On September 7, 2018, I bought 71 shares of PennantPark Investment Corp. (PNNT ) at $7.74 per share. With its quarterly dividend payout of 0.18 dollars per share, this latest buy has a dividend yield of 9.3% and will pay us $12.96 every quarter. Awesome!

PNNT has been on my stock watch list since the beginning of this Summer, first discovered on dividendquest.com.

There are two simple reasons I like this stock - it has a nice yield of 9.3%  it has dividend payments in January, April, July, and October. For the rest of the year, I'm looking to get a dividend income of $12.96 from this stock, which is about 1.08% from my $1,200 goal for 2018.
