Dividend Income - October 2017

All right, here we are again, another month in the books. Let's see how I did during the first month of the last quarter. But first, let's take a look one year back. In October 2016 I was able to collect $223.98. Once again, trying to improve from there. All companies paying in Oct 2016 were still paying in 2017, plus Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB) as a new payer. So, very little changes during the year which is good. Well, changes have been made after October dividends, but they will be visible only in January report. In total 16 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of October 2016 and 2017 dividends:

4 Recent Buys - AMGN, HRL, KMB, PPL & 1 Sale - GE

As you probably know there has been a lot of talk about General Electric (GE) possibly cutting its dividend soon. So, I have been pondering what to do with my shares. On Monday this week I closed out my position in the company. I returned the capital back to markets by increasing my position at Amgen Inc (AMGN), Hormel Foods Corporation (HRL), Kimberly-Clark Corporation (KMB) and PPL Corporation. And here are the details...

6 Recent Buys - ADM, CU, EMA, ENB, JNJ, PPL

Let's see what I have been buying in late October and in the beginning of November. Well, there is a newcomer in my portfolio: PPL Corporation (PPL). Couple weeks ago I closed my position at Agrium inc (AGU.TO), and now PPL kind of fills the gap with Jan/Apr/Jul/Oct payment schedule. Other purchases add to my existing positions at Archer-Daniels-Midland Co. (ADM), Canadian Utilities Ltd. (CU.TO), Emera Inc. (EMA.TO), Enbridge Inc. (ENB.TO) and Johnson & Johnson (JNJ).

Dividend Income - September 2017

All right, three quarters of four finished in 2017. Let's see how I did during the last month of third quarter. But first, let's take a look one year back. In September 2016 I was able to collect $160.23. Once again, trying to improve from there. Since then only one company, Norfolk Southern Corporation (NSC), has left my portfolio. No new dividend payers, so very few changes compared to last year which is good in my book. Wishing to crack sweet $200 mark, let's see if I was able to do that. In total 16 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of September 2016 and 2017 dividends:
