Some of the stocks in my portfolio announced dividend hikes in the past few days.
AMGN announced a dividend hike by 10% and this increased my dividends in my account by $15.
T announced 2% dividend hike and this increased my dividends by another $7.56.
D increased its dividend by 2.5% and this added another $2 to my fund.
without adding new funds ,dividends increased by $25 .
so how many increases did you guys see in the last weeks.
Here are the dividends received for the month of August in my account.15 Companies paid dividends during this month and almost $14 a day.Total dividends received this month are $429.86.
T is the biggest contributor for me this month with AAPL close second .Compared with last August this was 54% increase ,i have been adding T for last few quarters and trying to get it 200 Shares.
Due to market fluctuations and some credit card spending to meet spending thresholds for bonus this month ,my Networth reduced by 2.25% .
so how did everyone do this month.
In the last few weeks market presented quite a few chances to average down on some of the companies in my account.
So i Bought 3 T @ 33.55 on 8/5.
8/5 Added 1 share of MMM at 167.27
8/23 Added 1 share of MMM at 156.47
These will add another $17 to my account.
Due to multiple credit card spending requirements for meeting Bonus ,i have to slow it down on the buying till i accumulate cash in my account.These Credit card bonus have paid for my Recent Vacation in orlando . Flights were on american airlines deals,hotels were hyatt card and Universal and legoland were Sweepstakes Wins.
In other news my current company is acquired by a much bigger Company . With this they stopped deductions from paycheck for 401k. My older company didn’t have any matching programs.Newer Company has 3% matching. So hopefully will try to max out matching by the end of the year.
Following are the dividends received for the month of May 2019. Total of 13 companies paid me this month for a total of $374.23. With T being the biggest contributor . AAPL a close second for this month.
Compared to last year its up 55% . it has been trending for the last 5 years slowly. Hopefully it will cross 400 Mark next May.
