Last year in May I was able to collect $103.87. Kinder Morgan (KMI) is haunting me again since last year it was my biggest payer in May. And it no longer exists in my portfolio. Despite that I'm looking for clear improvement over last year. Let's see, here are those 12 companies that paid dividend to me this month:
- Abbott Laboratories (ABT) - 11.71
- AT&T (T) - 15.36
- Deere & Co (DE) - 7.20
- General Mills (GIS) - 10.12
- HCP Inc (HCP) - 17.25
- Main Street Capital (MAIN) - 5.40
- Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) - 18.56
- ONEOK Inc (OKE) - 11.07
- Procter & Gamble (PG) - 12.05
- Realty Income (O) - 6.37
- Royal Bank of Canada (RY.TO) - 14.58
- Textainer Group Holdings (TGH) - 5.28
This means 29,9% increase from May 2015. OK! Around 30% increase year-over-year is not bad at all. Biggest payments came from AT&T, HCP, Omega Healthcare Investors and Royal Bank of Canada.
Total dividends in months 1-5 this year: $1,720.42. This is 1,1% decrease from last year. Here we can see the effect of Nordic annual dividends. My foreign dividends are going in right direction, but Nordic ones are not. Here are my dividends in a graph:
All these companies should pay dividend again in August. At the moment I'm considering adding more shares of ABT, T, OKE, RY.TO. Please note that I don't make any currency conversions here. I report dividends as they appear in their own currency. This time RY.TO was paid in CAD and others in USD. Additionally all numbers are before taxes. This prevents currency fluctuations and tax hassles from affecting my progress.
Thanks for reading. Dividend Income page has been updated to include March dividends.
