Ending 2016 with a Bang

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Dividend Income

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

One of my 2016 goals was to hit $10,000 in future annual income.  I honestly didn't think I would come close, let alone blow the number out of the water by $708.  I started the year in a good place with $5645 of income and managed to practically double that by adding $5063.  In three years, I have gone from basically zero dollars of dividend income to now earning more than $10,000 in a given year.  for 2017 I have my heart set on hitting $15,000.  At the time of this writing my income is currently at $10,912, so by the end of this year I will have to accumulate $4100 more in future income. (I'll go over this more in my 2017 goals)

Not only did hit my goal for total income, I ended the month of December with $1427.52, breaking the 4 digit market for the first time.  Approx. $900 I totally expected but what I did not expect was around $500 in dividend income paid out by my purchase of GDXJ. I only planned to commit $60,000 for the full year of 2016. Well I blew that out the water by beating it by almost 17%.   I managed to add $12,097.25 for December, ending the year on a high note by adding almost $70,000 in new capital.

Going into the detail, my monthly income was 189% higher than the same month a year ago and up 91% over last quarter.  My portfolio value increased from $271,893 to $288,367. 

Current Stats
  • 12 Month Income = $7984.93

Dividend Income

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

I am happy to report that this month I achieved my goal of hitting $10,000 in future dividend income.  This is one of the goals that I honestly did not think that I could achieve but I guess that is why you have goals.  In less than three years I have gone from basically zero dollars of dividend income to now earning more than $10,000 in a given year.  WOW!  I am at the point now where I am really starting to see the compounding happening each and every month.  Lets say that hypothetically all my positions raise by 6% this next year, I will have earned an extra $600 by doing absolutely nothing.  I love that feeling.

Going into the detail, my monthly income was 106% higher than the same month a year ago and up 12% over last quarter.  I took in a whopping $802.94 for the month of November.  My portfolio value increased from $258,131 to $271,893 which also includes my contributions of $6098.  Overall my portfolio gained around $6861 in value or 2.66% last month if you take out my contributions.

Current Stats
  • 12 Month Income = $7063.49
  • Total 12 Month Future Dividends = $10252

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 Oct 2016

Dividend Income

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

This month was a frustrating one, although very successful.  I was only $10 away from entering into the quadruple digit club. Don't get me wrong, I am very happy at my progress this month.  My next shot will most likely come next year, possibly as early as May to break the $1,000 in monthly dividends.  In 3 short years I have taken my dividend income from virtually nothing to almost $1000 a month.  

Looking at things in more detail, my monthly income was 149% higher than the same month a year ago and up 198% over last quarter.  I took in a whopping $990.37 for the month of October.  My portfolio value increased from $256,261 to $258,131 which also includes my contributions of $8455.  Overall my portfolio lost around $7576 in value or 2.96% last month if you take out my contributions.

I continue to make steady progress towards hitting my $10,000 dividend income goal by the end of the year.  At the end of October, my 12 month future dividend income came in at $9716. That number is up from $9400 last month.

Current Stats
  • 12 Month Income = $6650
  • Total 12 Month Future Dividends = $9716

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.

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.
