It’s time for my favorite type of post: a tally of the dividends I received in the prior month.
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.
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- a YoY growth of 154%.
