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

October Dividend Income Report


Another month has passed the weather has turned cooler the leaves for the most part in my yard are off the trees. Mr Market has been very volatile, which has given some good buying oppurtunities which you can see here and here. as you can see thats lots of buys in case you had missed the 2 posts. 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.

June 18 dividend report.

yall-got-any-more-of-them-dividends We are  cruising through the year and just hit the 7th month of the year. I looked at my list checked it twice to see who was naughty or nice? OOO wait wrong month for that but i did have to check my list twice and in a minute you will know why. This month was so close but no cigar. still a brutalizing record which really helps.

Just a quick recap of some things pertaining to my account. I finally got a partial transfer of my account into Merrill edge one June 26th. Took long enough but im glad its started. i will write more on this later as lots more info on the transfer.

April 18 Dividend Report


Yes its the most favoritest time of the month where every reads and is waiting everyones dividend report and we surly do get a little sad when someone misses one. I do these to keep myself on track and to show everyone how far i have come. I enjoy doing these and putting them out every month.

As we like tracking we also like knowing when we have highs and lows. Selling could cause a low from a past year. this month was  first time a non ending quarter month hit $400 so we are excited about that.

Showing is this months dividends scroll down and you can see the comparisons to last year.   I had 13 companies pay me this month. I shut off dividend reinvestment half way through because of an impeding transfer that I am still waiting on. Hopefully everything gets transferred smoothly so i will take a small hit because of partial  shares but as soon as i start buying again that should not be a problem to much.

This month represents a 60 percent increase over April of 2017 still getting some nice size increases but as the account grows those will slide down. the increase is due to buys and dividend reinvestment. Ironic that 420 was recieved and april has 420 in it lol.

Its also the 5th month in a row over $300.00.  If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 30 is 89.01. That leaves me with a nice $331.15 to put towards my bills. but alas we will collect what we did not reinvest and save it to drop into a stock once my transfer gets complete. this months $420.25 comes out to $14.00 a day im earning this month.   This brings my accumaleted dividends for this year to $1760.86, this comes out daily to $14.67 a day average for the year. Which puts me on schedule for bringing in this year, $5282.00. My 12 month rolling prospective dividend cumulative is $5659.58 which comes out to $440 a month average.

FEB 18 Dividend report


Yes i will pass go and collect my money, because i am greedy like that. We are now into the third month of the year March. Where does time go? it is lots of fun watching my dividends hit the register and go kaching kaching kaching.  We are a few weeks away from March Madness starting.

Before we go into the details I hit a milestone with my 100th post this month. this will be my 103rd post.  Always good to hit marks and milestones.

What a great month it is as you can see. 12 good payers paying me. they payed me quite well highest payment for a middle month dividend reinvests 1 new buy and some additions really help. AGNC with that payment went over $200.00 a year in dividends it becomes the it becomes the 9th company to  hit that payout.

This months $333.77  translates to 11.92 dollars a day for the month of FEB. If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup that equals $83.16 that would leave me with $250.61 which would pay my cell and home phone with a little left over. But as usual for now i will invest it all and i ended up with 14 extra shares.

For the year I have brought in $657.57 which equals $11.14 a day. my current projection for the year looks like its about $3,332.85. After next month we will have a better figure and be able to project more accurately.  I am expecting a big dividend haul next month. My 12 month rolling dividend stands currently at $5430.37

How was your month, let me know in the comments below.

Edit:  Had to change the number as i inserted it wrong for the yearly total it is correct now.

January 18 Dividend income


They need to update monopoly with a larger amount lol. i will collect it and invest it. Hard to believe that we are in Feb already time flies when you are investing i do believe.

I did not sell anything in my portfolio this month but also did not add anything. I am saving up money hoping to add after the quarter is over as i replenish a little but into emergency funds but if  the market continues to drop that might be hard to resist we will see how it goes then take action from that at a later time.  If it continues to drop i might pull the trigger on some trades.
