The Money By Ramey Dividend Portfolio: December 2021

Hi everyone! Here is the Dividend Portfolio December 2021 Update: December 2021 Dividends

December 2021 dividends came in at $2,121.33 (Four figures and the highest monthly dividends to date!), which represents a 39.64% increase vs. $1,280.40 worth of dividends earned in December 2020. It’s good to see the dividends continue to increase yoy!

Note that we did receive nearly $800 in monthly distributions from a mutual fund that is owned outside of the portfolio. Though it’s not in the MBR portfolio, we still count it in our dividend metrics. These are a bit more erratic and based on performance, so they are hard to predict. Dividends nonetheless!

December 2021 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 rolls into the #1 spot, mainly on a strong DRIP program. Every time this stock pays out a dividend I buy an addition 1+ share. Pretty amazing!

Johnson and Johnson $JNJ is very close to taking over the #1 spot, but remains in the #2 spot – for now. Love having this stock in my portfolio as it continues to be a strong performer.

After some roaring growth and some December purchases, $KO grabs the #3 spot! Sure it’s a sin stock, but I do like a diet coke every once in a while (as does many others I know)!

$AAPL is in #4 spot (as well as the first $3T dollar company) and MSFT is the final #5 in the top 5.

What else will I be adding to the portfolio in 2022 and beyond? I’ll be on the lookout for the next best stocks on the MoneyByRamey Dividend Stocks Watchlist.

December 2021 Top 10 Stocks by Dividend Income

$T still rounds out the top 5 for our dividend positions by dividend income, though it’s .$52/share dividend is on the way out. I expect this to be halved and wait for the announcement, most likely Q122.

$JNJ maintains the #2 position for ADI. This will be the #1 position in my portfolio in the near-term future 🙂

$KO jumps into the #3 spot for both value & dividend income. This has been a great stock to own!

$PG is the stellar-star performer, being #1 for value and #4 for dividend income. Such a solid performer. This shows that consumer staples is still a solid sector to be involved in.

$XOM is #5 and I’ve been surprised to see the value of the stock go up so much.
