Oct 19 Dividend Review

monopoly_go

Less than 2 months left in the year.  We have our sights set on finishing out the year strong and finishing this out. As i looked around the blogosphere and commented on a comment i came to conclusion that once you start getting a nice dividend its like having a part time job without that much work. Review and buy a few stocks and walla next thing you know you have a nice little bit of dividends coming in.

Yes we are done with October and onto November. While it is warm during the day it is cold  at night. $659.82 is what i bought in this month and it makes this the best non quarter ending month ever for me On the monopoly board you go  around the board and collect money except this money is not fake. It is the real deal and the results i have show it. . As the markets turn one day up and the next day down one thing that is basically constant is the dividends hitting my dividend account. One of the goals is to be able to live off the dividends. While i could right now combined with my military retirement and disability, i am not settling and going forward and going to see how much dividend income i can accumulate before I officially call it quits and start using the dividend income. As you can see I was paid 13 times by 13 companies. That comes out to $41.47 per company. 3 new stock and 3 sells throughout the year for this month.  Buys and re investments have helped bring this 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 $567.75 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in 21.28 a day.  This is a 53.50% increase over last September. Total for year now I have brought in $5955.67 which brings our total per day $19.59.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $22,718.95. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $7146.80 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 3 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.  You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.

With $659.82 brought in this month and a total of $5955.67 I am 81.58 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300.   I still expect to make my goal this year. My 12 month out  Prospective dividend rose from $7600.12 to $7666.06

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 October 31st, 2019 I have a 15.67%  S&p 500 TR is 15.43%  increase. Increase from Jan 1st -October 31st 22.92%  S&p 500 TR is 23.16%  for the month of October it is 3.14% to 2.17%  to the S&P 500 TR.

Jumping July dividends are in the books and we are pleased to show them to you. I love sharing my dividends with you and love reading yours. My goal in this adventure is to get enough to pay all expenses when i take over the house from my MOM we have the house split 50/50 right now.

I have been going through selling some stocks to make my portfolio better which in the long run will benefit me better right now as i generally consider myself a buy and hold guy i do not want to fall in love with a stock where i lose lots of money.  I do not consider buying them a mistake its just that changes in what a want to do with my portfolio and those no longer apply. You can read about the buying and selling here.

As you can see I was paid 12 times by 12 companies. That comes out to $38.91 per company. 6 new stocks.  Buys and re investments have helped make up the difference. $466.95 was a nice haul for the first month of the quarter.

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 $374.88 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in 15.06 a day.  This is a 27.57 percent increase over last July. Total for year now I have brought in $3937.94 which brings our total per day $18.57.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $20701.22. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6750.75 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 3 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.

With $466.95 brought in this month and a total of $3937.94 I am 53.94  percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300.  This quarter it will probably drop a little before surging back in Quarter 4, I still expect to make my goal this year. My 12 month out  Prospective dividend rose from $6941.98 to 7262.14

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.

This my favorite time of the month not only publishing my Dividend report but reading yours also as it takes 2 to make this work and we are all doing something to make a difference in our lives no matter what the goal is.

As we enter the last month of the first half of 2019 yes you read that right we are almost half way through the year already. I want to finish out the year strong and get my portfolio to where it can better withstand A downturn of prolong time so i do not have to sell anything. I have a few more stocks to rearrange do not know when that will happen but i want focus on getting more dividends and dividend growth.

Busy month for buying and selling which you can read about here.

An magnificent total of $473.19, three straight months over $500.00 ended though.  You can compare last years results on the page and also see what percentage each dividend was. this month will be the last month it will be this high but other months will get higher and we hope make up the difference.

As you can see i was paid 12 times by 12 companies. That comes out to $39.45 per company. 3 new stocks replaced 3 that were sold with some good money coming from ABBV. Then other buys and re investments have helped make up the difference.

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 $381.42 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $15.27 a day.  This is a 38.10 percent increase over last May.

With $473.19 brought in this month and a total of $2631.40 I am 36.04 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. I put  some dent in it but i was hoping to be closer to  45 percent there is still lots of time and I am hoping by the end of June to be at 47-50 percent. My 12 month out  Prospective dividend dropped from $6930.04 to 6822.34

I will be making some changes to my Portfolio, not all at once but over time to streamline it into a portfolio that is driven by dividend increases. This will take time and will have some sells and hard decisions. but in the end i will have a better portfolio.

Dec 2018 Dividends

yall-got-any-more-of-them-dividends This is the best month it seems like to bring this MEME out always funny. As the winter has arrived . the stock market was down in DEC but as long as dividends are coming in it does not matter if the stock market is down, up, or sideways. Now it is time to see how much I brought in.

We once again fell just shy with $695.56 So close to $700.00 we did not hit it this year but next year we will in at least 2 month.

You can see the December buys here

As you can see i was paid 21 times by 19 companies. That comes out to $36.60 per company. CFFN paid its extra dividend in NOV instead of DEC which pushed last months 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 $603.49 to put towards my bills. But i am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, we brought in $22.43 a day.  This is a 50.48% 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 $16,763.28. Definitely seeing the results as our final income for this year stands at $5,953. 12 dollars for this year. The 12 month rolling estimated dividend stands at $6,616.60. 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 my bills, 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 this month.  You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.

Mr Market has been very volatile, which has given some good buying oppurtunities which you can see here and here. as you can see thats lots of buys in case you had missed the 2 posts. The buying will slow down as i build upp cash positions but will continue to make buys.  Continue reading “October Dividend Income Report”

August Dividend Report

image My favorite time of the month is here when we start reading peoples dividend reports and see how great you guys did and compute mine so we can see how I did. This month is no exception September is here Pumpkin spice coffee is already at SBUX and is probably best thrown in the trash after you order it but none the less another month is in the books.

August was the first full month that my sharebuilder account had been transferred over to Merrill Edge. So now while its hard to say its now a  Merrill Edge account.

Along with my bigger purchase of KDP earlier in the month which I wrote about I alo purchased a smaller amount of VOD on August 20th for 5 shares with a price of $22.97 for a total of $114.85, commission free. This buy adds $8.75 to my forward dividends. Small buys count  also and I want every dollar to count so we are. smaller buys we will  describe here unless i make a few of them throughout a week.
