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.

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
MPW $28.67

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

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.

PEG $236.72
MRCC $46.31
BAC $65.94
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.

Total portfolio value $370,530.36

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.

As you can see I had a fantastic month. 10 companies paying me 11 times. Most of my income comes from ABBV and T but some others are not to shabby.

February 21 Dividend and Portfolio Review

Another month down. This year is flying and the dividends are coming in. Dividend increases coming in at a nice pace.

Ticker Dividend
T. $214.05
APPL. $69.84
ABBV. $215.89
MAIN. $28.75
O. $12.59
CFFN. $31.73
USHYX $56.24
Amount $629.09

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.

September Dividend Review

Love this meme for this month, it never gets old. We have completed three quarters of the year and are gearing up for a great 4th quarter to end the year strong but first we have to see how I did this month.

Well there you have it my September dividends and it was a nice haul. What we have is 4 straight quarter ending months with over $1000,00 dollars. This month was a 29 percent increase over last June’s $870.88. Barring a barrage of dividend cuts December should be a great month.

Have you had any buys or sells lately let me know in the comments.

 

2018 buy number 4 MO

Altria Group, Inc. is an American corporation and one of the world’s largest producers and marketers of tobacco, cigarettes and related products. It operates worldwide and is headquartered in Henrico County, Virginia.

With that being said i since it is down off its highs i decided to delve in and buy this stock again this is the second time i have bought this stock this year. To make this possible possible i sold to stocks an ETF called EFA for $838.20 a total of 11 shares, i was up about $110.00 and i also sold a preferred stock DDPRB i sold 5.5 shares of it for $563.98 not sure how much i was up on that. As part of the streamlining process of getting better stocks and building a good solid dividend income.

Now the buy, it was for 29 shares of MO for a total of $1,902.91 including commisions. this adds $20.3 a quarter to my dividends and $81.2  a year. This buy gives me 147 shares total of MO.  This buy brings my 12 month rolling prospective dividends to $5533.04. it becomes my third stock and also joins a mutual fund as stocks that pay over $400.00 a year.

 

Have you bought anything lately? Let me know in the comments below

 

Recent sell

Well I sold a stock dont like doing it but sometimes you have to. You cant look back and wonder of course looking back and wondering wont do know good as this company had a bid to get bought out. I figured with the buyout offer it was a good timee to sell as to fill out their to sell to them form cost 25.00. Now was a way to figure out how to come out ahead. lol
On Thursday I was able to sell STS for 20.98 a share which with a 114.69 came out to $2,399.56 after fees which saved me 25.00 and got me close to the buy price. This cost my total dividends about 18.35 a year.  My current 12 month forward dividend is $3544.9.

Have you sold anything.
