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.

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.
