With the month half over, it is time to start doing some work and start buying income from the best dividend values that I could find. The trouble is, its not easy when pretty much everything is super expensive. Below are the best dividend deals I jumped on this month (one of them being a bit of a gamble).

On thing that I bought a little extra of is Target. I already own some, but TGT current yield was really tempting. Here are my thoughts on Target. I know times are rough for retailers, but I don’t think brick and mortar is going away… unless Amazon can figure out a way to start delivering things to my door in 30 minutes after ordering.
Also, perhaps I’m just old, but people like going shopping, trying stuff on and enjoying the physical experience of… shopping (to be clear, I’m not one of those people – but know they’re lots of them out there). Personally when I have to choose between Walmart & Target, my shopping preference always skews towards Target. Target shot themselves in the foot with their pick your bathroom stance, but that will fade. I have friends that boycotted the store, but have now begun to shop there again. Also, with Spring & Summer coming up, I suspect we’ll see an uptick in sales as Target always has nice warm weather fashions, at reasonable prices.
Below are some graphic charts from Simply Wall St that show the dividend yield range for the stocks purchased above.
