My Dividend Growth Portfolio April Update: 42 Holdings, 6 Buys, 5 New Holdings And 1 Called Away

Published Sat, 04 May 2019 07:39:09 -0400 on Seeking Alpha

Introduction
Welcome to my monthly update for my dividend growth portfolio. This article series covers my investing journey as a father of two towards my eventual retirement. Any specific stocks or amounts are particular to my self-directed 401K plan.
The goal of my portfolio is to generate a growing income stream for me and my wife during our golden years. The aim is to live off dividends without touching the principal. Dividend growth stocks are the chosen vehicle to meet that goal. At 33, I have approximately 26 years before I can (safely) touch any of this money.
For anyone interested in seeing changes in real time, I have my portfolio and dividends tracked on Dividend Derek. I also have a trimmed version that you can freely take for yourself if you wish, found here.
I've received some questions in the past, so you can save off a copy by selecting "File" -> "Make A Copy."

Change Log
I introduced a change log as a quick reference to highlight relevant non-data changes. Things like dividends collected, dividend increases and charts will all change each month regardless.
Moved "Target Portfolio" lower in the article Added a "Portfolio Yield" section Commentary
As has been the trend in 2019, indices rose higher and higher during April. New all-time highs were even reached by the beginning of May which also means personal portfolio value highs.
I closed out April with a balance of $320,740 which was up $13,000 from the end of March.
