All right, so the total this November was $136.67. This means 16,2% increase year over year. Generally speaking I would like to see at least 20% growth every month. But considering the circumstances this was a good result. It typically slows your progress down when you terminate (for one reason or other) high yielding positions.
Great progress with OHI and RY.TO thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. And of course ABT, CVS and EMA.TO as new investments compared to last year. AT&T as a high yield telecom continues to be important income producer too.
Total dividends during months 1-11 this year: $2,652.53. This is 8,5% increase from last year. Here are my dividends in a graph:
All these companies should pay again in February. Before next ex-dividend date I'm looking to buy additional shares at least in ABT, CVS, EMA.TO, GIS and PG. Purposely I didn't mention biggest payers OHI and T. Yields are of course very attractive, but I try to smooth out my income between positions.
Please note that I don't make any currency conversions here. I report dividends as they appear in their own currency. This time EMA.TO and RY.TO were paid in CAD 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 November dividends.
