April 2019 Dividends

image Awesome April has come and gone and left us with some dividends to count And counting we will do. as we need to figure out how much dividends we got. The best thing about dividends are they come in no matter if the market is up or down.

 

Busy month for buying and 1 sell and a trim off of GOOG which you can read about  here  .

An Awesome total of $502.68, three straight months over $500.00 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 16 times by 16 companies. That comes out to $31.41 per company.

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 $413.58 to put towards my bills.   I am going to eventually put it all back in the stock market, I brought in $16.75 a day.  This is a 19.61 percent increase over last April. Total for year now I have brought in $2157.91 which brings our total per day $17.98.  Total lifetime tracked dividends is $18921.19. Definitely seeing the results each month. The 12 month estimated dividend stands at $6,473.73 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 3 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 $502.68 brought in this month and a total of $2157.91 I am 29.56 percent of my Bronze level goal of $7300. I put a some dent in it but i was hoping to be closer to  35 percent there is still lots of time and I am hoping by the end of June to be at 50 percent or higher we will see. My 12 month out  Prospective dividend dropped from $6978.31 to 6930.04

I will be making some changes to my Portfolio, not all at once but over time to streamline it into a poertfolio that is driven by dividend increases. This will take time and will have some sells and hard decisions. but in the end i will have a better portfolio.

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 i through April 30, 2019 i have a 9.52 percent S&p 500 TR is 10.83 percent increase. Increase from Jan 1st -April 30 15.66 percent S&p 500 TR is 17.12 percent for the month of March it is 2.69 percent to 4.05 percent to the S&P 500 TR

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

3 Dividend Hikes

What can i say they rolled in for a few days one nice one and the other 2 ill take LOL.

Related imageFirst one was PPL  and it was a yawner.

The company demonstrated its continued commitment to dividend growth, announcing that it is increasing its common stock dividend to $0.4125 per share on a quarterly basis. The increased dividend will be payable April 1 to shareowners of record as of March 8, 2019. The increase, PPL’s 17th in 18 years, raises the annualized dividend from $1.64 per share to $1.65 per share. PPL has paid a dividend in every quarter since 1946.

I own 50 shares of PPL this will add $.50 to my dividends. The new year is looking good already one of the best starts I have had and it will only get better as more dividend increases come in. The goal one day is to have my dividends pay all my current and future bills right now most months would be covered on bills but in the future i will have more.

Walmart Inc. (WMT) said Tuesday it will raise its annual dividend by 2% to $2.12 a share, from $2.08 a share. The first quarterly dividend of the new annual rate will be payable April 1 to shareholders of record on March 15. Based on Friday’s stock closing price of $99.99, the new dividend implies a dividend yield of 2.12%, compared with the implied yields for the SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) of 1.37% and for the Dow Jones Industrial Average (WMT) of 2.09%. The discount retail giant also reported fiscal fourth-quarter results (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/walmart-shares-rise-after- earnings-and-revenue-beats-expectations-2019-02-19) that beat expectations. The stock, which shot up 4.5% in premarket trade, has tacked on 3.3% over the past three months, while the retail ETF has lost 0.4% and the Dow has gained 3.5%

Since i own 20 shares of Walmart this is will add $.80 to my dividends.

The third and final recent increase is PEG and it was nice.

I own 422.2 shares of PEG this will add $33.77 to my dividends. The new year is looking good already one of the best starts I have had and it will only get better as more dividend increases come in. The goal one day is to have my dividends pay all my current and future bills right now most months would be covered on bills but in the future i will have more.

WMT and PEG dividend hikes

Image resultThe Board of Directors of Walmart Inc. (NYSE:WMTOpens Flyout Module that includes Quote information for linked symbol) approved an annual
cash dividend for fiscal year 2019 of $2.08 per share, an increase of 2
percent from the $2.04 per share paid for the last fiscal year. The
fiscal year 2019 annual dividend of $2.08 per share will be paid in four
quarterly installments of $0.52 per share.

Wether a dividend hike is small or large i love it. while not a barn burner it does keep growing and that is all that matters. Since i own a small amount of shares 19.91 this amounts to a total of .79 cents a  year raise. remember every raise matters.
