As we end one quarter and start another quarter. we look and see how my networth has progressed QOQ.

As you can see from the start to this quarter has been excellant of course that was helped by getting some stocks as gifts this quarter or i would have seen a drop or close to it. totally impressed with this and im hoping my additions to my stock portfolio pay dividends. (See what i did there?).

Till next Quarter hope your networth increases bountifully


Dividend hike O


Yes they did it again. They raised the dividend again. whats not to like about a company that raises its dividend like this. its small but effective and i will take it along with all the others.

SAN DIEGO, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Realty Income Corporation (Realty Income, NYSE: O), The Monthly Dividend Company®, today announced its Board of Directors has declared an increase in the company’s common stock monthly cash dividend to $0.2195 per share from $0.219 per share. The dividend is payable on April 13, 2018 to shareholders of record as of April 2, 2018. This is the 96th dividend increase since Realty Income’s listing on the NYSE in 1994.

Not a big raise but they just constantly raise it by a small bit here and a small bit there and it adds up over time. since i own 31.92 shares of O this comes out to $.19 a year. small but effective.

2018 buy number 4 MO

Altria Group, Inc. is an American corporation and one of the world’s largest producers and marketers of tobacco, cigarettes and related products. It operates worldwide and is headquartered in Henrico County, Virginia.

With that being said i since it is down off its highs i decided to delve in and buy this stock again this is the second time i have bought this stock this year. To make this possible possible i sold to stocks an ETF called EFA for $838.20 a total of 11 shares, i was up about $110.00 and i also sold a preferred stock DDPRB i sold 5.5 shares of it for $563.98 not sure how much i was up on that. As part of the streamlining process of getting better stocks and building a good solid dividend income.

Now the buy, it was for 29 shares of MO for a total of $1,902.91 including commisions. this adds $20.3 a quarter to my dividends and $81.2  a year. This buy gives me 147 shares total of MO.  This buy brings my 12 month rolling prospective dividends to $5533.04. it becomes my third stock and also joins a mutual fund as stocks that pay over $400.00 a year.

FEB 18 Dividend report


Yes i will pass go and collect my money, because i am greedy like that. We are now into the third month of the year March. Where does time go? it is lots of fun watching my dividends hit the register and go kaching kaching kaching.  We are a few weeks away from March Madness starting.

Before we go into the details I hit a milestone with my 100th post this month. this will be my 103rd post.  Always good to hit marks and milestones.

What a great month it is as you can see. 12 good payers paying me. they payed me quite well highest payment for a middle month dividend reinvests 1 new buy and some additions really help. AGNC with that payment went over $200.00 a year in dividends it becomes the it becomes the 9th company to  hit that payout.

This months $333.77  translates to 11.92 dollars a day for the month of FEB. If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup that equals $83.16 that would leave me with $250.61 which would pay my cell and home phone with a little left over. But as usual for now i will invest it all and i ended up with 14 extra shares.

For the year I have brought in $657.57 which equals $11.14 a day. my current projection for the year looks like its about $3,332.85. After next month we will have a better figure and be able to project more accurately.  I am expecting a big dividend haul next month. My 12 month rolling dividend stands currently at $5430.37

How was your month, let me know in the comments below.

Edit:  Had to change the number as i inserted it wrong for the yearly total it is correct now.

percent from the $2.04 per share paid for the last fiscal year. The
