Monthly Report: September 2017

I post an update every month on the taxable dividend income I receive in my brokerage accounts, the non-taxable dividends I receive from my Roth IRA accounts, the market value of my taxable brokerage accounts, the market value of my Roth IRA accounts, the market value of my 401(k) account, and my savings rate.

Below is the monthly report as of September 30, 2017:

Taxable Dividend Income (Total: $713.88)
  • 3M Company (MMM) - $5.94
  • Bank of America Corporation (BAC) - $15.58 (Increased 61.45% YOY)

  • W.W. Grainger, Inc. (GWW) - $19.25
    • Total taxable dividend income of $713.88 increased 21.74% YOY.
New positions I added fresh capital to this year are D, GWW, K, and MMM.  Existing positions I added fresh capital to this year are GWW, K, TGT, XOM.  TIME had a YOY decrease due to a huge dividend cut; WMT had a YOY decrease due to the partial shares being liquidated when I consolidated brokerage accounts.  Once TIME is trading at a gain, I plan on exiting out of the position.  All other dividend increases are from dividends reinvested and dividend raises from the companies.  I'm very happy with the total year over year dividend increase.

Market Values (Total: $466,471.72)
  • Brokerage Accounts - $132,090.68 (Increased 3.81% from prior month)
  • Roth IRA - $88,305.39 (Increased 0.96% from prior month)
  • 401(k) - $246,075.65 (Increased 3.03% from prior month)
    • Total market value increased 2.85% from prior month.
I'm not too concerned with the market value of my taxable brokerage accounts since the investment strategy with that is solely to generate a growing stream of dividend income.  As long as the dividends keep coming and are increasing, I'm not too worried.  Nevertheless, it's still interesting to see how it is performing.

Savings Rate
  • 63.13%
Savings rate was excellent for this month!  This is the highest so far year to date.  50% or more in savings rate is definitely a big achievement for me.

  3. That's a healthy dividend income report for the month. A lot of solid names paying you with many in common in my own portfolio. Great savings rate too. That's a pretty high mark to achieve. Keep up the good work.
