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

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

The spreadsheet for each individual account is now found on my Google sheets.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ACSF, ARCC, BBK, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, CEFL, CMU, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FMN, FPF, GAIN, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IQI, JPC, JPI, JPS, LDP, LEO, MAIN, MAV, MFM, MHI, MORL, NAD, NEWT, NHF, NMZ, NRO, NRZ, NVG, NZF, OAKS, OIA, ORC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMO, PMX, PSEC, PSF, RFI, RNP, RQI, SAR, SCM, TICC, TLI, TPZ, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (75 total issues held; 12 common stocks, 3 ETNs, and 60 CEFs, of which 23 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ARCC, BDCL, NEWT, NRZ, SAR, & TICC pay quarterly, but SAR doesn’t have a discernible regular quarterly pattern.

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 $13,713.78/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;

  • May ex-dividend dates
    • 8 – CSQ $0.0825 DHF $0.0265
    • 9 – EVN $0.0583 HPF $0.14 HPI $0.14 HPS $0.1222 LEO $0.043 PHK $0.080699 PDT $0.0975 PMF $0.05967 PML $0.065 PMX $0.05575
    • 10 – CEFL $0.2547 IQI $0.0546 MORL $0.0925 OIA $0.0344
    • 11 – ARRPRB $0.1640625 BBK $0.0635 BDJ $0.0467 BFK $0.065 BKN $0.062 BTA $0.0545 GOF $0.1821 JPC $0.064 JPI $0.1505 JPS $0.062 NAD $0.064 NMZ $0.0675 NRO $0.04 NVG $0.0725 NZF $0.074 OAKS $0.05
    • 12 – DHY $0.022 GUT $0.05
    • 15 – HYB $0.06 MAV $0.05 MHI $0.05 PHT $0.065
    • 16 – CMU $0.0225 CXE $0.025 EAD $0.0593 LDP $0.156 MFM $0.033 PSF $0.172 RFI $0.08 RNP $0.124 RQI $0.08 UTF $0.134
    • 17 – GAIN $0.064 MAIN $0.185 NHF $0.20
    • 18 – BGH $0.1534
    • 19 – DFP $0.16 FFC $0.128 FLC $0.133 HIX $0.0525 PFD $0.088 PFO $0.073 TLI $0.0725

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 yet);

  • May dividend dates
    • 10 – ORC $118.80
    • 15 – CSQ $8.44 FHY $6.72 FIF $0.87 FPF $15.10
    • 18 – EVN $ PSEC $33.33

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 or more screenshots around the beginning/end of the month), and when there are no dividends expected next week, we just look at dividends received;


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 (or did) 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, 2016; 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. This information is shown on the Google sheets on the Dividends tab. The Capital One (Sharebuilder) account is not being DRIPped, except for holdings down more than 10% (until they recover, anyway).

Part of the cash in our accounts will be withdrawn each month on an ‘as needed’ basis. I will retain some of the cash in each account for further investing.

Again, to see our current holdings;

Just click here (will open in a new window).


I’m not telling anyone to buy anything or giving anyone any advice, because that’s illegal. You see, I have no letters after my name, like RIA, CFA, etc. I SIMPLY DO NOT GIVE ADVICE. I only tell (and show!) what I do. You, like me, are all alone in this.

And remember, always do your own due diligence!
