Dividend Income Report for February 2016

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.
