Dividend Income Report: September 2018


Bye-bye September! It certainly was a busy month, with changes afoot for my career and my biggest vacation in 15 years. I can’t go into details about my work and career (that’s for a future post), but suffice it to say things have been put into motion that will be significant in the future (whether significantly good or significantly bad is to be determined). As for the vacation, I went to Kazakhstan (with a side trip to Kyrgystan) with my wife and father-in-law to visit family and friends. It was only a two-week trip, but it was packed (just like our checked luggage!). While I was gone, over $77.40 in dividends automatically rolled into my account. Now THAT is a small taste of a real paid vacation.

So how did September’s dividend income turn out? Let’s do the numbers and see…
BGY $ 38.00*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.50*
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
?? $ 1.40**
NCV $ 45.50
OIA $ 4.30
PFN $ 36.00
RA $ 69.85
VFL $ 15.00
ZTR $ 33.90
TOTAL $661.22

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

Well, this month’s total dividend income was a disappointment. Thanks to AWP’s missing payout, September’s dividend totaled less than $700. 🙁 One of the things I love about dividend income is how payouts arrive like clockwork, but sometimes an expected dividend payout never happens or is late.

While AWP didn’t pay a dividend this month, the next payout is scheduled for early October instead of the usual end of the month. Perhaps future AWP payouts will be near the start of each month instead of at the end? Only time will reveal what will happen.

Other than AWP’s missing payout resulting in a lower total for the month, September was uneventful with no dividend cuts, stock splits, or market declines so overall September was a good, but lackluster month.
