November 2018 Dividends

monopoly_go

December is upon us and the weather is getting colder but the dividends are heating up. yep those dividends keep coming no matter what the weather does or the stock market through all its up and downs the one constant thing is those dividends hitting my account. Lots of them hit my account this month.

November is a slower month but has been growing lately as I add and it is slowly coming up and as of this month is higher than OCT. The big question will it stay higher? we will see as the year pans out next year.

You can see the November buys here.

As you can see i was paid 12 times by 11 companies. That comes out to $43.22 per company. CFFN paid its extra dividend in NOV instead of DEC which pushed this months up. I wont hit $700.00 in a month this year but should sometime next year.

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 $386.42 to put towards my bills. But i am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, we brought in $15.84 a day.  This is a 98% 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 $16,085.72. Definitely seeing the results as our estimated income for this year stands at $5,755. 15 dollars for this year. The 12 month rolling estimated dividend stands at $6,528.85. You can see the results after time a mix of dividend reinvestment and adding on my own has helped this tremendously. 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.

How was your dividend haul? Did you do better than expected? Let me know in the comments below.

Second raise goes to Microsoft. Lots of speculation as to how big this one was.

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

2018 buy # 7 SBUX #8 O and #9 SBUX

Yes that is correct 3 buys all in one day. 3 buys 2 companies. They were smaller buys but buys non the less and i will take both or all of them.

First buy was monday July 2nd when i logged into Merrill Edge account and seen i had money from the rest of my transfer.

downloadStarbucks is the world’s leading coffee retailer, with more than 21,000 global locations (with total units split roughly half company-owned and half licensed). The company purchases and roasts high-quality whole bean coffees and sells them, along with fresh, rich-brewed coffees, Italian-style espressos, teas, cold blended beverages, and complementary foods. Starbucks has recently expanded beyond its core retail business into consumer products leveraging the strength of its brand equity.

Once the cash was semi available i bought Sbux, and i bought 11 shares at $48.89 totaling $537.74.  I turned around a few minutes later and seen that it had dropped again so i bought 2 more shares at $48.85 for a total of $97.70 for a total of $635.44. This adds $18.72 dollars a year to my dividends.

realty-income-logo1The second buy was O yes the monthly income company and i increased my month;y income by adding 6 shares to my total. 6 shares at 6 @ $52.98 for a total of $317.93. O just recently announced an increase so this will add $15.84 a year to my dividends

Not a lot of money but bought SBUX for the first time and added to O always want to keep adding to my good stocks.

Do you own these? Have you bought these?

I have 32 shares of O it dropped because of the anticipated switch from Capital one to Merrill edge but if the price is right i will buy more. In this case every cent counts and it does. this isnt a large raise, but they consistantly raise their dividend throughout the year. This will result in an increase of .192 cents a year nit much but ever raise counts and  over time these raises add up.
