April 2019 Dividend Income

I received $88.70 in taxable April 2019 dividend income. My classes are taking my full attention and energy (hence the late April update – I know, I’d July), but it is nice to be so busy that I hardly pay attention to my portfolio!

Auto-pilot was my mindset this month. Can’t wait until I get over $100/month for my off-months.

Dividend Growth

Lots of old stalwarts from my earliest days of my portfolio. KO, PPL, and KMB were attractive because I knew the businesses. They’ve been around a long time, but aren’t the fastest growers. I’m most excited about CSCO this month. I’ve added a few more CSCO shares recently and am starting to see some tangible effects!

I’d have to invest $209 at my current 2.32% portfolio yield to increase my income that much.

Forward Dividend Income

Purchases – HRL and CSCO

Purchased 2 shares of Hormel (HRL) @ $40.14/share

With no new contributions, I’m just reinvesting dividends as they accumulate. This makes HRL a nice option because of the low share price!

Purchased 1 share of Cisco (CSCO) @ $55.10/share

I miss the days when I could pick up Cisco in the low $30! Nevertheless, I’d like to have Cisco higher up on my list of holdings, and I still like buying them at higher prices than I have in the past.

  1. Glad to see you posting again, Dozer.
    Good progress in April on the dividend front. Consistently receiving $100/mo. is on the horizon for you.
    I like the HRL purchase. Keep building that portfolio!
