Hi everyone! Here is the monthly update for the dividend portfolio.

Overall, we feel truly blessed to be on this journey to financial freedom and it’s always great to see the dividends on autopilot! We have some exciting announcements coming up for MoneyByRamey in the weeks ahead, so stay tuned.

Here is the Dividend Portfolio April 2023 Update: April 2023 Dividends

April 2023 dividends came in at $421.01 which represents a (2.65%) decrease vs. $432.47 worth of dividends earned in April 2022.

We’re hopeful that our dividends will continue to track where 2022 lands even though we sold a good amount of stock to purchase a multi-family real estate purchase.

April 2023 Top 10 Stocks by Value

As you can see, the top 10 positions by overall value rank in the MoneyByRamey dividend portfolio are made up of a solid 10 performers – all US based.

$PG skyrockets into the the #1 spot. Everyone needs their consumer goods.

$KO back at #2 spot – still a great performer though. I enjoy thinking about my Coke position whenever I enjoy a Diet Coke or Coke Zero.

$JNJ slips to the #3 spot. Lots of fluctuations in the month – volatility is our friend as we want to see market corrections to buy more stock.

$AAPL still solidly in the #4 spot.

$MSFT jumps into the #5 spot. This has been a solid stock and with the recent dividend increase and overall market volatility, I would expect investors to seek safe haven in stocks like this one.

What else will I be adding to the portfolio in 2023 and beyond? I’ll be on the lookout for the next best stocks on the MoneyByRamey Dividend Stocks Watchlist.

April 2023 Top 10 Stocks by Dividend Income

$JNJ is the power house, being the #1 stock for dividend income AND #3 stock for value. Keep trucking!

$KO still rock solid at the #2 spot for dividend income and the #2 spot for value! This has been a great stock to own!

$PG is great performer, being #1 for value and #3 for dividend income. Such a solid performer. This shows that consumer staples is still a solid sector to be involved in.

$XOM is #4 for dividend income. With oil prices on the rise, Exxon Mobil is set for years to come. With the world transition to more green energy initiatives, I’m not sure this will be a long-term play in the portfolio, but for now I am taking Exxon’s dividends in cash and using it to deploy into new trades.

$IBM comes in at the #5 spot due to dividend reinvestment. You have to love DRIP!
