Monthly Update June 2015

city

June was another quiet month relating to my stock exchange activity. But I used some spare time to upgraded my computer with a new SSD and a new harddrive. Additional to my annual payment of my automobile club membership and some tax repayment from 2013 – this resulted in very high expenditures this month.

(assuming €:$ 1:1.1 currency exchange rate )

Income

Day Job Paycheck $3920
Dividend Income $309

Total Income $4229

Expense

Total Expense $1912

Saved Net Income 56%

Again, I contributed nothing to my broker account.

This month I cost averaged ARCP and HTGC, both are now overweight in my portfolio. I will trim them back when they are in a more friendly price territory.

 

Purchases

Stock Units Price Date Cost
HTGC 200 $11.75 2015-06-15 $2350
ARCP 300 $8.19 2015-06-25 $2457

 

Sells


 

No sells this time, but I’m still looking for a good exit from the still falling PSEC.

 

Dividends

PSEC $42.48
MAIN $32.90 (includes a special dividend)
NMFC $49.13
BP $29.75
TCPC $61.20
HP $23.38
ESV $10.20
RDS-B $31.02
GILD $14.62
Total $308.83

Wow!! I earned $308.83 in dividends this month! This is an all time high and again this is mainly due to the high BDC exposure (over 60%!).
But nevertheless I’m proud to achieve such a number after only one year of investing! After trimming my BDC holdings in the near future, it will need a long time to achieve such numbers again. But on the other side it will give me much more confidence in the stability of my dividend payments.

    Congrats on a record breaking month! Looks like you’ve got a nice snowball building there. Getting pretty hefty.
    Take care,

      Mr. MM,
      thanks for your visit! Yes, June was my record breaking month for the current year. I’m really looking forward to break the record again!
