I’ve made a few purchases recently, such as about $8,100 in Ford bringing in $546/year in dividends and $11,700 in ABBV bringing in $663. I also have roughly $91,000 in PGX. This is a relatively stable preferred share ETF that pays a dividend of around 5.37% and pays it monthly (around 0.47%). While I would have liked to invest this money in stocks, I’m going to be needing quite a bit of money for designing and building a house in about 6-7 months. I have also turned off dividend reinvestment and am accumulating cash, also to use for the downpayment.
Lastly, I have put quite a bit of work recently in the Dividend Stock Portfolio Tracker spreadsheet. IEX changed their API recently and it stopped working. I made some updates and it seems to be working much better now. I’ll be writing a new blog post about that soon.
