Dividend Update: November 2017

It’s time for my favorite type of post: a tally of the dividends I received in the prior month.

Given my strategy of DGI, it is really the dividend payouts that I care about. For each of the companies I invest in, I like to see a steady and growing stream of dividend payouts.

So how did I do in November?

Last month 12 companies sent me a dividend payout, adding up to a total of $262.

November is typically an ‘off month’ for receiving dividends as the majority of companies tend to pay out in March, September, October and December.

However, $262 is still a nice chunk of change though and adds nicely to my dividend goals for 2017. November brought my total received dividends for 2017 to ~$2,800 – in striking distance of my $3,000 goal for the entire year.

The following table shows the tickers of the companies that made a November 2017 dividend payout to my portfolio.

It features the dividend amount I received and any change in payout as compared to the last payout moment.

TickerDividends ReceivedDividend per Share Change
T$24.50
VZ$29.502.16%
CVS$25.00
STAG$5.88
OHI$65.001.56%
ACN$19.959.92%
ABBV$25.60
CAT$23.40
WSM$11.70
CLDT$11.00
SPG$18.502.78%
SBRA$2.081.07%

 

Look at the table, a nice – almost – 10% dividend increase from Accenture (ACN) stands out.

The Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) dividend raise  might not seem much, but the company has raised their payout every quarter since I bought it in August of 2015. Given it’s recent price drop I am actually tempted to add more.

Other dividend increases are as expected and nothing spectacular. But any dividend raise is a good raise.

Comparing the dividend payout of November 2016 to November 2017 (below) shows an increase from $103 to $262- YoY growth of 154%.

  2. Hi TI,

    congrats on that awesome YOY growth rate of 154%!! and 262$ for the month is pretty solid too. When i look at the companies which paid you, i especially like ABBV, T, STAG, OHI and WSM…I’m absolutely happy with my November results – the dividend income total was 221$ and the yoy growth rate was 66%.

    Keep it up!!

    1. DividendSolutions,

      It’s a great lineup of companies, and diversified among different industries and companies. ABBV has been on a tear this year, both in stock price as well as dividend growth.

      Your dividend income for November is great, with a very decent YoY growth number.

      Are you eying any new companies or are you adding to existing positions?
