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 May?
Last month 10 companies sent me a dividend payout, adding up to a total of $216.
Receiving over $200 dollars each month in dividends makes buying my next addition to the portfolio a little easier. You could say that my own little version of ‘The Snowball’ is starting to pick up some pace!
In addition: as we are approaching the end of H1 , I am growing more and more confident that I can attain my goal of receiving 3,000 in dividend payments this year.
The following table shows the tickers of the companies that made a May 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.
|Ticker||Dividends Received||Dividend per Share Change|
Virtually no changes this month as compared to these company’s last payout.
A modest increase by Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) brings my payout to $63 every quarter. All other companies left their payouts unchanged in May.
Comparing the dividend payout of May 2016 to May 2017 (below) shows an increase from $71 to $216- a YoY growth of 204%.
