Yes we are done with August and onto September. While it is still hot during the day it is cooling down at night and feels great in the morning. That is what we did was we went around the monopoly board and collected money except this money is not fake. it is the real deal and the results i have show it. of course there are a few disappointments but that was to be expected with some of the dividend cuts and selling. As the markets turn one day up and the next day down one thing that is basically constant is the dividends hitting my dividend account.
As you can see I was paid 11 times by 11 companies. That comes out to $44.27 per company. 2 new stocks. Buys and re investments have helped make up the difference. $487.03 less than last year but due to cuts and sells it is expected to be less for awhile but this month will continue to grow. OHI with its tenant problems was risky so i sold it off and the dividend was cut on AGNC and VOD so it was time to dump those 2 also it looks like we will come out good as those were pushed into other months. This will be the last dividend i receive for VOD
If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 31 is $92.07. That would leave me with a nice $394.96 to put towards my bills. I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in 15.71 a day. This is a -10.66% decrease over last August. Total for year now I have brought in $4424.97 which brings our total per day $18.20. Total lifetime tracked dividends is $21,188.25. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6637.45 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 with a little left over, 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 $487.03 brought in this month and a total of $4424.97 I am 60.61 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. This quarter it will probably drop a little before surging back in Quarter 4, I still expect to make my goal this year. My 12 month out Prospective dividend rose from $7262.14 to $7490.12
I have been making some changes to my Portfolio, to streamline it into a portfolio that is driven by dividend increases. The portfolio will be better in the long run because of this.
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
