Since I tend to take profits more often than the typical buy and hold dividend investor, my Cost Basis and Portfolio Value ratio are not an accurate reflection of my overall profits within the portfolio.

Dividend Income Update MAR 2017

Dividend Income

If you wish to view any of my past monthly updates you can find them here.

So last month I reported on the news that my largest dividend position raised its dividend over 600%.  What I didn't expect was that the dividend would show up on the last day of March.  For now my graphs below are going to be very skewed because of how much I took in last month.   For some reason I can't figure out how to adjust google charts to show in logarithmic.  I guess his is a good problem to have.  :)

Looking at things in more detail, my monthly income was 650% higher than the same month a year ago and up 182% over last quarter.  I took in a whopping $4028 for the month of March.  My portfolio value increased from $375,480 to $382,157 which also includes my contributions of $7354. 

Current Stats
  • 12 Month Income = $12409
  • Total 12 Month Future Dividends = $15556

Each of the dips on the red curve are months in which I received dividend cut from one or more of my positions.

TD - Likely to Fall Further

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Trade Ideas

I didn't get this out in time before TD broke its bear flag, but I feel the stock still has some more downside left. It was setting up as a textbook bear flag and sure enough today it broke support.  Its next support should be between 45.50 and 47.00 area.  That is where I plan to add to my core holdings.
