All right, so the total this November was $186.12. This means 36,2% increase year-over-year. Generally speaking I would like to see at least 20% growth every month, so this was a very good result. Nice to notice that I'm not very far from $200 milestone in the mid-quarter months.
Great progress with CVS and EMA.TO thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. And of course HRL and HCN as new payers compared to last year. OHI was the biggest payer and its share of the total is a bit elevated. Additionally its risk level has been on the rise lately. Therefore I don't intend to buy more in near future. Here are my dividends in a graph:
Recent Buys in mid-late November. I bought more shares of Gilead Sciences Inc (GILD), Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB), Old Republic International Corporation (ORI) and PPL Corporation (PPL). My Portfolio page has been updated accordingly.
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 November dividends.
