Compared to 2020 dividends increased by $383 , some of them are like increased positions like AVO,MMM,JNJ and some in dividends increase and biggest of them is BBL like $180 in increased dividends.
Looking at the monthly dividend charts Quarter ends are my biggest months
Year over September Dividend Growth
2021 Dividend Goal: This year i had a dividend goal of 11K and so far i received $8500 in dividends and i am at 77% of the goal. I think i am on track to meet my goal .So far i received more than 50K in dividends in last 8 years.
One more month in books and this is the favorite time of the year with college football and NFL.
20 Companies paid me dividends this month and its getting better with each year.
Since late last year i have been dripping all my dividends and you can see from the table below the small gains in each of them. I added some ABBV and GD since last August and we can see big increases in them.
Compared to my August 2020 dividend income increased by 16%.
2021 Dividend Goal: For this year my Goal was 11k on dividends and i am 61% as of this month and i think i should be able to reach the goal.
One more Month in books and this year is running off quickly .This month Dividend crossed $600 due to special dividend from TROW. I received a total of $617 in dividends for this month, setting up new record for the month of July .It Jumped directly to 600 from 400 skipping 500 record.
Compared to 2020 July my dividends increased by 48%.
2021 Dividend Goal: I am at 56% of my Goal of 11K in dividends , so it looks like it might be very close to the goal .
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.
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.
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.
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.
I have always wanted to try and learn options ,been reading about them and was willing to try ,Finally i bought 100 shares of SPCE on Feb 20th for 38.05/share. On the same day i sold an covered call for $3.4/contract to sell 100 shares at $58 with an expiration date of 2/28.
Initially i wanted to try with discover shares in my IRA account in TD ameritrade but was denied .
Now this a speculative buy ,that i have been doing since last month ,I bought and sold TSLA,SHOP etc.
Now since the Market has tanked since i wrote the call i Kept the money $340 as the trading price didn’t even cross $40 ,but my investment is in loss since then.Yes I recovered little bit by writing the call.
I have been trying to see if i could do T or Another SPCE call in future.
