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.

A Pair Of Dividend Increases – Pack n’ Ship

A Pair Of Dividend Increases – Pack n’ Ship

Before getting to today’s dividend increases, I thought I’d give you a brief update on the DDI Portfolio. It’s no secret thfedex delivers daily dividends income stream passive cash flowat the broader markets peaked about the 1st of May and with that, the DDI Portfolio had increased to just over $150k in total value. Painful as it is, I decided to check the value of the account yesterday. The good news was with yesterday’s small bounce, the portfolio had gained back $1200 for the day, but had come off of a low of about $140k after Monday’s declines.Dropping from $150k to $140k for the month of May, brings the short-term loss for my  portfolio to almost 7%. That’s an 84% drop on an annual basis  – ouch!

So what’s the point?

what point dividend capital gainFirst off – I think this shows that it’s usually a bad idea to take daily/weekly/monthly returns and extrapolate them into annual returns. Even during the crash of 2008, the average portfolio “only” dropped 50-60% – no where close to the 84% I quoted above.

Second – If you look back at the DDI portfolio earlier this year, it was valued in the $125-$130k range. Even with the drop in May, it’s clear that we’re still on a winning track.

Finally, I’ve said it a thousand times, but as an income portfolio, the DDI portfolio continues to generate $500-$600 per month in income, no matter what the underlying stocks do on a daily basis! That’s money that I’ll reinvest into more and more income producing stocks, that will generate more and more income…
