#HYHRD – Using the TDM #Dividend & #Investment Tracking Software part 3

Hi,

3andme

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

NOTE: This post might be graphic-intensive, so might take a while to load on a mobile device.

I decided to start using the TDM software again. I downloaded it from http://www.thomasdividendmanager.com/index.php/download-tdm and I was good to go!

This is part 3 in the series, for part 2, please click this link. I strongly recommend you read all of the articles in the series. You can also search for ‘TDM’ and these articles will pop up.

You will recall in my previous posts about this software, that I input every transaction in our Fidelity accounts, but not in our Capital One accounts. The reason for that is because I’m basically lazy. You see, most of the Fidelity accounts were recently reset to hold mostly DTC discount eligible holdings, and since the rest of our holding were transferred to Capital One Investing and I had held them and had been adding to them for a while I decided to just take the aggregate holdings (share counts and costs) instead of recording each transaction. This resulted in the Fidelity accounts being almost immediately up to date as far as dividends earned but not yet received, but the Capital One Investing accounts would lag until the ex-dividend had passed before the TDM program would begin to automatically calculate the dividend amount(s) earned.

I also set the Fidelity accounts up to DRIP the dividends since there was a possibility I would be getting a discount. I love discounts! I love dividends! Discounted dividend stock sent me into a slight euphoria!

So, first I looked at the accounts;

tdm

This window pops up if you have more than one account and click the account name in the lower left corner. You can also set the location for the program data here.

For this post, I am going to look at the portfolio view, and we’ll take it from the top, so first on the list is Fidelity Roth-A and then we’ll continue down the list one by one.

Ready? Here we go…

 

Fidelity Roth-A

tdm

First, I updated the divs, then the market, then I clicked on the Paydate column to sort by Paydate so I get an idea of upcoming dividends expected. It’s not too exciting, and looks rather bare, but that’s by design. Remember, the Fidelity accounts now hold only DTC discount eligible holdings. Most of the rest of our holdings were moved to Capital One Investing.

You can see the columns from left to right give information on the Symbol, the Name of the holding, the % change for the last or current trading day, the current price, the price I paid (PPS), a chart for the past month (21 trading days), etc. The rest are pretty straightforward, but the last is obfuscated by a couple of icons. That last one is total NET (gain or loss) including distributions. The 2 icons allow you to export to excel spreadsheet, or print.

Now, down at the bottom are the totals and the expected dividend are totalled, showing I can expect $48.89 this month (July is not counted because it’s still June!). There’s a button with an asterisk besides the toal amount, and when I click it I get a popup window showing this month’s distributions along with what has already been received and what I have yet to receive;

tdm

There’s also links so I can look at projections for next month, or see what I got last month, etc.

Pretty cool, eh?

Now, on to the next account!

Fidelity Roth-P

tdm

Here we can see the same type of information as in the first account, except there are fewer shares so the distributions are lower.

Still, between these 2 accounts alone, there’s over $1,000 being DRIPped each year, and the amounts will just increase given a steady distribution rate.

Now, on to the next account!

ind-PandA

tdm

Again, the same information just different (lower) amounts. Now, while this account is held at Capital One Investing it is DRIPped, just like the Fidelity accounts. The exception here is that there is no DTC discount plan. Also, 7 holdings showing 0 shares but dividends still expected. That’s because I recently purged some losing positions and on the right you can see the extent of the loss(es). No big deal (to me!), as now the cash is in the account, ready for deployment! You can see cash balances for each account on the bottom bar where it says “Cash :” and shows the amount. So, this account will have 7 fewer items next month, but then again, I will be making an investment on Wednesday, July 5th so the distributions should grow. We’ll see…

Now, on to the next account!

IRA-P

tdm

Another account held at Fidelity. This is my IRA, which isn’t much because most of it was converted to my Roth IRA. Still, same rules apply for all accounts held at Fidelity; DTC discount eligible holdings, all DRIPped, and expected to grow. We’ll see…

Now, on to the next account!

PandAjoint

tdm

Another account held at Fidelity. This is our joint taxable account like ind-PandA which is held at Capital One Investing. Still, same rules apply for all accounts held at Fidelity; DTC discount eligible holdings, all DRIPped, and expected to grow. We’ll see…

Now, on to the next account!

Robinhood

tdm

This is my new Robinhood account, which I started with 2 weekly deposits of $25, but quickly changed that to weekly deposits of $94 so it is really small. There are dividends expected already, though! This account holds items that are ineligible for the AIP at Capital One investing (IVH, KIO, OXLC, & RA) and CLM & CRF (just because I can!). DRIP is not possible here, so all dividends will add to the cash balance. That’s fine with me because all trades are free, so there’s that…

Now, on to the next account!

Roth-A

tdm

Again, the same information, except a much larger account with many more holdings (too many to see on one screen!). This account is also held at Capital One Investing and it is NOT DRIPped. I will be making an investment on Wednesday, July 5th so the distributions should grow. We’ll see…

Now, on to the next account!

Roth-P

tdm

Again, the same information, except a little smaller account with many of the same holdings (too many to see on one screen!). This account is also held at Capital One Investing and it is also NOT DRIPped. I will be making an investment on Wednesday, July 5th so the distributions should grow. We’ll see…

I hope this helps. I also want to add that I am not paid or reimbursed in any way by the programmer. I just happen to love the program and want to share.

Dustin, the programmer, is constantly updating the software with great new features. The DRIP feature is new since I last used it. I love it!

Anyway, as you can see, the dividend info for my stocks and CEFS is pulled quite easily and automatically into the program.

More as I find the time to update…

PLEASE TAKE NOTE AND REMEMBER THIS!

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!
