Do you? Because I sure do and I have a good report to give. As we close 2019 its important to look back at what we accomplished what we didn’t accomplish and what we plan to accomplish.
I believe we had an excellent year as far as buys and got a lot bigger and better dividend payers that will grow the dividend good.
As far as our 2019 goals we we invested in quality stocks, we did not get as much dividends as far as dividend growth as we would have liked and we are waiting in anticipation to see if we hit our Bronze goal of $7300 in dividend for the year?
Well we finally did it to a tune of $1,085.56 first comma i have received also this month I blew my Va compensation away which is $879.36 this is the first month i have had more dividends than my VA compensation. This month based on a 24 hour day i bought in $1.45 an hour not bad things keep looking up.
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 $993.49 to put towards my bills. I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $35.01 a day. This is a 56.06 percent increase over last December. Total for year now I have brought in $7487.93 which brings our total per day to $20.51. Total lifetime tracked dividends is $24,251.21. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $8,170.44 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 all 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. The MRCC in the red is in my Roth and you can see that it accounts for 1.9 percent of my income for the month. You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.
With $1,085.56 brought in this month and a total of $7487.93 I am over 100 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. My 12 month out Prospective dividend fell from $8185.67 to $8,170.44
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. The portfolio page has been updated here.
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 through DEC 31, 2019 I have a 23.73% S&p 500 TR is 23.23% increase. Increase from Jan 1st -DEC 31 31.48% S&p 500 TR is 31.49% for the month of December it is 3.31% to 3.02% to the S&P 500 TR.
