September 2019 Dividend Review.

yall-got-any-more-of-them-dividendsYes we are done with September and onto October. 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. 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 21 times by 21 companies. That comes out to $41.47 per company. 6 new stock and 3 sells throughout the year for this month.  Buys and re investments have helped bring this up. $870.88 is my new record and this record will continue to grow and grow and grow.

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 $781.78 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in 29.02 a day or $1.20 an hour on a 24 hour day this is the second month getting over $1.00.  This is a 36.40% increase over last September. Total for year now I have brought in $5295.85 which brings our total per day $19.39.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $22,059. 85. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $7061.13 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 $870.88 brought in this month and a total of $5295.85 I am 72.54  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 $7490.12 to $7600.12

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. 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 September 30th, 2019 I have a 12.15%  S&p 500 TR is 12.98%  increase. Increase from Jan 1st -September 30th 19.18%  S&p 500 TR is 20.55%  for the month of August it is 4.44% to 1.87%  to the S&P 500 TR.

2 Dividend Raises This Week.

image I had 2 dividend raises this week. The one way to ensure your dividends keep growing long after you stop adding is with dividend raises of course the plan is to keep adding so this grows and grows and grows.

Realty Income Corporation O recently announced its 103rd common stock monthly dividend hike since the company’s NYSE listing in 1994. The company will now pay 22.70 cents per share compared with the 22.65 cents paid earlier.

The increased dividend will be paid on Oct 15 to shareholders on record as of Oct 1, 2019. The latest dividend rate marks an annualized amount of $2.724 per share versus the prior rate of $2.718 per share. Based on the company’s share price of $75.77 on Sep 17, it results in a dividend yield of around 3.6%.

Notably, solid dividend payouts are the biggest enticement for REIT investors and Realty Income remains committed to boosting shareholders’ wealth. The company enjoys a trademark of the phrase “The Monthly Dividend Company”. Read here

Theses increases are small but steady and you can slowly see the difference over time. since I own 38.47 shares of O this comes out to an increase of  .23 Cents a year, not a lot but if you add them all together it sure does add up.

The second company was MSFT and it was another nice raise.

REDMOND, Wash.Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Microsoft Corp. on Wednesday announced that its board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.51 per share, reflecting a 5 cent or 11% increase over the previous quarter’s dividend. The dividend is payable Dec. 12, 2019, to shareholders of record on Nov. 21, 2019. The ex-dividend date will be Nov. 20, 2019. Read here.

Since i own 60.65 shares this will add $12.13 to my yearly dividends

June 19 Dividends

yall-got-any-more-of-them-dividends Well its time to report my dividend recieved for the Jolting June dividends. The bad news is I did not hit $700.00. Guess you will have to wait to see the good news.

If you have read this far you know now the good news is that i completely jumped the $700 figure and landed at $839.59, which now stands an impressive record month.

Busy month for buying and selling which you can read about here.

As you can see i was paid 24 times by 23 companies. That comes out to $34.98 per company. 6 new stocks  helped with this month. Then other buys and re investments have helped make up the difference.

If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 30 is $89.1.  That would  leave me with a nice $750.49 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $27.98 a day.  This is a 20.08 percent increase over last June. Total for year now I have brought in $3470.99 which brings our total per day $19.17.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $20234.27. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6941.98 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 $839.59 brought in this month and a total of $3470.99 I am 47.54 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. This month put  some dent in it I was hoping to be at 47 percent percent by this month and i was. 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 $6822.34 to 6941.98

I will be making some changes to my Portfolio, not all at once but over time to streamline it into a portfolio 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  through April 30, 2019 i have a 8.11%  S&p 500 TR is 11.10%  increase. Increase from Jan 1st -June  30 14.88%  S&p 500 TR is 18.54%  for the month of June it is 6.11% to 7.05%  to the S&P 500 TR.

Also on a side note this month was my first month earning over $1.00. I earned$1.16 on 24 hour pay scale. Onward $2.00.

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

March 2019 Dividends.

yall-got-any-more-of-them-dividends Marvelous March Madness dividends are in and they are good. as matter of fact they are so good i set a new record with them. That means some other months will be even better when i look at the my future dividends.

What my goal is is to build a passive income stream that pays all my bills and givves me enough left to have fun on. Right now i can pay most of my bills, I own half my house split with my mom so she pays most of the house bills but eventually i will be paying those. I want to jump ahead of the game and not have to worry if they are covered. I have my military retirement and VA disability which help out but if i just relied on that i would fall short when its my time to take over paying the house bills.

