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.

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.

Starting the second quarter of the year, and the 4th month. Hard to believe how times flies when the stock market is going up. It is starting to warm up outside and my portfolio is about to heat up also.

As you can see this month was a great month and it was the highest ever. Compared to last March this month was 24.9 percent higher. My current yearly dividends are 14.9 percent higher than the first quarter last year. Nothing to complain about except I want more money and I know the solution to that problem. Buy great stocks.
Delving into the stats I was paid 22 times by 21 companies. My portfolio is growing by leaps and bounds. This month it my portfolio went up by $17,400. That is just a little shy of what my military retirement brings in a year. My total portfolio value just fell shy of $300,000. So it will pass that real soon. The last portfolio update I did was with my Merrill Edge account but since then I added my non dividend stocks into my tracker. It took 7.5 months or so for my Merrill edge account to add $50,000 in value. My net worth crossed the half a million mark this month. I have updated to the next level I want to achieve. I love to update these as it shows I am moving forward.

Well we are here time to update my net worth for the end of the year. I track my net worth to see how i am doing. I dont know what the end result will be but cashflow from dividends will be a major driver and that is all that matters.
You can see from when i started tracking it in 2016 it has Risen 62.5 percent. This year it has risen an astounding 23.2 percent, and quarter over quarter it has risen 7.3 percent.
Do you track your net worth? Let me know in the comments below.
As we enter the last Quarter of 2019 its time to look at my net worth and how I have done. My net worth is tied to stock market and i am OK with that because the main thing i want is dividends anything else is secondary.
Since i started My Net worth has increased 51.4 percent since last Quarter it has increased 2.73 percent. Slow and steady wins the race. Do you calculate your net worth?
Well its time to look at my Net worth as we end June and head into the second half of the year. From my perspective it looks great and continues to move upward which is what i want. of course if its moving downward that means my stocks are falling and I am adding more.
Form when I started there is a 47 percent increase in my net wort. Quarter over Quarter is a 2.06 percent increase these small increases add up over the long haul.
Do you track your net worth? Has it gone up or down?
Its time to examine my net worth. I Like to do this Quarterly instead of monthly no specific reason for doing it that way. So i finally transferred my money out of my Morgan Stanley into my Merrill edge account so that is done. The biggest driver will be my stocks defining my Net Worth as i have very little income coming in so there will not be much change in cash at the banks. I try to keep some extra just in case i need to make a purchase.
My net worth has risen 44% since i started tracking it in 2016 since the end of 2018 it is up 9.4 percent. Slow smart investments help out here.
Have you examined your net worth? Has it risen or fallen?
Well we are here three complete quarters and it is time tolook at my net worth. I do it quarterly and not monthly.
As you can see the progression is very nice. I transferred $4,800. from my USAA high yield mutual fund to Merill edge to my navy federal and while it shows on here as still in it is now in my merrill edge account and will reflect next quarterly update. From the start of my tracking my net worth it has increased 39 percent. The QOQ is 2.59 percent.
Well it is time to look at my mid year net worth. the hope is that it increases every quarter the reality is that i know some quarters it will go down. So far ive been been blessed and its gone up every quarter. that wont happen every quarter but in those it does well I am thankful for.
I have included the first quarter i tracked it along with the last quarter. Hard to believe it has gone up just shy of 100,000 in just a year and a half.
Because I am going through a brokerage transfer it is split out between share builder and Merrill Edge next quarter those will be combined as my transfer is almost all complete. Later on this year i will transfer in the Morgan Stanley to my account also.
Do you do net worth updates? How has it been doing? Let me know.
As we end one quarter and start another quarter. we look and see how my networth has progressed QOQ.
As you can see from the start to this quarter has been excellant of course that was helped by getting some stocks as gifts this quarter or i would have seen a drop or close to it. totally impressed with this and im hoping my additions to my stock portfolio pay dividends. (See what i did there?).
Till next Quarter hope your networth increases bountifully
