March 18 Dividend report


Love this meme it exactly describes this month i believe. Lots of dividends poured into the account this month. and it is nothing to cry about. With the final month of the quarter lets see how i did.

Scrolling down you can see  last years comparisons. This month was helped by dividend reinvestment, buys, and the 3 stocks my mom gifted me. Over 25 shares reinvested.

This months So i this months $683.04 is a big record  and pushes my total dividends recorded to 12,150.77. This was a 96.7 percent increase YOY. Its also the 4th month in a row over $300.00.  If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 31 is 92.07. that leaves me with a hefty 590.97 which pays every bill this month. with a some nice change left  over but our goal isn’t to stop here and continue eventually i will take over the bills for the house and will need more for that time but i will bask in this moment that until then every bill this month is paid. When we divided $683.04 by 31 we get $22.03, just shy of $1.00 an hour. When we take the quarterly amount of $1340.61 and divide by 90 we get $14.89 an hour. Slowly moving up.  through the end of the year i my prospective dividend amount is $4021.83. My twelve month prospective dividends after dividend reinvestment is $5,528.

How did you do this month? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Holy Crap….that amount of increase in dividends is crazy awesome for one year…it has almost doubled!!! Dividend investing can become so boring and requires patience, but when you see increases like that it gets me super excited. Is Durango Joes like a Starbucks? I don’t have them where I am in from in North Dakota haha. Also, are you thinking about transferring out of share builder before it moves to the new account…I have had been looking for bonuses to move to another site but I havent decided yet. I have over 100K to move, but it looks like the bonuses are low right now for many of the companies (looking for like $500 bonus to move).

    1. yes a little patience and some timely dividend and stock gifts help out. Yes I am going with Merrill Edge as they offer free trades. So i will be able to make smaller investments then a few big ones a year and save money on commissions. Thanks for stopping by


  2. Looks like your portfolio is firing on all cylinders. You put up some pretty impressive numbers with your year over year gains and total cash brought in. Those buys, reinvestments, etc. have all helped to push that dividend snowball along. Keep up the good work.

      1. For now I’ll stick with Sharebuilder. Not sure when the ETrade move will take place but will consider Merrill Edge and others too. Kind of sucks that SB will be gone. All I need is low commish and dividend reinvestment and I’ll be happy anywhere.

      2. merrill edge seems good i am in the process of switching if you have over 100,000 between your trading account and a checking at BAC trades are free. plus a bonus of 150 once the money stays in there 90 days. sounds like it will work for me


  3. What a great freaking month. That is some serious progress. The reults are REAL and how does this not motivate you to continue pushing and to keep on fueling your portfolio as much as possible. This was extremely motivating for me and I’m excited to see how the rest of 2018 plays out for you.

  4. D&H, Great month for you bud! I’m enjoying a cup of coffee as I read through some finance blogs. Love the Chappelle meme as well. Keep up the great work!
