Dividend Income Update Sept 2016

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Dividend Income

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

My monthly income was 72% higher than the same month a year ago and up 12% over last quarter.  I took in a whopping $745.97 for the month of September.  My portfolio value increased from $240,640 to $256,261 which also includes my contributions of $4944.  

At the end of September not only did I break my goal of $9000 in future dividends, I pretty much crushed it by coming in at $9400.  That number is up from $8922 last month.

Current Stats
  • 12 Month Income = $6057
  • Total 12 Month Future Dividends = $9400

This month I am providing a new graph which shows my historical and projected income. Each of the dips on the red curve are months in which I received major dividend cuts.  I have always seems to bounce back each and every month.

Key:

  • Dividend Income by Month
  • 12 Month Moving Average

  • Historical Income for the past 12 Months
  • Projected Income for the next 12 Months

Monthly Capital Contribution

Below you can view the total dollar contributions made to my Dividend Portfolio since inception along with the 12 month total in red.  Currently my 12 month capital contribution total is coming in at $59,788.  Going forward I would like to contribute at least $50,000 a year to my dividend portfolio and as of the last 12 months I seem to be crushing that number since I am currently closer to $60,000.  In the month of September I added $4944 to my dividend portfolio.

Portfolio Value

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.
