2019 Q1 Net Worth

Its time to examine my net worth. I  Like to do this Quarterly instead of monthly no specific reason  for doing it that way. So i finally transferred my money out of my Morgan Stanley into my Merrill edge account so that is done. The biggest driver will be my stocks  defining my Net Worth as i have very little income coming in so there will not be much change in cash at the banks. I try to keep some extra just in case i need to make a purchase.

My net worth has risen 44% since i started tracking it in 2016 since the end of 2018 it is up 9.4 percent. Slow smart investments help out here.

 

Have you examined your net worth? Has it risen or fallen?

Total from the buys I added $92.77 subtracting the $61.20 gives me a nice $31.57 gain on the month  of course I would like to add $90.00 plus every month with no sells..

I have now added more to my stocks that raise their dividends regularly and will benifit more in the long run.

O Dividend Hike

imageThis hike happened last week so i am a littl late in getting it out but better late than never also working on my taxes so i will be glad when that is done.

SAN DIEGO, March 12, 2019 /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 $0.226 per share from $0.2255 per share. The dividend is payable on April 15, 2019 to shareholders of record as of April 1, 2019. This is the 101st dividend increase since Realty Income’s listing on the NYSE in 1994. The ex-dividend date for April’s dividend is March 29, 2019. The new monthly dividend represents an annualized dividend amount of $2.712 per share as compared to the current annualized dividend amount of $2.706 per share.

 

I own 38 shares of O this will add $.228 to my dividends. The new year is looking good already one of the best starts I have had and it will only get better as more dividend increases come in. The goal one day is to have my dividends pay all my current and future bills right now most months would be covered on bills but in the future i will have more.

So what does this mean for me? It means more money in my pocket or to be used to buy another stock. Who does not like more money.

February Dividends

image Yes Fabulous February dividends are here. Its always great to sit down and let you count my dividends with me. Lets get started.

Busy month for buying and 1 sell which you can read about here.

A fabulous total of $520.03 What is not to like about this? You can compare last years results on the page and also see what percentage each dividend was.

As you can see i was paid 14  times by 14 companies. That comes out to $37.14 per company. New companies ABBV and SBUX helped out this month. The rest is from additional buys and some dividend reinvestment.

If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 28 is $83.16.  That would  leave me with a nice $436.87 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $18.57 a day.  This is a 55.80  percent increase over last February. Total for year now I have brought in $955.74 which brings our total per day $16.19.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $17,719.02. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $5,734.44, 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 2 of 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 from each company this month.  You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.

With $520.03 brought in this month and a total of $955.74 I am 13.09 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. It doesnt look good now but lots of months left to go. My 12 month out  Prospective dividend is now at $6917.33.

 

How was your month? Let me know in the comments below.

 

Main Dividend hike

Main Street Capital Corporation (NYSE:MAIN) (“Main Street”) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors declared regular monthly cash dividends of $0.20 per share for each of April, May and June 2019.  These monthly dividends, which will be payable pursuant to the table below, total $0.60 per share for the second quarter of 2019 and represent a 5.3% increase from the regular monthly dividends paid for the second quarter of 2018 and a 2.6% increase from the regular monthly dividends declared for the first quarter of 2019.

The goal is to gradually add the Supplemental dividend to the regular dividend that MAIN gives out. so a few more raises the next 2 years will most likely be in the books then back to once a year dividend increases.

I own 108 shares of MAIN this will add $6.48 to my dividends. The new year is looking good already one of the best starts I have had and it will only get better as more dividend increases come in. The goal one day is to have my dividends pay all my current and future bills right now most months would be covered on bills but in the future i will have more.
