Monthly update for my passive income stream! YOY this month gave a 12% + in my portfolio earnings. Read and enjoy!
Now how about those dividends that flushed in without a single drop of sweat this month?
USD Stocks paying dividends this month
Just because I like visually presented development better than just raw number crunching tables, this month’s performance of my dividend portfolio is shared in even more graphs than before. Presented in neat graphics (made available by Google Spreadsheets):
In total, 104,28 USD were transferred to my account. A milestone since this is one of 8 “ordinary” months in a year to exceed the magical 100.
---bar graph requires some serious maintenance---
No Euro stocks in my portfolio paid out more than the 50cents I got from Sacyr SA. Not worth a big party.
Comparison against previous years
In hard USD figures the dividend payments till date result in the following spiked chart: Clearly, a year is build up from 4 ecstatic dividend distributions. Usually these are scheduled around the same months allowing for a nice warming up and cooling down period towards and after. This also affects my spending behaviour in new stock purchases. Money on the move.
Last month of August was an all time high. Mainly down to my desire to diversify the portfolio further,
To see what percentage of growth (negative or positive) this month’s figures result into is visualized in the following graph. Here the monthly distributions are compared per year. What we see here is that the August figure is keeping the growth in the higher regions. This month of August +124% when compared to last year’s!
Dividends are scheduled by their respective distributors in a (preferably) very structured manner. This characteristic makes the harvest neatly comparable. Here we have a truly comparable format for showing the monthly payments over the years.
And, in a slightly different format:
In terms of periodically development looking at the cumulative figure:
Looking at cumulative YOY % changes: currently, this month brought me 12,85% ahead of last year.
Now, this is what we were actually after: a yearly comparison on absolute current standings. How far are we as opposed to last years averages? You’ll find it here! All in all, the yearly average this month (total dividends paid / 12) is depicted below:
With the new purchases of lately, the portfolio now consists of another few monthly paying shares. Following figure gives an idea of the amounts of shares paying out each month. This month of August 14 companies paid out.

The “Future” figure I’m currently working towards is a steady additional 200USD (on average) per month for this year. To see whether I’m actually getting somewhere with this figure (that is for now grasped out of thin air) is clearly visualized in the below figure: Up till this month we’re not really doing that bad!
This is probably recognized as Any Other Business (usually the closing agenda item for meetings). In this case: it’ll represent Adsense Or Beyond meaning: anything else income wise (other than my daytime-job income). Forget the name-tag, it just means an additional few euros in the bank.
Another milestone for this month, one of my youtube channels noted an all time cumulative of 200k + views last month! The other channel, that is currently monetized best (probably due to a steady stream of uploaded videos in the same field of expertise) just passed the (all time cumulative) 15k views so a lot to gain there! Still, I consider it to be free money (earned through taping hobbies). Thanks Youtube and Adsense!
