Dividend Income Report: June 2018

So ends June and the first half of 2018. How was your June? Mine was good. Being the end of the school year, we attended three graduation ceremonies for friends and family. Other than that, there’s really not much of note that happened in June. Other than a day trip with the in-laws to Astoria and Seaside in Oregon, I didn’t go anywhere.

But there is the matter of June’s dividend income total, so let’s do the numbers and see how the month’s total shaped up:

AWP $ 50.00
BGY $ 38.00*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.00*
CLM $ 47.30
DHY $ 35.00
DMF $ 10.50
DSM $ 19.25
EAD $ 8.32
EDF $ 45.00*
EHI $ 24.40
EXG $114.00*
HQL $ 70.00
?? $ 1.25**
NCV $ 45.50
OIA $ 4.30
PFN $ 36.00
RA $ 69.85
VFL $ 15.00
ZTR $ 33.90
TOTAL $710.57

* Includes Return of Capital
** My employer’s stock, which shall remain anonymous.

Nice total! For my dividend portfolio, every quarter’s third month has been the lowest payout total for me, and this month was a bit better than March due to my May buy of 75 HQL shares which nudged it up $30. I hope this month is also when I can finally move past the $600s for good, just as I’ve moved past the $500s after 2015. Slow but steady growth indeed.

June’s end also marks the end of the year’s 2nd quarter. Total dividend income for the quarter is $2648.76, which is an 11.77% increase over Q2 2017’s $2369.74. Not bad! I expect Q3 and Q4 2018 won’t be so good compared to 2017’s Q3 and Q4, as I suspended my matching program last July, so quarterly growth will certainly decline.

June didn’t see any dividend cuts so that’s good too. I *hate* dividend cuts. 😛

Overall, June 2018 was a solid month with no unpleasant surprises. And that’s the way I like it.
