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.

Dividend Income Update Feb 2017

Dividend Income

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

This month I found out the wonderful news that my largest position inside my dividend portfolio raised its dividend over 600%.  This added over $2700 in dividends to my income.  I was completely blown away by this news.  You can read about it here.

Looking at things in more detail, my monthly income was 93% higher than the same month a year ago and up 9% over last quarter.  I took in a whopping $859.86 for the month of February.  My portfolio value increased from $327,710 to $375,480 which also includes my contributions of $8918.57.  You can read about why I had such a significant jump in value here.  In a single month I managed to raise my income from $11581 to $15131.  This happened for two reason.  One I mentioned above because of the dividend increase with Centamin and two because I decided to take on a huge position in Gilead increasing my stake to over $40,000.

Current Stats
  • 12 Month Income = $8918
  • Total 12 Month Future Dividends = $15131

Centamin Raises Dividend 675%

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Today I read the news and my first thought was that this was too good to be true.  Someone messed up somewhere.  But I double checked and triple checked the report and everything seems to line up.  Last fiscal year, Centamin paid out a total dividend of 2.94 cents per share.  This year they have dramatically increased the dividend due to the large cash buildup.  For 2016, they have decided to payout a total of 15.5 cents per share( Proposed final dividend of 13.5 US cents per share + the 2 US cent per share interim dividend last October ).  I own 20,060 shares, so with this raise my annual income has increased by $2306.90 for a total dividend payment in May 2017 of $2708.10.  I still cannot believe my eyes for the numbers that I am typing on this page.  I totally expect that the dividend will go back down next year, but its sure nice to receive the high payout and reward share holders.  This one dividend payout will make up 20% of my total income for the entire year.

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/centamin-plc-results-ended-31-070000851.html

You can view some of my past updates on the company here.

Operational Highlights

  • Production of 551,036 ounces, a 26% increase on 2015 and above the revised guidance range.
  • Cash cost of production of US$513 per ounce, down from US$713 per ounce in 2015 and below the revised guidance range, driven by higher production and reductions in mine production costs, mainly due to lower fuel prices.
  • All-in sustaining costs (AISC) of US$694 per ounce, down from US$885 per ounce in 2015 and below the revised guidance range, due to the factors affecting the cash cost of production.
  • Record processing throughput of 11.6Mt, an increase of 9% on 2015 and above our base case forecast rate of 11Mtpa.
  • Record open pit total material movement (waste plus ore) of 62.2Mt, an increase of 8% on 2015. 
  • Underground ore mined 1.02Mt (down 12% 2015) at a grade of 9.04g/t (up 40% on 2015), achieving a sustained annualised rate above our base case forecast of 1Mt per annum at a grade of at least 6g/t.
  • 2017 guidance of 540,000 ounces of gold at US$580 per ounce cash cost of production and US$790 AISC.
  • A new discovery from exploration in Côte d'Ivoire, with a maiden resource of 0.3Moz at 1.6g/t Indicated and 1.0Moz at 1.3g/t Inferred covering five prospects within a 5km radius area and remaining open at depth and along strike.
  • Evaluation of results from Burkina Faso is ongoing, which will guide further drilling planned for 2017.

Financial Highlights

  • EBITDA US$373 million, up 145% on 2015, due to higher gold prices, increased production and lower costs.
