Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – Growing Dividend Income – April 2017

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I’ve been working hard at growing dividend income the last couple of months.  While I’m not exactly thrilled with the prices i’m paying at the moment (most stocks are very overvalued) I’m picking the best deals I can find.

As I mentioned here, I’m making some larger, more frequent purchases thanks to my 401k getting moved to an account I’m able to control.  Its an exciting time!

So here is a list of the stocks i’m using to grow my dividend income.

Below are some graphic charts from Simply Wall St that show the dividend yield range for the stocks purchased above.

What have you been buying this month?

I'm a dividend growth investor who is aiming to retire early in 4 years at the age of 45. My goal is to live off the income my dividend portfolio and rental property produce exclusively and leave the corporate rat race. I hope you will join me in this journey!


  1. Lots of great buys and it’s still early on in the month. That will add a lot more dividend growth moving forward. Cheers.

      Hi Dividend Daze,

      Very early in the month! I have a bunch of limit orders setup as well… just waiting on them to hit. This could quickly become my biggest investing month ever. Just need the market to cooperate with me.

      Thanks for stopping in and commenting!
