December 2022 Dividend Update

 December 2022 Dividend Update


    As we come to the close of 2022, it is time to look forward and start to plan for next year.  Dividend Pursuit household have a lot of plans to accomplish, including welcoming Jr #2, possible travels to Portugal and Dominica Republic or Mexico for vacation next year.  We also have a lot going on on projects with our rental portfolios.  But first let's close 2022 by review December 2022, dividend income collected this month.


Without further ado we close 2022 with a bang for sure, for the first time we cross the four (4) digit mark in dividend collected in our total accounts.  In December 2022, we collected $1054.43 Wow just incredible.  The power of compounding is truly amazing with addition of extra capital spend in different stocks we hold. 

 In our taxable accounts we collected a $971.25, in dividend passively and in our taxable advantage accounts we collected a total of $137.18, in dividend. 

For next year we will stock automatic investing and focus on collecting the dividend for different adventure we are planning, we are taking a sabbatical for saying in pursuing early retirement to spent time with the family, we are still in our early 40's and we will have time to achieve that within the next five (5) years, but we will not have the time with our kids now.  It is best to focus on family and enjoy the ride now instead of waiting until we reach Financial Independence (FI) to do that. 

Our rental part of our portfolio we did not do so well. One building had a sewage backup so far our expenses to fix, repair and cleanup are around $12000.00.  Ouch!!!  we also have a unit empty on another building that has left us with a negative cash flow for the month in the tunes of $1500.00. 

Next month I ill be focusing on completing renovate and clean up the unit and getting it ready for rent in February 2022.

How did you do last month?  Did you do well with your dividend income?

Thank you for visiting, back next year.

November 2022 Dividend Update

 November 2022 Dividend Updates


Where have the time gone?   It has been busy month so far, with many delayed property improvements taken place and we recently had a tenant moved out and are in the process of turning the property before we rent it out again.  The last tenant was a great tenant, so we hoping to find a new great tenant for the property.   I am recovering from Pneumonia so this has added additional stress to getting things completed on time.  Unfortunately, we won't be able to do so.  We also had an emergency in another property with main sewage line backing up into the basement, this will be a costly repair and fix.  

But lets focus on the dividend collected in the month of November 2022, instead and without further ado here is what we collected last month.


We collected a total of $840.38, in dividend last month.  This is a record month for us 😀.
We collected $152.36, in our taxable advantage accounts and $688.02 in our taxable accounts.

Wow, amazing month for sure, cannot wait to see what December brings next month, can we surpass November number?  We will have to wait and see what December brings as a gift.

Our rental also Provides $1200 in passive income last month, making it a total of $2040.28, in passive income last month.  Truly amazing.  Next month won't be as good in our Rental portfolio unfortunately. 

How did you do last month?
Did you have a great month as well?

October 2022 Dividend Income

October 2022 Dividend Update


    October has come and gone, the days seems to be going os quickly and running on the hamster wheel surely contributes to that.  That is my primary motivation to get out of the rat race and focus on my family and wellbeing enjoy life.  To that end I buy high quality dividend paying stocks and invest in real estate to build passive income to cover my expenses so one day I can run away from the rat race and live the life in my own terms.



So let us review last month dividend accumulate passively and see where we are currently in time to achieve Financial Independence (FI).  I don't really consider there Retirement Early (RE) part of FIRE as a goal.  I envision my self working either on my property or some other field which can allow time for work life balance.

Without further ado here is what we collected last month. A total of $522.49 in passive dividend collected for the month.  It is breakdown between taxable accounts and tax advantage accounts.

On the Taxable accounts we collected $461.20 in dividend income and on our tax advantage accounts we collected $61.29.  This is because most of our retirement account is invested in the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) accounts as a federal employee I will also collect a modest pension which most likely will de defer until later. 

On our Real estate venture we have decided to collect from property #1 $695.00 and from property #2 we collect $542 which is a total of $1237 in monthly passive income, this will total $1759.49 in passive income for the month. 

the dividend is being re-invested monthly, although I stop automatic reinvestment and focus on buying beaten down stocks I hold.  With the market down as of late I may sell some for tax harvesting to save on tax before year end.

How did you do last month?

Did you had a good month last month?

