I can’t believe we are already done with July, it seems time is just flying by. Things are running very smoothly with the portfolio, I have started to downsize my portfolio as it was a bit out of control with too many small positions and happy to report it is done.
Happy to report that I was able to inject more capital to my Dividend Growth Engine, a total of $4,304.90 that is currently being deployed. It is still 4x more than I was able to put last year and now that I have cleared off all credit card debt, this amount should start increasing also.
Because of the shift of my portfolio, July was a small dividend month in terms of payouts, most of the dividends are getting paid out on the 2nd and 3rd month of the quarter. Total income was $9.70 compared to $10.09 last July. Companies/ETFs that paid out dividends are:
- V (added 50 shares @ $94.00)
- TGT (added 10 shares @ $50.36)
- SPHD (added 100 shares @ $39.75)
- COST (added 10 shares @ $151.12)
- T (added 75 shares at $36.63)
- VZ (added 75 shares at $43.76)
July finished with a balance of $91,801.51, a 13.24% change from June of $81,067.81.
I’m extremely happy with the portfolio performance thus far, balance is continuing to grow. Expected Monthly Portfolio Income is also growing sitting at $279.23 in passive income that is being re-invested every month and thus getting closer to reaching my goal of FI.
