Quarterly Review, Q3-2013

The third quarter of DivGro has ended and its time again to look at the portfolio's performance.

In Q3, I contributed $3,000 in capital funds to DivGro. Dividend income for the quarter was $385.89, up from $235.34 received in Q2. This is the second consecutive quarterly increase in dividend income.

I purchased shares in five new dividend growth stocks, adding $617.38 to DivGro's projected annual dividend income, which now totals $1,766.19.

On September 30, the market value of DivGro was $46,020.17. This represents a simple profit of 9.57% and an annualized personal rate of return (PRR) of 21.06%.

Outlook For Q4-2013: As this post is my 52nd since January, I've reached one of my goals for 2013, namely to average one blog post per week. My only remaining goal is to exceed the performance of the S&P 500 in total returns. As of Sep 30, 2013, the S&P 500 is up 14.98% year-to-date. In comparison, DivGro's annualized PRR is 21.06%. So far, so good! I'm looking forward to reporting on DivGro's fourth quarter results and, hopefully, that I've outperformed the S&P 500...
