The year 2019 has come to an end. This means we can draw up the balance. I think 2019 will turn out to be a year in which the snowball effect of compounding really took shape. But there are still two months of dividend income to report about on my blog: November and December. Let’s start with November. December will follow shortly.
Income numbers November
For this month my total amount of dividend income was $353.43. This is the highest amount of monthly dividend income so far. It seems we’re already heading towards a quarterly dividend of $400, after crushing the number of $300 only recently in August. We are steaming up!
Three companies paid me more than last quarter as a consequence of a raise or larger position. Here’s the breakdown:
Apple (AAPL) – $16.94
Abbvie (ABBV) – $64.20
CVS Caremark (CVS) – $17.00
Delta Air Lines (DAL) – $9.26
Realty Income (O) – $3.86
Omega Healthcare (OHI) – $67.00
Starbucks (SBUX) – $19.27
Tanger Factory Outlets (SKT) – $62.13
AT&T (T) – $85.68
Texas Instruments (TXN) – $8.10
This makes the total amount of dividend income for this month a nice $353.43. My dividend income in August 2019 was $331.12 so that’s an increase of 7% QoQ. My passive income for November 2018 was $230.73 so that’s a very welcome 53% YoY growth. This means another high double-digit growth number, I love it! You can see that four companies contribute a very large part to my dividend income. It’s clear I have to diversify more than I used to do: more companies and a more equal distribution. This will be one of my goals for 2020. Here is the graph that shows all monthly dividends YTD as compared to last year:
Transactions during November
I didn’t buy any stocks in November, because I wanted some extra money to invest with towards the end of 2019.
I earned $2,770.27 in dividend income YTD, which means I surpassed the FY 2018 dividend income of $1,793.09 with almost $1,000.
Thanks for for your time.
