Money in the Trough – Fueling The Dividend Income Machine – July 2017 Buys

Dividend growth stocks

It’s as simple as it sounds… to be a Dividend growth investor, you have to invest money into dividend growth stocks (whether it be individual stocks, ETFs or mutual funds).

While this is easy to say, it’s much harder to do. I’ve struggled, constantly, over the last few years trying to shrug off my second guessing nature that relentlessly tells me I’m paying too much for the dividend stocks I’m buying. I always think a bigger, better deal is just around the corner and I should wait to put my money to work. I mean, why buy a great beaten down stock when it’s yielding 3.2% when I can wait a week or month and get 3.5% instead, right?  You know, cause I can time the market (not really).

Now, part (really all) of this is my fault as my investing style is somewhat a constant bottom fishing endeavor. I’m looking for value, which typically means for me, good companies that have been beaten down from whatever business cycle, bad news or crisis of the moment.  I’m normally buying companies while the stock price is moving down and the Dividend Yield is increasing.

Now, we all know it’s time in the market not timing the market that counts.  So, in order to combat my need for the bigger better deal, I’ve setup minimum amounts that I will invest during the month.   In order to fuel my dividend machine I would like to put at least $2,000 into dividend growth stocks every month from here on out.  However, I still have a large amount of assets to invest from my 401k that I have just recently been able to control and will probably surpass that minimum amount a few-fold.

There should be a line under the ticker symbol in the table below – it’s a link. I’ve been working on a public facing version of my dividend yield graphs I use to not only pick my dividend stocks, but also help me determine prices I’m willing to pay. It’s not complete, so please let me know if you find any bugs.  You can also use the search in the right column under the heading of Real-Time Dividend Yield & Payout Charts.