September 2022 Dividend Update

 September 2022 Dividend Update


Wow, where have the time gone.  I apologized for the delay in reporting.  it has been a crazy month for sure.  Mr. Market keeps seesaw with daily market gyrations.  As a long term investors I have been investing on a regular basis and with each passing month the dividend keeps on growing.


So without any further ado here is what we collected in September 2022:


Total dividend Collected $745.38, truly amazing month surely our best month since we started this journey to Financial Independence (FI).  In our Tax advantage accounts we collected $90.16, at least this will pay for our internet expenses when we retired after I reach 59 1/2 year old 😀.  On our taxable accounts we collected $655.22.  


Last month was an amazing month, we also collected passive income in our properties.  Property #1 collected $695.00 and Property #2 collected $542.00 for a total of $1892.22 in real money we can use now.  However, the money was reinvested to keep growing our dividend and possible a future property in the near future. This also covered 40% of our expenses for the month.


How did you do last month?

Did you had a great month as well?

August 2022 Dividend Updates


 August 2022 Dividend Update


     A new month and busy as ever, but nothing like taking the time to count the dividend collected last month.  Mr. Market keeps going up and down in a seesaw move every single day the market gyrations for sure can cause heart attack if you pay to munch attention to it.  I find that finding stable paying dividend companies and keep building my shares with every opportunity is a better long term solutions for me.

Have you been investing and continue to do so with every market gyrations?

Lately I have been selling some stocks I don't see me holding longterm and also this will allowed me to focus on few stocks.  We have gone from 87 individual stocks to closer to 65 with the goal to trim down to 60 or fewer this year.  Of course the profit in some cases the proceeds have been reinvested in the companies I will be keeping long term.

But with out any further ado, let's review last month dividend collected.  We collected a total of $693.25, in dividend last month.  Of which $149.34 was in our tax advantage accounts and $543.91 was in our taxable accounts. 

WOW, the dividend keeps adding up with each passing months.  Last month the dividend would had cover our Car payment $399.20, Verizon fios $74.99, Amazon subscription 14.99,  parking payment $35.00 and T-Mobile cell $168.00.  This will still leave $1.07, which I could had bought a pack of chewing gum.  Truly an amazing month for sure.  

In the real estate side of things we also had a positive cash flow for the first time in a long time in our rental properties.  All our units are finally rents and everyone is up to date on payment now.  We will be working in replenish our reserves and build up cash for a future real estate rental property to add to our portfolio, which will get us closer to FI in the next two (2) years.

How did you do last month?  Did you also had a good month?

July 2022 Dividend Update

 July 2022 Dividend Update


Where have the time gone.  It feels like June was just over, now July is over as well and we are halfway toward end of August.  Well it is time to count the dividend from last month albeit late to the party here hahaha.  My family just return from 7-day trip to Orlando and Tampa area, we did not plan any activities and hope to just relax at the pool and beach.  We accomplish both so my happiness level is at 7 out of 10 currently.  

But without further ado let us review the dividend we collected last month.  For the month of July 2022, we collected a total of $435.58 in passive dividend.  We collected $58.09 in our taxable advantage accounts and $377.49 in taxable accounts.  Another great month as we continue to collect dividend passively. 

From dividend we collected I could had cover our car payment on the 2019 Toyota Tacoma for $399.20 and my monthly parking for $35.00.  But the dividend collected was reinvested to keep growing the dividend organically and with additional purchases.  

How did you do last month?  I Hope you had a great month as well.

June 2022 Dividend Update

 June 2022 Dividend Update


    Where have the time gone?  I apologized for the late post, the last two months have been very hectic.  We had two tenants move out on two different buildings and two different city.  It took almost the whole month to turn the apartment and rent them out.  Now I can take a little bit and focus on my dividend growth strategy.  


Without further ado let's review last month dividend collected.  Last month we collected a total of $654.45 in dividend from all our accounts. 


Another month over $600 in dividend collected passively.  Just a great feeling!!!

During June 2022, we collected a total of $100.45 in our taxable advantage accounts.  That means we collect a total of $554.00 in our taxable accounts, which is a third away from my target.

Last month we did not re-investe all our dividends on the same stocks, but we used to buy dividend stocks that were down during that month.  In the end it will all even out I think.

How did you do last month?  Did you had a great month as well?
