To add some variety to the website, I am providing images from some of the amazing trips I have experienced over the years.   I took the following photograph in October of last year in Portland, Maine.

Highlights:

Normally I like to update what I bought and sold on a weekly basis, but over the last several weeks I have been very busy.  

So my speculation in the Godaddy IPO was very successful.  I speculated that Godaddy IPO would go up by more than 15% on opening day. Instead I was handsomely rewarded with not a 15% gain but an incredible 31% gain.  I decided to take my chips and move on, so I sold on the first day of trading.  My plan now is to start purchasing back some of the companies that I recently sold. Instead of repurchasing the shares at Loyal3, I plan to move the funds to my accounts at Wells Fargo.  You can read about my initial thoughts on the speculation here

My purchases increased my annual income by $129.21 this week.

Dividend Income Update March 2015

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Dividend Income

Another month has passed and its now time to update what I made in dividend income.  This month was a huge month in terms of income I received. If you wish to view any of my past monthly updates you can find them here.

In March, I took in $345.68, which is 779% higher than the income I took in from a year ago.  NEW RECORD!  My income from the last 12 months also increased from $1677.81 to $1984.17.  One of my goals is to have this number never to decrease in value(always growing).  

The biggest news this month was the 64% increase in the dividend of Centamin.   With this news my income will increase by of over $200 a year.

Key:

  • Dividend Income
  • Account Value
  • 6 Month Moving Average

Monthly Capital Contribution

The total value of my Dividend Portfolio decreased by almost $2,000 this month and I had $4500 of new capital contributions.  The current value is at $79063.  Below you can view the total contributions made to my Dividend Portfolio since inception along with the 12 month total.  Currently my 12 month capital contribution total is coming in at $44445 which is up almost $1500 over last month. Over time I would like to see the red moving average continue to increase over time.

I finished the refinancing of my home which freed up some extra capital this month.  I was able to lock in a 15 year at 3.25%, cutting almost 2 years off my mortgage and the refi only cost me around $500.  Hell Yes!

Portfolio Weighting

dividends

Basic Materials dropped a couple percentage points this month due to some profit taking on a couple positions but my energy weighting has greatly increased.  I continue to add to the quality positions suchs as XOM, BP, RDS'b, and CVX.  I am not really too concerned at certain sectors being over weigh at this time.  I am in the accumulation mode and right now I continue to focus on what Mr. Market is providing as cheap.

Next Month

Looking forward to April I anticipate some large contributions this month due to an overly large tax refund.  I hope to put to work $5000 - $8000.  My dividend income though will only come in at around $180 this month.  I am really looking forward to May when I should receive almost $500.

I continue to like XOM, CVX IBM, BNS, RY, TD, HP, NOV, EMR, PM, BAX, CAT, SII.to, KO, PG, JNJ, TROW

You can find my total dividends received each month located here.

Thanks for reading.

KO - Looking to Add to my Position

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Trade Ideas

Coca-Cola has long been a Dividend Investors main go to company.  I am personally using the support zone around the 40 level to add to my position. As the chart shows this is a major support level and unless broken one should continue to add to your long term holdings.

Heinz and Kraft to Merge

Written by MrStockFox. Posted in Dividends

Pretty significant deal, here are the details:

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/9-5b-kraft-heinz-buffett-120526263.html

Warren Buffett said Wednesday that Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A) will have $9.5 billion worth of common stock in the newly merged H.J. Heinz-Kraft Foods (NASDAQ: KRFT) company.

The combination of the food giants-announced just hours before Buffett's " Squawk Box " interview-was in the works for about four weeks, the billionaire investor said: "It moved along quite promptly."

He said he plans to stay invested in The Kraft Heinz Co. "forever," and feels the brands of Kraft and Heinz as enduring. The CEO of Heinz, Bernardo Hees, will run the new company.

Under the terms of the deal, Heinz will return to the public market with a 51 percent ownership of the new company. Current holders of Kraft stock will own 49 percent.

Kraft shareholders will receive stock in the combined company, and a special cash dividend of $16.50 per share, financed by a $10 billion investment from Brazilian private-equity firm 3G Capital and Buffet's Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK.A).
