Get instant overview of your dividend investment
Safety first. Every dividend portfolio needs a solid diversification across sectors. You also shouldn’t pick just a few stocks; always try to find new opportunities.
Many dividend investors make one mistake. They simply calculate the average yield. To get precise number you need a weighted average yield, which counts with a number of shares and gives your precise dividend yield.
The current dividend yield is a good thing to know. In the long run, it is not calculating the real yield of your investment. The yield on cost represents the real yield of your investment, so if you bought a stock during a dip, you would have a bigger yield than if you bought it for a current price.
This is the simplest but also the most-watched metric. What is the real amount of money you get from your dividend portfolio? It should always be calculated per year because different stocks have different frequencies of payouts
The total return is not a key metric for dividend growth investors, but it is still worth knowing what a real return of your portfolio is, so you have a general overview of performance and know where you stand.
You should have the possibility to see everything that is going on with your portfolio. Are there any dividend cuts? Is there a big price surge? Also, it is a great thing just to see your dividend come; we believe that it reinforces good financial habits and helps you to stay focused on the goal.
