My goals were defined in this December 1, 2007 Investing Goals post. Below is an updated version of the table found in the original post.
|Div. Changes YTD||50||0.07%|
For the month, dividend income increased $101, and Yield on Cost (YOC) decreased -0.11%. These changes were driven by new purchases and dividend changes (no sales in June). Let's examine each of the these categories:
Purchases: The $133 increase in annual dividend income and -0.08% decrease in YOC related to the following purchases (yield at the time of purchase):
- $27 PEP (2.51%)
- $52 BP (4.57%)
- $54 VYM (3.40%)
Dividend Changes: The -$32 decrease in annual dividend income and -0.04% decrease in YOC related to the following dividend changes (a=dividend stated in annual terms, q=quarterly, m=monthly):
- $6 JNJ : 0.415q>0.46q : 0.00%
- $2 VYM : 1.65a>1.67a : 0.01%
- ($7) VFH : 1.67a>1.56a : (0.01%)
- ($34) VNQ : $4.05a>3.05a : (0.04%)
- $1 VIG : 0.98a>1.00a : 0.00%
Sales: I did not sell any income portfolio investments in June.
The next monthly progress update will be on Saturday, August 2nd.
