More Dividends Update From December 2017


More Dividends - Dividends Income


December turned out to be a great month for me. I almost received a dividend income this month equal to that of the whole first quarter. I am very excited to reach a milestone of receiving a $100 in a single month and I feel like I will be able to do this very soon. After finishing my last book about Ben Franklin, I quickly jumped into another book which I will be posting about in the near future. I thoroughly enjoy the amount of reading time that I have had lately.

My portfolio has largely been on autopilot lately but it is still working for me nicely. Some new purchases are in the work and I am excited to share those with you in the future a long with several of articles that I am working on.

So let’s take a look back and see how my portfolio has changed during the month of December.

Additions

There was no major additions to my portfolio during the month for good reasons. I am looking into a couple of additions to my portfolio in the near future so keep your eyes open for this.

Dividends Received

December produced the most dividend income for me yet. As mentioned above I am highly anticipating the $100 in a single month milestone. I feel like I will easily be able to reach this before the end of Q2 in 2018.

**NEW RECORD MONTH**

Archer Daniel Midland (ADM) – $3.87 – Reinvested

Bank of America (BAC) – $8.25 – Reinvested

December was the last month of Q4 and accounted for $80.68 of my 2017 Dividend Income.

In total during 2017 I earned $453.13 in dividend income!

So far my dividends received looks like this

Dividends Received By Year

Year over year, I saw a 61% increase in dividends earned during the month of December. The reinvested dividends helped out here but the additions were the real powerhouses. I hope to be able to continue producing this kind of year over year growth but I am seeing the growth rate slow down the larger the amount of dividend income grows. I do not mind as long as I continue seeing growth because I will not be able to keep up the growth by purchases a long.

Portfolio Allocation

With no big additions to my portfolio there isn’t going to be a big change in the allocation. Any changes are just caused by the movements of the market.

Current Portfolio

My portfolio hasn’t changed a lot since November. The only changes that have happened are all because of the market. So I am pleased with my current holdings.

Conclusion

What a great way to end the year. A new record high for dividend income. Some great new articles were posted. Some good books were read.

The MoreDividends portfolio is chugging along nicely. I engage in a lot of investing outside of this portfolio and I will be sharing some of these vehicles in the future. I am constantly learning and always looking for new ways to grow my wealth and knowledge.

It has been a great year but I am looking forward to what 2018 brings for me.

As always I look forward to reading all of your comments and questions, until then….. happy investing!
