Where is time going? 3 months have already gone by in 2018 and the year’s madness continues. January and February were exciting months for investors and as it turns out, March wasn’t much different. Many great companies were suddenly trading at a discount and the dividend investing community jumped all over the buying opportunities! Now that the month is over and most of us have published our March dividend income reports, it is time for the next installment in our monthly income from the blogging community series! We will try to include as many of you as we can, but please don’t take it personally if you were not included this month! Now, let’s dive right in and see just how well the community performed in March!
Now that the first quarter is behind us, it’s time to check in on where I currently am at with my dividend portfolio. I want to share the current state of my dividend portfolio, related to market value, forward-looking dividends, yield and yield on cost. Additionally, I’ll describe the activities; such as, contributions, dividends received to date and the like. I thought this may give a great snapshot of where I currently am, the progress into this year and if I like the trajectory for the year. Time to check out the state of my portfolio!
Wow. What a month it has been. My busy season came to a roaring close, there were an insane number of March Madness upsets, and my personal favorite, baseball season is back! One of my favorite activities each month is sitting down with a nice beverage and aggregating my final dividend results for the month. I tally the results throughout the month, but there is something exciting about finalizing my totals and seeing the final amount of dividend income received and calculating my year over year growth rate. Since this is March, aka the final month of the quarter, this is a very fun activity! Let’s see how I performed this month. Here is my March dividend income summary.
One of the best months of dividend income to report. As dividend investors, we love the quarter ends, due to being the most popular month, as well as an even better month for those that have mutual funds and/or ETFs. The busy season is slowly slowing down, gosh I wish it would end, but dividend income always keeps me at least going for the time being.
