First of all taking about dividends don't mean squat when we have a humanitarian crisis and innocent people are being killed for no reason whatsoever.
Other than this war starting, February is my favorite month. Why? "With all the yucky weather and no holidays, you like this?" Why yes. It's the best month of all specifically because I was born in February. And the best month contains the very best day of the year - February 19th.
February 19th is chock full of birthdays of famous people: Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven of Stranger Things), Seal, Smokey Robinson, Copernicus, Benicio Del Toro, Jeff Daniels, Falco, and Justine Bateman.
Most importantly, three left-handed guitarists: Tommy Iommi of Black Sabbath, Dave Wakeling of English Beat, and yours truly - Chickenwizard of that juggernaut Chickenwizard.
I don't play nearly as well as the others....
February is great since I get paid for being alive by 29 different companies I trust with my money.
29 payments totalling $1509.50. It may be my lowest month of the quarter, but I am not complaining. It's a 8.05% increase from last February.
Here are the details:
The biggie was, of course. AT&T (T). The last of the giant payouts by them I believe. But will still be nearly 5% after the spin off coming in a few weeks. I tend to feel things will work out fine.
My goal is to see this 8% annual increase be the smallest of the year. That is my challenge.
