Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – June Dividend Stock Purchases – 2020

Anybody else have a sore neck from watching this market whipsaw back and forth?  Between social unrest and a global pandemic its amazing the market isn’t just going one way – down.   Hopefully, at the end of all of this we’re able to making some lasting changes for a better world.

As a dividend growth investor I try to find the best dividend stock values I can find every month – no matter what’s going on in the world.  Below are the dividend stocks I’ve purchased so far this June.

I keep a running log of every dividend stock I buy which can be viewed in the dividend growth stock purchases page.

So far, I’ve put a little over $4,100 to work with an average yield of 4.1%.  I’ve added almost $175 of yearly forward dividend income this month!

The $PFE, $XOM and $SO purchases were made via dividend reinvestment plans.

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.

All additional purchases made this June will be posted on this page.  I aim to invest $2,500 – $4,000 every month.  Although, last month I invested almost $6,000!

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. DP –

    Love it. I also was buying AFL, never hit my limit price on GD though. I did manage a few shares of PFE, but never am picking up enough. Nice job adding essentially $15 in dividends per month!

      Exactly, never enough shares… I know that feeling well! I have quite a few limits that are still waiting to hit. Who knows what will happen next week with this crazy ride we’re on.

  2. Even i have added some AFL/PRU shares in the last 2 months or so.
    waiting to add more PRU and average down my price.

    Referral here from Dividend Diplomat’s blog, is it just me or is your stock purchases table not visible?

      Uh oh. Nope, not just you. I’ll get it sorted. Thank you for the heads up!

  4. Oh yeah, agree, the markets whipsawing have been incredible, and there are plenty of challenges for the world.
    But on the other hand it’s a good time to test and implement our investment strategies, and here I see a very strong and consistent acquisition process, adding pieces of robust businesses. Congrats and keep it up!
