All right, so the total this August was $171.43. This means 23,8% increase year-over-year. Generally speaking I would like to see at least 20% growth every month, so this time the growth was nicely above that target.
Great progress with CVS and GIS thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. And of course HCN and EMA.TO as new investments compared to last year. OHI 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 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 August dividends.
