Jan 23 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Well Jan is over and the dividends are accounted for. The market goes up the market goes down but those dividends keep rolling in. They rolled right in and got the year started right.

Ticker Dividend
PPL $39.38
MO $336.67
MPW $34.54
KDP $37.20
USHYX $96.09
RITM $229.39
Total $773.27

Not a lot of companies but they pack a punch. A big punch. PPL cut it’s dividend then gave us a raise again so it’s lower than last year but overall I’m ahead. This month was 10.3 percent higher than last years dividend.

You can see the Top 10 above PEG and ABBV swapped places, MSFT moved up one and USHYX moved up 1, Mo dropped 2. Top 10 is still a high percentage of my overall portfolio. Nothing else is threatening to join the top 10 at the moment.

Overall pretty pleased with this month. Nice gain for the month. Purchases were PPL, AAPL, WBA, TROW, KR, NEE, CHRYY, FDUS. Those were my main buys this month

Dividend raises were impactful this month CVX, NXST, and VLO. First time VLO raised since 2020. This month $53.08 added in future dividends. Total for year is $107.79. Seems like I’m off to a good start in the dividend raise category this year. Hope it can continue.

My portfolio grew by $20,000 this month hopefully the growth can continue. But if not I’ll stack more dividends at a lower price. Looking forward to next month, dividends will be less but should grow the rest of the year barring any dividend cuts.

Total portfolio value $387,989.61

December 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

The year is ending. The market was down this year and even went down on the last day. The good news is my dividends continue to roll in. My portfolio was down just a smidgeon this year but I’m not worried, as long term it is set for success.

Ticker Dividends

TROW $8.40
PEG $259.14
BAC $76.34
Total Dividend $1,512.74

This is my second highest month ever. The highest was June of 22. The 3rd highest was March of 22. I edged out March by about $2.00. The amazing thing is a $300 dollar special dividend was paid in June and I think I could blow past the June 22 total in June 2023. 4 dividends paid over $100.00. My main thing now is building more up than out. My 5 highest paying dividends account for almost half the monthly income.

This months dividend was 13 percent higher than last December. Quarter 4 of 22 was 2.84 percent higher than quarter 4 of 21. Year over year was 8.9% higher.

This month in the ROTH bought FDUS MPW and RITM. In taxable bought MSFT, KDP, KR, BAC, MGIC, AAPL, RILY, TROW. For the year including dividends recieved as cash I invested around $21,000 just in the taxable.

In the top 10 USHYX went from number 9 to number 8. SBUX jumped back in pushing BAC outside the top 10. All top 9 positions are over $15,000 dollars. Top 10 stocks make up 61.68% of my portfolio. Never did I imagine this when I started it just blows my mind. Brick by brick is how it is done.

Total dividend raises for the year was $511.95. Including the PPL dividend cut. I sold out of T before the Dividend cut or I would have had hardly anything. Hopefully my portfolio can become dividend driven and dividend raises will help bolster further growth in my dividends. Someday I see the day where my dividend raises are over $1000,00 a year. That would really drive my portfolio.

OCT 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Oct is in the books 10 months down and 2 to go and the dividends keep rolling in no matter what the market does.

Total $910.03

As you can see I pulled in $910.03 dollars I’m extremely excited about this. Next September will be real close to $1,000.00. This is progressing nicely and building a nice portfolio that covers my bills now and in the future.

My portfolio value rose by over $30,000.00, it is still less than when the year began but gains like that I love. I also like lower prices so I can buy more stocks also.

3 dividend raises were V, XOM, and ABBV. XOM has been on a tear and it has really risen this year.

Top 10 had lots of changes this month ABBV swapped places for the the second spot with PEG, BAC rentered the 10th spot pushing SBUX out. MO moved from 8 to 6 spot. MSFt fell from 6 to 7 spot. CVX moved from 9 to 8 and USHYX fell from 7 to 9. Top 10 makes up the majority of my portfolio that’s ok though.

Bought WBA, KR, DHI, NXST, DUK. Wide range of buys this month

This OCt dividend income was 6.24 percent higher that last OcT. Year over year so far is 10.81 percent I would like it higher but I will take it. Looking forward to November my dividend income will drop as to special dividends being paid out last year. I should bring in about $801

September Dividends and Portfolio Review

September is done and gone. We have completed 3 Quarters of the year. Time flies when you are collecting dividends. The market dropped big time in September. But my dividends came in like clockwork.

Total $1,415.45

As you can see September was a good month very happy with it. This September Was 9 percent higher than last year. Quarter over quarter is negative 6.2 percent. This was due to some special dividends last August. Year over year is 11.28 percent. Close to the 15 percent I want to maintain. Hopefully we can finish year around that.

Portfolio value Dropped a bunch. Net worth dropped. But what goes down must come up again. Had 2 raises this month MSFt and SBUX. Purchase AMZN, FDUS, AQN, TROW, and DHI. SBUX entered the top 10 holdings bumping BAC. My 2 newest stocks paid for the first time TGT and Trow.

Looking forward to OCT I should be around $900.00 dollars for the month

June 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Half the year is done. I would say the market goes up and the market goes down but it seems the market is going down. But that’s ok I can buy more shares of stocks I want.

Great month for dividends as it was a record haul. It was greatly helped by the LYB special dividend. Dividend growth has been amazing and should continue to spur growth each year. I think within the next 3-4 years I’ll be pushing over $1000.00 a year in dividend growth just itself which will be remarkable.

