It’s been a while since I last did a UK dividend stocks watch list update (a whole quarter pretty much!). With all the recent volatility in August and September, and all the personal activity over the summer, I just didn’t feel it was worth doing updates for a while. Plus, we’ve been concentrating on curbing our grocery spending through a self-imposed ‘cut your grocery bill in half‘ challenge (the results were EPIC). So in the meantime, recent months’ trading activity has been just been adding to existing positions where the volatility allowed me to average down on some core holdings such as Royal Dutch Shell (LON:RDSB).

We already own several of these stocks in one or more of our portfolios, but there are a few that catch my eye. However, I am not a financial advisor, so don’t take my word for it! DYOR (do your own research) as will I into each of these. Diageo, RPS, and ITE are catching my eye right now… time to get researching!
What do you think about these stocks? Do any of them catch your eye, or are any of them on YOUR dividend stocks watch list? Let me know, leave a comment below.
