#HYHRD: Dividends/Holdings 11/18 $CSQ $CXE $DFP $DHF $DHY $DIAX $EAD $ECC $EVN $FFC $FHY $FIF $FLC $FPF $GAIN



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, AGD, ARCC, ARR, AWP, BDCL, BDJ, BFK, BGH, BKN, BTA, BXMX, CEFL, CLM, CRF, CSQ, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, DIAX, EAD, ECC, EVN, FFC, FHY, FIF, FLC, FPF, GAIN, GLAD, GOF, GUT, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HYB, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, LEO, MAIN, MAV, MFM, MHI, MITT, MORL, NAD, NEWT, NHF, NRO, NRZ, NVG, NYMTN, NYMTO, NZF, OAKS, OIA, ORC, OXLC, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMM, PMX, PSEC, PSF, QQQX, RA, REML, RFI, RNP, RQI, SAR, SCM, SPXX, STK, TICC, TLI, TPZ, TWO, & UTF. Quite a list, eh? (90 total issues held; 16 common stocks, 4 ETNs, 2 preferred shares, and 68 CEFs, of which 17 are tax-free muni CEFs.) Most pay monthly! Only ARCC, BDCL, BXMX, DIAX, MITT, NEWT, NRZ, NYMTN, NYMTO, OXLC, QQQX, SAR, SPXX, STK, TICC, & TWO pay quarterly.

This post examines recent & upcoming dividends and current holdings.

(This is where I double-check ex-dividend dates & amounts as well as dividend pay dates & amounts for the next 2 weeks.)

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 $13,040.87/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;

  • November ex-dividend dates
    • 20 – BGH $0.1534 MAIN $0.19 ($0.275 special ex-dividend 12/18) TPZ $0.125 (already projected)
    • 21 – AGD $0.065 AWP $0.05 DFP $0.155 FFC $0.119 FLC $0.126 NHF $0.20 PFD $0.082 PFO $0.069
    • 22 – ACSF $0.097 HIX $0.049 (reduced to $0.046 in December) PMM $0.0318 TLI $0.06 (reduced to $0.053 in December)
    • 29 – ORC $0.14 PSEC $0.06 SCM $0.1133

These are the expected dividends for the next couple of weeks (no amount means ex-dividend date is in the future and/or no dividend was earned yet);

  • November dividend dates
    • 20 – CEFL $31.60 EVN $1.27 MORL $20.14
    • 21 – REML $10.78 STK $12.00
    • 22 – GUT $19.33 PSEC $27.94
    • 24 – DHY $12.98
    • 27 – ARR $1.93 DHF $14.50 RA $3.30
    • 29 – OAKS $11.46
    • 30 – AGD $ AWP $ BDJ $5.29 CLM $52.23 CRF $50.97 CXE $3.19 DFP $ ECC $5.31 FFC $ FLC $ GAIN $3.52 GLAD $4.20 GOF $24.68 HPF $17.19 HPI $17.11 HPS $17.34 HYB $1.62 IVH $3.04 KIO $ LDP $20.28 LEO $1.33 MAV $2.71 MFM $2.75 MHI $1.30 NHF $ NRO $13.29 OIA $1.33 PDT $4.47 PFD $ PFO $ PHT $42.42 PSF $18.64 RFI $10.06 RNP $9.98 RQI $9.66 TPZ $ UTF $11.25 interest $
  • December dividend dates
    • 1 – BFK $1.47 BGH $20.48 BKN $1.32 BTA $1.32 EAD $9.31 HIX $ JPC $11.49 JPI $17.50 JPS $10.09 NAD $1.28 NVG $1.38 NZF $1.40 PHK $208.76 PMF $1.10 PML $2.82 PMM $ PMX $2.63 TLI $

Presented differently, these are ex-dividend dates for the next 7 days and dividend dates and amount for the next 7 days or until EOM, whichever comes first. These screen shots are from the TDM Dividend and Investment Tracking Software program that I use. All of these dates are pulled into the program automatically. I don’t have to search different sites any more, and reconcile which of them may be right. This program does it all. All I do is input my buys and sells and my dividends are calculated automatically. In the rare case where the calculated dividend doesn’t match the actual dividend received, it is usually due to the broker miscalculating, and then it’s usually in my favor! I’m not going to complain to them that they’re giving me too much money!

Here’s the TDM ex-dividend list for the next 7 days;


Here’s the TDM projected dividends for the next 7 days;


Presented yet 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 when most dividends are received), and when there are no dividends expected next week, we just look at dividends received (with the amount of holdings I have now, it will be an extremely rare occasion when I do not have dividends expected, but it could happen, so…);



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. But, I buy every month; sometimes it’s every week, sometimes twice a month, sometimes once a month, and sometimes randomly. Every time I buy, I do so to increase my income (dividends received) and/or total return of the portfolio.

As of June 12th, 2017; CLM, CRF, ECC, FFC, FLC, GOF, GUT, MAV, MHI, OXLC, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PMF, PML, PMX, & SAR will be DRIPped in Fidelity accounts because they may reinvest at a 0-5% 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) Roth IRA accounts are *usually* not being DRIPped (those two are our “income” accounts!).

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. I plan on keeping enough free cash in the accounts at all times to last for 3 months of investing, adjusting amount(s) invested and/or withdrawn as necessary. This includes accumulated dividends only in both Roth IRAs (Roth-A & Roth-P) without DRIP, and cash added to the taxable joint brokerage account (ind-PandA) with DRIP. Cash added to the taxable joint brokerage account (PandAjoint) with DRIP will be invested in the holding with the lowest cost basis when funds are available, or at will. Cash added to the taxable brokerage account (Robinhood) will be invested indiscriminately, but will most likely coincide with dividend paying investment with the deposit on the 1st so as to include dividends paid at EOM (i.e.; CLM & CRF). The deposit on the 15th may also be invested in those securities, or it may be invested in other new or existing holdings (i.e.; NCLH, etc.).

Again, to see our current holdings;

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!
