September 2020 Dividends

 Q3 Completed  and I have received over $1300 in dividends from Multiple companies  .

Again New record for September even with  dividend cuts in WFC .

Biggest Payers  are DFS,LMT,GILD from stocks and VMCPX from Funds.


Compared to 2019 September  my dividends went up by 14% which is lot better than decrease.

Looking back its good to see the growth in the dividends reaching 4 digits in 2019 and continuing 2020.

September Dividends

2020 Goal: 

I had a goal 11K in dividends for this year, so far i collected 58% of the Goal .It will be difficult unless i add some huge amount of new funds .Lets see where i will end.

August Dividends

 August  month 8 is in Books and  time is flying even quicker. I have received dividends from 21 companies this month across my accounts.

I received $502 in dividends this month and its a new record for me for the month of august even with big cuts in WFC. Compared to last August  its an increase of 16%. With AAPL/T/CAT being the biggest payers.

As seen it has been good growth for the last few years .

I crossed 5K dividends with this month dividends.I had a Goal of 11K Dividends for this year and with all these cuts it will be a tough ask,as of this month i reached 46% of goal. If i received same amount of dividends for the last 4 months i will be  9.7K.  

Hope Everyone had a good August.
