Over the last few wchristmas holiday daily dividends investors income portfolio purchaseseeks I’ve done a bit of holiday shopping  for the Daily Dividend Investor portfolio. While I wouldn’t say that I scored any real bargains, I added a few new positions to the portfolio that should really help increase my income stream in 2012 and beyond.

As I add positions to the DDI portfolio I’m not afraid to put some money at risk, buying what may be a smaller, unproven or just less stable company in return for higher yield and the possibility of capital gains down the road.

I do like to try and keep things balanced – so for every riskier stock purchased I try to add what I often refer to as a “Steady Eddie” – those less interesting companies that just pay a consistent, albeit smaller, dividend quarter after quarter, year after year.

A quick overview of my recent purchases is shown below:

Monthly Income Update: November 2011thanksgiving november 2011 monthly update daily dividend investor blog passive cashflow income stream retire rich young healthy

The DDI Portfolio does it again!

41 companies spread over a multitude of sectors including Oil Production, Real Estate, Consumer Staples, Pharmaceuticals and Telecom produced a total income for the DDI portfolio of $509.24 in Noevember.

With the exception of the passive income stream from the incoming dividends, the Daily Dividend Investor portfolio was fairly quiet in November – recording only one new purchase. Near the beginning of November I added 10 shares of Microsoft (ticker: MSFT) to the portfolio using the available cash on hand.

November News

November is the second month of the quarter which means I’ll be comparing it’s results to May and August looking back.

The good news for November is that once again the DDI portfolio exceeded the $500 mark in passive dividend income, marking the second straight quarter for month #2 to make it’s quota.

However, November was not strong enough to add on to the fantastic gains we had back in August when the DDI portfolio topped out at $527.18.

Cal Maine Foods (ticker: CALM) has a floating dividend policy that is tied to the company’s quarterly results, as such this quarter was down slightly from the previous quarter.

Also, income from Sabine Royalty Trust (ticker: SBR) was lower this month due to the recent pull-back in oil prices at the beginning of Fall.

With signs of the economy strengthening, I expect both of these holdings to perform better in the months ahead.
