We are getting closer to the end of the year when the weather turns cold and it is time for another dividend update. I have been making some sales and purchases at the same time as I try to battle school debt at the same time as a change in housing situation that costs me some money up front in order to hopefully help preserve more cash in the long run.

Another month has passed by and we are already halfway through another one. This has been a tough few months for a lot of companies due to being forced to shutdown and it did not help some companies. A few companies were exposed and unable to pay the full dividend rates they previously had, if they did not eliminate it altogether to save cash. Some of the stable companies were able to persevere and pay it and even grow it during this income crisis. September used to be a big month for dividends too, but some of the big ones went from a generous payout to nothing like that. Diversification in income remains important for those of us who are looking to rely on them in retirement someday.

Now that we are halfway through August and getting closer to the end of the year, it is time for another dividend update. Things have been harder since i lost dividend income completely in Disney, Boeing, Delta, Kohls, and a few others that decided to cut back. Still, a diversified portfolio helps weather the pain and reinvesting dividends helps as long as the income has a margin of safety.
