Dividend Income - May 2017

All right, while the month of June is well underway already, let's take a look back. In May 2016 I was able to collect $134.95. Since then Deere & Co (DE), HCP Inc (HCP) and Textainer Group Holdings (TGH) have left my portfolio. Thus are no longer contributing to my passive income. But, CVS Health Corporation (CVS), Emera Inc (EMA.TO) and Welltower Inc (HCN) have arrived to replace those positions. A little bit more changes than I would like, but that's the situation this month. In total 12 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of May 2016 and 2017 dividends:

7 Recent Buys - AQN, BNS, GILD, KMB, MDT, ORI, WPC

Let's see what I have been buying lately. In May I added to my positions in Gilead Sciences Inc (GILD) and Old Republic International Corporation (ORI). In the beginning of June I bought more shares of Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp (AQN.TO), The Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS.TO), Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB), Medtronic plc (MDT) and W.P. Carey Inc (WPC).

5 Recent Buys - CU, ADM, EMR, KMB, MMM

So, I had a feeling that I need a new steady dividend payer in my portfolio. A payer with payment schedule during the first month of every quarter, since those months lag behind a little bit. As a result I have initiated a new position in Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB). Other purchases add to my existing positions in Canadian Utilities Ltd. (CU.TO), Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM), Emerson Electric Co. (EMR) and 3M Company (MMM).

Dividend Income - April 2017

All right, the month of April 2017 is finished and wrapped in a neat little packet. If you remember my April report last year, you know this is going to be a bit different kind of summary. That is because I'm going to include all my annual Nordic dividends in this report, no matter what month they actually arrive in my bank account (most will arrive in April anyway). I did the same thing last year, so this should be fully comparable. So, last year in April I managed to collect $1,230.93. I haven't sold any of those stocks that generated income back then, which is ideal situation IMO. This dividend report consists of following 22 companies:

3 Recent Buys - CVS, TGT, UNA

So, I continued on the buying front on the second half of April. I thought that I should report these buys before rather interesting dividend summary from April. Actually in my last purchase post there were CVS Health Corporation (CVS) and Unilever NV (UNA.AS). So is this a mistake you might ask. Well, it is not. CVS and UNA.AS are two my favorite stocks this year, and I would guess that they will see the biggest amounts of fresh capital in my portfolio. Alongside Welltower Inc (HCN), which is a new position for me this year, and possible other new position. Also Target Corporation (TGT) was on my shopping list at this time.
