyle that Bert & I live, we were able to strike when the stock market took a few steps back. The end of October & early November has opened up quite a few opportunities in the dividend investing arena and what do Dividend Diplomats do best? You called it, brother, dividend investing of course! Let’s dive in to see our recent purchase that we both ended up buying for our respective dividend stock portfolios!
I’m sitting at my dining room table with a freshly brewed cup of coffee and the fall breeze blowing in. What a beautiful fall day here in Northeast Ohio. With a lot of the expenses associated with moving in and updating our house in the rear-view mirror, I’m finally starting to flip on the investing switch again and aggressively look for great opportunities to add to or establish new positions. I’m inspired by Lanny’s recent dividend income month where he covered over 100% of his monthly housing expenses with his dividend income. If I want F.I.R.E, I need to go get it. So today, I sat down and found four dividend stocks that I would like to watch over the next month. Let’s take a look at my October dividend stock watch list.
It’s that time of the month, where I have my calculator, the pen & pencil & I start analyzing what I love most, dividend stocks, and to see which companies have a chance to be on my watch list. I like to come out with the watch list towards the end of the month, as I line up my capital troops to see where they may be deployed. I did not make any investment stock purchases in July, yet, and the capital lineup is getting bigger.
Does time fly or what? With a blink of an eye, February flew by. I cannot believe that we are already two months through 2017! With each passing month, it is time to take a look at our family’s combined dividend income total for the month of February now that we are reporting our consolidated finances. 2017 is all about progress, so let’s see the results for the shortest month of the year; time to check out my February Dividend Income Summary!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope everyone was able to ring in the turn of the calendar with their loved ones and are having a healthy & happy new years thus far. This was the time period when everyone made their final pushes to achieve their goals for the year and ultimately & hopefully have ended up in a better position than they were a year ago. This is also one of my favorite month’s worth of dividend income, due to it being a quarter-end and the last month of the year. With the weather being sunny and melting the snow into the new year, let’s see if my portfolio was able to heat up and produce heft dividends for December!
