April 2019 Dividends

image Awesome April has come and gone and left us with some dividends to count And counting we will do. as we need to figure out how much dividends we got. The best thing about dividends are they come in no matter if the market is up or down.

 

Busy month for buying and 1 sell and a trim off of GOOG which you can read about  here  .

An Awesome total of $502.68, three straight months over $500.00 What is not to like about this? You can compare last years results on the page and also see what percentage each dividend was.

As you can see i was paid 16 times by 16 companies. That comes out to $31.41 per company.

If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 30 is $89.01.  That would  leave me with a nice $413.58 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $16.75 a day.  This is a 19.61 percent increase over last April. Total for year now I have brought in $2157.91 which brings our total per day $17.98.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $18921.19. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6,473.73 based on this month, through the end of 2019. You can see the results after time a mix of dividend reinvestment and adding on my own has helped this tremendously. This month would pay 3 of my bills, but when i inherit the house i will have more so i want to be able to cover most of those also. Looking at the chart you can see what percentage of  dividend was from each company this month.  You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.

With $502.68 brought in this month and a total of $2157.91 I am 29.56 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. I put a some dent in it but i was hoping to be closer to  35 percent there is still lots of time and I am hoping by the end of June to be at 50 percent or higher we will see. My 12 month out  Prospective dividend dropped from $6978.31 to 6930.04

I will be making some changes to my Portfolio, not all at once but over time to streamline it into a poertfolio that is driven by dividend increases. This will take time and will have some sells and hard decisions. but in the end i will have a better portfolio.

For those that like total return I am  gonna start including it in here, I myself just care about the dividends but some like the total return

Since June 18 when i first moved my money i through April 30, 2019 i have a 9.52 percent S&p 500 TR is 10.83 percent increase. Increase from Jan 1st -April 30 15.66 percent S&p 500 TR is 17.12 percent for the month of March it is 2.69 percent to 4.05 percent to the S&P 500 TR

  2. You can get a lot of Durango Joes coffee cups right there! Excellent month. I’m loving how consistent your dividend income stream is becoming. You’re building a well oiled machine with a lot of great companies giving you cash without lifting a finger. That’s what it is all about right there.

  3. Congrats on having three straight months over $500. I am still working on getting consistent $100 months. Those off months or quarter beginning ones usually stop that trend. Keep those $500+ months coming!

  4. Doug, congrats. April was good to you. 20% increase YOY is killer. April is a dead month for me, hope to fill in this gap soon. Looking forward to a strong May though!

  5. Hey, hey! Over $500 for 3 straight months is tremendous… nice work. MO and NRZ really stand out having delivered over $100 each. I know the forward dividend income took a little hit with the recent adjustments, but I agree that you’ll recover that income in no time.
