You are currently viewing Dividend Income Report for October 2017

October is now over and the holiday season is just around the corner! Overall October was a good month, as I *finally* finished my summer paver brick patio extension project and ended the month by pressure washing the driveway and sealing it (something I’ve been wanting/needing to do for a looong time). Yep, October was good.

So how was my dividend income for October? Did the month end with a trick or a treat? Let’s do the numbers and find out…

AWP $ 45.00
BGY $ 38.00*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.00*
CLM $ 46.52*
CODI $144.00
DHY $ 38.50
DMF $ 12.30
DSM $ 22.83
EAD $ 9.03
EDF $ 45.00*
EHI $ 26.60
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 $870.33

* Includes Return of Capital

Not bad! While October’s $870.33 didn’t set a new record high for me, pulling down nearly $900 in passive dividend income is certainly sweet. The quarterly payouts from CODI and PNNT also served to give the month a nice boost.

October was not without a couple dividend cuts. EAD reduced its monthly dividend from 5.98 cents to 5.641 cents, a 5.7% cut. EHI trimmed its monthly dividend from 6.75 cents to 6.65 cents, a 1.5% cut. Overall, these dividend cuts are both barely perceptible nicks that amount to a total hit of -$0.94 to my monthly dividend income. Not exactly something for me to lose sleep over. 🙂

Other than the month’s total income and the two div cuts, there’s not much to really say. Regarding this site, there may be some cosmetic and design changes coming before the year’s end, as I’m considering updating the site’s theme (Graphene for WordPress) and tweaking some graphic elements of the site. After going essentially unchanged for over three years, the site is due for a makeover. Speaking of this site, in early October I was contacted by and was told that Dividend Quest was included in their Top 100 Dividend Blogs And Websites For Dividend Investors list. Dividend Quest ranked #40, so that’s not too bad.

How was your October?

    Wow! Nearly $900! Great job Dividend Quest! October was my “off” month, but it was still exciting nonetheless. Looking forward to following your journey. Keep up the good work! 🙂

      Thanks for visiting MDD! We all have our “off” months (March, June, September, and December seem to be my mine), which is why it’s nice to have some monthly dividend paying stocks in one’s portfolio to help smooth the ride a bit.. Keep up the work and keep up those dividends rolling in!

  2. Investment Hunting

    No record, but I’ll take $900 a month anytime. Great work DQ.

      Thanks for visiting IH! Yep, I’ve never met a dividend payout I didn’t like, and I’ll take a passively earned dollar any time!

    Who cares if it wasn’t a record. That is still one hell of a month Dividend Quest. Man those results are inspiring to see. It sucks you had a few cuts, but it is great to see your portfolio moving in the right direction regardless of those cuts.

    Take care,
