This article should be interesting. The stock market is just crushing it and there is just not much room for opportunity. You can reach for value, but are you reaching for true value or are you reaching at a poor company that has, what appears to be, strong dividend metrics? I thought to rewind the tape back and really take a hard look at the Dividend Aristocrats. You know, those companies that increase their dividend EVERY YEAR for at least 25 years+? Yes, that is who I am talking about. Therefore, I peeled back the curtain on the top 10 yielding dividend aristocrats out there, seeing their performance and hey – maybe even find some value.
For the first time on this website, I thought it would be a good idea to publish a review of my investment portfolio! Lanny has been doing so each quarter and we are discussing many of these metrics on a regular basis either when together or on the phone. So I figured it would be a good time to sip on a cup of tea (notice no coffee today) and dive into some of the numbers.
Another month is in the books in 2018. It blows my mind that we are almost halfway through 2018. Each month, I do my best to compile a list of companies that are expected to announce a dividend increase in the coming month. While I can’t include every company in the article, I do my best to capture as many Dividend Aristocrats and other companies as possible. Here is the next installment in our monthly series. It is time to see which companies are expected to announce dividend increases in June!
The first quarter is racing to a close here! It has been over a month since my last stock purchase, T.Rowe Price Group, and I am starting to get the itch to buy again! The market has presented a few opportunities that caught my eye over the last few weeks. Here are the three stocks on my March watch list and hopefully you will be writing about another purchase article soon!
I’ve been getting excite to write this post ever since I published my November 2016 dividend income summary. Why? Because December is the BEST DIVIDEND INCOME MONTH OF THE YEAR! Not only do we receive dividends from the majority of companies in our portfolio, but we also receive distributions from our mutual funds. More often than not, the capital gains distributions cause you to fall out of your seat as the number never seems to disappoint, especially when you have been contributing to your 401k throughout the year. Now that it is officially 2017, time for me to perform my final dividend income summary of 2016! Let’s see my December dividend income figures!
Are you holding on as tight as I am seeing the fluctuation in the stock market? The rollercoaster has been hot and heavy since Tuesday and slightly reminds me of a few instances we had last year. I am never one to predict where the market is going nor what I think is the best stock right now, therefore, this article will service one primary purpose. That is – to hold on to the handle bars on the rollercoaster ride and understand why you are sitting in the seat, is what matters the most. Continue reading
My last two articles have been reviewing my past performance, checking in on my goals through the end of September and reviewing my September dividend income. Both of the articles were showing that my portfolio and dividend income are trending in the right direction. With three months to spare, I’m looking to keep that momentum going. So I took some time tonight to prepare my October stock watch list and see if I can pinpoint a few stocks to keep a close eye on over the next several weeks.
