Dividend Income

Another month has passed and its now time to update what I made in dividend income.  I passed another major milestone this month by passing $4000 in future 12 month dividend income.

In April, I took in $163.85, which was 226% higher than the income I took in from a year ago.  

Current Stats
  • 12 Month Income = $2097.72
  • Total 12 Month Future Dividends = $4015
    • I can't believe that since I started on this journey just 15 months ago I have managed to increase my future dividends to over $4000.  I am on track to hitting my end of the year goal of $5000

  • Dividend Income
  • Account Value
  • 8 Month Moving Average

Monthly Capital Contribution

April was a fabulous month in terms of percentage gain within the portfolio.  It grew over 12.7%, which has been the largest one month gain in many years.  I attribute most of these gains to the recent strength in energy stocks.

The total value of my Dividend Portfolio increased by over $14000 this month of which $4100 was new capital contributions.  The current value is at $93206.  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 $44433. Over time I would like to see the red moving average continue to increase over time.

Portfolio Weighting

Some of the smaller percentaged sectors continue to creep up as I add some positions.  I would slowly like to reduce the overal percentage in energy but for now I am ok with it being such a large position. 

Next Month

I am really looking forward to May when I should receive almost $600 in dividends.

I continue to like KO, PG, JNJ, TROW, BEN, SII.to
