This marks 33,8% increase year over year. Growth over 30% is a good result. Biggest payments came from JNJ, MAIN and LMT. That paycheck from MAIN was exceptional this month since it paid special dividend (like it paid in June 2015 too). So, I could say that I was able to fill the gap left by those stocks no longer in my portfolio. Biggest "gap-filler" was ADM going from zero to $12.00.
Total dividends during months 1-6 this year: $1,880.40. This is 1,1% increase from last year. Phew! It feels good to be on the positive side again at least. I report all my annual Nordic dividends in April, which means that progress during first half of the year largely depends on those dividends. Here are my dividends in a graph:
All these companies should pay dividend again in September. At the moment I'm considering adding more shares of AMGN, ES, GILD, ORI, TGT and UNA.AS. Please note that I don't make any currency conversions here. I report dividends as they appear in their own currency. This time ENB.TO was paid in CAD, UNA.AS in EUR and the rest 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 June dividends.
Happy 4th of July to all readers from the States!
