Dividend Income Update Aug 2016

Dividend Income

This month I reported that one of my largest holdings increased its dividend paymout by over 30%.  This gave a huge boost to my annual income of $200.  

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

My monthly income was 110% higher than the same month a year ago and up -15% over last quarter.  I took in a woping $718.62 for the month of August.  My portfolio value increased from $235,164 to $240,640 which also includes my contributions of $5393.  

I ended the month with my annual future dividends at $8922 up from $8350 last month.  My original goal for 2016 was to hit $9000 in income which I should easily hit in September.  I think I may try for an even $10,000 in future dividend income by the end of this year.  All and all, that would be truly incredible feet.  Something that I never thought I would have accomplished 3 years ago when I set out on this journey.

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 $59,879.  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 August I added $5393 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.
