October is done! I hope your autumn is going well for you and Halloween came with more treats than tricks. Here in the Pacific Northwest, the past couple weeks have been dry and cold. But it’s expected to warm up a little and the rain will return. In October I took a little trip to Anchorage (my first visit to Alaska!) to visit in-laws that moved there last February. As for the stock market, it’s been slowly climbing upwards since the end of September. Despite the talk of recession and the tech sector’s recent spasm of layoffs, the market seems to be exhibiting some cautious optimism.
Well, let’s do the numbers and see how my dividend income performed for October…
ARR $ 2.00
* Includes Return of Capital
$582.96 is pretty good for the quarter’s first month! It’s not quite at $600+ like it used to be, but still it’s not bad.
Fortunately October didn’t see any dividend cuts, but I know they’re coming soon.
Again, because I needed the cash, I sold off more stocks. I first sold off 10 shares of HQL at $14.22 per share, then later I sold off 50 shares of HQL at $14.00 per share.
Overall, October saw a $582.96 treat and no tricks, so it was a better than average month.
