Dividend Income Report for April 2017

Goodbye April, hello May! Here in the Pacific Northwest, there was plenty of rainy days and nights, but there were also enough tantalizing warm sunny days to make me believe that winter is truly in the rearview mirror.

And with the start of the new month comes a look at how my dividend income added up for the previous month. So without delay, let’s do the numbers for April:

AWP $ 45.00
BGY $ 38.00*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.00*
CLM $ 44.43*
CODI $108.00
DHY $ 38.50
DMF $ 12.30
DSM $ 22.83
EAD $ 9.57
EDF $ 45.00*
EHI $ 30.00
EXG $114.00*
NCV $ 45.50
OIA $ 4.30
PFN $ 36.00
PNNT $ 81.00
RA $ 69.85
VFL $ 15.00
ZTR $ 33.90
TOTAL $836.18

* Includes Return of Capital

Awesome! April’s $836.18 makes it my second $800+ month for the year and a record setting month (the previous record holder was October’s $830.50). Dividend income is slowly but steadily improving despite the frequent dividend cuts. .

And speaking of dividend cuts, this month’s newest cut (jeez, it has become so common that I mention it every month now…) is by DHY, which gave its dividend a slight trim from 2.3 cents per share to 2.2 cents (a modest 4.3% cut). A slight nick.

Overall, April was a great month. I’m not sure if I will have a $900+ month this year, but as long as I stay the course and keep growing my portfolio, then it may happen.
