DDI Monthly Income Update: January 2014

DDI Monthly Income Update: January 2014

new year dividend update income passiveA Quick Portfolio Update for the New Year

Let’s start off the New Year with a quick monthly update on the DDI Portfolio to see where things are at.

This month there were a total of 29 income payouts within the DDI Portfolio – that’s right on track to average one paycheck every day of the month. Just a little over a year ago I was excited to see 15 payments a month, or one about every other day. It hasn’t taken long to improve upon that and move towards the next goal of multiple daily payments.

Overall, the DDI Portfolio brought in $1645.81 in passive income through dividends and royalty payments. You can see the complete list of income payments in the spreadsheet below. With this update, I’ve started to track not only the payment dates and amounts but the day of the week the payments are made – for January 2014, Wednesday and Friday were the definite winners.

Top Income Producers for January 2014January 2014 DDI Income Report

Each month I also like to highlight the 3 or 4 top income producers for the DDI Portfolio. This month there were 4 top producers with over $100 each in passive income and together, these 4 producers generated just over $1000!

DDI Top Income Producers:

  • Sabine Royalty Trust                          $362.28
  • Healthcare Trust                                 $269.68
  • Digital Realty Trust                            $234.00
  • Realty Income                                      $145.73

Off to a Great Start

January is off to a great start for the DDI Portfolio. While I haven’t set my DDI Portfolio goals for the year yet, I do expect to continue growing the amount of passive income that the portfolio generates each month, moving towards $2000/month and beyond.

Look for my 2014 Goal setting post in the next few weeks. In the mean time, let me know about your Income Portfolio. How are you building your own passive income portfolio? I’d love to hear about your best picks or anything that’s worked well for you – I always enjoy getting your input and feedback.

DDI Monthly Income Update: November 2012 – How many Paychecks did you get?

DDI Monthly Income Update: November 2012 – How many Paychecks did you get?

money flys income stream daily dividend investor blog cash flowA Quick Portfolio Update

Itś been awhile since I´ve done a monthly income update on the DDI Portfolio, so here´s a quick recap of the numbers from November.

I recently sold a few  under-performing positions and have reallocated a small portion of the cash. I am currently sitting on just over $4000 in cash. With interest rates at .01% this basically makes this dead money with an effective yield less than 0%.

November 2012 Income Results

The total income for November was $623.77 showing that the DDI portfolio is now consistently paying out above my first income goal of $500/month. Onward to $1000/month!  The November payouts were spread across 41 separate ¨paychecks¨ or dividend payments.

Besides tracking the total number of monthly payouts, I thought it would be useful to start tracking the number of days during the month when I received a payment – for November this worked out to be 16 days, which means I basically got paid every other day for the entire month! Not bad….when was the last time your boss paid you that often??

The year to date (YTD) total income for the Daily Dividend Investor Portfolio is now at $6908.07 which puts it on track to top $7500.00 for the year.

Novemberś Bread Winners

The four top income produces for November include two Telecom companies, a Business Development Company and a Casino Operator. Wynn Resorts, the wynn resort daily dividend investor massive annual cashflow outcome paymentcasino operator, which normally pays a small 1% dividend, made the Bread Winners list this month thanks to itś annual special dividend of over $7/share paid at the end of each calendar year.

And the winners are:

  • Wynn Resorts                          $40.00
  • Solar Senior Capital               $35.25
  • AT&T                                          $30.80
  • Verizon                                      $25.75

Month Over Month Comparisions

Again, I haven’t done a monthly income update in a while, so I won’t give any month over month comparisons with previous or future quarters this month. I will return to these comparisons once we have a quarter of results posted on the blog – stay tuned. It’talk later ddi daily dividend updates blog post income report aprils always good to track the trends of the portfolio and I look forward to seeing these results as we move into 2013.

That’s it for the November round up. I hope you find these reports informative. Are you building your own passive income portfolio? Let us know what you’re up to by sharing your best picks or anything that’s worked well for you – I always enjoy getting your input and feedback.

Albany International – Today’s Dividend Increase For Wednesday, May 30th

Albany International – Today’s Dividend Increase For Wednesday, May 30th

Is it the calm before the “storm” of a mass of dividend increases in June? I don’t know, but today was a slow day with just Albany International announcing a dividend increase on it’s quarterly payout.

Albany International Corp. (ticker: AIN) operates as a textiles and materials processing company throughoutalbany international raises quarterly dividend the world with specialties in Machine Clothing design, manufacturing, and marketing of  paper machine clothing and process belts used in the manufacture not very exciting stock returns pay long run massive cash flowof paper and paperboard.

Albany raised it’s quarterly dividend by $.01 to $.14/share giving current investors about a 3% yield.

Sometimes it’s easy to overlook a stock like AIN because let’s face it, a 3% return just isn’t very exciting. But when you’re building a diversified portfolio, you shouldn’t overlook the less exciting holdings that pay a smaller dividend – often times it’s those “base” holdings that will outperform the market in a downturn while still paying the dividend quarter after quarter.

Dividend Increases For Tuesday, May 29th – Niche Income Opportunities

Welcome Back! I hope all of you in the US enjoyed your three-day weekend and the  quasi-official start of summer for those of us in the northern hemisphere.

The Niche and The Wide Moat

This morning we’re welcomed back with 6 dividend increases by a good variety of companies that operate in some niche markets. I tend to favor companies like this that specialize in a single product or service, because often times they have a “wide moat”, meaningwide moat few competitors dividend increases cashflow rises payout investors it is very difficult for competitors to enter their product space and compete effectively. The more important thing is that these companies are often extremely profitable and thus increase their dividend payouts to share holders regularly. Often times you’ll find that these niche players have large insider ownership often by the founding family who relies on the income stream the dividend payments provide, so the principals and majority shareholders may encourage the Board of Directors to keep the dividend increases coming as long as the business cashflow will support it.

You’ll find the complete list of dividend increases listed below, or you also click this link to get online spreadsheet with all the numbers for today’s dividend changes.

I’ve started to put together the  2012 year-to-date spreadsheet that will give you a big picture view of all the dividend increases for the year.

DDI Monthly Income Update: April 2012  / Back In The Saddle Again

Yeah, it’s been awhile.

As I’ve mentioned in several posts over the last few days, I got off to a rough start in the first quarter of 2012 back in saddle return daily dividend investing passive income stream retirement livingdue to some illnesses and other family issues. But the good news is that even while I was away tending to my family, the DDI portfolio just kept doing it’s thing. Not only did it continue to generate “daily” passive income, but the income continued to increase as well!

The best “surprise” of all (which really isn’t a surprise), is that while the DOW, Nasdaq and S&P were all barreling ahead, the DDI portfolio was right there along for the ride! After trading between $125-$130k for the later part of 2011, the DDI portfolio recently hit a high of just over $150k. While the portfolio has pulled back with the recent market declines, it remains comfortably in the mid $145k range.
