I hope February was a good month for you and you had a great Valentine’s Day. For me personally, the month was good but nothing much of note occurred. Regarding the stock market, the Russia/Ukraine war certainly affected the Dow 30, as it plunged over 2000 points from the first week of February to the first week of March. For dividend investors, it was an excellent time to snap up dividend paying stocks and “lock in” some good yields.
As for my portfolio’s performance in February, let’s add up the numbers and see how I did:
AWP $ 44.00*
BGY $ 33.80*
CIK $ 22.50
CLM $ 45.20*
DHY $ 27.13
EDF $ 15.00*
EHI $ 26.80*
FGB $ 70.13
NCV $ 29.75*
PFN $ 32.31
ZTR $ 24.00*
* Includes Return of Capital
With its total of $591.22, February was just less than $9 short of a $600 total. Soooo close.
February saw no dividend cuts or dividend increases, so that’s sort of good. Again, because I needed the cash, I sold off 30 shares of CODI at $25.79/share during the first week of the month. With only 70 shares remaining, the end of my CODI holding is near.
Overall, being the lowest earning month of the quarter, February performed as expected.
