2022-04 Dividend Income Report

Here is the dividend income report for April, 2022.

The monthly dividend income came out to $265.84. The yearly income total for 2022 through the end of the month was $2397.58.

The income for April, 2021 was $259.95, and the yearly income for 2021 through the end of April was $2339.11.

I sold RLI. I spent about $2500 total, and when I sold I got about $12K. I had already sold about $3K in 2019, so I was “playing with the house’s money” (as Cramer would put it).

I think I will use that money to buy a commodities fund. There are not too many that pay dividends. I made a list of the broad commodities from the ETF.com commodities channel, and find one that pays a good dividend. But as I was looking through the pages for the S&P Indices, I thought perhaps there is one for commodities that I could look at. I will look into the S&P GSCI Dynamic Roll index. The corresponding ETF is COMT, the iShares GSCI Commodity Dynamic Roll Strategy ETF. It paid quarterly up through 2018. Since then, it has only paid dividends in December. In 2019, it paid $0.857 a share. In 2020, it paid $0.096 a share. In 2021, it paid $5.494 a share.

I will also look into looking at AAM S&P 500 High Dividend Value ETF (NYSE:SPDV). It is follows the S&P 500 Dividend and Free Cash Flow Yield Index. It has not had a lot of capital appreciation, but it does pay a monthly dividend.

Here is a table with the year-to-date amounts, the monthly amounts, and the three- and twelve-month moving averages for each April from 2011 through 2022:
