All right, so the total this January was $126.86. This means 43,5% increase year over year. Wow, that's a very nice looking growth. Of course the starting point was pretty low. Probably I won't see this kind of growth in the coming months, but I'm enjoying this now.
Great progress with AQN.TO, BNS.TO and CSCO thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. And of course MDT and XEL as new investments compared to last year. WPC as a high yield REIT continues to be important income producer too. Here are my dividends in a graph:
All these companies should pay again in April. Before next ex-dividend date I'm looking to buy additional shares at least in AQN.TO, MDT and XEL.
Please note that I don't make any currency conversions here. I report dividends as they appear in their own currency. This time AGU.TO, BNS.TO and RCI.B.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 January dividends.
Disclosure: Long all stocks that paid dividend in January 2017.
