You are currently viewing Dividend Income Report: June 2019

Well, June 2019 is over and done. Overall, it was a good month. My wife and I took a somewhat leisurely trip to Spokane and visited some friends of hers there, plus we did some touristy stuff along the way such as visiting the Maryhill Museum, Stonehenge Memorial, and Soap Lake. So how did I do for dividend income in June? Let’s add up the numbers and see:

AWP $ 55.00
BGY $ 33.80*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.50*
CLM $ 41.06
DHY $ 33.25
DMF $ 7.53
DSM $ 19.25
EAD $ 9.46
EDF $ 45.00*
EHI $ 24.80
EXG $ 92.40*
HQL $ 64.75
NCV $ 36.75
PFN $ 36.00
RA $ 69.85
USA $ 46.75
ZTR $ 33.90
TOTAL $693.05

* Includes Return of Capital

Not. Again. Just a few dollars short of the next $100 increment. Just like May ($896.78) and April ($993.31). Ugh! I know I shouldn’t complain about $693.05 (which is nice), but it’s still aggravating. <sigh>

The only dividend cut in June was EAD cutting its dividend from 5.92 cents per share to 5.91 cents. That’s a *very* tiny dividend cut of 1.6 cents from my monthly EAD dividend. I think I can live with that.

June also marks the end of 2019’s second quarter. So how was Q2 2019 versus Q2 2018? My Q2 2018 dividend income was $2648.76 and Q2 2019’s dividend income total was $2583.14. Uh-oh! A -2.48% decline is NOT good. The pain from those dividend cuts is certainly being felt.

Overall, June was a good, but unremarkable month. The stock trades I made in June should serve to help improve future dividend income and offset some of the dividend cuts from earlier this year. I also hope to get past this annoying “just short of the next $100 increment” problem that plagued me in Q2.
