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.

2021 April Dividend Income report

 April Month is  done and  time is flying very quickly .This month 19 companies paid me dividends and compared to last year  2 new companies paid dividends and  they are CINF and JPM.

Total Dividends received this month are $446.87 Compared to 2020 its almost like no gain.

As seen from the tables below they are some cuts that happened in my account and not fully returned like FXAIX,NLY and CXW. CXW i sold the company  last year and dividend income is not completely replaced. VTR also i sold part of the position.

Dividend Reinvestment:

Since early this year some of the  dividends are  being Dripped. This  month following dividends are dripped.

2021 Dividends:  So far till April i have received 25.3%  of my goal (11K Dividends),same time last year i was at 22%,so this year its progressing at better rate.

2021 January Dividend Report

 2021 Already began and one month Gone. Slowly Life returning to normality and its  time for one more dividend report. After many  reports of  income increase reports ,this one will be a decrease compared to last January report. This month i received $355 .85 in dividends which is $15 less than Jan 2020 income. One new Name in Jan 2021 report compared to 2020 is CINF.

Dividends Cut: Dividend Cuts  from last year  are still  big impact on this month report ,as you can see  it reduced my dividends by $70. Hoping to see if DIS will resume their dividends some time this year.

Dividend/Options Income : This Year i would like to keep my Goal of 2020 of 11k and will see if i can  achieve the Goal. I Started doing  covered calls last year and it brought be me some income, I didn’t include that one dividends. 
I will be adding some funds and buying some  stocks ,but i am hoping to get closer  to 11k goal  either with dividend increases or  401k buys that happen twice a month.

2020 December Dividends

 2020 is in books , one of the most unexpected years at least in my generation. Now coming to dividends i had a high hopes for December, but it turned out anticlimactic .I received less dividends this year compared to last December and it was significant.

One of the reason for significant reduction was very small distribution from RERGX one of my biggest funds .In 2019 I received more than 1300 in dividends and distribution from them.

Overall Dividends received were $1677,This is 38% decrease from 2019.But overall dividends compared to 2019 went by $10. This Year my goal was to get 11k in dividends and I achieved 82% of the goal. This year i will raise the goal to 12k Dividends. It will be very interesting to see where I will land.

Overall with all the things considered I  am ok with where things ended.

Expired options -Covered calls SPCE,ASPS.

 Since I Acquired  100 shares of SPCE  in February of this year at $38.05 I started writing covered calls  to recover the capital and always write the call out of the money ,so that i wont lose the shares , now this yields low option price and I am ok with that.

So Far I wrote  16 covered calls either weekly or biweekly if the option price is low. 3 times I bought my call back so that I can write an expensive call this costed me total of $16. This way I recovered $654.

ou can see my current call expires next Thursday .Only last week when SPCE rallied all the way to $35.73 ,that was only close one.

ASPS: This is another one i have been writing monthly calls ,as there is not much activity on weekly calls.

Now this one is interesting ,as my latest call is almost in the money and it seems to be certain to get called away .I am Ok with it being called away also. As my average share price is less than $10.Now if it doesn`t get called ,will be writing $15 Call as that seems to fetch more money.

Dividend Increases

So Early  this year many dividend cuts, I stopped following the increases in early june  as they were very few here and there in my portfolio. Now almost at the end of the year, I went back  till June to check how many increases i had how much impact it had on my account.

So i had 11 increases in my account adding up to $75 to my dividends. ABBV had the biggest impact.

Overall this year I  had $173 added in dividend increases  for my account. My portfolio yield is around 2.2%  This mean like new capital like 7k in capital.
