My Latest Stock Buys: FGB, AWP, OHI

My Latest Sale: WDR

In late October I learned that Waddell & Reed Financial (NYSE:WDR) would slash their quarterly dividend from 46 cents per share to 25 cents (a 45.7% reduction!) beginning with its Q1 2018 payout on February 1st. This would drastically cut my annual yield for WDR from 10.61% to 5.77%. I normally make 5.00% my “cut …

Overall October was a good month, as I *finally* finished my summer paver brick patio extension project and ended the month by pressure washing the driveway and sealing it (something I’ve been wanting/needing to do for a looong time). Yep, October was …

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 …
