October Dividend Income

 One more month is completed and we are less than 2 months from New Year. This month I received  over $400 in dividends.I have been slowly building position in MO.

Compared  to 2019 October it is up by 26%.Even with dividend Cuts in few companies.


2020 Goal: I had a goal of 11K in dividends for 2020 and  so far I am at 62% of the goal. If  I receive similar income as last for the last 2 months I will be at 10k. It will be interesting to see.

How did you guys do.

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

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

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.
