This is the regular posting of the review of “Expected dividends and current holdings” of the #HYHRD portfolio.
The spreadsheet for each individual account, along with the monthly balances and yearly dividends are now found in the tradelogs workbook. However, only the tradelogs page with all the aggregate information is posted. The individual account pages, etc., are not posted (to save time and space).
I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ARR-B, BBK, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, CMU, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, EVN, FFC, FHY, FLC, FMN, FPF, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, IQI, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAV, MFM, MHI, NAD, NMZ, NRO, NVG, NZF, OIA, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMO, PMX, PSF, RA, RFI, RNP, RQI, UTF. Quite a list, eh? (59 total issues held; 0 common stocks, 1 Preferred issue, and 58 CEFs, of which 23 are tax-free muni CEFs.)
This post examines recent & upcoming dividends and current holdings.
For all of our total shares (only shown on the Google sheets under the Real Results tab on my blog), the Expected Dividends from the currently held position(s) across the HYHRD portfolio are $15,068.59/year. This figure is taken from the Holdings tab. The dollar amount(s) invested in position(s) are shown on each account’s page. The YIELD is also shown on those pages. This does NOT consider capital gain/loss, nor does it consider accumulated dividends. Do your homework and do your own due diligence! YMMV!
These are declared ex-dividend dates with amount per share for the next couple of weeks;
- January ex-dividend calendar
- 3rd – FHY $0.09 FPF $0.1625 (already projected)
- 11th – LEO $0.043
- 12th – EAD $0.068 GUT $0.05 KIO $0.125 NRO $0.04
These are the expected dividends for the next couple of weeks (no amount means ex-dividend date is in the future or no dividend was earned);
- January dividend calendar
- 3rd – BGH $43.34 EAD $101.04 FMN $0.61 PHK $57.42 PMF $0.70 PML $0.27 PMM $0.34 PMO $0.64 PMX $0.27
- 5th – CSQ $14.04
Presented another way, here is the sheet I use to record the dividends subject to change and projected out through next week (it might be 2 screenshots around the beginning/end of the month);
If you look at my google sheets, there’s a tab for dividends. When you click that and scroll down, you’ll see something like this;
That will be updated on my sheets, but the picture above is just to give you an idea of what it might look like.
Mr. Market may have different ideas than you or I, so it’s always a good idea to at least have a look each day. I don’t really like buying when the market is going down, but I don’t mind buying (or selling) so much when the market is going up.
As of September 27th; FFC, FLC, GOF, GUT, MAV, MHI, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, & PMX will be DRIPped in Fidelity accounts because they reinvest at a discount! I just love a bargain! Capital One (sharebuilder) doesn’t offer this.
Also as of September 24th, I have decided that no holding will be DRIPped in our Roth IRA accounts, except; FFC, FLC, GOF, GUT, MAV, MHI, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, & PMX (already being DRIPped!). Everything in our Fidelity joint brokerage account and my IRA will be DRIPped. This information is shown on the Google sheets on the Dividends tab. The Capital One (Sharebuilder) account is also being DRIPped. (And, preferred shares can NOT be DRIPped.)
UPDATE: 12/24/16 – I have suspended ALL DRIP until taxes are paid.
Part (or ALL) of the cash in our accounts will be withdrawn each month on an ‘as needed’ basis. I would like to retain about half of the settled cash in each account for further investing.
