Dividend calendar – what is it good for?
A dividend calendar can be used by investors as a planning instrument and motivator, making it a good option for dividend investors.
Dividend calendars are popular amongst investors. You could almost believe that at ex-date and payment-date, there is a discount on the stock. And at the beginning, I didn’t quite understand why this keyword is searched in different variants more than 10,000 times a month. After all, the stock price reacts to paid dividends by dropping for the same amount (at least in theory).
But this way of thinking is short-sighted. A dividend is the only way for the long-term investor to get cash from his investments because he cannot buy anything from the daily ups and downs on the stock market. From an investor’s point of view, a dividend calendar is a series of paydays on which he can expect cash.
Furthermore, some investors are dependent on their dividend income. And those who aren’t are simply looking forward to the expected cash. Cash flows are an excellent motivator to invest in a disciplined manner over a longer period instead of consuming all available money. And it needs a longer period to invest, because only after several years the compound interest comes to bear, turning an initially manageable dividend into a considerable amount of money.
A good dividend calendar is therefore both a planning instrument and a motivator and can thus be a real help for dividend investors. I guess, I finally got it.
