September 2019 is in books and almost you can see the year end .Summer has been brutal here in texas ,last 3 months were extremely hot . This september i hit an high for dividends for the month of the september and i hit 4 digits for september. This month i got paid $1178 from 41 companies. Almost receiving $40 a day which is nice ,it’s like working another 4 hrs at $10.
Finally crossed 5000 in dividends for this year and since i started tracking dividends in 2014 i have crossed 32K in total dividends,got to see if i can cross 35k for the year 2019 and maybe 50k in total dividends received for all years since 2014. These are some high goals.
Big contributor for this month dividends are from the retirement accounts.
Biggest payee in taxable accounts is BBL,i received more than $100.
Compared to last few years this year the growth has slowed down,as i have been not investing like before.
Compared to 2018 dividends increased by 4.9%. Other than Dividend reinvestments no significant investments happened in this month . Waiting for the new 401K to start with the new company so i can start investing in it.
So how did everyone did in september.
This week i made the following additions and subtractions to my account.
7/15 1 Share of MO purchased $48.95
7/16 1 Share of WFC purchased at 45.70.
7/19 15 Shares of ABBV at $68.8 . This will bring total shares to 52 in my account . With this purchase i maxed out Roth IRA. This stock is the pick of DGI community now 1.
All these purchases will add another $69 in dividends to my account.
I will pause Buying for few weeks ,to get things in order.
On the last day of the month i added 3 shares of WFC and 16 Shares of GILD to average down a price from $79 to $70. GILD was added in my roth IRA.It has been long time since i added WFC.
These 2 Purchases will add another $45.72 in my account.
Side note: I won a sweepstakes entry for 2 tickets to universal studios Hollywood.Recently started playing coke cola sweepstakes .
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 .
