November is done! The big story to end this month is oil prices, and the tumble it has taken over these last few days is just spectacular. Lots of energy companies on sale! Anyways, lets get back to real tangible things in this world and that my friends are dividends. Love them, need them, can not live without them! The portfolio that I have build up these last few years have brought another fruitful month. I enjoy publishing these dividend income reports as I have gained a better understanding of how much of passive income is coming in every month and how much it is growing over time. I have received a total of 9 direct deposits for the month of November. When compared dividend income to last years total in November 2013, it presents a 36.1% year over year growth. The comparison from last quarter is 3.9% quarter over quarter increased growth.
Just recently I have created a goals page to keep myself accountable and committed to dividend growth investments. This November’s dividend income has accomplished my goal of earning $2,000 in dividends!
This is also my biggest monthly dividend payout ever.
Another big news is that I will be purchasing a property pretty soon, so I have major surprises and a bit of revamping of my investing portfolio to do. The main reason behind that is to liquidate some funds in order to accumulate a substantial downpayment on a property. I will be discussing the recent sales of company ownerships I have made in a very near future. Also, if everything goes well with the closing, I will be discussing the details and the breakdown of the loan and a grant I received and for the property itself. Pretty exiting things ahead, hope to keep you guys well informed.
