My Latest Buy: AWP

This month I bought 280 shares of Alpine Global Premier Properties Fund (NYSE:AWP) at $5.70 per share, for a total of 350 shares. This isn’t a new addition to my portfolio, as I bought 70 shares last October. With an annual dividend yield of 10.53%, it was a good choice for making up for last …

Dividend Income Report for July 2016

The end of July means that two-thirds of the summer is already gone. Other than having our roof replaced and minor car problem, July was a fairly unremarkable month. July was certainly quite kind to the stock market, with the Dow rising approximately 2.5%. My total worth of my dividend investing portfolio did well in …

My Latest Buys: DHT, EDF

Time for another monthly stock buy report. For my first stock buy in July, I didn’t go for an ETF (my usual modus operandi) and instead bought shares of a single company: DHT Holdings Inc (NYSE:DHT). I bought 120 shares at $4.936 per share. With a quarterly divided of 25 cents per share, it has …

Dividend Income Report for June 2016

June is now over, so a third of summer is effectively gone and the first half of 2016 is now over. The past month was fairly quiet, so there’s not much to really say. But there is one item of note: The end of June marks my 16th anniversary at my current employer. Let that …

My Latest Buy: EAD

Another month, another stock buy! For June, I made only one stock buy: Wells Fargo Advantage Income Opportunities Fund (NYSEMKT:EAD). I bought 160 shares at $8.01 per share. With a dividend of 6.8 cents per share, those 160 shares will payout $10.88 every month for an annual yield of 10.19%. As per my usual format …

Dividend Income Report for May 2016

And thus ends May 2016. Overall, it was a good month. My 48-hour Las Vegas trip with Mrs. Dividend Quest cost less than I had estimated (the $64 I won playing the slot machines helped a little), celebrated three birthdays (my wife and her 2 kin), and the weather was good at the beginning and …

My Latest Buys: EDF, CODI

This month I didn’t add any new positions to my dividend investing portfolio. Instead, I just bought more shares of stock positions I already hold. I bought 75 more shares of Stone Harbor Emerging Markets Income Fund (NYSE:EDF) at $13.36 per share. With a dividend of 18 cents per share, that will add $13.50 every …

Dividend Income Report for April 2016

Spring is here! Spring and autumn are my favorites seasons, as the temperatures and general weather conditions are milder. Working outside is much more pleasant and the longer daylight hours means some outdoor work can get done on weekdays when I get home from the day job. Enough about weather and other trivialities. You’re here …

My Latest Buys: CODI, PNNT, EHI

How’s your April going? I hope the spring market rally has been treating your portfolio well. For April’s stock buys, I didn’t add any new positions to my portfolio. I just bought additional shares of positions already part of my dividend investing portfolio. With no new positions, this will be a rather short post, as …

Dividend Income Report for March 2016

March is gone and with it the cold, dreary grayshine of Pacific Northwest weather. The flora is starting to bloom and sunny days are becoming more frequent as winter transitions to spring. Mrs. Dividend Quest and I have already gotten into the groove by doing some simple yard-work and garage reorganization and cleaning. Yes, spring …
