October is officially over and what an interesting month it has been. The volatility in the market has been in full swings as there was a really nice drop for a few holdings I was watching at the end of October. I kind of missed the boat on the first dip in September, but definitely took advantage on the second one. I ended up grabbing some shares of a few different companies. More on that to come soon, as it has been a very busy month for acquisitions.
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 October, I have received a total of 7 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Also, with the market getting back up I removed DRIP options for the majority of holdings, except for a few stagnant performers such as RDS.B and MAT. I will be deploying the funds manually from here on out as I find better deals than automatic reinvestment process. Anyways, here is the cash from the previous month.
- Baxalta, Inc. (BXLT) – $1.61
- Baxter International, Inc. (BAX) – $2.65
- Coca Cola Co. (KO) – $9.24
- Reynolds American, Inc. (RAI) – $5.76
- Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) – $8.87
- Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) – $56.29
- Realty Income Corp. (O) – $9.10
Total – $93.52
When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from October 2014 to October 2015, it represents a negative 26.8% for a year over year decreased growth. The growth difference from last quarter is negative .8% quarter over quarter decreased growth.
Goal: With 10 months behind, I am 71.9% of my goal complete.
The dividend income page is updated accordingly.
