Novemebr 2021 Dividend Income Report - $4.15

Updated: 8 December, 2021 seen 80

Welcome to the fifty-fifth (#55) dividend income report, covering earnings I've made from dividend-paying stocks in November 2021.

Last November, just like the October and September we spent both in Georgia and Latvia, there were some circumstances that required us to travel forth and back a few times. Nevertheless, we still managed to make a few nice road trips, visit some nice restaurants, and so on.

We got a nice rental flat in Riga city center and agreed to send our daughter to QSI Tbilisi international school. The cost for international schools is pretty high. For the pre-school, we are going to pay about $5,500 yearly, but starting at age 5 the cost will be closer and above $25,000. 

I hope dividend income (and options income) will help us to cover the costs.

From the perspective of dividend income - Last November was very low, but as I'm rebuilding the portfolio from the scratch - it's picking up. Slowly but steady.  

In total, I took $4.15 in dividend income last month. Which is quite awesome, for doing nothing, just holding stakes at great companies (y).

Back in July, I decided to start it over and build a dividend-paying stock portfolio from scratch, I sold all existing positions, kept some cash, and started selling credit spreads to generate income, which is used to buy these stocks. 

An additional $323 was made from options trading

As options trading is not a passive form of making money while you are sleeping it wouldn't be fair to include them in dividend income reports.

Dividend income in November 2021

From the dividend stocks I got the following income last month:

AAPL $0.75


Total: $4.15

I agree this is nothing much, but still every bit counts

Two dividend stocks paid us dividends last month.

There are no plans to significantly boost dividend income in November, February, May and August, but will see. I hope in the next quarterly month to take some $10

Monthly dividend income

2021 is not our best year for dividend income, but I'm really looking to return back to normal in 2022/2023

Stock Buys

Last month I bought 10 AAPL,  20 ARCC, 13 AWP, 12 BAC,  20 HPE, 10 INTC, 20 MPW, 115 PFE, 40 WBA, and 8 WMB. These buys will greatly contribute to future dividend income growth.

Trailing twelve months value

At the end of November 2021, my projected trailing twelve-month dividend value stood at $72.35. It translates to about $868.18 annual dividend income or $2.37 daily dividend income.

The average monthly old-age pension in Latvia is EUR 365 ($412). At the end of September, my average monthly dividend income stood at 17.56 % level from the average old-age pension in Latvia. 

Goals for Novembe 2022

When looking at November 2022, I will be quite optimistic and say USD 50 is what I'm looking at.
