Starbucks Raises Dividend 25%

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

If there was one company that I would love to own $20,000 in, it would be Starbucks. But I can't justify the valuation right now to go in big.  I plan to continue picking away at a couple shares at a time while its around 52 but in order for me to go in big I would like to see it fall to around 46.  I may consider selling some put options here soon as an alternative.  

Other companies that I either own or watch are below.

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.

Dividend Income Update Aug 2016

Dividend Income

This month I reported that one of my largest holdings increased its dividend paymout by over 30%.  This gave a huge boost to my annual income of $200.  

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

My monthly income was 110% higher than the same month a year ago and up -15% over last quarter.  I took in a woping $718.62 for the month of August.  My portfolio value increased from $235,164 to $240,640 which also includes my contributions of $5393.  

I ended the month with my annual future dividends at $8922 up from $8350 last month.  My original goal for 2016 was to hit $9000 in income which I should easily hit in September.  I think I may try for an even $10,000 in future dividend income by the end of this year.  All and all, that would be truly incredible feet.  Something that I never thought I would have accomplished 3 years ago when I set out on this journey.

Current Stats
  • 12 Month Income = $5743
  • Total 12 Month Future Dividends = $8922

Centamin Raises Dividend 33%

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Centamin had a excellent quarter and just announced a 33% raise to its semi-annual dividend.  This is not a stock I plan to hold forever but its certainly one that I want to continue to hold in a rising gold environment.  This quarters dividend is usually the smaller of the two, so my hope is that they decide to raise their fiscal end dividend early next spring also.  We will have to wait to see.  Last year the dividend was split up into .97 cents for the first half and 2 cents for the second half.  I could see where they end up raising both.  I own 20,060 shares, so with this raise my annual income has increased by $206.

https://finance.yahoo.com/m/de6b2b52-4912-3833-a7b0-c61341ff3d29/ss_top-5-efficient-gold.html

Q2 2016 Operational Highlights

  • Gold production of 140,306 ounces was a 12% increase on Q1 2016 and 30% higher than Q2 2015.
  • Cash cost of production of US$461 per ounce and all-in sustaining costs (AISC) of US$669 per ounce.
  • 2016 annual production guidance of between 520,000 and 540,000 (previously 470,000) ounces at a cash cost of production of between US$530 and US$550 (previously US$680) per ounce and AISC of between US$720 and US$750 (previously US$900) per ounce.
  • Record process plant throughput of 2.93 million tonnes (Mt); a 2% increase on the previous quarter.
  • Recovery of 89.5%, up by 1% over the first quarter, reflects on-going optimisation of the process plant.
  • The underground mine delivered 256kt of ore, (a 9% decrease on Q1 2016), at a grade of 9.3g/t (up 19% on Q1 2016).
  • Continued positive results from underground exploration drilling at Sukari, with an updated resource and reserve estimate scheduled during the second half of the year.
  • Development of a new exploration decline commenced in August 2016 within the north-eastern Cleopatra zone of Sukari Hill, aimed at testing the potential for further reserve growth and additional underground production of up to 1Mt per annum. Initial project expenditure is expected to be US$11.5 million.
  • Exploration continues to support the potential for near-surface and high-grade economic mineralisation in Burkina Faso. Encouraging results from the exploration programme in Côte d'Ivoire.

Financial Highlights

  • EBITDA of US$101.6 million was up 51% on Q1 2016, driven by an increase in realised gold prices and gold sales volumes together with improved operational efficiencies and lower overall costs.
  • Centamin remains debt-free and un-hedged with cash, bullion on hand, gold sales receivable and availablefor-sale financial assets of US$332.2 million at 30 June 2016, up US$56.5 million over the quarter.
  • Interim dividend of 2 US cents per ordinary share versus an interim payment of 0.97 US cents in 2015.
  • Basic earnings per share of 6.297 US cents; up 78% on Q1 2016. 

centamin

Centamin has basically hit my long term target over the last 8 months.  I do expect the stock to consolidate for 3-6 months around this zone before possibly launching higher.

Dividend Income Update July 2016

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

I just got back from a 2 week trip visiting Seattle and Vancouver with my family.  I also got a chance to attend the Sprott Natural Resources Conference in Vancouver.  I'll probably do a little overview of the conference in a separate post.  I got to hear the CEO's of 3 of my largest resources companies, Ivanhoe Mines, Pretivm Resources and Nevsun Resources.

Here are a couple photos from the trip.  The weather was absolutely amazing, with most days in the low 70's.
