Dividend Income

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

This month I found out the wonderful news that my largest position inside my dividend portfolio raised its dividend over 600%.  This added over $2700 in dividends to my income.  I was completely blown away by this news.  You can read about it here.

Looking at things in more detail, my monthly income was 93% higher than the same month a year ago and up 9% over last quarter.  I took in a whopping $859.86 for the month of February.  My portfolio value increased from $327,710 to $375,480 which also includes my contributions of $8918.57.  You can read about why I had such a significant jump in value here.  In a single month I managed to raise my income from $11581 to $15131.  This happened for two reason.  One I mentioned above because of the dividend increase with Centamin and two because I decided to take on a huge position in Gilead increasing my stake to over $40,000.

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 $77032.  Going forward I would like to contribute at least $70,000 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 $80,000.  In the month of February I added $8918 in new funds to the 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.
