Monthly Report: November 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 November 30, 2017:

Taxable Dividend Income (Total: $98.02)
  • Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. (APD) - $4.81
  • AT&T Inc. (T) - $9.86
  • The Clorox Company (CLX) - $8.56
  • Colgate-Palmolive Company (CL) - $13.35
  • General Mills, Inc. (GIS) - $14.74
  • HCP, Inc. (HCP) - $12.95
  • Hormel Foods Corporation (HRL) - $1.70
  • Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) - $4.97 (Increased 0.40% YOY)
  • The Procter & Gamble Company (PG) - $10.50 (Decreased 0.47% YOY)
  • Realty Income Corporation (O) - $6.13 (Increased 6.24% YOY)
  • Time Warner Inc. (TWX) - $4.48 (Decreased 2.40% YOY)
  • Verizon Communications Inc. (VZ) - $5.97
    • Total taxable dividend income of $98.02 increased 348.81% YOY.
New positions I added fresh capital to this year are APD, GIS, HCP, HRL, T, and VZ.  An existing position I added fresh capital to this year is CL.  All other dividend increases are from dividends reinvested and dividend raises from the companies.  The reason for the decrease YOY for PG and TWX is due to the liquidation of my partial shares when I consolidated my brokerage accounts.  I'm very happy with the total year over year dividend increase.

Non-Taxable Dividend Income (Total: $97.45)
  • Air Products and Chemicals, Inc. (APD) - $7.70
  • The Clorox Company (CLX) - $7.70 (Increased 6.94% YOY)
  • Colgate-Palmolive Company (CL) - $6.88
  • General Mills, Inc. (GIS) - $8.97
  • HCP, Inc. (HCP) - $13.27

  • Omega Healthcare Investors, Inc. (OHI) - $24.34
  • Welltower Inc. (HCN) - $15.15
    • Total non-taxable dividend income of $97.45 decreased 11.44% YOY.
New positions I added fresh capital to this year are APD, HCN, HCP, and OHI.  All other dividend increases are from dividends reinvested and dividend raises from the companies.  The reason for the decrease in my non-taxable dividend income is because I exchanged my entire position in VBLTX for VGHCX.

Market Values (Total: $499,719.38)
  • Brokerage Accounts - $149,530.58 (Increased 3.48% from prior month)
  • Roth IRA - $89,910.21 (Increased 2.70% from prior month)
  • 401(k) - $260,278.59 (Increased 3.25% from prior month)
    • Total market value increased 3.22% 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
  • 36.03%
Savings rate was pretty good for this month since it's above my 25% savings rate target.
