Dividend Income Report for February 2016

july_monthly_report_600x200
And so ends February. Here in the great Pacific Northwest, February saw a modest warming and some trees and foliage have started to bloom already. But this February “false spring” will certainly followed by a cold and rainy March. Of course March also means tax season is in full swing, so I need to get my tax documents collected, and make an appointment with my tax dude.

Well, this post is about February’s total dividend payouts, so let’s do the numbers and see how I did:

AWP $ 3.50*
BGY $ 49.00*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.00*
CLM $ 54.19*
DHY $ 42.00
DMF $ 13.50
DSM $ 22.83
EDF $ 13.50
EHI $ 35.61
EXG $121.95*
FGB $105.00
HHY $ 37.50
HTR $ 38.00
NCV $ 45.50
OIA $ 4.10
PFN $ 36.00
VFL $ 18.00
TOTAL $683.18

$683.18 for the month? Hmmm, not bad. Not bad at all. This ranks as my third best month ever of dividend investing. I must say, the past three months have been pretty damn good, with December setting a record high of $747.83, January coming in second at $737.38, and now February third at $683.18. Despite the current market volatility and dip in my portfolio’s value, my monthly dividend income just keeps rolling in like clockwork every month and quarter. I’m happy to report that no new dividend cuts occurred in February, so everything came in as expected. I love the (mostly) predictable nature of dividend stocks!

Having three really good months in a row isn’t enough to make a trend, and I know this nice run I’ve had for the past three months won’t last forever. Eventually I will have a so-so (or worse) month for dividends, but I’m okay with that because I know I didn’t trade my time for that income.

    This is great dividend income, with this income I can pay my alimony withno worry that I will lose my day job.

    Keep the snowball rolling

      Thanks for visiting Sharon! While alimony is an expense I hope I never have to pay, I do have a minimum monthly mortgage that’s my main yardstick for measuring my dividend income progress. Housing is, by far, one’s biggest monthly expense and if I can grow my dividend income to meet and exceed my mortgage expense then that will put me in very good financial position indeed.

    First time site visitor. Your February dividend income is quite impressive. Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks for visiting and the kind words IH! I’ve been doing this dividend investing thing for nearly 8 years now and it’s good to finally be making non-trivial dividend income every month. Compounding growth is nice, but it takes some time to get up to speed. However, once you have enough momentum, that snowball really starts to move!
