Dividend Income Update Nov 2014

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

dividends

Another month has passed and its now time to update what I made in dividend income.  November was another very successful month on my way to becoming financially independent.  

You can find all my monthly updates located here.

In November, I took in $131.63, which is 548% higher than the income I took in from a year ago.  Over the last 12 months I have taken in $1163.58.  My goal is to receive over $1200 by the end of this year.  

The total value of Dividend Portfolio again decreased this month because it is heavly weighted to commodities.  The current value is at $62,619.  My future 12 month dividends originally increased above $3100 for the month but last week Seadrill decided to hault its dividend until things in the drilling sector improve.  Because of this, my 12 month future dividend is now at $2717.  I originally anticipated the cut but not 100% of the dividend.  For now I plan to hold the position to see if things within the energy sector improve.  With this move I now see the potential of Transocean also putting in a significant cut in the coming months.

I am very excited each month to see these dividends keep rolling in.  Looking ahead to the month of December, I plan to put an additional $2500-$3500 of capital to work in new or existing companies within my portfolio.  My December dividends are likely to break over $300 for the first time since I started my Dividend Income fund.

For the time being I have placed all purchases at Loyal3 on hold.  Last month they decided to do away with credit card purchases to save on transaction costs.  Although I understand the move, I personally don't see the incentive to use them anymore.  I already receive free trades through my WellsFargo brokerage accounts.  

I continue to like IBM, WYNN and the energy stocks here:  XOM, OXY, COP, BP, CVX, HP, NOV, HAL

Another month has passed and its now time to update what I made in dividend income.  October was by far another very successful month on my way to becoming financially independent.  

You can find all my monthly updates located here.

In October, I took in $269.88, which is 1608% higher than the income I took in from a year ago.  Over the last 12 months I have taken in $1052.27.  My goal is to receive over $1200 by the end of this year.  I should have no problem accomplishing this goal in the month of November because my estimates show that I should make around $140.

The total value of Dividend Portfolio decreased this month because it is heavly weighted to commodities.  Although it fell from $64,130 to $61,544, my future 12 month dividends increased from $2741 to $2912.  

I am very excited each month to see these dividends keep rolling in.  Looking ahead to the month of November, I plan to put an additional $2500-$3500 of capital to work in new or existing companies within my portfolio.

Currently I have been adding to UL in my Loyal3 account.  I continue to like IBM and the energy stocks here:  XOM, OXY, COP, BP, CVX
