November 2018 Dividends

monopoly_go

December is upon us and the weather is getting colder but the dividends are heating up. yep those dividends keep coming no matter what the weather does or the stock market through all its up and downs the one constant thing is those dividends hitting my account. Lots of them hit my account this month.

November is a slower month but has been growing lately as I add and it is slowly coming up and as of this month is higher than OCT. The big question will it stay higher? we will see as the year pans out next year.

You can see the November buys here.

As you can see i was paid 12 times by 11 companies. That comes out to $43.22 per company. CFFN paid its extra dividend in NOV instead of DEC which pushed this months up. I wont hit $700.00 in a month this year but should sometime next year.

If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 30 is $89.01.  That would  leave me with a nice $386.42 to put towards my bills. But i am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, we brought in $15.84 a day.  This is a 98% increase over last November. Total for year now we have brought in $5275.56 which brings our total per day $15.79. This month continued to put last years total dividend in the rear view mirror. Total lifetime tracked dividends is $16,085.72. Definitely seeing the results as our estimated income for this year stands at $5,755. 15 dollars for this year. The 12 month rolling estimated dividend stands at $6,528.85. You can see the results after time a mix of dividend reinvestment and adding on my own has helped this tremendously. Looking at the chart you can see what percentage of  dividend was this month.  You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.

ABBV Dividend Raise.

image   Nov 2 (Reuters) – AbbVie Inc: ABBVIE – BOARD DECLARED INCREASE IN QUARTERLY CASH DIVIDEND FROM $0.96/SHARE TO $1.07/SHARE.

AbbV is a newer position to the protfolio and it raised its dividend quickly after i bought a few shares. I had bought a total of 16 shares by the time the raise was announced. Some headwinds have depressed the price but im cofident it is a strong company and will continue to pay dividends for years to come.

 

Now the details 16 shares times .11 equates to $1.76 a quarter or $7.04 a year.    Already getting raises for next year and will help out a lot.   Eventually these raises will help put me over the  crossing point to wear i wont have anything to worry about just kick back and collect the dividend.  This will take effect for the Feb 2019 dividend payment.

 

ABBV $7.04

IRM $1.034

2019 total increases $8.074
