Some how I missed this one, but about a month ago Casey's General Stores, Inc announced a quarterly dividend increase to $0.20 per common unit, or $.80 per unit on an annualized basis. The quarterly distribution will be paid on, August 15th, 2014. This distribution, which represents a 11 percent increase over the $0.18 per unit.

My portfolio consists of 3 shares of CASY, which increases my annual dividends to $2.40. The yield based on Friday's closing price is 1.1% and my yield-on-cost is is 1.2%.

Today I received exciting news that a long time position of mine announced that they will start paying a bi-annual dividend US$ 0.0087 per share.  Since I own 20,500 shares I will now be receiving $356.70 annually.  I have updated my Dividend Income Portfolio with the position and new income.  I do realize that this position greatly skews the Equity Weighting as well as the Dividend Weighting of this portfolio but rest assured that its within a justifiable weighting of my overall stock portfolio.  

Goals - With this position it has also increased the overall value of the portfolio so that I hit one of my 2014 Goals.  Because of this I have increased my goal to be $60,000 by the end of 2014.  This is the 2nd time I have increased this goal this year.

To add some variety to the website, I am going to start providing images from some of the amazing trips I have experienced over the years.  The following photograph was taken in front of my home when Venus crossed in front of the Sun, in 2012.

I Bought:

Dividend Income Portfolio (Total increase in income = $4.90)

$100 of McDonald's (MCD) - This will add $3.60 to my annual dividend income.

$25 of Microsoft (MSFT) - This will add $1.30 to my annual dividend income.

Commodities

$700 of BlackPearl (BLKPF)

I Sold:

No Equity sells this week.... 

Side Note:

My intent is to hold companies for many months and even for many years.  But with that said, if I see something in the charts or receive a large gain after owning the stock for a short period of time, I will sell my position and take profits.

Also, because the general market is up 30%+ over the last year I continue to be cautious when adding to my dividend portfolio and reducing some positions on rally's.  Many of the companies I am interested in buying are at all time highs.  I generally want to see a several week to several month decline before considering adding to a position.  Overall I continue to be overweight in my Commodities Portfolio and use most of my available funds to purchase in this sector.  In all accounts except my 401k I get FREE Trades.  This is why I can purchase only a couple shares at a time without exposing myself to a high commission percentage.
