Dividend Increases For Monday June 4th, 2012 – Electricity & Real Estate

add new items daily dividend investorAfter another rough week of declines in the broader markets, we have two companies announcing dividend increases this morning. When I´m looking to add new positions to my income portfolio, the first place I look is at the list of dividend increases for the year. When ever there are dividend increase announcements, I try to provide a brief outline each company as a first step to determine if they warrant further investigation as a possible addition to the DDI portfolio. However, if you miss a day or want to look back at the dividend trends,  just look at my year to date dividend round up here:  2012 Daily Dividend Increases Report.

I’ve been keeping a little extra cash on hand in the portfolio with the hopes of either creating some new positions or adding to some of the existing DDI holdings as the market takes a bit of a breather this spring. If we see continued weakness this week after today’s bounce, I’ll be looking to deploy some of that cash that’s been sitting on the sidelines.

In addition, I’m going to be looking to sell a few positions which on the surface appears to go against the, “Buy and hold forever.” mantra of the DDI portfolio. However, I’m looking to simplify the tax reporting of the portfolio by moving out of any Limited Partnerships or Royalty Trusts. I’ll discuss this more later, for today we’ll focus on the dividend increases.
