Our Income Producing Stocks

by Dual Income No Kids on March 31, 2007 · 0 comments

A reader emailed us to inquire which income stocks we held. So, to show you how much money we get from our stock dividends, which income isues we have and how many shares we hold, a handy table of our income portfolio is below:

The main point is we are getting around $680 dollars per month from our 7 income stocks. There are a couple of things to keep in mind when you read. First, only the energy trusts pay on a monthly basis. The others pay quarterly. Because of this monthly numbers are just averages, we don’t actually get that much per month. Second, we are running the risk that these companies will cut their payout levels. Some people don’t want to invest in energy trusts because of this concern.

Finally, we have shares in growth stocks also. For example we own shares in Exxon Mobil, the Archer-Daniels Midland Corporation, Marriott Hotels and Resorts, Blockbuster and Denny’s. We are holding onto these shares because we believe they will go up in value, not because they produce income.

Hope this helps. Please feel free to leave a comment if there any good income stocks you would recommend we check out.
