June 2015 Dividends

Another good month of collecting dividends and reinvesting them in my IRA.  For my taxable account I continue to amass cash so I can make a purchase.   My market is looking better so I hope to have some cash to deploy soon.

The biggest surprise I missed was ol' blue with a large increase of 15.4 percent.  I did the math a few times to be sure of it (but I could still be wrong). If that is their pace for the future and they meet or beat earnings going forward I might have to add to my position.

Compared to the same time last year my dividends were cut in half or so.  The biggest change was the complete dividend cut (SDRL) and partial cut (RIG).  This was a large chunk of change I will never get back from them.  This was a purchase before I knew better and was very high risk.  Any dividends I received from them did not come close the loss I toke from Mr. Market when they cut their dividends.  You are always learning in life that is for sure.


Happy dividend collecting,
