#HYHRD: Ex-div & pay dates 9/24 $HPI $HPS $HTD $IVH $JPC $JPI $JPS $KIO $LDP $MAV $MFM $MHI

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ARI-A, ARR-B, BDJ, BGH, CLNY-C, CMRE-C, CMU, CSI, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, FFC, FHY, FLC, FPF, GOF, GUT, HHY, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HTD, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, MAV, MFM, MHI, NMZ, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PSF, RNP, RQI, RSO-C, STK, TOO-B. Quite a list, eh? (46 total issues held; 0 common stocks, 6 Preferreds, and 40 CEFs.)

These are the upcoming declared dividend pay dates and amount(s) expected from each stock (projected on the ex-dividend date, or after market close the prior trading day).

These amounts are a compilation from all of our accounts, so some is taxable, some is tax-deferred, but most is tax-free. If you check out my Expected dividend spreadsheets you can see how it all breaks down, or you could just read my posts and look at the screenshots (ooooh, pretty pictures!).

The new! graphs of monthly dividends since inception as found on my Dividends Received page on my blog follows;

#HYHRD: portfolio #review 9/24 $DHF $DHY $EAD $FFC $FHY $FLC $FPF $GOF $GUT $HHY $HIX $HPF

It’s time for the weekly review of positions in the HYHRD (High Yield High Return Dividend) portfolio.

The spreadsheet for each individual account are now found in the Google docs spreadsheet.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ARI-A, ARR-B, BDJ, BGH, CLNY-C, CMRE-C, CMU, CSI, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, FFC, FHY, FLC, FPF, GOF, GUT, HHY, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HTD, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, MAV, MFM, MHI, NMZ, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PSF, RNP, RQI, RSO-C, STK, TOO-B. Quite a list, eh? (46 total issues held; 0 common stocks, 6 Preferreds, and 40 CEFs.)

This post examines all positions in the accounts. The trade logs are no longer updated because; a) it was a duplication of effort (the brokerage does it automatically), b) it was exceedingly tedious, c) figures from the brokerage were subject to change, making totals only approximate, and d) maybe it doesn’t need to be updated so frequently. I will post performance screenshots from our brokerages when they are available.

I will no longer post screenshots from the Thomas Dividend Manager program (link below in the weekly update) for each account in our portfolio.

Not currently tracked or reported is my wife’s TSA, except for quarterly updates on the 2016 Balances sheet.

“Smithers, release the hounds!”

#HYHRD: Dividends/Holdings 9/24 $ARI-A $ARR-B $BDJ $BGH $CLNY-C $CMRE-C $CMU $CSI $CXE $DFP

This is the regular posting of the review of “Expected dividends and current holdings” of the #HYHRD portfolio.

The spreadsheet for each individual account, along with the monthly balances and yearly dividends are now found in the tradelogs workbook. However, only the tradelogs page with all the aggregate information is posted. The individual account pages, etc., are not posted (to save time and space).

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ARI-A, ARR-B, BDJ, BGH, CLNY-C, CMRE-C, CMU, CSI, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, FFC, FHY, FLC, FPF, GOF, GUT, HHY, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HTD, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, MAV, MFM, MHI, NMZ, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PSF, RNP, RQI, RSO-C, STK, TOO-B. Quite a list, eh? (46 total issues held; 0 common stocks, 6 Preferreds, and 40 CEFs.)

This post examines recent & upcoming dividends and current holdings.

#HYHRD: spreadsheets 9/24 $NMZ $PDT $PFD $PFO $PHK $PHT $PSF $RNP $RQI $RSO-C $STK $TOO-B

I have discontinued using the MS Excel spreadsheets except to record dividends, withdrawal amounts, and cash balances. I am now using Google spreadsheets for my holdings. They are as up-to-date as I can manage, but will lag by a day or so due to delays in the reporting from the brokerages. The prices should update close to real-time, however, with a possible slight delay (~20 minutes) from Google.

I used to post the screenshots of dividend pay dates, record dates, declaration dates, dividend amounts, ex-dividend dates, record dates, and tax status as well as option activity. All except tax status & option activity is on my google sheets.

I only post for my holdings, but they’re as accurate as I can make them. The symbols are; ARI-A, ARR-B, BDJ, BGH, CLNY-C, CMRE-C, CMU, CSI, CXE, DFP, DHF, DHY, EAD, FFC, FHY, FLC, FPF, GOF, GUT, HHY, HIX, HPF, HPI, HPS, HTD, IVH, JPC, JPI, JPS, KIO, LDP, MAV, MFM, MHI, NMZ, PDT, PFD, PFO, PHK, PHT, PSF, RNP, RQI, RSO-C, STK, TOO-B. Quite a list, eh? (46 total issues held; 0 common stocks, 6 Preferreds, and 40 CEFs.)

This series of blog posts is issued `weekly, but since the majority of our holdings pay dividends near the end and/or beginning of the month it may not always warrant a publishing blitz. There are usually 4 posts in the series when posted. The sharebuilder update and the monthly withdrawal update are both issued monthly. I think you should try to catch all 4, plus the sharebuilder update if you’re so inclined. Occasionally I’ll throw something else up for ridicule or admiration like my post about “Profiting from Preferreds”, so feel free to be entertained! I put another post up titled “Rolling on the #dividend train” and kept that updated until mid-September when the upward climb of prices slowed…

But, I did fairly well with that, and harvested over $3,500.00 in gains! (Stopped, now!) I may resume this tactic in the future if prices appreciate enough to warrant another “harvest” of gains.

Of course, if something major happens I might be tempted to throw something up about that. Or not. Like the recession, or whatever…

Like from now on, I think I’ll make weekly sharebuilder investments (On Tuesday) until I’ve used all 12 free trade credits, or `3 investments per week. But, I will not be investing equally. Investment amounts will be based on 1/72nd of the settled cash in the account so it should last ~six months. This amount will be pro-rated amongst the top CEFs based on their Total Return. It’s all shown on the equal weight spreadsheet.

Anyway, let’s continue with a look at the dates;

These series of blog posts are sometimes delayed, and used to be issued weekly. Since the majority of our holdings pay dividends near the end and/or beginning of the month it’s no longer warranted to issue so frequently.
