Welcome back readers. I appreciate everyone who stops by and reads the blogs and leaves comments. It is awesome being able to interact with other people who are on their own quest for financial independence.
Another month has passed and there wasn’t a lot of action in my portfolio. No new purchases happened but I did move some of my holdings because of Loyal3 shutting down. I have been looking for some purchases lately but haven’t found nothing that interested me a whole lot. Hopefully some new opportunities will present themselves soon. Since there wasn’t a lot of action this month, I will go ahead and get right into the update.
During May, there were no new additions to my portfolio.
Apple (AAPL) – $1.14
General Mills (GIS) – $5.76 – Reinvested
Hormel (HRL) – $0.51
Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) – $21.59 – Reinvested
Stag Industrial (STAG) – $1.28
WestRock (WRK) – $5.73 – Reinvested
May was the second month of Q2 and accounted for $36.01 of my 2017 Dividend Income.
So far my dividends received looks like this
Dividends Received By Year
As we can see here I have had some great year over year growth. 585% is no laughing matter. Hopefully I can continue this kind of growth in the future but it is not something that I am expecting.
With no new additions to my portfolio it caused there to not be much change to the allocation of the portfolio. The slight change was only caused by the movement of the stock market its self. I like my current allocation because it seems to be very well spread out across many sectors.
This snapshot of my portfolio is actually from the first week of June but it is a pretty good representation of where my portfolio was for this update.
Here are the articles that I posted on here during May.

Since Loyal 3 Shut Down
May turned out to be a pretty calm month for me but my portfolio still works for me. That is the great thing about investing in dividend stocks. Even when I’m sitting idle, my portfolio will continue to work for me. I will continue to look for opportunities to put some new capital to work. If anyone has any good companies that they are watching, I would love to hear about them.
