Dividend Income - November 2016

It's time to publish the last dividend income report during 2016! Next report will see daylight in the first days of new year 2017. Last year in November I was able to collect $117.62. Back then I had high yielding Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI) and HCP Inc (HCP) bringing in over $30. In fact that was the very last dividend I received from KMI, since I terminated my position after their dividend cut. Either HCP no longer exists in my portfolio, so I had some serious patching to do. But luckily I can state that I managed to increase my income from last year. In total 12 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of November 2015 and 2016 dividends:

5 Recent Buys - AQN, ES, MDT, WPC, XEL

All right, here we go again. Change of month usually means more active times for me on the buying front. Going from November till December was no exception. I have bought more shares in Algonquin Power & Utilities (AQN.TO), Eversource Energy (ES), Medtronic plc (MDT), W.P. Carey (WPC) and Xcel Energy (XEL).

2 Recent Buys - KO, UNA

More than a week after the unexpected elections in the US the market in general keeps climbing higher. S&P 500 index for example is practically at ATH (all time high) level. It's impossible to buy anything in these conditions right? Well, not quite so I think. I have made two small additional purchases to my existing positions in The Coca-Cola Company (KO) and Unilever N.V. (UNA.AS).

4 Recent Buys - JNJ, O, ORI, XEL

So, Mr. Trump won the presidential election in the US, if you didn't know yet, hah! Frankly speaking I thought that Clinton will win. And then the second surprise for me was that Trump's victory very quickly turned into a stock market rally. It's a good thing that I didn't make big moves based on what I thought will happen. No, that's not my kind of strategy. I just keep buying more shares and grow my passive income stream. I have added to my existing positions in        Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Realty Income (O), Old Republic International (ORI) and Xcel Energy (XEL).

Dividend Income - October 2016

Time to summarize again! I must say that I'm rather excited to write down the dividend income from October. Yes, I finally received the second half of Telia Company payment, which means that all Nordic dividends this year are now in.

Last year in October I managed to collect $92.30. At the time I had high yielding Biomed Realty Trust (BMR) bringing in $9.10 and low yielding Baxalta (BXLT) bringing $1.40. These are no longer in my portfolio, but luckily patching up these holes was not really a problem. In total 15 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of October 2015 and 2016 dividends:

Well, like you can see in the headline, beginning of November has been a busy one in Div Lord's portfolio. Not surprisingly I have added more shares to several positions, but the big news is that I have also sold one position: Norfolk Southern Corporation (NSC). On the buying front I was active in the following securities: Canadian Utilities (CU.TO), Enbridge Inc (ENB.TO), Amgen Inc (AMGN), CVS Health Corporation (CVS), Gilead Sciences Inc (GILD), 3M Company (MMM) and Target Corporation (TGT).
