Portfolio Value Update - December 2022

Happy New Year everyone! Wishing you all the best in 2023!

Portfolio Value
In December, my portfolio value decreased by $3,595 from $145,864 to $142,269. The year-end selling has dragged my portfolio down and it’s actually back to the same level it was a year ago. But I'm glad that we can contribute an additional $6,500 starting next month. This will boost the value and the payouts!

Dividends received in December 2022: $661.15
Dividends received in December 2021: $620.15
Year-Over-Year Dividend Growth: $41 or 6.61%
Year-To-Date Dividend Income: $7,405.42

Please note that this year I did not receive any special dividends in December, that’s why the YoY dividend growth is only 6%.
