November 19 Dividend Review

imageLess than 1 month left in the year.  We have our sights set on finishing out the year strong and finishing this out.  I bought in $446.70 this month. 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 10 times by 10 companies. That comes out to $44.67 per company.  Some dividend reinvestment and additions helped bring this up though it still droopped but that was expected

An addendum to last month I surpassed last years dividend with my last dividend recieved in OCT.

 

If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 30 is $89.10.  That would  leave me with a nice $357.6 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in 14.89 a day.  This is a 53.50% increase over last September. Total for year now I have brought in $6402.37 which brings our total per day down to $19.16.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $23165.65. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6984.40 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 $446.70 brought in this month and a total of $6402.37 I am 87.70 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 $7666.06 to $8185.67

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 Nov 30, 2019 I have a 19.76%  S&p 500 TR is 19.62%  increase. Increase from Jan 1st -Nov 30 27.27%  S&p 500 TR is 27.63%  for the month of November it is 3.14% to 3.63%  to the S&P 500 TR.

August 2019 Dividend Review

monopoly_goYes we are done with August and onto September. While it is still hot during the day it is cooling down at night and feels great in the morning.  That is what we did was we went around the monopoly board and collected money except this money is not fake. it is the real deal and the results i have show it. of course there are a few disappointments but that was to be expected with some of the dividend cuts and selling. 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.

As you can see I was paid 11 times by 11 companies. That comes out to $44.27 per company. 2 new stocks.  Buys and re investments have helped make up the difference. $487.03 less than last year but due to cuts and sells it is expected to be less for awhile but this month will continue to grow. OHI  with its tenant problems was risky so i sold it off and the dividend was cut on AGNC and VOD so it was time to dump those 2 also it looks like we will come out good as those were pushed into other months. This will be the last dividend i receive for VOD

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 $394.96 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in 15.71 a day.  This is a -10.66% decrease over last August. Total for year now I have brought in $4424.97 which brings our total per day $18.20.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $21,188.25. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6637.45 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 $487.03 brought in this month and a total of $4424.97 I am 60.61  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 $7262.14 to $7490.12

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.

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 August 31st, 2019 i have a 7.38%  S&p 500 TR is 10.91%  increase. Increase from Jan 1st -August 31st 14.11%  S&p 500 TR is 18.34%  for the month of August it is -2.21% to -1.58%  to the S&P 500 TR.

Jan 2019 Buys

Always have money burning holes in my account so always need to buy something LOL. January was not as active as buying  as the last few months and i do not expect the next few months to be that active but steady and forward with small concise buys.

  1. First buy was MGIC had tried to buy some  late last year and think i did get a small buy in but  some times it was hard as the spreads were to wide as i have to buy it with a limit order.  I bought on 01/16/2019 31 shares at $8.00 a share for a total of $248.00. This will add to $8.83 to my dividends.
  2.  The second buy was KO on 01/18/2019 I bought 5 shares  at $47.67 for a total of $238.35 this will add $7.80 to my dividends.
  3. My third buy was a new one and it was DAL  so on 01/22/2019  I dipped my little toe in and bought some i bought 3 shares at $47.51 for a total of $142.53, this will add $4.20 to my dividends.
  4. My fourth buy was MO i have consistently bought this over the the years and figured on a dip why not lower my cost basis some. On 01/22/2019  I bought 3 shares at $45.54 for a total of $136.61 this will add $10.8 to my dividends.
  5. My fifth buy on 01/23/2019 i bought more DAL  1 share at $47.08 for $47.08 this will add $1.40 to my  dividends
  6. My 6th buy i bought another one i have bought over the years on 01/23/2019 i bought BAC and i bought 4 shares at $28.73 for $114.92 this will add $2.40 to dividends.
  7. On 01/25/2019 my 7th buy i bought 3 shares of ABBV at $80.17 for a total of $240.51 this will add $12.84 to my  dividends.
  8. On 01/28/2019 i bought 3 shares of AZZ at $43.66 for a total of $130.98 this will add $2.04 to my dividends.
  9. My final buy was on 01/28/2019 also CFFN 8 shares at $13.60 for a total of $108.77  this will add $2.72 to my dividends.

So it was a busy buying month in hindsight, I spent a total of  $1407.75 buy pure quality high grade stocks that will pay me dividends for years to come. I added $53.03 in future dividend income. Have you bought anything lately let me know in the comments.
