Dividend Income Report: February 2021

February is gone, alone with winter’s final snowstorm that impacted the Pacific Northwest during the middle of the month, and spring is right around the corner. The market did pretty well until the final week of the month, when it became rather choppy and somewhat volatile. Hopefully this will pass and the market will return …

Dividend Income Report: January 2021

Well, 1/12th of the new year is already done and in the books. The market has certainly stayed quite bullish, continuing its upward trend unabated. Are we in a bubble? Maybe, as many stocks are clearly overvalued and a correction sometime this year is a certainty when the market is this overheated. A future correction’s …

2020 in Review

Hello 2021, goodbye 2020! What’s there to say about 2020 that hasn’t been said already? The year started out hopeful, despite knowing it was going to be a very contentious election year as the year unfolded. Who expected it to turn to s**t so fast? By spring the world found itself in lockdown and the …

Dividend Income Report: December 2020

December, as well as the year, is over! It’s rare that I’m glad to see the previous year over and done, but 2020 is certainly a year that has been challenging to us all. My wife and I are still recovering from our COVID encounter last month. We tire more easily and I still don’t …

Dividend Income Report: November 2020

I hope you and yours had a good November and a great Thanksgiving. As for me, November was NOT a good month. Some time during the first week me and my wife caught the COVID-19 virus. Ugh! As flus go, I’ve had worse but it was still not a good experience. At its worst, frequent …

Dividend Income Report: October 2020

Well, I hope you had a good October and Halloween wasn’t too scary. What scared me was the market’s rapid decline in the final days of the month. My portfolio’s value dropped over 7%, so my Halloween had an extra dose of fear. But the elections, while not all completely resolved, have dissipated the air …

Dividend Income Report: September 2020

Bye-bye September 2020! Well, another month is gone. Summer is over and autumn is revving up, with colder mornings and tree foliage changing color. While I like summers, the hot days and nights of August become tiresome and make me look forward to the early weeks of autumn. September saw the US stock market’s growth …

Dividend Income Report: August 2020

And so goes August into the past. The stock market was quite bullish for most of the month, being pushed higher by the tech sector and a somewhat more optimistic view of the near future. As for the ongoing pandemic, the number of US COVID-19 cases is growing, but the fatality rate has been fairly …

Dividend Income Report: July 2020

So long July 2020, it’s been an interesting month. As you know, July saw continued civil unrest but at less intensity than seen in early June, COVID-19 fatalities crossed the 150K mark while vacine research seems to be making solid progress, and the economy is slowly but steadily recovering as more businesses are opening up …

Dividend Income Report: June 2020

And so ends the first half of 2020. Needless to say, the tumult of 2020 just keeps on rolling. In addition to the continued civil unrest across US cities and the number of COVID-19 cases rising in many states with relaxed quarantine rules, the stock market’s 50 or so days of recovery came to an …
