Portfolio Value Update - November 2020

Portfolio Value
In November, my stock portfolio value increased by $11,858 and closed at $100,535. That was the biggest month-over-month increase of all time. All of the gains came from stocks appreciation. I did not add any new funds to my account. It feels good to finally hit a new milestone.

Dividends received in November 2020: $418.76
Dividends received in November 2019: $370.01
Year-Over-Year Dividend Growth: $48.75 or 13.17%
Year-To-Date Dividend Income: $4,544.21

The dividend income came in slightly lower because I wasn’t paid by Northview Apartment REIT. The company was sold in November and I reinvested the money. It will take a few months for new dividends to properly reflect in my account. I wrote about this transaction in my previous post.

Ads Revenue 
Adsense earnings from the blog: $2.92
Adsense earnings from YouTube: $1,054.50
Total AdSense earnings: $1,057.42

The ads revenue is out of control. For the first time ever, my YouTube channel has crossed the $1,000 mark. It’s worth noting that October, November, and December are historically the best performing months. I have Christmas related videos on my channel that do exceptionally well during the holiday season. I also expect to earn over a $1,000 in December and then it should cool down in January.

  1. Congratulations on hitting six figures with your portfolio value. November was a pretty darn good month for investors. Congrats on the YoY growth in dividend income, the snowball is growing bigger.

    1. Thanks, Matt. November was a nice recovery month. Some stocks are even priced higher pre-covid levels. Hitting the six figure portfolio value was very important milestone for me. The next 100K should be a lot quicker.

  2. Congrats on a solid month! Really awesome Youtube revenue you're getting. Amazing stuff. :)

    1. Thanks, Bob. I read that you had a solid month too, despite the cuts. Hopefully next year you're not dipping below 2K per month.
