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.


I couldn't believe how cheap the flowers were in Pikes Market



Dividend Income

After being out of contact for almost two weeks I have a lot to get caught up on.  So I am going to dive right into my numbers for the month of July, 2016. 

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

My monthly income was 60% higher than the same month a year ago and up 37% over last quarter.  I took in $332.37 for the month of July.  My portfolio value increased from $216,606 to $235,164 which also includes my contributions of $3935.  

I ended the month with my annual future dividends at $8350 up from $8164 last month.

Monthly Capital Contribution

Below you can view the total dollar contributions made to my Dividend Portfolio since inception along with the 12 month total in red.  Currently my 12 month capital contribution total is coming in at $59,066.  Going forward I would like to contribute at least $50,000 a year to my dividend portfolio and as of the last 12 months I seem to be crushing that number since I am currently closer to $60,000.  In the month of July I added $3935 to my dividend portfolio.


Portfolio Value


Since I tend to take profits more often than the typical buy and hold dividend investor, my Cost Basis and Portfolio Value ratio are not an accurate reflection of my overall profits within the portfolio.
