Portfolio Update - January 2020

Portfolio Update - January 2020

Today I am sharing my portfolio at the end of January 2020. This blog was written two weeks ago. I was very busy in the last few days so at the current situation of the market the prices of the stocks has a big difference. I will update my current portfolio as soon as possible. As of January I was holding 33 stocks. This month I have sold all of my positions in L Brands (LB). I sold them at $23.4 at the end of January which I bought at $17.4 in November 2019. I got 35% profit in just 2 months of holding. The chart below shows my current portfolio and sector distribution of the portfolio.

The pie chart below shows diversity. The chart indicates a well-diversified portfolio with Apple (AAPL) is my highest position. I bought them in December 2018 and since then it keep increasing. My other top holdings are JP Morgan (JPM) 5.9%, Home Depot (HD) 5.6%, Abbvie (ABBV) 5%, and J&J (JNJ) 4.8%. 

The sector distribution of my portfolio is shown in the following pie chart. The sectors are based on Yahoo finance. My highest position is in the consumer sector with 19.9% (combined). My next large sectors are the technology, financial, and health sectors with 16% each.

I always update my trades in the tipranks website. The figure below compares my portfolio performance against the S&P 500. Most of the cases my portfolio beats the market.

My performance as a portfolio manager is also good. I am ranked 725 out of 23,372 investors which is in the top 3%. My portfolio has gained 69% since I started to invest in the market in 2017 and my sharp ratio is 3.04 while the average is only 0.99. The sharpe ratio is "A measure of your returns and associated risk you take on compared to returns of risk-free assets".

My 12 month returns (TTM) is 30.84% while the YTD return is 7.97%. At the time of writing of the blog the market tumbled almost 10%. So this chart does not count the last 2 days drop.

The meter below shows my projected income in terms of dividends. On 31st January 2020, my projected income through were $1214.38. I have accomplished my first target of earning $100 monthly through dividends. My dividend income increased 3.4% compared to the last month. I have added some oil stocks in this month such as British Petroleum (BP), Chevron (CVX), and Exxon Mobil (XOM). All the oil stocks are down big and I am bullish about the future outlook of this sector. On the other hand I have sold my positions in Gaps (GPS) and L Brands (LB). I have got some nice profit from these two stocks in just 2 months of investment.

My current Yield on cost is 3.78% while my current portfolio yield is 2.99%. Because I am investing in dividend growth stocks so my YOC will continue to grow with time while the current yield depends with the market volatility. The yield will go up when the market is down and the vice versa.

The following figure shows the comparison of my current yield and the YOC with time. My YOC is higher than the current yield because of the bullish market. For longer term, if I keep investing in dividend growth stocks, my YOC will keep growing with time.

The following chart shows my growth in projected annual income with time. It is slowly but steadily increasing and this month it reached to my first goal of earning $100 per month.

The table below summarizes the dividends that I received in January 2020. This month I have received $62.34. My highest paying dividend paying for this part of the quarter is from Jp Morgan Chase ($16.24).

The following table shows the detailed performances of my portfolio. The current prices are based on January 31st 2020. So the prices do not reflect the current price in the market. In the chart, I shared my current positions, annual income that I will receive in a year, total recieved dividends from the companies, and finally the gain or loss for each company. Please note that I have added the total dividends received to calculate the gain or loss for each company. The top 3 stocks in terms of gain are Mastercard (MA), Microsoft (MSFT), and Apple (AAPL).

Monthly dividend update - January 2020

January 2020 - Monthly Dividend Update

In January 2020, I have received a total of $62.34 in dividends. The table below shows the amount of dividends that I have received from the companies. This part of the quarter I receive the least amount of dividends. My highest paying company is JP Morgan (JPM) stock then followed by Medical Properties (MPW). This month my YOY is only 13%. I have added a few stocks of PPL corp and added GAP Inc (GPS) for a short time. Because of the addition, my dividends increased from the last quarter. 

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 the last month, I have received $62.34 while in the same month in 2019 I received $54.7 which is 13% YOY growth in income through dividends.

The next chart shows the total amount of dividends received on a quarterly basis. My previous two years had seen an increase in dividends every quarter. This year I am also expecting a similar increase in dividends. 

On a yield basis, the current yield of my overall portfolio is 2.99% while my yield on cost (YOC) is 3.78%. For a dividend investor like me, YOC is an actual yield than the current yield. The current yield varies with the market condition. The bull market moves the yield lower and vice versa for the bear market. However, the YOC only increases with time if you invest in dividend growth stocks. If you only invest in these types of companies your YOC will only increase with time. 

My projected annual income in January 2020 is $1214.38. This month my dividend income increased by $40 in total. This is the first time my annual income crossed $1200 limit which was my first goal to earn $100 monthly from dividend income. That's a real passive income. I will keep investing every month and just imagine how much my monthly income will grow as time passes by.

The chart below shows the average dividend income received monthly and the average amount of dividends received monthly. I am slowly increasing my passive income and if I continue to invest in the dividend-paying stocks it will only grow. At the time of retirement, I don't need to rely only on my social security income.

The chart and table below summarize my dividend distribution in the portfolio. The most percentages of dividends I am receiving are from ABBV and T. I also invested in BP this month so my 3rd highest paying dividend stock is BP. I am planning to add more BP this month. I am also worried about the Kraft & Heinz (KHC) stock. They lowered their dividends last year and some analysts are saying that they will again lower the dividends. If they again decrease then my income will be lower. Its dividend safety score is only 29 so there is a high chance that they will cut their dividend again. So I am planning to make my position to less than half and will buy BP with that money. 

The following table shows the dividends that I received from my positions in each month. In January 20 I have received dividends from JPM, MPW, IRM, and PPL mostly. 

The next table shows the total dividends received in 2020 from my positions. So far this month I have received $62.34. This chart will help me to keep a record of my yearly income.

The next table shows my dividend growth performance in 2020. Out of my 33 stocks, 10 of them already increased their dividends. Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMY) and Chevron (CVX) increased their dividends 9.8 and 8.4% respectively compared to the last years 4 and 6% increase. ABBV, Mastercard (MA), and Comcast (CMCSA) also increase their dividends 10.3%, 21.2%, and 9.5% respectively.
