November 2016 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeNovember is officially done and gone and it is that time once again to tally up all of them dollars that were sent by the greatest companies around the world. It is the beautiful thing of being a shareholder and part owner in these amazing businesses that continuously grow and redistribute the profits to the part owners all around the country and the world. Obviously I am doing it still on a small scale, but I can truly imagine what it truly could be over time. The strategy is simple and even sometimes boring how simple, thought the commitment and dedication over time is the hard part. I foresee myself doing this for many more years, because life is all about sowing new seeds, watching them grow and then planting new ones when future comes. Anyways, here are the dividends earned and possible inspiration.

I enjoy publishing these monthly dividend income reports as I have gained a much better understanding in how much of my passive income is coming in every month and how much it is growing over time. For the month of November, I have received a total of 9 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. The new one on the list is STAG, which will be providing monthly income from here on out.


 AT&T, Inc. (T) $51.26
 General Mills, Inc. (GIS) $22.02
 Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ) $24.26
 Apple, Inc. (AAPL) $22.58
 Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) $20.22
 Procter & Gamble Co. (PG) $27.05
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $9.80
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.21
 Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST) $5.85
 Total $188.25


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from November 2015 to November 2016, it represents a negative 16.8% for a year over year decreased dividend growth. As previously mentioned, the negative growth is primarily due to KMI reducing their divided shareholder payout when they were having debt/credit rating issues. The growth difference from last quarter is positive 3.5% for a quarter over quarter increased dividend growth.

I will DRIP the following upcoming month: BKE, COP, KMI, MAT, TROW & VIAB.

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

Thank you for reading & have a great day!

    Much appreciated and thanks for including me in the dividend income around the world round up! Great group of individuals right there.

    Congrats on a great month even with the YoY impact of $KMI. I was burned by $COP earlier in the year and its had the same impact on my portfolio this year. Im will be including your updated moving forward as part of my monthly passive income round up.

    As usual, a nice sum even though it represents a decrease from last year. Just goes to show that having a diversified portfolio will ensure that dividends, high and low, will still continue to roll in. It’s all about mitigating those dividend cuts that happen to all of us from time to time. Just part of the DGI game. I’m still looking at STAG too. Thanks for sharing.

      Absolutely, uncertainties happen when you are in the game of investing. Though diversification does minimize the collateral damage that could entail when you are heavy in one security. Even though the dividend cut happened due to one of the worst market oil crashes I been a part of, the ending result is not that bad, plus great lessons to be had and learned there.

      I am digging STAG so far, love that monthly payout, I will be looking forward to dollar cost average if opportunity presents.

      Good hearing from you!

    Your quarter is still good and next year you will return to positive for the month. Those cuts stink. But hopefully it will return as the outlook for oil and gas looks good
    Can’t wait to see December dividends

      As much as I would like to deliver positive quarterly and annual growth each and every time, it is not reasonable goal because things happen in stock market such as in life. In longterm perspective, the portfolio dividend income will ultimately go higher and higher, but it does take time to learn and avoid unforeseeable events that test company’s dividend strength.

      December will be biggest month ever!

      Thanks for stopping by.
