May 2020 Dividend Update!

In May the stock market saw a tremendous bounce back and rally, one seemingly for the ages. Many who decided to stay on the sidelines and not invest when the markets were down 30 plus percent are probably kicking themselves. I am certainly not saying that we can’t have another 30 percent correction in the coming months, I just don’t understand why you wouldn’t begin buying on any 30 percent correction. So if we have another correction, it will simply be another opportunity to stack shares at great prices. That being said let’s take a look at the dividends I was paid in the month of May 2020!

In May I was paid $129.33 in my 3 accounts combined. The breakdown is below:

  1. M1 Finance Main Account: $107.61
  2. M1 Finance Roth IRA: $9.34
  3. Fidelity Traditional IRA: $12.28

April 2020 Dividend Update

April was a wild ride as the markets came storming back following unprecedented stimulus into the markets and the economy by both the Federal Reserve and the Federal Government. I saw a bit of a decline in dividends paid from the past couple of months, but still earned triple digits dividends which is fabulous. I also opened a new Roth IRA for my wife as I have already essentially maxed my Roth IRA out for the 2020 calendar year.

In April I was paid $106.53 in my 3 accounts combined. The breakdown is below:

  1. M1 Finance Main Account: $85.37
  2. M1 Finance Roth IRA: $17.25
  3. Fidelity Traditional IRA: $3.91
