May Dividend and Portfolio Review

May has ended and it is time to look over my portfolio and dividends I received.

As far as the portfolio goes it was a bland month with it being up by less than $1000.00 dollars. I did add one new position. Bringing my total to 39 wonderful stocks. 38 of those stocks currently pay a dividend. The one new stock was RILY capital. It is my smallest allocation so far at .31 percent of the portfolio. The largest allocation is AAPL at 13.6 percent.

Ticker Dividend
T $214.05
APPL $75.06
ABBV $225.05
MAIN $29.22
O $12.62
SBUX $31.50
USHYX $60.96
OMF $65.80
DHI $3.80
RILY $6.50
RILY $32.50
Dividend $757.06

As you can see I had a fantastic month. 10 companies paying me 11 times. Most of my income comes from ABBV and T but some others are not to shabby.

This months dividend is 41.7 percent higher than last years May dividend. Total dividend for 5 months is 24.8 percent higher than last year

Total portfolio value $313,233.19
Forward annual dividend $10,779.68
Trailing 12 months of Dividends $9869.75 Expected dividend as of 2021 $9567.57
Net worth as of March $503,169.05
Bought CVX, OMF, RILY, HBI Those were my main buys this month.
Dividend raises LYB, FLO, KDP
Future goals
Future portfolio value of $400000.00
Forward annual dividends of $15,000.00
Future net worth $750,000
This month I went over $37,300 in lifetime dividends.
As I wrap this months report up I’m very pleased with everything. This shows that no matter what you can do the same as I have done and the earlier you start the better off you will be. Just constant buying good quality stocks that raise their value and raise their dividends.

  1. The progress looks great, Doug. Your YoY growth was really impressive. Keep doing that and watch your portfolio take off.
    I see you are approaching $10K in actual dividends for a year. Could 2021 be the year? I got a nice surprise with the special dividend announcement from TROW. That will certainly be a shot in the arm toward meeting my annual dividend goal.
    How will you be handling the reduction in T dividend income in the coming months? Do you think you’ll just maintain your T position and make up the lost income over time?

    1. Yeah I will get over $10,000 in dividends this year
      I don’t own Trow but have looked at it. I was thinking about selling T if it hit above $33.00 and buying below $30.00. Since it’s not swinging as much I will buy some more and then see what I get from the spin off. And most likely sell the spin off as it’s not likely it will pay a dividend for awhile but most likely will deliver value after the spin off. Thanks for stopping by
