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.

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.

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.
