All right, so the total this May was $160.16. This means 18,7% increase year-over-year. Generally speaking I would like to see at least 20% growth every month, so I just fell short of that target. In the times of March-April I was using a bit less fresh capital, and I guess it shows here. Luckily it's not a big miss though. I should be able to compensate it during the following months.
Good progress with ABT, GIS, OHI thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. And of course CVS, EMA.TO and HCN as new investments compared to last year. AT&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 August. Before next ex-dividend date I'm currently looking to buy additional shares at least in CVS, EMA.TO, GIS, PG 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 May dividends.
Disclosure: Long all stocks that paid dividend in May 2017.
