7 Dividend Increases: September 18-22, 2017

Companies that regularly increase dividends show confidence in the potential growth of future earnings.

I like monitoring dividend increases for stocks on my watch list of dividend growth stocks because I consider such stocks to be candidates for further analysis.

Recently, seven companies on my watch list declared dividend increases, including two of the stocks I own.

10 Dividend Growth Stocks For September 2017

David Fish updates and publishes the CCC list every month. The list is a wonderful source for dividend growth investors. It contains more than 800 companies trading on U.S. exchanges with at least 5 consecutive years of increased dividend payments. The accompanying spreadsheet provides fundamental data.

With my monthly 10 Dividend Growth Stocks series, I identify 10 stocks worthy of further research. To create the list, I trim the CCC list to a manageable number of stocks, rank the trimmed list, and assign a 7-star rating to each stock.

Monthly Review: August 2017

Welcome to the August review of DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks! The goal of these monthly reviews is to share updates to my portfolio and to provide a summary of dividends collected.

DivGro's projected annual dividend income (PADI) increased to $15,353, which means I can expect to receive $1,279 in dividend income per month, on average, in perpetuity.

Of course, with a statement like that, I'm assuming that nothing will change! In actual fact, as a dividend growth investor, I expect the companies I've invested in to continue to pay and to increase dividends! Also, until I retire, I hope to continue to reinvest the dividends I collect... so DivGro's PADI should continue to grow through dividend growth and through compounding.

Options Update: August 2017

My goal with DivGro is to generate a reliable and growing dividend income stream. I invest mainly in quality dividend growth stocks with a track record of paying and regularly increasing dividends.

In June 2016, I started trading options to boost my income from dividends. I sell covered calls and secured puts on dividend stocks I own or would like to own. The options income I collect flows back into DivGro, just like dividends. It provides extra cash to buy more dividend growth stocks.

Through July 2017, I've collected options income totaling about $16,400. Of that total, about $8,800 is secured, meaning I no longer have any obligations to fulfill. My monthly options update serves as a status report on the open options and the obligations I have. I also report on new trades and I provide a running tally of DivGro's options income to date.
