April 2019 Dividends

image Awesome April has come and gone and left us with some dividends to count And counting we will do. as we need to figure out how much dividends we got. The best thing about dividends are they come in no matter if the market is up or down.

 

Busy month for buying and 1 sell and a trim off of GOOG which you can read about  here  .

An Awesome total of $502.68, three straight months over $500.00 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 16 times by 16 companies. That comes out to $31.41 per company.

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 $413.58 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $16.75 a day.  This is a 19.61 percent increase over last April. Total for year now I have brought in $2157.91 which brings our total per day $17.98.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $18921.19. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6,473.73 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 $502.68 brought in this month and a total of $2157.91 I am 29.56 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. I put a some dent in it but i was hoping to be closer to  35 percent there is still lots of time and I am hoping by the end of June to be at 50 percent or higher we will see. My 12 month out  Prospective dividend dropped from $6978.31 to 6930.04

I will be making some changes to my Portfolio, not all at once but over time to streamline it into a poertfolio 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 9.52 percent S&p 500 TR is 10.83 percent increase. Increase from Jan 1st -April 30 15.66 percent S&p 500 TR is 17.12 percent for the month of March it is 2.69 percent to 4.05 percent to the S&P 500 TR

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

Total for year now I have brought in $435.71 which brings our total per day $14.05.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $17,198.99. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $5,228.52, based on this month.  through the end of 2019.

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.

The buying will slow down as i build upp cash positions but will continue to make buys.  Continue reading “October Dividend Income Report”

August Dividend Report

image My favorite time of the month is here when we start reading peoples dividend reports and see how great you guys did and compute mine so we can see how I did. This month is no exception September is here Pumpkin spice coffee is already at SBUX and is probably best thrown in the trash after you order it but none the less another month is in the books.

August was the first full month that my sharebuilder account had been transferred over to Merrill Edge. So now while its hard to say its now a  Merrill Edge account.

Along with my bigger purchase of KDP earlier in the month which I wrote about I alo purchased a smaller amount of VOD on August 20th for 5 shares with a price of $22.97 for a total of $114.85, commission free. This buy adds $8.75 to my forward dividends. Small buys count  also and I want every dollar to count so we are. smaller buys we will  describe here unless i make a few of them throughout a week.

Dividend Increase MO

image Yes today was the big day the big increase. And it was no slouch.

Altria Group is the parent company of Philip Morris USA (cigarettes), UST (smokeless), John Middleton (cigars), Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, NuMark Corp (vapor) & Philip Morris Capital Corp. PMUSA enjoys a 51% share of the US cigarette market, led by its top cigarette brand Marlboro. MO also owns over 10% of Anheuser-Busch InBev, the world’s largest brewer. In March 2008 it spun off its int’l cigarette business to shareholders.

Altria Group Inc. said late Thursday its board of directors has approved a 14% increase to the cigarette maker’s quarterly dividend to 80 cents a share from 70 cents a share. The dividend is payable Oct. 10 to shareholders of record Sept. 14, Altria said.

I have had larger increase with less shares but this one is one of the biggest in terms of dollar wise i have ever had hopefully a i can get a few other companies up like this, LOL.

I own 149 shares of Altria so this gives me an increase of $14.90 per quarter or $59.60 per year. when you add the earlier increase in it comes out to an astounding $78.57 a year raise

 

This is a 14% increase. I own 149 shares this will add $59.60. Every dollar counts and we are counting this also.
