Dividend Income - September 2017

All right, three quarters of four finished in 2017. Let's see how I did during the last month of third quarter. But first, let's take a look one year back. In September 2016 I was able to collect $160.23. Once again, trying to improve from there. Since then only one company, Norfolk Southern Corporation (NSC), has left my portfolio. No new dividend payers, so very few changes compared to last year which is good in my book. Wishing to crack sweet $200 mark, let's see if I was able to do that. In total 16 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of September 2016 and 2017 dividends:

And here we are August 2017 is finished and wrapped in a package, so it's time to see how it went. But first, let's take a look one year back.

Specially HCP was an important payer back then. But, Emera Inc (EMA.TO) and Welltower Inc (HCN) have arrived to replcae those positions. In total 12 companies paid dividend to me this month.

Dividend Income - July 2017

All right, another month of 2017 in the books, so it's time to see how it went. In July 2016 I was able to collect $112.83. Wow, that looks rather low number now. Definitely looking to improve from there. All companies that paid me one year back are still in my portfolio paying dividends, which is a great situation. Additionally there are two new companies compared to last year. These are Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB) and Xcel Energy Inc (XEL). In total 15 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of July 2016 and 2017 dividends:
