Dividend Update: November 2018

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 17 companies sent me a dividend payout, adding up to a total of $445.

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 at around $4600.

The following table shows the tickers of the companies that made a November 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.

Ticker Dividends Received Dividend per Share Change
VZ $45.19 2.12%
T $75.00
CVS $30.00
STAG $5.92
OHI $66.00
AOS $5.50
ABBV $48.00
ACN $21.90 9.77%
ETN $9.90
TXN $7.70
CAT $12.90
WSM $12.90
DAL $35.00
SPG $20.00
SBUX $36.00
SBRA $1.80
CLDT $11.00
TOTAL 444.71


The fact that 17 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 just two companies decided to increase their dividend pay-out to me this past month.

Verizon (VZ) provided a tiny, but nonetheless welcome, increase of 2.12%.

Accenture (ACN) did better by raising their dividend by almost 10%.

Comparing the dividend payout of November 2017 to November 2018 shows an increase of $262 to $445- a Year-on-Year (YoY) growth of 69%.

This YoY growth is featured in the table below.
