Dividend Noob’s May Dividend Payout

The month of May was pretty sparse on stock purchases. While the stock market is pretty turbulent, with a lot of investors holding their money in cash, I made the decision to purchase a few stocks. You can check out my portfolio to see my latest holdings. I did sell off HCP for reasons that you can read here. Dividend payouts were good although it didn’t quite reach the payouts that I received last month.

  • CLDT–  32 shares @ $0.11 = $3.52

Not a bad little haul over the course of a month. Passive income is a great thing and with the power of dividends, I can get paid to do nothing. I have about $7k in cash sitting in my account, just waiting on future purchases. Anything I can do to raise the dividend payouts is what I’m after. While the overall market is shaky, I’m sure there are some great growth companies out there that I just need to stumble across. I hope everybody had a good month as well!

Dividend Noob’s April Dividend Payout

April has come and passed as fast as anyone could imagine. Dividend Payout is one of the most important criteria for Dividend investors. If a company doesn’t pay, you don’t get paid.There is an influx of dividend payout this month and I welcome them all with open arms!  Not bad for a Beginner Dividend Portfolio.

Being a Dividend Beginner, I’m even more excited that the stocks listed in the April Dividend Payout all have a positive return for myself. I managed to buy them all when the market took a hit in January.

 

Not too bad for Beginner Dividend Portfolio at all!
