Dividend Report March 2016

March didn't offer any good buy opportunities. Looks like when stocks were on sale earlier in the year, I didn't have enough cash to invest, and now that I have several months worth of dividends earnings, stocks are overbought.  So no transactions this month. COP came back up along with oil prices. I'll be looking to sell in the next few weeks.

My portfolio value has gone up nicely with the rest of the market. No smarts or luck here, just not selling when things tanked in Jan and Feb, but riding the wave down and up again.

March stats:

  • Dividend income: $ 436.10. No surprises.
  • Trailing 12 months: $ 4889.93.
  • Forward 12 months: $ 5622.72. Slightly higher than last month, due to dividend increases. Not growing fast, as I haven't put money back into the portfolio.
Expected in April: $ 176.66.
