Summer is brutal here in texas most of the days averaging above 90F ,Month 7 in books,It seems the clock is running too fast . My oldest son just turned 8 this month . I have received dividend income from 19 different companies . Total Dividends received is $363.90 .Compared to last year this was an increase of 6%.
Some of the 401k investing is showing up in the form of BHYIX.
My july month dividend income has shown growth over the last 5 years .
Most of the new funds are going into 401k and trying to make extra mortgage payments. Some of the extra mortgage payments are done using plastiq.These earn me extra credit card rewards .
Two of the companies in my portfolio announced dividend increases.
HSY & UNP these increases add another $23 to my annual fund.This is almost like purchasing 11 new shares of T.
I hope everyone has a good July income from dividends.
This week i made the following additions and subtractions to my account.
7/15 1 Share of MO purchased $48.95
7/16 1 Share of WFC purchased at 45.70.
7/19 15 Shares of ABBV at $68.8 . This will bring total shares to 52 in my account . With this purchase i maxed out Roth IRA. This stock is the pick of DGI community now 1.
All these purchases will add another $69 in dividends to my account.
I will pause Buying for few weeks ,to get things in order.
Q2 2019 is in Books ,Here are some overall portfolio details.
Overall for Q2 my net worth increased by 6% .
- New Funds invested : 2100 in Taxable accounts and 9700 in retirement accounts.Trying to max out 401K/Roth IRA.

Dividend Increases received in Q2 in my Portfolio :
These all will help me in achieving my goal .AAPL was my biggest increase with 100 shares.
Still trying to add ABBV to round it to 50 shares in my Account. All dividends are reinvested .
How Did everyone do in Q2.
In the last few Days i added the following Positions in my account. All of them are existing ones ,KR is one of my smallest position .
14 Shares of KR added at $22.29 including commision of $4.95 .This will bring total shares to 24 shares and Will add another $8.96 to my account.
1 Share of MMM at $169.9 ,will bring total shares to 10 . This will add another $5.76 to my account.
2 Shares of MO at $48.9 will bring total shares in all accounts to 31. This will add another $ 6.40
I will be watching ABBV for final purchase in my roth IRA account. All these purchase will add another $20 to the account. These small purchases are slowly making impact on the account.
Half of the year is completed and Here are the dividends received for this month. For 2019 i crossed 1000 Dollars in dividend income 2nd time. 41 Companies Paid me dividend this month.
Compared with 2018 this almost 800 dollars less . This happened due to reshuffling of my Funds in my retirement accounts and smaller dividend payment from RERGX due to no capital gain distribution like last year. Last year my retirement funds provided $1529 vs $576 this year . Some of the funds in my account doesn’t pay dividends.
Overall its not bad ,i like the progress happening in my Funds . Net worth Went up by 4% compared to June 1st.
On the last day of the quarter i added ABBV,i was watching it for last few weeks was going to add at 75 and decided to wait and with the purchase of Allergan the share price collapsed .I was itching to buy on that day and decided to see if it would go any more lower ,But it trended up and decided to add 15 shares at 71.45 with a commission of 4.95
This would bring my total ABBV Shares to 37 and reduced my average price to 77. This would add another $60 to my account.
Here are the latest dividend Hikes and Cuts in my account.
TGT announced dividend increase from 0.64 to 0.66. This will increase my dividends by $4.72
AGNC Reduced its dividend from 0.18 to 0.16 this reduced my dividends by $4.08
NLY reduced its dividend from 0.3 to 0.25c this reduced my dividends by 10.6

Due to all cuts ,My overall dividends increased by only 2.84
Following are the dividends received for the month of May 2019. Total of 13 companies paid me this month for a total of $374.23. With T being the biggest contributor . AAPL a close second for this month.
