This means 12,1% increase from September 2014. All right, not a phenomenal year over year increase like in August, but still a nice one. The pattern seems quite clear when I look at my dividend income this year. First and second month of a quarter bring smaller cash in dollars, but bigger increase in percentage. And third month of a quarter, like this September for instance, vice versa. This will most likely continue in Q4. Pure math explains part of this, but also some portfolio changes I have made since last year.
Biggest cash checks this month came from JNJ, LMT, CVX and COP. Like you see Oil&Gas still pretty important payer, even though I have tried to avoid buying more there. I would love to average down in CVX and COP, but on the other hand I would not like to increase their importance in my cash flow.
Total dividends from months 1-9 this year: $2233,76. This is 18,3% increase from last year $1888,45. It's definitely very nice feeling to be almost $350 ahead of last year's pace. My goal in 2015 is to make $2600. So only one quarter left this year, it will be a close call, to say the least. December will finally make it or break it. I can feel that the very last month this year will be big, but is it going to be big enough!?
Speaking about December, most of these stocks will pay again then. At the moment I feel like I should buy more JNJ, GILD, UN, ENB.TO before next ex-divy date. And actually I just added a couple shares of UN which I will put to my next purchase report. Hopefully I will have some capital for EMR, NSC and ES too.
Dividend Income page has been updated to include September dividends.
All right, I guess that's all for now. Now let's just collect nice dividends in October and make some great purchases!
