March 2019 buys and sell

Well its time to look at what i bought in March and what i sold in March.   i believe in buying quality dividend payers and while i dont like to sell i will if a security gets to dangerous or falls out of favor with me. While March is not over yet i wont be buying anymore as the next trading day is April 1st and that is not a joke.

Total from the buys I added $92.77 subtracting the $61.20 gives me a nice $31.57 gain on the month  of course I would like to add $90.00 plus every month with no sells..

I have now added more to my stocks that raise their dividends regularly and will benifit more in the long run.

February Dividends

image Yes Fabulous February dividends are here. Its always great to sit down and let you count my dividends with me. Lets get started.

Busy month for buying and 1 sell which you can read about here.

A fabulous total of $520.03 What is not to like about this? You can compare last years results on the page and also see what percentage each dividend was.

As you can see i was paid 14  times by 14 companies. That comes out to $37.14 per company. New companies ABBV and SBUX helped out this month. The rest is from additional buys and some dividend reinvestment.

If i were to go to my Durango Joes coffee shop at 2.97 a cup times 28 is $83.16.  That would  leave me with a nice $436.87 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $18.57 a day.  This is a 55.80  percent increase over last February. Total for year now I have brought in $955.74 which brings our total per day $16.19.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $17,719.02. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $5,734.44, based on this month, through the end of 2019. 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 2 of my bills, but when i inherit the house i will have more so i want to be able to cover most of those also. Looking at the chart you can see what percentage of  dividend was from each company this month.  You can look at the past dividends page which has now been updated Past Dividends.

With $520.03 brought in this month and a total of $955.74 I am 13.09 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. It doesnt look good now but lots of months left to go. My 12 month out  Prospective dividend is now at $6917.33.

 

How was your month? Let me know in the comments below.

 

August Dividend Report

image My favorite time of the month is here when we start reading peoples dividend reports and see how great you guys did and compute mine so we can see how I did. This month is no exception September is here Pumpkin spice coffee is already at SBUX and is probably best thrown in the trash after you order it but none the less another month is in the books.

August was the first full month that my sharebuilder account had been transferred over to Merrill Edge. So now while its hard to say its now a  Merrill Edge account.

Along with my bigger purchase of KDP earlier in the month which I wrote about I alo purchased a smaller amount of VOD on August 20th for 5 shares with a price of $22.97 for a total of $114.85, commission free. This buy adds $8.75 to my forward dividends. Small buys count  also and I want every dollar to count so we are. smaller buys we will  describe here unless i make a few of them throughout a week.
