Dividend Investment Portfolio

///Dividend Investment Portfolio

I attempt to screen and purchase undervalued dividend growth stocks. These companies have increased their dividend for at least 15 years and have a lower than average price to earnings (PE) ratio, a higher operating margin, a low price to book, a reasonable dividend yield and payout ratio.  This is easily my favorite part of my financial empire.

My Dividend Growth Portfolio January Update

I have been dreading writing this post since I already know I screwed up in December.  I gave myself very specific rules when it comes to selling short puts and I think my head got a little too big after a ridiculous month in November when it comes to investment income. My December 2016 Investment Activity My Undervalued Dividend Growth Stock Purchases December, like most months, I made my normal $500 purchase plus my option income for the previous month($506): On 12/6/2016 I bought 15 Shares of Aflac (AFL) at $68.75 ($1,038.32 purchase). This added to the 10 shares I already owned. [...]

December 2016 Watch List

With my crazy increase in naked put premiums last month I was excited to get my watch list created, so I can buy my monthly purchase plus my extra amount made.  Like last month, I excited to create this list as it was we hit another market high today.  If the old adage is to buy low and sell high, why would I be excited to make a purchase now? Just because the market is flying high doesn't mean there is not value to be found.  Just maybe I can find something that hasn't increased with the broad market. As a reminder, every month I [...]

November 2016 Undervalued Dividend Growth Watch List

I was absolutely excited to do this month's undervalued dividend growth watch list.  The market is ROARING with the election of Trump, so I figured if I could find something that has been missed (or entirely ignored by big money) then it would a great long term hold.  As a reminder, every month I take those stocks that have increased their dividends for 20+ years and manually screen them to create a watch list for my monthly purchase. The goal is simple, I try to find stocks that have a two decade history of increasing the cash flow given to investors that may [...]
