#HYHRD: Ex-div & pay dates 3/18 $HPS $HYB $IQI $IVH $JPC $JPI $JPS $KIO $LDP $LEO $MAV $MFM $MHI $MORL

Hi,

patrosenheim

I’m Pat Rosenheim, a.k.a. the PandA Trader.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ARR-B, BBK, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, CEFL, CMU, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FMN, FPF, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IQI, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAV, MFM, MHI, MORL, NAD, NHF, NMZ, NRO, NVG, NZF, OIA, ORC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMO, PMX, PSEC, PSF, RA, RFI, RNP, RQI, TICC, TLI, TPZ, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (70 total issues held; 3 common stocks, 1 Preferred issue, 3 ETNs, and 63 CEFs, of which 23 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly!

These are the upcoming declared dividend pay dates and amount(s) expected from each stock (usually projected on the ex-dividend date, or after market close the prior trading day).

These amounts are a compilation from all of our accounts, so some is taxable, some is tax-deferred, but most is tax-free. If you check out my Expected dividend spreadsheets you can see how it all breaks down, or you could just read my posts and look at the screenshots (ooooh, pretty pictures!).

The table and chart of monthly dividends since inception as found on my Dividends Received page on my blog follows;

#HYHRD: portfolio #review 3/18 $DHY $EAD $EVN $FFC $FHY $FIF $FLC $FMN $FPF $GOF $GUT $HIX $HPF $HPI

Hi,

patrosenheim

I’m Pat Rosenheim, a.k.a. the PandA Trader.

It’s time for the weekly review of positions in the HYHRD (High Yield High Return Dividend) portfolio.

The spreadsheets for each individual account are now found in the Google docs spreadsheet.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ARR-B, BBK, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, CEFL, CMU, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FMN, FPF, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IQI, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAV, MFM, MHI, MORL, NAD, NHF, NMZ, NRO, NVG, NZF, OIA, ORC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMO, PMX, PSEC, PSF, RA, RFI, RNP, RQI, TICC, TLI, TPZ, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (70 total issues held; 3 common stocks, 1 Preferred issue, 3 ETNs, and 63 CEFs, of which 23 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly!

This post examines all positions in the accounts. The trade logs are no longer updated because; a) it was a duplication of effort (the brokerage does it automatically), b) it was exceedingly tedious, c) figures from the brokerage were subject to change, making totals only approximate, and d) maybe it doesn’t need to be updated so frequently. I will post performance screenshots from our brokerages when they are available.

Not currently tracked or reported is my wife’s TSA, except for updates on the Balances chart.

Hi,

This is the regular posting of the review of “Expected dividends and current holdings” of the #HYHRD portfolio.

#HYHRD: spreadsheets 3/18 $PML $PMM $PMO $PMX $PSEC $PSF $RA $RFI $RNP $RQI $TICC $TLI $TPZ $UTF

Hi,

patrosenheim

I’m Pat Rosenheim, a.k.a. the PandA Trader.

I only use MS Excel spreadsheets now to record dividends, withdrawal amounts, and cash balances. I am now using Google spreadsheets for my holdings. They are as up-to-date as I can manage, but will lag by a day or so due to delays in the cost basis reporting from the brokerages. The share prices should update close to real-time, however, with a possible slight delay (~20 minutes) from Google.

On my Google spreadsheets, you can find portfolio holdings, dividend amounts, dates (dividend pay dates, record dates, declaration dates, dividend amounts, ex-dividend dates, etc.). I have moved the cash and withdrawal amounts to the Google spreadsheets. Only the dividends spreadsheet is still in excel, but I post screenshots on the Dividends Received page.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ARR-B, BBK, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, CEFL, CMU, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FMN, FPF, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IQI, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAV, MFM, MHI, MORL, NAD, NHF, NMZ, NRO, NVG, NZF, OIA, ORC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMO, PMX, PSEC, PSF, RA, RFI, RNP, RQI, TICC, TLI, TPZ, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (70 total issues held; 3 common stocks, 1 Preferred issue, 3 ETNs, and 63 CEFs, of which 23 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly!

This series of blog posts is issued `weekly, but since the majority of our holdings pay dividends near the end and/or beginning of the month it may not always warrant a publishing blitz. There are usually 4 posts in the series when posted. The sharebuilder update is issued weekly and the monthly withdrawal update is issued monthly. I think you should try to catch all 4, plus the sharebuilder update and/or the monthly withdrawal update if you’re so inclined. Occasionally I’ll throw something else up for ridicule or admiration like my post about “Profiting from Preferreds”, so feel free to be entertained! I put another post up titled “Rolling on the #dividend train” and kept that updated until mid-September of last year when the upward climb of prices slowed…

  • I did fairly well with that “Rolling on the #dividend train” thing, and harvested over $3,500.00 in gains! (Sure has stopped now, though!) I may resume this tactic in the future if prices appreciate enough to warrant another “harvest” of gains.
    • We’ve made $23.12 ST Capital Gains in our regular brokerage account, & $791.62 LT Capital Gains in our IRA accounts, for a total of $814.74 of harvested gains YTD.
  • We’ve made $16,798.15 from preferred shares since March 14, 2016. We continue to earn $49.22 each month from our shares of ARRPRB through at least the first month or 2 of 2018 when ARRPRB shares might get called (the ARRPRA shares might get called in June of 2017!).

Of course, if something major happens I might be tempted to throw something up about that. Or not. Like the recession, depression, World War III, or whatever…

From now on I will make weekly sharebuilder investments (Usually every Tuesday) using 3 of 12 monthly ‘free’ trade credits, with additional trades under the AIP plan costing $1 each. But, I will not be investing equally. This investment amount will be skewed among the holdings based on their performance. It’s all shown on the cash tab on my Google spreadsheet (soon to be shown on the account tab!). Or, maybe I’ll do something different. Who knows? (I am doing something different, at least in the Roth accounts that are still transferring from Fidelity).

I have partially moved our Roth accounts from Fidelity to Capital One Investing (ShareBuilder), initiating the first part of the transfer around March 1st. The second and final partial transfer was initiated today for both Roth IRA accounts. Since that first transfer is now effective, I will begin making weekly sharebuilder investments (Usually every Tuesday) using 4 of 12 monthly ‘free’ trade credits, with additional trades under the SIP plan costing $1 each. I will initially be investing equally and will be based on adding 3 ETNs to the account (BDCL, CEFL, MORL). For the remainder of this month, I will also be investing in ORC. Next month, I will just be making 3 investments each week in the 3 ETNs (BDCL, CEFL, MORL). Later, after a sufficient amount has been invested in these 3 ETNs, another tactic may come forward, such as investing in more new additions to the portfolio, or maybe the poorest performers in each account in an effort to buy at a discount. It will all be shown on the individual Roth account tabs on my Google spreadsheet. Or, maybe I’ll do something different. Who knows?

Anyway, let’s continue with a look at the dates;

Hey, things change…

Things did change. I decided to add TICC to Roth-A instead of ORC. Roth-P is unchanged. The screenshots below have NOT been updated. I didn’t own any TICC in Roth-A, so that’s why I decided to change it.
