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.

Q1 22 is 26 percent higher than Q1 21.

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
T $214.05
APPL $76.30
ABBV $256.59

O $13.24
OMF $152.95
USHYX $71.00
DHI $15.98
SBUX $50.96
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.

Total portfolio value $364,535.48

January 22 Dividend And Portfolio recap

Welcome back as a new year is under way and month 1 is complete. I am going to run down my dividends, and an over view of my portfolio. The best part of dividend investing is watching my dividends come in.

Ticker Dividend
PPL $51.88
MO $271.38

O $13.24
AQN $39.75
KDP $29.81
NRZ $162.13
USHYX $72.05
Total dividend $700.86

A great month to start the year. MPW, AQN and part of NRZ are in my Roth. I plan to move the rest of NRZ over to the Roth in the coming years. I plan on moving MAIN and O into my Roth over the next few years also. Last Jan I started in the negative this year was a 23 percent increase.

I sold T and bought DHI, RILY, OMF, SBUX, ABBV, AAPL. It was a tough decision but had to be made. My goal in this move is to get better dividends and growth over the long run.

As far as my Top 10 stocks the bottom of it was ever changing SBUX was in there but the recent drop and rise from CVX pushed them in the top 10 to replace T. My portfolio value fell a little, the dividends dropped but I think long term this portfolio will be built to withstand major drops. with the loss of T my portfolio number of stocks stands at 36 stocks which includes 1 mutual fund and one non dividend payer

Total portfolio value $366,688.26

Dividend and Portfolio Review Nov 21

November has come to an end and how do I say this but we are in the last month of 2021 that’s right December 21 is here but we are going to talk about November.

November is done and the dividends are tallied up no matter what happens to the stock market the dividends roll in. Even though my total portfolio was down at the end of the month these dividends kept coming in and they are good.

Ticker Dividend
T $214.05
OMF $72.80
APPL $75.31
ABBV $233.97
MAIN $30.83
O $12.67
RILY $42.00
RILY $126.00
USHYX $74.65
SBUX $37.24
HBI $36.45
Total $955.97

As you can see this November was a strong dividend month pushing ever so close to the comma club. RILY paid a supplemental dividend. Apple is on fire keeps hitting new highs in my portfolio. As I’m in my upper mid 40s I still like a good mix of growth and income stocks so my current portfolio fits me well. I will continue to add to both as I get money to add.

HBI for the second quarter in a row paid in the middle month. I don’t know if this will continue going forward or not. DHI which usually pays in the middle of the quarter looks like at the end of the year pays out in Dec.

This month was 55.09 percent higher than last year. My overall dividends year to date are 29.72 percent higher than last year. With the expected cut from T next year it will be harder to keep that growth but if I can keep it above 10 percent I’ll be happy. Dividend raises this year resulted in $799.25 extra dollars into my account over the next year. This was my highest ever and shows dividends are back. Based on my dividend portfolio I would have to invest over $22,000 to get that.

Total portfolio value $340,407.05
Forward annual dividend $11,711.04

August 21 Dividend Review

August is in the books and I have calculated the results. One thing that is good about the market when you are dividend investing is those dividends come in wether the market is up or down. The market has been on a tear lately, which is good for my portfolio. Ticker Dividend
T $214.05
APPL $75.19
MAIN $29.66
O $12.65
OMF $72.80

USHYX $57.89
Rily $8.50
Rily $25.50
SBUX $31.50
HBI $36.45
Total $1,159.53

You can see the results for themselves. OMF and Rily both paid special dividends which helped me get to $1,159.53 in dividends this month. HBI paid this month instead of September. This is first off month to go over $1,000.00 so I’m pretty excited about these results. 3 payments over $200.00 is pretty good.

This was a good month. Dividend increases this year has been kicking it. I won’t get as many next year. Almost half my rise from $10,000 in forward dividends to where I am now was driven by dividend increases. But I still should get quite a bit. I still have a few stocks that haven’t given an increase in awhile. This month was 104 percent higher than last year. Year over year I am 31.4 percent higher.

In my portfolio the top 10 stocks make up over 50 percent of my portfolio. The 10 spot is battle between DUK and XOM with DUK winning right now SBUX and KR are not that far behind.

May Dividend and Portfolio Review

May has ended and it is time to look over my portfolio and dividends I received.

As far as the portfolio goes it was a bland month with it being up by less than $1000.00 dollars. I did add one new position. Bringing my total to 39 wonderful stocks. 38 of those stocks currently pay a dividend. The one new stock was RILY capital. It is my smallest allocation so far at .31 percent of the portfolio. The largest allocation is AAPL at 13.6 percent.

March 21 Dividend and Portfolio Review

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.

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.

Jan 21 Dividend Review

The New Year is here and we are moving right along. January is almost in the record books and the dividends have been tallied.

January was a great month but due to the dividend cut from NRZ and selling APTS I ended up a little short of last years dividend. That’s ok as my portfolio is now better positioned for the long haul. Even with the drop down at the end of January my total portfolio value was higher than last month.

August 2020 Dividend report

This report catches myself up on dividend reports it is great to get caught up. My portfolio I keep at Merrill Edge really caught fire this month surging past $200,000 Dollars this doesn’t include the stock I have at equinity or my dividend paying mutual fund It was at the end of 2017 my account was at sharebuilder and it went over $100,000. So. Little over 2.5 years later we have the next $100,000, how crazy is that? I doubt it doubles that quickly. I also track my dividend Stocks and it topped out recently at $229,000 these both are incredible numbers. My Goal is to add my non dividend stocks to my main tracker eventually so I can see it all combined.

T $203.24
GIS $28.91
APPL $68.01
ABBV $111.06
MAIN $27.25
O $11.37
CFFN $31.73

As you can see another solid month. I sold out of GIS and added a little to T, ABBV, SBUX and APPL. In 10 years APPL could be my largest dividend payer by a long shot. The YOY from last years $487.03 is 16.6 percent higher. I hope your August was great
