August 2022 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Another month down and another report to give. I love writing these and reading yours. It looked like for a bit the market was going to surge higher but has ended the month on a down note. That is ok because lower prices mean more shares. More shares means more dividends as long as there is no cuts.

Ticker Dividend
APPL $80.91
OMF $157.70
ABBV $272.82
DHI $18.90
USHYX $66.60
Rily $123.00
NXST $2.70
SBUX $61.25
Total $783.88

Not a lot of dividend paying companies but the amount packs a punch. Next year will be over $800.00 and I’m stocked. Friday August 26 my forward dividends hit over $12,000 again. Don’t plan on any sells so it should grow at a nice clip.

This month was lower than last year because of a special dividend a -32.39 percent lower. Without the special dividend it would be a 1.79 percent increase.

Portfolio review my portfolio value fell by 2.67 percent. Dividend raise was only 1 MO which added over $55.00 to my forward dividends. My top 10 was fairly steady with the 2 swaps being GOOG moved up to the 3 spot and ABBV falling to the 4 spot USHYX moved up to the 7 spot and dropped MO to the 8 spot. Still 13 stocks above $10,000. I once dreamed of getting 1 stock above $10,000 now to have that many seems surreal. Next year it could be even more and continue to climb as I add to positions. My number 2 spot is occupied by PEG which my mom inherited from my grandma and then gave it to me. When she gave it to me it had 408 shares. This was in 2019 it now has 475 shares. The value when she gave it to me was around $19,500 it is now worth around $30,000. Without adding anything except the reinvested dividends it has grown nicely.

Nothing to complaign about really my portfolio will grow again I just have to keep adding to it. One of these months we will have a month like November 2020 and the portfolio will explode upward again.

As I look forward to September I should get around $1350.00 in dividends.

July 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

July is done and gone. Looks like after being down the markets came back big the last 3 days of the month. But no matter what my dividends hit the account. My July dividend delivered results.

Ticker Dividend
KO $42.68
PPL $38.93
MO $302.86
MPW $30.46
AQN $43.15
KDP $30.56
USHYX $70.59
NRZ $165.15
ONL $0.50
Amount $724.88

Mo really delivered. What can I say these results speak for themselves. PPL cut its dividend then raised it this last quarter. If they can deliver 10 percent dividend raises for the next couple of years that position will grow. I’m just excited about what this will look like in OCT when I have 2 semi annual dividends pay.

This months dividend is 9.7 percent higher than last July. On a year over year the dividend so far is 20 percent higher. One of my goals is to try to keep it around 20 percent or higher.

My purchases this month were MGIC and RILY those were my main purchases. No stock sales this month. GOOG did a split so I own a lot more shares of it. DUK, WBA, and R raised their dividend. No cuts this month.

My portfolio gained back some of the losses from this year by gaining around 8 percent. Looking at my top 10 KR fell out and was replaced by BAC. I am now back to 13 stocks over $10,000 dollars. Once I dreamed of getting 1 stock to $10,000 to have that many over that is like wow. Almost like a kid in a candy store. AAPL is my largest position by far at over $50,000 just by itself hopefully the can continue to grow even if not at the pace it has the last couple of years. Even at its large size I still add to it from time to time.

Looking forward to August I should receive about $780.00 in dividends which is less than last year but I had 2 stocks pay a supplemental dividend which won’t be paying this year.

$50,000 Dividends Received.

Since I started investing the total amount of dividends I have received is over $50,000. I started investing in stocks in 2001 right before 9/11. It’s been a journey I took some years off and did not know what I was doing when I started.

It hasn’t been easy no decision made when a dividend cut is announced or a dividend stopped is. Even mergers and acquisitions are tough to think about when it comes to keeping that stock.

$50,000 in cash could buy a lot. Down payment on a vehicle, house, home repairs, vehicle repairs. But alas they got all reinvested back into other stocks.

I know it won’t take me nearly as long to get my next $50,000. I achieved this milestone in June. With my forward dividends getting ready to hit $12,000 it will take a little over 4 years by the time 4 years hit I should be at my second $50,000.

In about 2 years barring a economic collapse I should be bringing in close to $1000.00 a year in dividend raises.

How much dividends have you collected since you started?

June 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Half the year is done. I would say the market goes up and the market goes down but it seems the market is going down. But that’s ok I can buy more shares of stocks I want.

Great month for dividends as it was a record haul. It was greatly helped by the LYB special dividend. Dividend growth has been amazing and should continue to spur growth each year. I think within the next 3-4 years I’ll be pushing over $1000.00 a year in dividend growth just itself which will be remarkable.

This month was 30.45 percent higher than last June. This quarter was 17.63 percent higher than last year’s Quarter. Year over year I am 21 percent higher than last year.

Dividend raises from TGT, PPL, KR, and BAC accounted for an extra $78.16 dollars a year to my dividends. TGT, and KR had some killer dividend growth this year.

My net worth fell from $600,000 to $538,000 which is a negative 10.2 percent similar drop to 2020 and my networth recovered nicely from that so hopefully the same results will occur.

As far as the portfolio goes yes it did drop and I’m down for the year but I’m buying more dividends with each purchase so it’s a win-win situation. The top 10 saw MO drop from 6 to 8 position and XOM rose to the 6 position. KR fell from the 10 spot and was replaced by DUK. The top 10 spots make up 58 percent of my portfolio.

MAY 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Another month down and we are entering June. Where does time go? Last week the market snapped a long losing streak but still ended up down for the month. But you know what? My dividends come rolling in wether the market is up or down.

Ticker Dividend
APPL $80.10

NXST $0.90
Dividends $765.97

Sold T before the cut and was concerned I wouldn’t be able to beat last year but I did barely so this is a win win for me. I love the way this is growing.

