Monthly Review Of DivGro: August 2022

Welcome to the August review of DivGro, my portfolio of dividend growth stocks. 

These reviews aim to provide a summary of dividends received and to detail buy and sell transactions. Additionally, I look at how the month's activities have impacted DivGro's projected annual dividend income (PADI).

This month, I opened two new positions and added shares to four existing positions. Additionally, I closed one position and reduced my holdings in two positions. Three DivGro stocks announced dividend increases in August. The net result of these changes is that PADI increased by about 0.7% in August. Year over year, PADI increased by 31.5%.

Quarterly Review Of DivGro: Q2-2022

I've been away visiting family in South Africa, so I haven't had a chance to post my Quarterly Review of DivGro for Q2-2022. Since Q3-2022 is almost over, I better get to it!
 
In my quarterly reviews, I summarize dividend income, dividend changes, and transactions executed in the past quarter. Also, I provide some charts showing various portfolio statistics. My quarterly reviews are mostly informational and help me track progress over time.

My portfolio generated about $10,780 of dividend income this quarter, and I'm projecting income from dividends of at least $11,420 per quarter going forward.

DVK Quality Snapshots

David Van Knapp [DVK] presented a simple yet effective quality scoring system for dividend growth [DG] stocks in this article. I adopted the system in late 2019 as the primary way to assess the quality of DG stocks. 

The system employs five widely used quality indicators from independent sources and assigns 0-5 points to each quality indicator, for a maximum of 25 points. 

While there are other factors I consider when selecting stocks for possible investment, I love the simplicity of DVK Quality Snapshots. It does a remarkable job identifying high-quality stocks!
