April 2024 Newsletter

Welcome to the April edition of DivGro 2.0's monthly newsletter!

In February, I strategically adjusted my DivGro portfolio, increasing my investments in stocks with higher dividend growth rates. Stocks with higher dividend growth rates often outperform stocks with higher dividend yields when looking at total returns.

The strategic adjustment involved many buy and sell transactions, and DivGro's projected annual dividend income [PADI] decreased significantly, from $50,499 in January to $45,868 in February. I aim to increase DivGro’s PADI to $48,000 by year’s end and reap the benefits of much higher total returns in the years to come.

I closed one position in March and added shares to three existing positions. DivGro now contains 75 positions, with 68 dividend growth [DG] stocks, three dividend-paying stocks, three closed-end funds [CEFs], and one stock that doesn't pay dividends. DG stocks have dividend increase streaks of five or more years.
