Dividend Growth Stocks

Money in the Trough – Dividend Growth Stocks Purchases – September 2016

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

This month’s slight pull back gave me the opportunity to add a few new dividend growth stocks to the portfolio.  As a dividend income investor I seek to add stocks that I believe will continue to grow their dividend yearly.  These purchases are just that, some long-term holds that I believe will continue to grow their dividend significantly over the next decade or five.

My Dividend Growth Stocks Purchases – September 2016

Weyerhaeuser is not a typical dividend growth stock and the WY dividend is a little lite for a REIT that I would normally want to own.  However, I’ve had a desire to buy some timber land for the last few months.   Well, I finally decided that it isn’t the right time to purchase a loblolly pine forest, as I don’t know enough about it, don’t have the cash at the moment, and can’t find any good data (if you have any insight about the tax benefits & ROI of a small timber land owner [30 – 50 acres] please share).  So, I did the next best thing, I purchased a few shares of the largest timber company in the world.  Now I kinda own a whole lot of trees, that’ll do for now.

I will keep this page updated with any additional dividend growth stocks purchases I make this month.

My dividend portfolio has been updated with these buys.

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!

      Hi DL,

      I think the plumb creek acquisition was great. They own a LOT of timber land now. WY will be a nice long term hold, especially if new home construction keeps up (which I’m seeing a lot just starting now in my area). All those new wood framed houses need… wood.

  1. Nice to see the buys keep coming in as many of our fellow dividend bloggers have been hitting the sell button quite a bit. Always nice to take advantage of a dip in prices. None of those names mentioned above are in my portfolios. Tanks for sharing.

      Hi DivHut,

      It’s been more difficult to pull the trigger with these high valuations, but I’m making do with the best that I see.

      Thank you for dropping in!

  2. Looks good and you are adding to your dividend total. 53.00 gets you that much closer. I have a nice position in ford.

      Hi Doug,

      It does indeed. This clearly is an endurance race… there will be no sprinting to the end. Let’s both keep our fingers crossed that Ford keeps performing the way it has for the last few years!

      Thank you for dropping in!
