So the reason behind doing this is I decided to round up as many dividend investors dividend income reports as I could find and rank them based on earnings to see where I stack up against the rest. Certainly we’re all on our own paths unique to our own circumstances and goals, but it’s always interesting to see where other people are at. I also am curious the ideas & purchases the community is making as well.
Equity purchases seem to be a little all over the place this month. However, a recurring theme does seem to be the general consensus that the market is overheated. As such, many folks are either cutting back purchases, focusing on options strategies, or even pulling their entire portfolio out of the market!
Anyway, here we go for the dividend income leaders for September-
1) Dividend Hustler $3,345
Dividend Hustler has decided to listen to his gut and put investing on hold. In fact, he’s liquidated $600k worth of stocks to pay for a condo in cash. This is part of his reset button given that his gut is telling him that a big correction is coming soon. A nice monthly haul, and a good note to go out on until the market implodes.
Activity: A condo!
2) $25,000 Dividends $1,555.65
Activity: XPF etf, Brookfield Renewable Partners, CAP REIT, Boardwalk REIT
3) Dividend Diplomats $380.56 (Bert) + $1,009.48 (Lanny) = $1,390.48
Maybe it’s cheating to put them together as one listing, but there you go.
Activity: Target, Cardinal Health
4) Dividend Earner $1,366.83
Good source if you’re interested in Canadian equities
Activity: Canadian National Railway
5) Dividend Driven $1,357.38
This site uses advanced or remedial technologies that surpass my understanding. I’m not sure. Has a nice dividend snowball.
Activity: I can’t really see what moves he made this month. Maybe I am just not skilled enough to know how to find this on his site.
6) Mr Free at 33 $1,242.42
New. This site picks up where Dividend Mantra left off, with more of a focus on post-FI life.
Activity: Polaris Industries, Inc. Penske Automotive Group (sell), Magna International Inc (sell), Duke Energy Corp, Williams Sonoma
7) Div Gro $1,177
Activity: Eaton Vance Tax-Managed Global Diversified Equity Income Fund, Omega Healthcare Investors, Union Pacific Corporation, Texas Instruments (Sell)
8) DiviCents* $716.88

13) Captain Dividend $402.96

14) Dividend Ten $215.47
As usual, last. From humble beginnings…
