#HYHRD: Dividends/Holdings 8/27 $ARI-A $ARR-B $BDJ $BGH $CLNY-C $CMRE-D $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-D, 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 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. There are usually 4 posts in this series, plus the sharebuilder updates are issued twice a month. 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 recent post about “Profiting from Preferreds”, so feel free to be entertained! I just put another post up titled “Rolling on the #dividend train” and will keep that updated through next week…

This post examines recent & upcoming dividends and current holdings.

#HYHRD: spreadsheets 8/27 $NMZ $PDT $PFD $PFO $PHK $PHT $PSF $RNP $RQI $RSO-C $STK $TOO-B

For the most part, I have discontinued using the MS Excel spreadsheets except to record purchases and sales, as well as dividends. 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.

Here I 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.

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-D, 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.

I did fairly well with that, and harvested over $3,500.00 in gains!

Of course, if something major happens I might be tempted to throw something up about that. Or not.

Like for next month, I’m thinking I’ll just make one investment day (First Tuesday of Every Month) and use all 12 free trade credits on my 12 holdings in one shot. But, I will not be investing equally. More on that later…

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

#HYHRD: Rolling on the #dividend train with $CSI $DHF $DHY $EAD $JPC $JPI $KIO $PHT

This is another followup to my recent posts; #HYHRD: Rolling on the #dividend train with $ARRPRB $EAD $DHY $IVH $HHY $PHT $HIX $LDP $BGH $DFP in which I outlined my plan to roll some dividends during the 8-day continuous parade of symbols going ex-dividend. We have ended that parade with ex-dividend dates for DFP, FFC, FLC, PFD, & PFO on Monday, the 22nd of August.

That very same day we started a 6-day continuous parade of dividends.

This is the seventh (and probably last) post in the series. Saturday I posted the 6th, #HYHRD: Rolling on the #dividend train…

And now, this week’s results (after the fold);

#HYHRD: What’s on the agenda? $DHY $CSI $GUT $DHF $HHY $HIX $ARRPRB

Taking a look at the Dividend Calendar on my blog, it’s clear to see we have some upcoming dividend paydays and the last of 8 consecutive ex-dividend days;

But, this doesn’t tell the whole story. See how the entry for Wednesday, August 31 seems cut short? Well, to see the whole story we need to switch to month view, so we click the tab for month;
