2021 June Dividend Report

Q2 Completed and now i am ready with another monthly dividend report. This one surprised me as  one of my funds payed me a huge dividend.  This month i received total dividends of $2250.84,Big reason  for  this is payment from RERGX, last year  and this quarter they paid negligible dividends .Another reason for my confusion is  RERGX split the payment as capital gain, but most websites are reporting as dividend.

Comparing with 2020 June  this is a big gain due to Rergx,but we had other increases in dividend payees.

Jun-17Jun-18Jun-19Jun-20Jun-21
4462035.5412061215.972250

Comparing to 2020 June  i had 3 dividend reductions  with WFC being big cut of $45.

2021 Dividend Goal: With the unexpected payment from RERGX, I am at 50.5% of my goal of 11k.For month of July special dividend payment from Trow should also help.

Recent Buy -GD,BMY & SELL- AMC

 Earlier this year I took a speculative position  in AMC  ,was expecting a similar ride like GME and in last two weeks it came to fruition .

I sold 55% of my AMC Position to grab my Regular dividend Paying stocks. 

With the profits  and capital from that sale I invested in BMY a new position in my account and added 3.78 shares of GD to bring that position close to 25 shares.

These new purchases will add another $86 to my account and i invested around $3k for a yield of 2.9%.

2021 May Dividend Report

Month 5 is in  Books and this month i received more than $500  in dividends.

T is one of the bigger payer and coming close second  is AAPL.

This may change as T announced some changes  starting early next year.

This year May dividends are less than 2020. Due to changes  in my portfolio that i made last year.

I sold out RY/BMO  position and re-added small RY position . GD position increased.

2021 Dividend Goal: Total dividends received  so far in 2021 are close to 3300 and its like 30% of my goal of 11k for this year.
