More Dividends Update from April 2019
April turned out to be a very busy month for me. My W2 job has asked me to take over and cover the night shift. While this is not the ideal situation, I agreed to it for now. It has me working while everyone else gets to sleep but it will allow me some new opportunities as well.
This month my portfolio has continued to drive itself. It wasn’t for my lack of trying though. I found a couple of potential purchases that I was very interested in but I just couldn’t pull the trigger on any of them yet. I am going to keep looking until I find something that works well with my portfolio.
I have started employing some other investing strategies that I will be posting about in some upcoming articles.
Until then let’s take a look at how well the portfolio performed over the last month.
During the month of April there were no new stock additions.
This month provided me with a new 1st month of the quarter high record. It’s not very much but I am glad to see the growth
Cardinal Health (CAH) – $4.81 – Reinvested
Genuine Parts (GPC) – $4.75 – Reinvested
Coca Cola (KO) – $5.94 – Reinvested
Manhattan Bridge Capital (LOAN) – $.65 – Reinvested
Altria Group (MO) – $5.83 – Reinvested
Realty Income (O) – $6.15 – Reinvested
STAG Industrial (STAG) – $1.31
Walmart (WMT) – $5.72 – Reinvested
April was the first month of Q2 and accounted for $35.16 of my 2019 Dividend Income.
In total during 2019, I have earned $244.18 in dividend income!
So far my dividends received looks like this
Dividends Received By Year
Year over year, I saw a 79.8% increase in dividends earned during the month of April. I have made a couple of additions since last year and that is what helped fuel the YOY growth.
With no new additions since last month, there have been no major changes in my portfolio allocation.
With no new additions my portfolio is pretty much the same. Some reinvested dividends and market fluctuations have caused all of the changes.
Here are the articles that I posted on MoreDividends.com during April from oldest to newest.

More Dividends saw a couple of dividend increases during April. That is just a reminder that I have chosen to use a great strategy. The portfolio continues to grow even when it is doing all of the work.
I seem to be struggling to find some opportunities in the market right now. I have my eyes open and have been doing the research, just haven’t found anything to pull the trigger on yet. I will keep looking because I am very excited to report on a new purchases.
As always I look forward to reading all of your comments and questions, until then….. happy investing!

Yes sir. It is always nice knowing a fellow shareholder. Thanks for stopping by!
Great to see your YoY progress, Jason. I share MO, O, and CAH with you this month.
It’s terrific knowing your portfolio will continue growing even when you can’t invest. Love the dividend raises.
Do you reinvest your dividends, or collect them up for a strategic investment when the time is right?

Currently, I reinvest all dividends. When I am producing more dividend income, it is something to consider to self direct the investment of the dividends. Thanks for stopping by ED!
Great month and you are moving right along we can see the progress from when you first started.
