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

Here is all of the payouts over the course of April by each holding:

I have been building out my portfolio for nine months now, which I realize is not a very long time at all. That being said I have learned so much in these nine months, and realize this dividend growth investing game is a very long term game that really pays off in the end not the beginning. Even knowing that I believe in setting incremental goals and celebrating when those smaller goals are met on top of celebrating the bigger goals. I set the goal of reaching $100 per month in projected dividends by the end of 2019 and reached that, just had seen a $100 payout in a month yet, until now!

In December I was paid $106.85 in my 3 accounts combined. The breakdown is below:

  1. M1 Finance Main Account: $74.31
  2. M1 Finance Roth IRA: $10.84
  3. FIdenity Traditional IRA: $21.70
