Dividend Income Report: August 2022

With August over, summer is rapidly winding down. Here in the Pacific Northwest the mornings are cooler, the sun is setting earlier, and the days are becoming merely “very warm” instead of “seriously hot.” I spotted a couple small golden leaves in my back yard last week, so autumn is right around the corner. Regarding …

Dividend Income Report: July 2022

I hope you had a good Independence Day last month. I spent the holiday with my in-laws and had a good time. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we were hit with a hit wave, experiencing 100°+ temperatures but fortunately it didn’t last very long. Regarding the stock market, it continued its volatility streak, but there …

Well, we’re well into summer and so far it’s looking good. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’ve had only a few days that were real scorchers, but July has been mostly moderately hot (glad I don’t live in the southern states). As for the stock market, its wild volatility has subsided a bit, but I …

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 …

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 …

My Latest Trades: VFL, DMF (sells); PNNT, HQL (buys)

June was certainly an unusually busy month for trades, with two sells and two buys. With all the dividend cuts my portfolio has suffered this year, I decided to sell off some low yielding (but tax-free) stock and buy stocks with higher yields.

Winter isn’t over yet, and it’s going to throw a final punch or two before transitioning into spring. As for my …

Dividend Income Report: May 2018

May is now over and after the past couple weeks being cool and overcast here in the Pacific Northwest, summer seems to be picking up steam as we begin June. Yeah! But being a homeowner, that means more outdoor work and maintenance for me. Yay. 😐 Other than that, May was a pretty uneventful month, …
