Dividend Income - October 2017

All companies paying in Oct 2016 were still paying in 2017, plus Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB) as a new payer. So, very little changes during the year which is good.

Other purchases add to my existing positions at Archer-Daniels-Midland Co. (ADM), Canadian Utilities Ltd. (CU.TO), Emera Inc. (EMA.TO), Enbridge Inc. (ENB.TO) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ).
