The Thanksgiving dinner has been devoured and Black Friday madness is in the rear-view mirror. Having a source of income that doesn’t require trading my time for is something I’m particularly thankful for having. The fact that this modest financial cushion has grown nicely so far this year only deepens my appreciation.
With November in the books, how was my dividend income for the month? Let’s do the numbers.
BGY $ 56.00*
CFP $ 77.30*
CIK $ 22.00*
DHY $ 42.00*
DMF $ 10.50
DSM $ 26.13
HTR $ 28.50*
NCV $ 63.00
OIA $ 4.10
PFN $ 30.00
VFL $ 10.08
* Includes Return of Capital.
Overall, November was a pretty good month. It’s nice to see that my regular monthly dividend payouts are fast approaching the $500 mark (my projected average dividend income hit that milestone last August), and I will probably reach it within the first quarter of 2015.
For November, I added shares of VFL to my portfolio and sold half my shares of my employer’s stock. With these changes, my projected average monthly income is $524.09. Also changed is my projected average daily (24-hours) income of $17.23/day, average hourly income is 71.8 cents, and average minute income is 1.20 cents.
My dividend income tree just keeps slowly growing, producing slightly bigger fruit every month.
