All right, so the total this February was $159.57. This means 37,8% increase year-over-year. Generally speaking I would like to see at least 20% growth every month, so this was a very good result indeed.
Great progress in ABT, GIS, OHI and RY.TO thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. And of course CVS, EMA.TO and HCN as new investments compared to last year. T as a high yield telecom continues to be important income producer too. Here are my dividends in a graph:
All these companies should pay again in May. Before next ex-dividend date I'm looking to buy additional shares at least in CVS, EMA.TO, GIS and HCN.
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 February dividends.
Disclosure: Long all stocks that paid dividend in February 2017 except DE.
