Dec 2021 Net Worth


December was a fantastic month and capped a fantastic year.  I ended up gaining $20,000 and that was even with the purchase of an engagement ring for my fiance. Maybe I didn't spend enough on it ;) 

The S&P 500 finished up 27% for the year. I believe almost 30% counting dividends. Absolutely sensational considering its 15% gain in 2000 and 31% gain in 2019. I read somewhere that since the beginning of 2019 the market has compounded at a 28% clip. Jaw dropping wealth creation.

While I didn't quite make it back to the double comma club, I'm still up $18,000 on the year after all expenses. Again, I ended up paying off my fiance's car, building a new backyard oasis, and getting engaged. Hopefully the expense column reverts to normal levels next year. We'll see!

Happy New Year everyone!

Weekly Stock Purchases


Yesterday I added to my MO position.

  • MO: 180 shares @ $47.82 --- Yield  7.53%

Total capital invested is $8607.60 and this purchase will add $648.00 to my yearly dividends.

I now have an even 1000 shares of MO which will provide $3600.00 of yearly dividend income.  

I should also mention that I have 12 open $45 MO puts that have been open most of this year. The first 7 expire on Jan 21, 2022 and the other 5 expire in Jan 2023. The assignment of next month's shares would be around $41.50 so it is unlikely that I will be assigned unless MO drops $5 dollars or so during the next few weeks.

I continue to like MO below $45. I also would like to add XOM if the price drops into the mid $50s.

The markets have been rebounding nicely so far in December, but I still like these names. I'm also keeping my eyes on MRK as well and will start a position below $70.

November 2021 Net Worth





November ended up being a wild ride. Patios, pergolas, landscaping and paying off my girlfriend's car did some serious damage to the net worth. 

After counting all the beans I was down just over $69,000 for the month and $1200 in the red for the year. Not bad considering I have spent a ton of money this year. 

It will be nice to regain Double Comma status, but living a healthy life in a work optional setting is enough for now.


Here are my net worth totals for the end of November.


Checking --- $109,770
Savings/Investments --- $290,832
HSA --- $1,550
IRA --- $13,604
401K --- $538,605
2014 Jeep Wrangler --- $14,000

Recent Purchases ---- MO, IBM, CAH, VTI, BND

 

Today I created a new position in CAH and added to MO, IBM, VTI, and BND.


MO:  100 shares @ $42.60 --- Yield  8.45%

IBM:  50 shares @ $117.40 --- Yield  5.59%

CAH:  25 shares @ $46.71 --- Yield  4.20%

VTI:  4 shares @ $235.15 --- Yield  1.21%

BND:  6 shares @ $85.38 --- Yield  1.95%


Total capital invested is $12,750.63 and the combine yield is 5.95%.  These purchases will increase my yearly dividends by $758.35.


I've been buying VTI and BND throughout the year towards the end of each month.  Traditional dividend stocks continue to underperform so I'll gladly add to these position and start new positions as well.
