Good morning, afternoon and evening fellow readers,
May has come to a close and it was a $0.14 increase over April in dividend payments, the nice thing is that we are only 7 days into June and it’s already almost 50% of May’s total.
The markets had a bad month though with all the tariff talks, but that just meant that I got to buy some companies at a nice discount. Which I expect will be reflected as a nice dividend increase over the next 1-3 months.
I was paid by 41 companies and out of the 22 trading days, I was paid dividends 12 of those days.
This portfolio outperformed the S&P – This portfolio lost 4.81% while the S&P 500 lost 6.38%.
Next, we have the actual vs projected chart, the projected chart is strictly based off contributions of $14 Monday through Friday. And the actual includes market gains/losses + dividends paid (which gets reinvested across the entire pie, not just the company that paid it like a DRIP does. AKA “Dividend Re-Investment Program”.)
And finally, the data broken down to an hourly wage equivalent, almost to $0.01 a hour! It should happen in about 18-21 days.
So that’s the portfolio update for May, now for the Prosper and Adsense data.
Prosper has been running since April of 2018, but I haven’t actively been putting in funds until this year.
Stats year to date (interest paid only)
As of right now, Prosper has been the biggest stream, but since I’m not being as aggressive in that account at the moment, the dividend income should catch up.
Adsense is probably the most sporadic since it depends on website traffic, and I really don’t want to bombard you and future readers with multiple posts. Adsense became active in March of this year.
Stats year to date:
And that’s the summary for May
