Dividend Update April 2018April 26, 2018
Welcome to the first edition of Dividend Update, where we show the progress of our dividend growth over time and display how powerful compounding interest is.
The dividend payouts are a combination of both Mr. and Mrs. Income Master’s Superannuation (401k for our USA readers) accounts and our taxable investment brokerage accounts.
All amounts shown are in Australian dollars. Or as some would say, dollarydoos.
IVV – Blackrock S&P 500 dividends – $2.67
VEU – Vanguard All World Ex-US dividends – $11.90
WFS0863AU – BT Wholesale Plus High Growth Fund dividends – $32.65
VGE – Vanguard Emerging Markets ETF dividends – $3.22
Total dividend income for April 2018: $50.44
A bit of a quieter month as a lot of other payouts had already occurred in March but not too bad overall. IVV Blackrock S&P 500 dividends would have been higher as Mrs. Income Master holds more of these units than myself but just missed the dividend payout this time around as the shares were only recently purchased. On the upside, the IVV shares were bought when the S&P was hit pretty hard a few weeks back so she has seen nice gains on them already in a short space of time.
Another recently purchased ETF that we just missed the dividend cut-off date was VGS – Vanguard MSCI Index International Shares. Next time!
We both hold a small amount of VGE – Vanguard Emerging Markets ETF and will gradually continue to buy more.
The BT Wholesale Plus High Growth Fund is a retail fund offered on the BT Super Invest platform we covered on it’s launch day. It’s a well performing fund with a 1 year return of 8.66% (as of 31st of March, 2018) and offers quarterly dividends.
The Asset allocation as of 31st of March, 2018.
|BT Wholesale Plus High Growth Fund||% Assets|
|Australian Listed Property||5.26|
|International Fixed Interest||2.04|
|Domestic Fixed Interest||1.97|
|International Listed Property||0.93|
I’ve been holding VEU Vanguard All World Ex-US shares for a while now and currently sitting at a profit of 9.86%. Unfortunately, the dividends dropped a fair bit this quarter.
It’s a pity my best performer, A2M Shares (50.55% profit) doesn’t pay dividends but maybe one day they will.
