April 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Another month finished and another month I get to report my dividends and read all of yours. I enjoy sharing my dividend journey with you.

April was a month that saw the markets go up and down but ended the month down. Down markets are good for those in the accumulation stages as your cash can buy more stocks. I love buying more stocks.

Another month another great haul of dividends. I sold Main and bought Goog, and R along with smaller purchases of other stocks. I sold NRZ in my taxable and bought it back in my Roth.

My portfolio dropped a bit at the end of April. But that’s okay because money i add will buy more stocks. Just some spot swap in my top 10 no newcomers. I currently have 33 dividend paying assets. I am looking forward to what May brings.

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.

Feb 22 Dividend and Portfolio Review

February has ended that means we are 2/12 of the way done with the year. Bring a shorter month means it ended faster and the report can get out sooner.

Ticker Dividend
T $214.05
APPL $76.30
ABBV $256.59

O $13.24
OMF $152.95

DHI $15.98
SBUX $50.96
Total dividend $883.16

As you can see this was a great month. T won’t be on the next time as I sold it with no regrets. 9 dividend payouts ABBV is a monster and should continue to grow at a nice pace. This will be my last payout from O till I rebuy it in my Roth. I used the proceeds to buy a share of Goog. With them announcing a 20-1 split I’d like to up my amount a bit so some plans have changed. I am still a dividend growth invested and will continue to be.

This was a good month for dividend raises as I received 5 of them the bad side is 1 cut to PPL.

AAPL, PEG, GOOG, MSFT, USHYX, MO, XOM, BAC, CVX, and KR are my top 10 stocks all over 10k in each one. A few years ago my goal was to just get stocks to 10K now with that obliterated I keep adding. 11 stocks over 10K and another 1 knocking on the door. Most of the top 10 is down a little which allows me to add and collect more dividends. Even though my portfolio value dropped again I know it will rise again and higher than my previously highest close. Time is on my side.

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
PPL $51.88

O $13.24
AQN $39.75
KDP $29.81
NRZ $162.13
USHYX $72.05
Total dividend $700.86

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.

Total dividend $1,333.53

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.

Dividend and Portfolio Review Nov 21

November has come to an end and how do I say this but we are in the last month of 2021 that’s right December 21 is here but we are going to talk about November.

November is done and the dividends are tallied up no matter what happens to the stock market the dividends roll in. Even though my total portfolio was down at the end of the month these dividends kept coming in and they are good.

Ticker Dividend
T $214.05
OMF $72.80
APPL $75.31
ABBV $233.97

RILY $42.00
RILY $126.00
USHYX $74.65
SBUX $37.24
HBI $36.45
Total $955.97

As you can see this November was a strong dividend month pushing ever so close to the comma club. RILY paid a supplemental dividend. Apple is on fire keeps hitting new highs in my portfolio. As I’m in my upper mid 40s I still like a good mix of growth and income stocks so my current portfolio fits me well. I will continue to add to both as I get money to add.

HBI for the second quarter in a row paid in the middle month. I don’t know if this will continue going forward or not. DHI which usually pays in the middle of the quarter looks like at the end of the year pays out in Dec.

This month was 55.09 percent higher than last year. My overall dividends year to date are 29.72 percent higher than last year. With the expected cut from T next year it will be harder to keep that growth but if I can keep it above 10 percent I’ll be happy. Dividend raises this year resulted in $799.25 extra dollars into my account over the next year. This was my highest ever and shows dividends are back. Based on my dividend portfolio I would have to invest over $22,000 to get that.

October Dividend and Portfolio Review

We are into the third quarter and October is finished all the dividends have been received. This is the best part of the month, calculating my dividends and reading yours.

Starting with the portfolio, my portfolio made nice gains after finishing down last month. BAC has moved up to the number 7 position and pushing MO to number 8 XOM is 9 and T is 10. The top spot belongs to AAPL. ABBV with a nice dividend raise moved into the number 2 dividend spot jumping PEG, with this raise ABBV now will pay me over $1,000.00 a year joining MO as the only to payers to do this. Next two closest are a mutual Fund USHYX and XOM. The top 10 stocks make up 60.52 percent of my portfolio. This months dividend increases added $174.04 to my account. I would have to invest $5100 at 3.41% to get that.

What a month to start the final quarter of 2021. Watching this grow brick by brick is awesome. This month was 17.85 percent higher than last OCT. Through the same time frame last year I am 27.56 percent higher. I have already passed lasts years dividend total.

Over the next few years I am going to be moving my REITS and BDC over to my Roth, so the Roth income will climb and the taxable might go down some, but overall they both combined should climb generously.

What a month. This marks the second straight month over $1,000. This is exciting. Dollar by dollar this was built and it is starting to really grow. The $1297.96 is the highest amount I’ve ever received. This was without HBI which paid last month.

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.

August 21 Dividend Review

August is in the books and I have calculated the results. One thing that is good about the market when you are dividend investing is those dividends come in wether the market is up or down. The market has been on a tear lately, which is good for my portfolio. Ticker Dividend
T $214.05
APPL $75.19

O $12.65

USHYX $57.89
Rily $8.50
Rily $25.50
SBUX $31.50
HBI $36.45
Total $1,159.53

You can see the results for themselves. OMF and Rily both paid special dividends which helped me get to $1,159.53 in dividends this month. HBI paid this month instead of September. This is first off month to go over $1,000.00 so I’m pretty excited about these results. 3 payments over $200.00 is pretty good.

This was a good month. Dividend increases this year has been kicking it. I won’t get as many next year. Almost half my rise from $10,000 in forward dividends to where I am now was driven by dividend increases. But I still should get quite a bit. I still have a few stocks that haven’t given an increase in awhile. This month was 104 percent higher than last year. Year over year I am 31.4 percent higher.

In my portfolio the top 10 stocks make up over 50 percent of my portfolio. The 10 spot is battle between DUK and XOM with DUK winning right now SBUX and KR are not that far behind.

As you can see I brought in $660.57 last month. $MO became my first stock that will deliver over $1000 in dividends next year. I Sold MPW in my taxable and bought back in my Roth so all the dividends from MPW will be delivered in my Roth next Quarter. Over the next few years I will be selling my Reits and BDC and putting them in my Roth.

Last month was 20.27 percent higher than the year before. Total for the year is 22.9 percent higher than dividends at this time. In July I went over $11,000.00 in forward dividends. Over $400.00 of that is due to dividend increases I doubt I will get that much next year but in the future again it will be possible as I keep adding to my dividends. Exciting times for sure.
