Dividend Update – November 2017
I can’t believe how fast this year is going by. Earlier this month, Dividend Daze celebrated its one year blogiversary, which is a huge milestone. I also discussed the growth of the site as well as the goals for it moving forward. But the focus still remains one the dividends. November is over and with it; another full month of collecting dividends is in the books. That leaves us with just one more quarter ending month this year. Let’s take a look at the dividends I collected in November.
NNN – $13.95
GIS – $12.49
HRL – $5.15
O – $3.45
LTC – $3.27
November dividends, add up to $80.68 which represents a 46.6% increase from last year where I made $55.03. Below are some charts from my portfolio page to better visualize the results.
This is the first month I am finally able to actually link to my prior year’s dividend post for comparison. Last year I collected dividends from 4 companies while this year I was able to collect from 7. One position I no longer possess is KMI, even though that only paid me $2.35 last year. I sold it after the dividend cut to put the capital into a different stock. New positions since then that paid me a dividend this month include GIS, HRL, O, and LTC.
I am very happy at the dividend income I collected in November. Almost 50% YoY growth is pretty substantial. Getting close to a triple digit month that isn’t quarter ending as well. Luckily, I was already able to surpass last year’s dividends so anything I collect until the year is over just adds to the total dividends collected milestone for the year.
Get psyched everyone! One more quarter ending month to go! December usually ends up being the best of the year. Time to make those last minute purchases to push your portfolio to the limits. November was great, but can’t wait to see what the rest of the year brings.
