I came to you guys almost 3 months ago with an overview of my dividend income and situation. Back then I was bringing in approximately $150 a year in dividends from Robinhood and with all dividends and interest included I was bring in a little over $20 a month. Today this is what we are looking at.
The above table tracks my dividends from multiple platforms (Robinhood, acorns, and stash) as well as interest I receive from Robinhood. As you can see there is a general trend upward and although there were some bad months (January) I receive upwards of $20 a month in dividends. Here is the table in graph form, the blue represents 2017 and the red represents 2018. As you can see March 2018 has been my best month to date with $31.68, or about a $1 a day.
Below is another table tracking my dividend stocks in Robinhood. As you can see I am now making approximately $200 a year in dividends not including stash dividends or Robinhood interest. This equates to approximately 2.5% return on my portfolio in dividends. I also have small positions in some very high yield dividend stock such as CEFL, CBL, and OHI. I am looking into increasing those positions moving forward and cost averaging down when I can, to increase actual percent yield which is calculated in the table below.
Overall, I am impressed with these results as I have been taking my foot off the gas in terms of investing in dividend stocks. I have been looking more into higher potential returns than higher dividend income recently and we will see how that pays off in the future. Currently my largest position is down big right now (~$750) as that comes up as I expect it too in 2018/2019 and I can funnel more money into my investing accounts I will keep you all updated on my stock portfolio and my dividends.
