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 October?
Last month 13 companies sent me a dividend payout, adding up to a total of $324.
We are getting close to the end of the year now. Even though it looks like I will not make my goal of receiving $5000 this year - I’ll like end up fairly close to that.
The following table shows the tickers of the companies that made a October 2018 dividend payout to my portfolio. The table features the dividend amount I received and any change in payout as compared to the last pay-out moment.
The fact that 13 companies sent me dividend checks is great in and of itself, but, alas, this month there are no exciting dividend raises to report.
In fact it was only Diageo (DEO) that provided somewhat of a decent boost to it’s dividend, raising their pay-out by 4.07%.
Comparing the dividend payout of October 2017 to October 2018 shows an increase of $256 to $324- a Year-on-Year (YoY) growth of 27%.
This YoY growth is featured in the table below.
