Dividend Income Report: February 2019

Thus ends February. Here in the Pacific Northwest, the weather has been quite cold (and expected to get colder heading as March unfolds) and we’ve had a bit of snowfall west of the Cascades. Winter isn’t over yet, and it’s going to throw a final punch or two before transitioning into spring. As for my dividend investing portfolio, following the tumultuous December and January’s recovery, February was a bland month as my portfolio’s value didn’t change all that much. I think it will be some time before it regains its 2018 high point.

So how was my dividend income for February? Let’s do the numbers and find out!

AWP $ 55.00
BGY $ 33.80
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.50*
CLM $ 41.06*
DHY $ 33.25
DMF $ 10.50
DSM $ 19.25
EAD $ 9.63
EDF $ 45.00*
EHI $ 24.40
EXG $ 92.40*
FGB $148.75
NCV $ 45.50
OHI $148.50
OIA $ 4.10
PFN $ 36.00
RA $ 69.85
VFL $ 15.00
ZTR $ 33.90
TOTAL $909.44 est.

* Includes Return of Capital

Nice! While not as awesome as last month’s record breaker, $909.44 makes February a solid month.

Despite being a good month, the pain of the dividend cuts mentioned last month is being felt, as February’s dividend total could have been better. And as expected at the start of the new year, the dividend cuts just keep coming. HQL announced a dividend cut, reducing its dividend from 42 cents per share to 33 cents (a -21.4% reduction, or -$5.25 per month for me). The only good thing is that HQL has a somewhat erratic dividend, so there’s a good chance it may go up in the near future.

Other than the above, there’s not much else to report. February dividends were quite good, but I have my concerns about March as the last month of each quarter is always my worst performing month.