My portfolio value was up about a bit over last month but down still from the beginning of the year. CVX, XOM, and MO were big gainers in my top 10. I currently have 13 stocks over $10,000. I remember when MO was the closest one and it was something I looked forward to now MO is my 5th highest and hanging on by a thread. My newest over $10,000 club member is VLO. It made a huge push to get up there. On the outside looking in is SBUX, which could rejoin the $10,000 club with some good growth this month.

This months dividends was 1.17 percent higher than last May. YOY it is 18.95 percent higher than last year. I would like that to hit higher but with some of my sells it won’t be easy. But I positioned myself for good dividend growth next year and beyond.

Had 3 dividend raises AQN, FLO, and LYB with LYB giving us a $5.20 special dividend. That will help my June income. The regular dividends increased by $31.20. To get that dividend I would have to add $1019.6 dollars to get that equivalent.

April 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Another month finished and another month I get to report my dividends and read all of yours. I enjoy sharing my dividend journey with you.

April was a month that saw the markets go up and down but ended the month down. Down markets are good for those in the accumulation stages as your cash can buy more stocks. I love buying more stocks.

Another month another great haul of dividends. I sold Main and bought Goog, and R along with smaller purchases of other stocks. I sold NRZ in my taxable and bought it back in my Roth.

My portfolio dropped a bit at the end of April. But that’s okay because money i add will buy more stocks. Just some spot swap in my top 10 no newcomers. I currently have 33 dividend paying assets. I am looking forward to what May brings.

March 22 Dividend and Portfolio Report

Here we are end of month 3 and quarter 1 of 2022. The market has continued to be up and down but I like that as I buy when I have cash so it doesn’t matter if the market is up or down. Even with the market being down in the last day of the month my Portfolio Value closed at a record high.

When I wasn’t working I bought some reits and BDC and was content with them in my taxable. Then I got a job and opened a Roth. The plan was to just sell each individual stock and move the money into the Roth then buy back that stock or something in the Roth. Well GOOG announced a split so I hurried that plan along and am currently selling them and buying GOOG and other dividend stocks though I did move some of one into the Roth. After next month I will only have 1 more to sell but it will be going into the Roth. But it will be sold at different times to put into the Roth.

My Networth crossed over the $600,000 mark. My Portfolio is closing in on $400,000 mark, sooner or later I will hit it. Over all I’m very pleased, building this up stock by stock.

Feb 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

February has ended that means we are 2/12 of the way done with the year. Bring a shorter month means it ended faster and the report can get out sooner.

As you can see this was a great month. T won’t be on the next time as I sold it with no regrets. 9 dividend payouts ABBV is a monster and should continue to grow at a nice pace. This will be my last payout from O till I rebuy it in my Roth. I used the proceeds to buy a share of Goog. With them announcing a 20-1 split I’d like to up my amount a bit so some plans have changed. I am still a dividend growth invested and will continue to be.

This was a good month for dividend raises as I received 5 of them the bad side is 1 cut to PPL.

AAPL, PEG, GOOG, MSFT, USHYX, MO, XOM, BAC, CVX, and KR are my top 10 stocks all over 10k in each one. A few years ago my goal was to just get stocks to 10K now with that obliterated I keep adding. 11 stocks over 10K and another 1 knocking on the door. Most of the top 10 is down a little which allows me to add and collect more dividends. Even though my portfolio value dropped again I know it will rise again and higher than my previously highest close. Time is on my side.

January 22 Dividend And Portfolio recap

Welcome back as a new year is under way and month 1 is complete. I am going to run down my dividends, and an over view of my portfolio. The best part of dividend investing is watching my dividends come in.

Ticker Dividend

A great month to start the year. MPW, AQN and part of NRZ are in my Roth. I plan to move the rest of NRZ over to the Roth in the coming years. I plan on moving MAIN and O into my Roth over the next few years also. Last Jan I started in the negative this year was a 23 percent increase.

I sold T and bought DHI, RILY, OMF, SBUX, ABBV, AAPL. It was a tough decision but had to be made. My goal in this move is to get better dividends and growth over the long run.

As far as my Top 10 stocks the bottom of it was ever changing SBUX was in there but the recent drop and rise from CVX pushed them in the top 10 to replace T. My portfolio value fell a little, the dividends dropped but I think long term this portfolio will be built to withstand major drops. with the loss of T my portfolio number of stocks stands at 36 stocks which includes 1 mutual fund and one non dividend payer

December 21 Dividend and Portfolio review

Wow as we close out 2021 and enter 2022 it is time to look at my dividends and portfolio over the last year.

Last year I started the year with a net worth of $469,714.13 and finished with $583,000.49. An incredible run for year almost $120,000 dollar gain that is 24.11 percent increase from last year.

Last year my total portfolio value ended at $269,969.82 this year it ended at $370,530.36 which is a 37.24 percent increase.

As you can see my dividends came in at a hefty number and a small 7.61 percent increase over last year. For the quarter I hauled in $3,146.07 which is a 21.83 percent increase. YOY was a 26.70 percent gain in dividends. The big increase in dividends was helped by almost $800 dollars in dividend increases. I won’t get that in 2022 but I want to put myself in position to get that amount again in the near future.

Looking at my portfolio I have 36 stocks and 1 mutual fund. Of those 13 of them are over $10,000.00 dollars in value. I have 2 stocks that pay over $1000.00 a year. Another stock PEG will join that group with its dividend raise in FEB. then it will be awhile before any other stock joins that club. With these results I am very pleased. I never imagined the gains I would be getting I don’t expect a repeat of this year but high single digit gains in portfolio value and net worth are most likely scenarios going forward. Consistently is the key.
