Dividend Income Report for August 2017

Wow! August is over and the end of summer is drawing nigh as the days are slowly becoming shorter and the weather just a little bit cooler! It’s been a somewhat busy month for us, with the patio extension project we’ve been working on (still not done), plus a short pleasant vacation in central Oregon. …

Dividend Income Report for July 2017

July 2017 is finished and done. I hope every US reader had a great Independence Day and every dividend investor had a good month. The heatwave hitting the Pacific Northwest this week has impacted my productivity a bit, so I’ve been feeling lethargic and not very energetic. So sorry for the slight delay in getting …

My Latest Stock Buys: CODI, CLM, FGB

In the past two weeks I have made three stock buys, which is a bit more than the usual month’s 1-2 buys. But I saved my pennies since my last buy, so I could do it. First, I bought an additional 100 shares of CODI (Compass Diversified Holdings) at $17.45 per share. While my timing …

Dividend Income Report for June 2017

Here in the Pacific Northwest, summer seems to be in full swing but the days seem to alternate between clear and sunny and overcast and moderately humid (ugh). Still, that’s better than the typical grayshine and rain the region is most known for. With the end of June comes the dividend income total for the …

Dividend Income Report for May 2017

June (and summer) is here! The grayshine and rain that made up a large portion of May’s weather here in the Pacific Northwest has finally given way to blue skies, sunshine, and quite warm temperatures. Too bad it doesn’t last more than three months (if that) here in the great Pacific Northwest. I guess I …

My Latest Buys: WDR, TIXC

This week I made two stock buys. First, I bought 100 more shares of Waddell & Reed Financial (NYSE:WDR) at $16.9265 per share, bringing my total number of WDR shares to 300. My next buy is quite different than my usual stock aquisitions. I bought 300 shares of Tix Corp. (OTCMKTS:TIXC) at $0.89 per share …

Dividend Income Report for April 2017

Goodbye April, hello May! Here in the Pacific Northwest, there was plenty of rainy days and nights, but there were also enough tantalizing warm sunny days to make me believe that winter is truly in the rearview mirror. And with the start of the new month comes a look at how my dividend income added …

My Latest Buys: WDR, ZTR

There’s really not much to write about, as I only made two stock buys for April. First, I added 100 shares (at $11.75 each) of Virtus Global Dividend & Income Fund (NYSE:ZTR) to my dividend investing portfolio for a total of 300 shares of ZTR. Next I bought 40 more shares of Waddell & Reed …

Dividend Income Report for March 2017

With the end of March and the beginning of April, spring seems to finally be arriving after an unusually harsh winter here in the Pacific Northwest. Trees and flowers are starting to blossom and on weekends I hear the noise of neighbors’ lawn mowers as they give their lawns a needed trimming. Also part of …

My Latest Sale: RSO

Last November, Resource Capital Corp. (NYSE:RSO) announced that it was going to cut its quarterly dividend from 42 cents to 5 cents (-88.1%). Because of this cut, my annual yield for RSO dropped from 9.58% to 1.14%. Ouch! With such a wretched dividend yield, RSO became a good candidate for selling off. Even if sold …
