Portfolio Value Update - June 2020

Portfolio Value
In June, my stock portfolio value increased by $11,398 and closed at $83,370. Most of the increase came from new stock purchases. I added $9,299 worth of new stocks. The rest of the growth came from stocks appreciation.

Dividends received in June 2020: $361.07
Dividends received in June 2019: $346.23
Year-Over-Year Dividend Growth: $14.84 or 4.28%
Year-To-Date Dividend Income: $2,441.88

A very low dividend growth rate compared to last year. This is because one of my holdings, Alaris Royalty, switch the dividend payment schedule from monthly to quarterly. Had I received the dividend from Alaris, my YOY growth would have been 11.80%. It is what it is. I’ll take the 4.28% growth home!

AdSense Earnings
Adsense earnings from the blog: $0.73
Adsense earnings from YouTube: $234.92
Total AdSense earnings: $235.65

Adsense earnings increased by 172% from last year; from $86.55 to $235.65. In June, my YouTube videos received 146K views and the channel gained 627 new subscribers. I happy the way the channel is performing so far.

June was a busy month for me in terms of transactions. Please refer to my previous post to read about the stocks that I bought.

  1. Nice job German, soon your income will be over $400. My income actually dropped 3.17% in June due to a company changing their payment schedule.

    1. Yeah, same here, Matt. Alaris Royalty changed their payment schedule from monthly to quarterly so that will be compensated the next month. Looking forward to seeing your report :)

  2. This is exacly the same dividend income as in May?
