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.
One more month in books and we are almost at the end of the year. What a strange year, no one expected to be this kind of year with pandemic and huge fall in stock market and rise again.
I have received $543 in dividends for the month of November ,Almost like $17 every day of the month.
Compared to previous November its up 21% .Slowly more months are crossing the threshold of $500 .
So far out of the 11 months 6 months crossed 500 and 3 months crossed 1000 in dividends
For this month T and AAPL are the biggest payers for me. 2020 Dividend Goals: I had a goal of 11k in dividends received and with this month payments I received 7.4k in dividends . For December I need to receive 3600 in dividends ,for comparison last year I received 2.6K dividends in December 2019 I need 33% increase over last year.
August month 8 is in Books and time is flying even quicker. I have received dividends from 21 companies this month across my accounts.
I received $502 in dividends this month and its a new record for me for the month of august even with big cuts in WFC. Compared to last August its an increase of 16%. With AAPL/T/CAT being the biggest payers.
As seen it has been good growth for the last few years .
I crossed 5K dividends with this month dividends.I had a Goal of 11K Dividends for this year and with all these cuts it will be a tough ask,as of this month i reached 46% of goal. If i received same amount of dividends for the last 4 months i will be 9.7K.
Time is flying ,world is different ,Hope we get the treatment/vaccine soon. July is in books.Overall 20 Companies paid me dividends this month ,From companies that paid me dividends in AprilCXW completely Cut dividends and VTR and Fundrise reduced by $25 each . Overall dividends received in July are 416.32 which is a new record for the month of July Since i started tracking my dividends. Compared to my 2019 July this is 13% increase with all these cuts.JPM/CINF Are new additions to the portfolio.