This month was 30.45 percent higher than last June. This quarter was 17.63 percent higher than last year’s Quarter. Year over year I am 21 percent higher than last year.

Dividend raises from TGT, PPL, KR, and BAC accounted for an extra $78.16 dollars a year to my dividends. TGT, and KR had some killer dividend growth this year.

My net worth fell from $600,000 to $538,000 which is a negative 10.2 percent similar drop to 2020 and my networth recovered nicely from that so hopefully the same results will occur.

As far as the portfolio goes yes it did drop and I’m down for the year but I’m buying more dividends with each purchase so it’s a win-win situation. The top 10 saw MO drop from 6 to 8 position and XOM rose to the 6 position. KR fell from the 10 spot and was replaced by DUK. The top 10 spots make up 58 percent of my portfolio.

MAY 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Another month down and we are entering June. Where does time go? Last week the market snapped a long losing streak but still ended up down for the month. But you know what? My dividends come rolling in wether the market is up or down.

Ticker Dividend
APPL $80.10

USHYX $76.27

NXST $0.90
Dividends $765.97

Sold T before the cut and was concerned I wouldn’t be able to beat last year but I did barely so this is a win win for me. I love the way this is growing.

My portfolio value was up about a bit over last month but down still from the beginning of the year. CVX, XOM, and MO were big gainers in my top 10. I currently have 13 stocks over $10,000. I remember when MO was the closest one and it was something I looked forward to now MO is my 5th highest and hanging on by a thread. My newest over $10,000 club member is VLO. It made a huge push to get up there. On the outside looking in is SBUX, which could rejoin the $10,000 club with some good growth this month.

This months dividends was 1.17 percent higher than last May. YOY it is 18.95 percent higher than last year. I would like that to hit higher but with some of my sells it won’t be easy. But I positioned myself for good dividend growth next year and beyond.

Had 3 dividend raises AQN, FLO, and LYB with LYB giving us a $5.20 special dividend. That will help my June income. The regular dividends increased by $31.20. To get that dividend I would have to add $1019.6 dollars to get that equivalent.

March 22 Dividend and Portfolio Report

Here we are end of month 3 and quarter 1 of 2022. The market has continued to be up and down but I like that as I buy when I have cash so it doesn’t matter if the market is up or down. Even with the market being down in the last day of the month my Portfolio Value closed at a record high.

When I wasn’t working I bought some reits and BDC and was content with them in my taxable. Then I got a job and opened a Roth. The plan was to just sell each individual stock and move the money into the Roth then buy back that stock or something in the Roth. Well GOOG announced a split so I hurried that plan along and am currently selling them and buying GOOG and other dividend stocks though I did move some of one into the Roth. After next month I will only have 1 more to sell but it will be going into the Roth. But it will be sold at different times to put into the Roth.

My Networth crossed over the $600,000 mark. My Portfolio is closing in on $400,000 mark, sooner or later I will hit it. Over all I’m very pleased, building this up stock by stock.

January 22 Dividend And Portfolio recap

Welcome back as a new year is under way and month 1 is complete. I am going to run down my dividends, and an over view of my portfolio. The best part of dividend investing is watching my dividends come in.

Ticker Dividend

A great month to start the year. MPW, AQN and part of NRZ are in my Roth. I plan to move the rest of NRZ over to the Roth in the coming years. I plan on moving MAIN and O into my Roth over the next few years also. Last Jan I started in the negative this year was a 23 percent increase.

I sold T and bought DHI, RILY, OMF, SBUX, ABBV, AAPL. It was a tough decision but had to be made. My goal in this move is to get better dividends and growth over the long run.

As far as my Top 10 stocks the bottom of it was ever changing SBUX was in there but the recent drop and rise from CVX pushed them in the top 10 to replace T. My portfolio value fell a little, the dividends dropped but I think long term this portfolio will be built to withstand major drops. with the loss of T my portfolio number of stocks stands at 36 stocks which includes 1 mutual fund and one non dividend payer

December 21 Dividend and Portfolio review

Wow as we close out 2021 and enter 2022 it is time to look at my dividends and portfolio over the last year.

Last year I started the year with a net worth of $469,714.13 and finished with $583,000.49. An incredible run for year almost $120,000 dollar gain that is 24.11 percent increase from last year.

Last year my total portfolio value ended at $269,969.82 this year it ended at $370,530.36 which is a 37.24 percent increase.

As you can see my dividends came in at a hefty number and a small 7.61 percent increase over last year. For the quarter I hauled in $3,146.07 which is a 21.83 percent increase. YOY was a 26.70 percent gain in dividends. The big increase in dividends was helped by almost $800 dollars in dividend increases. I won’t get that in 2022 but I want to put myself in position to get that amount again in the near future.

Looking at my portfolio I have 36 stocks and 1 mutual fund. Of those 13 of them are over $10,000.00 dollars in value. I have 2 stocks that pay over $1000.00 a year. Another stock PEG will join that group with its dividend raise in FEB. then it will be awhile before any other stock joins that club. With these results I am very pleased. I never imagined the gains I would be getting I don’t expect a repeat of this year but high single digit gains in portfolio value and net worth are most likely scenarios going forward. Consistently is the key.

This month was 15.1 percent higher than last September. This quarter is 38.8 percent higher than last year. Year over year is 28.64 percent higher. My portfolio value dropped by but my Net worth went up so all is good as those dividends came in and will keep coming in.
