July’s Dividends

This month I saw a payout of $64.74 in dividends. This is the biggest payout so far this year which dwarfed last month’s payout by 63%. The main reason for this was because of CSAL stock in which I bought 60 shares of back in May. As you might have also noticed I decided to show my dividend payouts from my ROTH IRA account that I opened back in January.

July’s Stock Purchases and Sales

Another month down and another month I decided to sell shares in another company I bought. This time I sold all my shares in BRG mainly because I wanted to buy shares in CLDT before the PPS got to high. I plan on buying BRG in the near future because I think it has a lot of potential especially with dividend growth!

After this month’s sells and purchases my current cost expense is now $6,213.79 and my forward yearly dividend is now $491.00 which gives me an monthly average of $40.92. This brings my dividend yield to 7.90%.

Sold:
BRG 40 $12.40 $491.05 -$46.40

Happy investment and I will see you in retirement.

June’s Dividends

This was another month in which I saw a decent size dividend payout thanks in part to MAIN’s bi-annual special dividend. At the rate I am going I should see $50 within the next month or two and hopefully $75 by the end of the year.

June’s Stock Purchases and Sales

Stock # Of Shares Avg Share Price Total Cost Forward Dividend
Sold:
FTR 60 $4.84 $290.40 -$25.20
HCP 12 $34.55 $414.60 -$27.60
Bought:
APLE 40 $18.24 $729.60 $48.00
OHI 12 $33.26 $399.12 $27.84
STAG 10 $22.51 $225.10 $13.90
DLNG 30 $13.12 $393.60 $50.70

Like for May, in June I sold a few stocks that I believe are great stock but because I need to build up my portfolio sooner than later I had to get rid of a few that were going to cause short-term trouble. One of those were HCP which most know is splitting off portion of its portfolio into a new company which many believe will cause HCP to decrease its dividend payout thus I decided to sell HCP before we saw a price drop and replaced it with OHI. Another stock I think has long term potential is FTR but I do not see anything happen with either the PPS or Dividend anytime soon so I decided to sell my shares in those and pick up some more STAG shares. Selling FTR and HCP decrease my portfolio market value by $695.08 and decreased my forward dividend by $52.80

I used those funds, funds I had leftover in my account, and my monthly deposit to buy 40 more shares of APLE at the cost of $729.60, 12 shares of OHI for $399.12, 10 shares of STAG $225.10, and 30 shares of DLNG for $393.60 which came out to $1,747.42 with a forward yearly dividend of $89.74. This brings this year’s current cost expense to $5,644.45 and forward yearly dividend to $475.25 which makes the dividend yield to 8.42%.

Happy investment and I will see you in retirement.

May’s Dividends

As each month comes and goes my dividend payouts increase as I continue to buy more stock. While April was my best month so far. May was my second best month with having a payout of $22.60. Now that my payouts are getting bigger I will start putting them towards actually buying more stock and not just using them to pay fees. This is what compound investment is all about.

MAIN $7.20
HCP $6.90
STAG $4.63

FTR 30 $5.07 $152.10 $12.60

May is the first time I sold a good portion of stock and shares. As for most people the reasons I did this was stability in dividend payout and future dividend growth. I sold all my shares in BDCL, ARR and BX for a total of $1255.13 which decreased my forward dividend by of $128.88.

I used the funds from the stocks I sold and my monthly deposit and bought $2000.50 which brought this year’s current cost expense to $4,641.16. The forward dividend from the stocks I purchase came to $159.00 which brings my yearly dividend to $387.60 or $32.30 on average a month. My current dividend yield is now 8.35%

Happy investment and I will see you in retirement.

April’s Dividends

April brought in my biggest dividend payout so far this year. This mainly had to do with BDCL which is an ETN that has 2x leveraged on the stocks it follows/holds which means high dividend payout if the underlying stocks do well. Overall, this was a great dividend month which I will reinvest in future stocks.

Stock Dividend Payout
BRG $3.87
MAIN $7.20
STAG $4.63
BDCL $13.41
ARR $5.40
Total $34.51
