All right, so the total this July was $159.10. This means 41% increase year-over-year. Generally speaking I would like to see at least 20% growth every month, so this time the growth was double that! Obviously very good result.
Great progress with AQN.TO and MDT thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. And of course KMB 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:
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 July dividends.
