August 21 Dividend Review

August is in the books and I have calculated the results. One thing that is good about the market when you are dividend investing is those dividends come in wether the market is up or down. The market has been on a tear lately, which is good for my portfolio. Ticker Dividend
T $214.05
APPL $75.19
MAIN $29.66
O $12.65
OMF $72.80
OMF $364.00
ABBV $227.54
DHI $3.80
USHYX $57.89
Rily $8.50
Rily $25.50
SBUX $31.50
HBI $36.45
Total $1,159.53

You can see the results for themselves. OMF and Rily both paid special dividends which helped me get to $1,159.53 in dividends this month. HBI paid this month instead of September. This is first off month to go over $1,000.00 so I’m pretty excited about these results. 3 payments over $200.00 is pretty good.

This was a good month. Dividend increases this year has been kicking it. I won’t get as many next year. Almost half my rise from $10,000 in forward dividends to where I am now was driven by dividend increases. But I still should get quite a bit. I still have a few stocks that haven’t given an increase in awhile. This month was 104 percent higher than last year. Year over year I am 31.4 percent higher.

In my portfolio the top 10 stocks make up over 50 percent of my portfolio. The 10 spot is battle between DUK and XOM with DUK winning right now SBUX and KR are not that far behind.

Total portfolio value $338,427.37
Forward annual dividend $11,307.57
Trailing 12 months of Dividends $10,766.75 Expected dividend as of 2021 $10,585.14
Net worth as of March $531,103.33
Bought Rily, SBUX, CVX. Those were my main buys this month.
Dividend raises MO, MGIC, NRZ, FDUS
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 $40,300.10 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. I wish I had more dividend increases coming this part of the year. I’m hoping to get some good ones next year also. This year was helped by some cuts from last year so hopefully in a few years. These raises will be back to this current level. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Great stuff Doug.
