All right, so the total this March was $184.48. This means 22,7% increase year-over-year. Generally speaking I would like to see at least 20% growth every month, so this is nicely above that target.
Great progress in MMM, TGT, and UNA.AS thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. And of course AMGN and CU.TO as new investments compared to last year. JNJ as my biggest investment by market value continues to be important income producer too. Here are my dividends in a graph:
Please note that I don't make any currency conversions here. I report dividends as they appear in their own currency. This time CU.TO and ENB.TO were paid in CAD, UNA.AS was paid 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 March dividends.
