Dividend Builder – October 2020

October dividends are in the barn. Queue up the bringing in the harvest metaphors right along with pumpkin spice everything. October holds the honor of my best dividend payout month. And sure enough, this October produced my best one month total yet. I haven’t broken the lofty three figure barrier yet. I’ll get over that hurdle next October. Although, sneaky December might take the prize. More to come on that….in my December post of course.

Dividend Builder – September 2020

The month of September was not prolific in the traditional dividend department. September did provide the setting for a perk, an adventure, a life dividend. My family and I took advantage of mandatory remote work and we hit the road for a three week, 2,400 mile road trip.

The other major change I made was moving several REIT’s from Dividend Stocks pie to my REIT specific pie. It wasn’t a change that necessarily had to happen, but it’s one of those little things that makes my brain happier.

Dividend Builder – August 2020

The dividends of August are a mild bunch. Not only are they mild, they are a small group too. My three monthly payers, Horizon Technology (HRZN), Realty Income (O), and Stag Industrial (STAG), made their regular appearance. The heavy hitter, batting cleanup and driving in the most funds, is the embattled MLP, Energy Transfer (ET).
