Portfolio update on October 2019

Portfolio update on October 2019

Today I am updating and sharing my portfolio for the month of October 2019. All the prices in this article are based on November 1st, 2019. Currently, I am holding 30 stocks in my portfolio. I am looking to add new stocks in my portfolio to diversify my portfolio but I cannot find any stocks which are at a big discount. In October, I added MMM stocks in my portfolio. The market is up like crazy and I don't want to invest in this market. I am holding cash and have decided to wait for the market pullback. The chart below shows my current portfolio and sector distribution. 

The pie chart shows my portfolio diversity based on sectors from Morningstar. My highest position is in the consumer sector followed by the financial and healthcare sectors. 

The following chart shows my portfolio diversity and you can see that I have built a well-diversified portfolio with Apple (AAPL) my highest position followed by Home Depot (HD) and JP Morgan (JPM).

The meter below shows my projected annual income in terms of dividends. On October 31st my projected income through dividend was $1068.32. I have set my first target to $100 per month from dividends which is $1200 per year. Compared to last month my dividend increased from $1048 to $1068. The increased of $20 is due to the purchase of Exxon (XOM), 3M (MMM) stock and reinvestment of dividends. 

The current yield of my portfolio is 2.92% and the yield of cost is 3.6%. 

The figure below shows the comparison of my current yield and YOC with time. The curve shows that my YOC is higher than my current yield. The current yield depends on the dividend rises or drops and also on the bear or bull market. If the market is in bull mode then the yield will drop and in the bear market, it is vice versa. The yield on cost depends on the dividend rise and cut. So for longer-term YOC will gain and will be well above the current yield.

The following chart shows my growth in projected annual income with time. It is slowly but steadily increasing and reaching to achieve my first goal.

The mini table below summarizes the dividends that I received in the month of October 2019. My month was mainly dominated by dividends from JPM and Medical Prop. (MPW).

The following table shows the detailed performances of my portfolio. The current prices are based on October 31st, 2019, so the prices will vary compared to the current market. From the chart, you can see that my biggest gained stocks are Mastercard (MA), Microsoft (MSFT), Procter & Gamble (PG), and Visa (V). The only two stocks that I am losing are Albemarle (ALB) and Kraft & Heinz (KHC). However, I am expecting of a positive run of these two companies in the near future.

Dividend Received on October 2019

Dividends received in October 2019

In October 2019, I have received a total of $60.83 in dividends. The chart below shows the dividends that I received each month in 2019. This cycle I used to receive the least income compared to the other quarters. The majority amount of dividends I received in the last month was from JP Morgan (JPM) and Medical Properties (MPW). This month I have received dividends from my new addition PPL Corp (PPL) for the first time. 

The next table shows the total dividends received in 2019 from my portfolio. In total, I have received $753.48. 

The next table shows my dividend growth performance so far in 2019. The last column of the chart shows the change in dividends compared to the previous year. The box marked green indicates the percentage of dividends increased in the current year while the box with red means a decrease in dividends this year. In the last month, I got a dividend raise from Visa (V). They raised their dividends 20%. This year all the stocks in my portfolio raised their dividends except Kraft and Heinz (KHC). 

The chart and table below summarizes my dividend distribution in the portfolio. The most percentages of dividends I am receiving are from ABBV and At&t (T) with 10.1 and 8.6% respectively.

The following chart shows the dividends received monthly from my portfolio. The chart clearly indicates the growth of my monthly dividends with time.

The following chart compares my monthly dividends on a yearly basis. In October 2019, I have received $60.83 while in 2018 in the same month I received $42.62 which is 42.73% YOY growth.

The next chart shows the total amount of dividends received on a quarterly basis. This year my quarterly income remains the same but I am expecting an increase with this quarter because I sold some of my high yield BDC and REIT stocks in May and June and it took me some time to buy new stocks. the recent time I invested in MMM, PPL, and XOM, so I am expecting a good increase in my dividends this quarter.

So far my current yield is 2.98% and my yield on cost (YOC) is 3.59%. The increase in YOC is due to the dividend increase of some of my stocks. However, the current yield dropped because of the bullish market.

My projected annual dividends in October 2019 is $1068. My first goal is to earn $100 monthly which is $1200 a year. I am moving towards my goal gradually every month as you can see from the chart below. I am investing 8% of my salary monthly and also reinvesting all the dividends that I am receiving.
