Dividend Income Report: July 2022

I hope you had a good Independence Day last month. I spent the holiday with my in-laws and had a good time. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we were hit with a hit wave, experiencing 100°+ temperatures but fortunately it didn’t last very long. Regarding the stock market, it continued its volatility streak, but there does seem to be an upward trend, so the window for “locking in” some great dividend yields may be beginning to close.

Let’s do the numbers and see how my dividend income fared in July:

ARR $ 2.00
AWP $44.00*
BGY $33.80*
CIK $22.50
CLM $72.32*
DHY $27.13
EDF $15.00*
EHI $26.80*
EXG $103.35
NCV $29.75*
PFN $32.31
PNNT $145.00
ZTR $24.00*
TOTAL $577.96

* Includes Return of Capital

$577.96? Eh, I’ve seen better July totals in the past, but for July 2022, it’s acceptable.

Again, because I needed the cash, in July I sold off 45 shares of HQL at $14.75/share and later sold 40 shares of HQL at $14.8335/share. Fortunately there weren’t any dividend cuts in July, so I’m happy to report that.

Given my portfolio, the middle month of the quarter usually pays the least, so overall July didn’t surprise me with its dividend total. I look forward to August’s total, as it should be better.