I have structured my dividends as a mix of income and future growth, so i have a good mix of stocks that are pleasently safe but as we have seen with GE and KHC and a few others companies can cut or even eliminate  their dividend at anytime. I dont own those but i have owned companies that have both cut and eliminated their dividend.  I dont believe in diversification just for diversification but to build a nice passive income stream.

As you can see this was a record month with total dividends at $699.49. I dont plan on it but most of the stocks i added to or bought till recently was not in the third quarter ending month. While i fell a little short and do i mean a little, but that might be to much maybe a smidgen short of $700 that was due to selling of stocks going back to last year of course i helped out other months UVE was sold and added to ATT and SJT and WRE were recently sold. I made up the  dividend almost in the Quarter ending month akready with a purchase of D last month. Ford the last 3 years has paid a supplemental dividend but this year did not and that is ok as  I would rather not rely on a one for long even though i have others and if another company pays me one i will not complain. I do believe this will be my last Quarter ending month under $700.00.

Slower  month for buying and 1 sell than the last few months which you can read about here .

A marvelous total of $699.49 What is not to like about this? You can compare last years results on the page and also see what percentage each dividend was. With this dividend reinvestment of PEG it now is my first stock of many hopefully that go over $800.00 so it has joined that club.

As you can see i was paid 20 times by 20 companies. That comes out to $34.97 per company. New companies D and DAL and R helped out with their first payment this month. The rest is from additional buys and some dividend reinvestment.

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 $607.42 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $22.56 a day.  This is a 2.4  percent increase over last March. Total for year now I have brought in $1655.23 which brings our total per day $18.39.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $18418.51. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6,620.92 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 2 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 $699.49 brought in this month and a total of $1655.23 I am 22.67 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. we put a serous dent in it but i was hoping to be closer to 25 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 is now at $6978.31.

For those that like total return im 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 MAR 31 2019 i have a 6.65 percent S&p 500 TR is 6.51 percent increase. Increase from Jan 1st -Mar 31 13.33 percent S&p 500 TR is 13.65 percent for the month of March it is 3.1 percent to 1.94 percent to the S&P 500 TR

Dec 2018 Dividends

yall-got-any-more-of-them-dividends This is the best month it seems like to bring this MEME out always funny. As the winter has arrived . the stock market was down in DEC but as long as dividends are coming in it does not matter if the stock market is down, up, or sideways. Now it is time to see how much I brought in.

We once again fell just shy with $695.56 So close to $700.00 we did not hit it this year but next year we will in at least 2 month.

You can see the December buys here

As you can see i was paid 21 times by 19 companies. That comes out to $36.60 per company. CFFN paid its extra dividend in NOV instead of DEC which pushed last months up.

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 $603.49 to put towards my bills. But i am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, we brought in $22.43 a day.  This is a 50.48% increase over last November. Total for year now we have brought in $5275.56 which brings our total per day $15.79. This month continued to put last years total dividend in the rear view mirror. Total lifetime tracked dividends is $16,763.28. Definitely seeing the results as our final income for this year stands at $5,953. 12 dollars for this year. The 12 month rolling estimated dividend stands at $6,616.60. 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 all 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 this month.  You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.

2 Dividend Increases

image Yes 2 increases on the same day, how awesome is that? To me its very awesome.

First one on Sept. 18th and the one we will start with is O. Yes the fifth raise since last year that is awesome just in itself. these raises are generally smaller but still raises. They all count though no matter how small.

Realty Income Corp:

* 98TH COMMON STOCK MONTHLY DIVIDEND INCREASE DECLARED BY REALTY INCOME

* INCREASE IN COMPANY’S COMMON STOCK MONTHLY CASH DIVIDEND TO $0.2205 PER SHARE FROM $0.22 PER SHARE.

I own 38 shares this will add $0.22 cents a year. Every dollar counts and we are counting this also.

Second raise goes to Microsoft. Lots of speculation as to how big this one was. Most were expecting a bigger increase, some were expecting a special dividend even though they said it was not going to do that. but the did raise it. Tuesday, the MSFT company’s board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of 46 cents a share, up from 42 cents, for an increase of 9.5%.

Not bad but not the greatest and i will take it as it adds to my  growing

This is a 9.5% increase. I own 60 shares this will add $9.60. Every dollar counts and we are counting this also.
