The Money By Ramey Dividend Portfolio: May 2021

Hi everyone! I’m a bit late to them game here (June has been an insanely busy month). But I wanted to make sure to get my May dividends posted on the site. Here is the Dividend Portfolio May 2021 Update: May 2021 Dividends

May 2021 dividends came in at $640.15, which represents a 28.63% increase vs. $456.85 worth of dividends earned in May 2020. It’s amazing to see the dividend investing strategy pay off as the dividend portfolio continues to perform well from a growth and dividend perspective.

May 2021 Top 10 Stocks by Value

Throughout 2021, I’ve been moving all of my cash into solid, large fortune 100 companies. This is to help better protect my cash position from inflationary pressures due to unsound monetary policies.

I added to my positions in $AAPL, $JPM, and $PEP. I still have a good amount of cash on hand and I’ll be looking to deploy into stocks. Though I’ve been thinking more and more about my portfolio and how to hedge against risks, so I might be adding more to other asset classes to the portfolio.

What else will I be adding to the portfolio in 2021? I’ll be on the lookout for the next best stocks on the MoneyByRamey Dividend Stocks Watchlist.

May 2021 Top 10 Stocks by Dividend Income

$T still rounds out the top 5 for our dividend positions by dividend income, though we all received some bad news that it will be halving its dividend in the near future. I’ll be making this reflection in the future, which will drop it from the top position. It will still be in the top 10 and I’ll most likely hold the stock while hoping for growth prospects to increase.

With my increased positions in $JNJ due to moving from cash into equities, it rounds out the #2 position for ADI. This will be the #1 position in my portfolio in the near-term future 🙂

$PG is the stellar-star performer, being #2 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.

$KO still holds onto the #4 spot. I do like the consistency of this performer and hope it can continue diversifying its holdings.

$XOM is #5 and I’ve been surprised to see the value of the stock go up so much. It will be interesting to see this stock’s trajectory in the years to come as the US is actively looking to phase out fossil fuels.
