March is behind us; it’s time to look back and check on the dividends for the 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 March?
Last month 21 companies sent me a dividend payout, adding up to a total of $282. That is definitely a record for me - and really getting close to $300 a month! Very pleased about this and my progress in building ever growing monthly dividend payouts.
The following table shows the tickers of the companies that made a March 2017 dividend payout to my portfolio. It features the dividend amount I received, the dividend per share and any change in payout as compared to the last payout moment.
|Ticker||Dividends Received||Dividend per Share||Dividend per Share Change|
Some decent dividend increases here - big fan of these double digit growth numbers. Delving into these numbers a bit - the UL dividend did not decrease but was lower (as compared to last payout) due to the exchange rate.
Comparing the dividend payout of March 2017 to March 2016 (below) shows an increase from $146 to $282 - a YoY growth of 93%.
