Magnificent May Dividend Report

monopoly_go

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. Total for year now I have brought in $2631.40 which brings our total per day $17.42.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $19394.68. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6,315.36 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, 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 $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.

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 i through April 30, 2019 i have a 1.88%  S&p 500 TR is 3.78%  increase. Increase from Jan 1st -April 30 8.27%  S&p 500 TR is 10.73%  for the month of May it is -6.97% to -6.35%  to the S&P 500 TR

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.

Well who doesn’t like a dividend hike? Have i ever told you i love them? this one is plenty good and a very nice one if i have to mention it twice.

Some wild predictions were made about the dividend increase. this is exactly what i wanted something that can be sustained around that for a few years.  every raise i get gets me closer and closer to the ultimate goal. my first goal is to replace replace my VA disability award. once that happens we will instantly start working towards the next one.
