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?

May 2022 Dividend Income

May 2022 Dividend Report 


Month of May is finally over, so much happened last month that it felt that the month flew by.  Mr. Market saw a seesaw only create fear and suspense on a daily basis. The war in Ukraine and the inflation only creates doubt over long term.  What to do for a dividend investor seemed to be a daily question as we navigate to the day to day last month.  Over the years that I have been investing I can only ponder on the past outcomes and see the long term sustainability of investing on a regular basis.


With that been said let us now review our last month dividend income for the month of May 2022.  Last month we collected a total of $665.95 in dividend income over all our accounts.  We did sell some and took profit and re-invested in beaten down stocks that we wish to hold long term.  We now have a full positions in few stocks that we down and continue to invest on a regular basis.



We collected a total of $164.54 in our tax advantage accounts and collected a total of $501.41 in our taxable accounts.  Overall we did very well.  Our net worth also grew last month over $800000.00 for the first time. Over 70% is in our real estate holding and we continue to look for ways to save and possibly built upon our real estate holdings in the next few years.  Realistically we are now getting closer to our Financial Independence (FI) number and we starting to thing of ways to conserve cash.  for the rest of this year that will be our primary concerns and continue to built our emergency fund to six (6) months to year in reserves. 

Hope you had a wonderful month last month?  How was your dividend collected last month?  What are your plans to FI and are you closer to your goals?

Dividend Update for month of April 2022

 Dividend Update April 2022


New month, Mr. Market continue to be very volatile, the Inflation, the war in Ukraine and many more worthy news daily that can cause fear and panic to sell.  However, we are mostly buy and hold investors.  But this does not mean we do not sell when necessary.  Last month and half we sold few positions only to diversify our holdings.  Overall I am pretty content with our current holdings.  Some positions took a nose dive with the current market volatility which only cemented by thought process to diversify, since we purchase some of those holding back in March 2020 and April 2020, so we were at the high end of some of those stocks.

However, it is a new month so without further ado let us review last month total dividend collected for the month of April 2022.





Last month we collected a total of $554.74.  Wow, That is three (3) months in a row with over $500 in dividend.  We also have collected year -to-date a total of $2125.23 in dividend this year so far.

We collected in $92.86, in our tax advantage accounts and we also collected $461.88 in our taxable accounts.  We continue to see growth each month compared to previous year amount this month we increased our dividend 64% from April 2021.  The power of compounding with new investment is fueling our dividend increases.

March 2022 Dividend Update

 March 2022 Dividend Update


Albufera, Portugal

    With some many terrible news around the world it is so hard to even talk about money and dividend collected.  Oil Price so high world wide has really impact individual and family budgets worldwide.  The War in Ukraine and the devastation and the loss of human life only dampens the desired to watch TV.  I have been avoid watch the news as there are no good news on TV.  

However, we cannot control most of what happens worldwide, this only enforce the idea to plan for the future and hope for the best.  One way my family does this is to plan our Financial Freedom Retire Early (FIRE), we tend to focus on the FI part by investing in the market and real estate.  I don't report our real estate holding much here just as I don't plan to count with our Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) government form of 401K I am investing in as a government employee.  But we do focus on our passive dividend income, which we report monthly here.



                                                                    Sagres, Portugal


Last month we had a busy month.  We spend 10 days in Algarve region, Portugal and two (2) days in Lisbon.  The food was incredible good and this allowed us to recharge our batteries and refocus our energy as we return back to the states.  Maintenance also occupy three (3) of my days off from my Job, but this also create enough passive income on the real state side to fund our travel, couple with the points earn in our Capital one Venture credit card.


Without further ado let us review dividend collected last month via all our accounts:

We collected a total of $618.03 in dividend last month and for the quarter one (Q1) we collected a total of 1570.49 in dividend. 




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

Let us now review where the dividends came from.  We collected $87.83 from our taxable advantage accounts. We also collected $530.20 in out taxable accounts. 

Now let us review what we could have cover in our expenses side of the ledger.

We could had paid our Car loan $399.40, our Verizon internet service $74.99, fill the tank in our Toyota Tacoma once $72.00 and I paid my EZ- Pass $50.00, still leaving $21.64 for lunch.

Overall we had great month.  We also sold and took some profits from XOM, CVX, EOG and CFG.  The Profits we re-invested in some laggards stocks and we also initiate some new positions.

February 2022 Dividend Update

 February 2022 Dividend Update


    With so many issues going on around the world Mr. Market have been experience a lot of volatile

 in the last month.  With current war in Ukraine, you can only feel for the people of Ukraine and hope they are ok.  While this has create a volatility in the market, we keep see our net worth keep increasing despite all the negative news that has the market seasaw on a daily basis, of course this is mostly due to our rental portfolio.  However, this is a new month and it is time to report and review my last month dividend income that was earn passively.  


Let's review it without further ado:

Last month we collected $505.30, wow another month over $500 collected passively and $952.56, year-to-date. 

We received $349.44, in our taxable accounts and $155.86 in our tax advantage accounts. 
How did you do last month?  I hope you also had a great month.

Now let us review what bills we could had pay last month?  For starters we could had pay our car payment $399.00, Verizon high speed internet $74.99 and gas bill was $27.42.  So we could had cover three (3) bills if we had choose to take the dividend in payment, Instead we are currently re-invest all the dividend back in the stocks.  This may change In the future were we take the dividend and reinvest in stocks that are down instead of up to lower our cost basis.
