Dividend Income Update April 2016

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Dividend Income

With April now complete its time to update my Dividend Income and Trades for the month.  As you will see below, I moved around a lot of funds this month.  Selling companies off and buying new positions with covered calls to increase my income.  

For the first quarter of 2016 I had many positions that cut their dividends, from NOV, KMI, and COP.  I felt I was going nowhere as my dividend income basically remained unchanged for the first 3 months, but in April I took a giant leap forward thanks to the takeover of Reservoir Minerals.  This is a small mineral explorer that I purchased for the first time around 4 years ago.  Thanks to the takeover news by Nevsun, my original position is now up over 1400%. Nevsun is a great company that pays almost 5% in dividends, so I plan on holding all my shares for the foreseeable future.  With this position now within my dividend portfolio, it will increase my portfolio value by over $20,000.

On to my income....

My monthly income was 48% higher than the same period a year ago.  I took in $243.11 for the month of April.  My portfolio value increased from $130,560 to $189,472.  Part of this increase was because of the above news but the rest was just an overall increase in value of the portfolio.

Monthly Capital Contribution

Below you can view the total contributions made to my Dividend Portfolio since inception along with the 12 month total.  Currently my 12 month capital contribution total is coming in at $52,410.  Going forward I would like to contribute at least $50,000 a year to my dividend portfolio.  Even though this month shows a next to nothing deposit of funds, this is really not the case.  I have been moving funds around between accounts and next month should see an substantly increase that will offset this months lower than normal amount.

Dividend Income Update March 2016

Dividend Income

I just realized that I never did an update for the month of February.  I apologize for the oversight.  This months update I will briefly touch on February along with March.

Over the last 2 months I took a couple steps backward in my forward dividend income, as I decided to sell off some of my overbought positions.  But even with my reduced exposure I managed to pull off two incredible record months for my income.

My monthly income was 192% higher than the same period a year ago for February and up 55% for the month of March.  I took in $445.33 in February and $537.48 for March.  Last months income was just short of reaching a new all time high.

Dividend Income Update January 2016

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Dividend Income

The trend continues as I near $6000 in future dividend income.  For the last 2-3 months, my forward momentum has been like 2 steps forward and 1 step backward.  My energy holdings continue to reduce their dividends.  At the end of last year, KMI took a big blow to my overall income.  This month ConocoPhillips decided to reduce their dividend by 66%.  Although not overall detrimentally to my overall growth, but a reduction of around $30 none the less.  ConocoPhillips is a legacy position I initiated several years ago.  I always felt that the company had a good chance of cutting because they no longer had any downstream operations like Exxon or Shell.  That is why I have never added to my position like many other oil companies.

The month of January is my slowest overall month in terms of generating much dividend income.  My monthly income was 92% higher than the same period a year ago and -52% lower compared to my income in December.

Dividend Income Update December 2015

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Dividend Income

And 2016 is now upon us.  I can't believe 2015 is already over, as the year flew by.  I would have almost hit $6000 in future dividends if it weren't for the large cut in KMI.  I lost around $400 in income due to the cut.  For now I plan to hold on to KMI adding only to EPD in this sector. My goal for the end of the year was to hit $5000 and the fact that I hit $5645 is amazing in my book. Within in 2 years I have gone from making basically zero in dividends each month to now making an average of almost $500.  

The trend continues as I near $6000 in future dividend income. Something that has only taken me 2 years to achieve.  I was up only $20 this month in future dividend income which brought my total to $5645(Again this was due to the KMI cut of approx $400).  This month I took in my 2nd highest monthly income on record of $493.46.  My monthly income was 55% higher than the same period a year ago and 27% higher compared to my income in November.

The dividend portfolio was down 4% this month due to my large holdings in energy and materials.  These sectors continue to put a strain on my performance.  Below you can view the total contributions made to my Dividend Portfolio since inception along with the 12 month total.  For the last 10 months my contribution rate has been over $4000 each and every month with this month coming in at over $7000.  My overall contribution rate is tracking very nicely.  Currently my 12 month capital contribution total is coming in at $55864.55.  Going forward I would like to contribute at least $50,000 a year to my dividend portfolio.
