JAN 2020 Dividend Review

monopoly_go

Monopoly was always fun collecting money, what would be better than that? Hmmmm. wait dividend investing is because its real money and real money always is better than fake money especially when you are beating inflation. We are looking forward to a great year and to greatly increase our dividends in the upcoming years. It is with great enjoyment that i enjoy reading all of your dividend reports also, as i enjoy putting this one out.

My total for the month of is $587.16 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 $495.09 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $18.94  a day.  This is a 34.53 percent increase over last January. Total for year now I have brought in $587.16 which brings our total per day  to $18.94.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $24,838.37.  The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $7034.04 based on this month, through the end of 2020. 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 most of my bills. Looking at the chart you can see what percentage of  dividend was from each company this month.  AQN and APTS in the red is in my Roth and you can see that it accounts for 2.2 percent of my income for the month. You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.

With $587.16 brought in this month and a total of $587.16 I am 6.1  percent of my Bronze level goal of $9600.00.   My 12 month out  Prospective dividend rose from $8,170.44 to $8,782.52.

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 Jan 31, 2020 I have a 22.29% S&p 500 TR is 24.08%  increase. Increase from Jan 1st -Jan 31 -1.28%  S&p 500 TR is -0.04%.
