Since my return home there has not been much action within The Stoic’s portfolio. Little capital has been added and few stock purchases have been made. However, the portfolio has been doing a great job in regards to one of its main objectives: generating income. This post will look at the total sum produced year-to-date, as well as a monthly breakdown of which stocks contributed to the total.
Total dividends received as of August 31st 2012 is $1921.81. This is an increase of approximately $700.00 for all of 2011. The following are totals for each month:
May: 851.73 *
Below is the contribution from each company to the total:
TEF: 452.23 *
* As part of its shareholder remuneration TEF paid part of the dividend as cash and part as shares. I received 17.75 shares of TEF in addition to the cash dividend.
With about 15% of my portfolios value sitting in cash and the cancellation of the remainder of TEF’s dividend for this year; I may not hit the lofty dividend goal I set for myself earlier this year. Even if that is the case I will be doing much better than last years total and it’s interesting to watch the portfolio mature. I’ll provide another dividend update at the close of the year.
