OK, I'm almost done buying in 2016. Perhaps one more additional purchase coming in last days of the year, but here are three mini buys from mid-December. I have added more shares to my existing positions in Algonquin Power & Utilities Corp (AQN.TO), General Electric Company (GE) and Medtronic plc (MDT).
It's time to publish the last dividend income report during 2016! Next report will see daylight in the first days of new year 2017. Last year in November I was able to collect $117.62. Back then I had high yielding Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI) and HCP Inc (HCP) bringing in over $30. In fact that was the very last dividend I received from KMI, since I terminated my position after their dividend cut. Either HCP no longer exists in my portfolio, so I had some serious patching to do. But luckily I can state that I managed to increase my income from last year. In total 12 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of November 2015 and 2016 dividends:
All right, here we go again. Change of month usually means more active times for me on the buying front. Going from November till December was no exception. I have bought more shares in Algonquin Power & Utilities (AQN.TO), Eversource Energy (ES), Medtronic plc (MDT), W.P. Carey (WPC) and Xcel Energy (XEL).
