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.
Month 2 is in books and quickly time is almost approaching quarter end. This month i have been paid by 16 companies .
Total Dividends received for this month is $445.76. Compared to last February this is like 30% more . Its almost like $15 received everyday of the month. Looking at the numbers from last year we can see the impact of dividend increases on AAPL,CAT and New additions made in last year .
ATT is approaching $100 dividends in Quarter that is really Good.
AAPL,CAT,ABBV are also contributing significantly. Some of the new stocks in this report compared to last Year are Abbv,MA,GD.
2020 Dividend Goals:
This Year the goal is to achieve 11k in Dividends .So far i have received 7.4% of the Goal.
On the last day of the quarter i added ABBV,i was watching it for last few weeks was going to add at 75 and decided to wait and with the purchase of Allergan the share price collapsed .I was itching to buy on that day and decided to see if it would go any more lower ,But it trended up and decided to add 15 shares at 71.45 with a commission of 4.95
This would bring my total ABBV Shares to 37 and reduced my average price to 77. This would add another $60 to my account.
I recently added ABBV to my account .This is a new position in my IRA account.I had it in my watch list for quite some time and i had it a limit order at 80.50 till cancelled at the end of april and it was executed this week. Had i waited 24 hrs more it would be more sweeter price.
22 Shares at 80.50 + 4.95 transaction fees bringing the total to 1775.95 . This will add another $94 to my account .The yield at my buy price is little higher at 5.3. Still have 3000 left for year to contribute.
Recently with WFC sliding ,it getting closer to my last bought price and i just added 1 share in my other account. Adding another $2 to my account.
Other Additions in my 401K .
So what are you guys adding in the last few weeks.
