Dividend Update - September 2012

September was an awesome month for dividend payouts with 13 companies paying me in my FI portfolio and 3 in my Roth IRA.  The month also brought my first $100+ month of dividends for my FI portfolio which I blew past with $165 in dividends.  With the recent addition of 100 shares of INTC my forward 12-month dividends is over $930.  The INTC shares will provide an extra $90 per year in dividend before reinvestment or increases and an extra $22.50 this year with their December payout.  I'm slowly getting close to the $1,000 mark and 2013 will see me surpass that mark on an annual basis.

  1. Congrats on a huge month of dividends! Great stuff.

    Your portfolio is really starting to take shape now. Keep up the good work and you'll be richly rewarded for it.

    Best wishes!

    1. Thanks. That's the plan. I almost doubled my annual payout with just September. It's pretty crazy to see. Now I need to find some more undervalued DG stocks because I'll have a good chunk of money coming through soon.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. You have nice looking portfolio. Congrats on the dividend earnings! Always exciting watching it grow eh?

    1. It'll be better when I can start selling off some of my ESPP shares next June because my YOC for them is only 1.35%. When I can turn those into ~3.00% growing yields I'll be much happier. I do enjoy watching it grow. It's my little seed that I've planted.

      Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Nice -- congratulations on getting over $100 in dividends during the month!

    1. Thanks! It was great to finally cross the $100 mark for a month. It'll be so much better when I'm averaging that.

      Thanksgiving for stopping by!
