March 2018 Dividend Income



Hey everyone. It's past time for my March dividend update! This month I earned $385.26 which is a bit lower than last year and last quarter. This was due in large part because of the timing of several dividends slid into April probably due to good friday where the markets were closed. So next month will be an unusually large month as a result. 

There's some cheap stocks out there that I am eyeing for my next purchase. XOM, PPL, SO and JNJ are looking attractive here. What stocks are you interested in headed into April?

I made one purchase in March and had no sales.

January 2018 Dividend Income



Sorry for the delay.  It's past time for my January dividend update! For the month I was able to earn $416.77 in dividend income! This is a healthy increase from the $336.41 a 24% increase in fact. That would be great to keep that growth up. What a crazy month in the markets we have so far in February as well. I see Walmart has taken a beating today down over 10%, I think the market was looking for a reason to dump WMT as it has been pretty over bought since this summers pump. If it keeps falling back to the $80's I may have to scoop up some shares.

I made two purchases in January and had no sales.

January Stock Purchases
  • Buckeye Partners (BPL) - 31 Shares @ $51.30 - $1590
  • PPL Corporation (PPL) - 50 Shares @ $31.74 - $1587
