On September 24, 2018, I bought 45 shares of Stone Harbor Emerging Mkt Total Income FD (EDI ) at $12.32 per share. With its monthly dividend payout of 0.151 dollars per share, this latest buy has a dividend yield of 14.71% and will pay me us $6.79 every month. Awesome! 

I bought this share for my child's portfolio. Without hesitation, I can say - our 3-month-old baby has a dividend portfolio generating already $12.81/mo. I'm looking to grow it towards $50/mo by the end of 2019. For right now I find it OK investing in higher yield and more riskier stocks. 14.71% yield, that's huge. Our first stock for child's portfolio though is at 19.87%, which is a little bit insane.see: Latest US Stock Buy: CLM

I come up with a plan to build high-yield $10,000 child investment portfolio by the time she will turn 2. (July 2020). Right now we are looking at $80-$100 monthly dividends by the time baby will turn 2.  

Our child's portfolio now has as TTM at $153.72, giving daily $0.4211 and hourly 0.01754$. I really like these numbers.

I don't plan to go for a separate child investment account, instead, I will keep investing in my own portfolio, but will keep a separate Google Spreadsheet to track baby dividend progress. See: Simple Google Spreadsheet to Track Stock Portfolio Changes Using GOOGLEFINANCE

For the rest of the year, we are looking to get a dividend income of $17.31 from this stock, which is about 1.44% from my personal $1,200 goal for 2018.

There is one more stock I'm looking to add to our child's portfolio by the end of 2018, but let's leave that for another article.
