How To Collect $1,000 Per Month From Warren Buffett’s Favorite Energy Stock

Legendary investor Warren Buffett has achieved astounding returns throughout his career. From 1964 to 2022, his company Berkshire Hathaway Inc. (NYSE:BRK) delivered an overall gain of 3,787,464%, dwarfing the S&P 500’s 24,708% return during the same period.

Other than picking stocks that skyrocketed in value, Buffett also collects dividends — a lot of dividends.

Buffett famously said, “If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die.”

In January, Chevron’s board approved a 6% increase to the company’s quarterly dividend to $1.51 per share. With this increase, Chevron is on track to mark 2023 as the 36th consecutive year of increased annual dividend payout per share.

Chevron follows a quarterly distribution schedule. If you want to collect $1,000 per month from the company, you are looking at $3,000 per quarter. And that means you would need to own 1,986.75 shares of the company. This is calculated by dividing the $3,000 by the per-share quarterly payout of $1.51.
