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.

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

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.

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.

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.

What a great month for dividends. You can see this is firing on all cylinders. Twenty companies 21 payouts. This month is 18 percent higher than last June. Quarterly is up 30 percent. Total brought in so far this year is $5236.66 which is 23 percent higher than last year at this time. If I can keep the yearly above 25 percent I would be ecstatic.

My net worth I figure up quarterly and this last quarter it fell just shy of rising by about $30,000 dollars the main drivers of this are my portfolio and TSP which is now over $90,000. Since I started tracking this at the end of Q3 2016 my Net worth has grown 107 percent. Since last quarter it has grown 5.5 percent.

My overall portfolio has risen nicely the last quarter the value is over $316,000 dollars right now hitting that mark was great in early April. Top ten stocks have not changed much as they are the same all over $10,000. Except for a couple of position switches.

As you can see this was a great month growing dividends. SBUX put off their dividend till next month or it would have been higher. This month was 23.3 percent higher than last years dividend. Year over year total right now is 9.01 percent. Very happy considering last month was negative. This will be my last dividend for CFFN as I sold it off for OMF. Portfolio value is up 2.9 percent since the start of the year

I am moving forward and will soon have to update some of my future goals. Don’t know when but I imagine sometime this year at the way things are going. Even if I reach them next year it’s ok.
