Dividend Income - October 2019

All right, here we go again, another month in the books. Let's see how I did during the first month of the last quarter. But first, let's take a look one year back. In October 2018 I was able to collect $292.27 in the form of dividends. All those payers still remain in my portfolio. Additionally, I have one new payer compared to last year: Illinois Tool Works Inc. (ITW). So, the starting point looks pretty good here. In total 17 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of October 2018 and 2019 dividends:

Dividend Income - September 2019

All right, three quarters of four finished in 2019. Let's see how I did during the last month of third quarter. But first, let's take a look one year back. In September 2018 I managed to collect $264.34 in the form of dividends. All those payers still remain in my portfolio. No new dividend payers either, so it looks like my portfolio has really settled down here. Once again, looking for a good growth compared to last year. In total 16 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of September 2018 and 2019 dividends:

Dividend Income - August 2019

And here we are August 2019 is finished and wrapped in a neat little package, so it's time to see how it went. But first, let's take a look one year back. In August 2018 I was able to collect $219.53 in the form of dividends. All those payers still remain in my portfolio. Plus I have three new payers compared to last year. AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) and General Dynamics Corp. (GD) are newcomers in my portfolio, while Nokia (NOKIA.HE) changed their payment schedule. So, I was definitely expecting to see nice growth here. In total 16 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of August 2018 and 2019 dividends:

All right, the hot month of July  2019 is in the books, so it's time to see how it went. But first let's see what happened one year ago. In July 2018 I was able to collect $208.83. Nicely beating 200 there, but now I'm definitely aiming higher. All payers from last year still remain in my portfolio. Plus I have one newcomer in the form of Illinois Tool Works Inc. (ITW). So, the starting point looking pretty good here. In total 16 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of July 2018 and 2019 dividends:

Dividend Income - June 2019

And we are over halfway through the year 2019! Amazing, but let's take a look where my dividend income stood one year back. In June 2018 I was able to collect $260.40. All those payers still remain in my portfolio. On the other end there is one new payer in the form of Nokia (NOKIA.HE). It's not exactly a newcomer in my portfolio, but thanks to their payment schedule change they popped up on the list now. Well, all in all, there was a good starting point for June 2019 dividend income. In total 17 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of June 2018 and 2019 dividends:

Dividend Income - May 2019

All right, the month of May is in the books and June is well underway. Not long till we are halfway through the year! Amazing, but now let's take a look back. Last year in May I was able to collect $209.45 in  the form of dividends. All those payers still remain in my portfolio. Plus I have two new payers compared to last year. AbbVie Inc. (ABBV) is a newcomer in my portfolio, while Metso (METSO.HE) changed their payment schedule. So, I was definitely expecting to see nice growth here. In total 15 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of May 2018 and 2019 dividends:

Dividend Income - April 2019

All right, the month of April is over and it's time to tally up those sweet dividends. In previous years I included all my annual Nordic dividends in this report, no matter what month they actually arrive in my bank account. Well, this year many Nordic companies have changed their payment schedules. Additionally, two of my companies (Metso and Nokia) moved away from annual dividends. As a result of all this, I now report only the actual dividends I received during the month of April.

Last year in April I managed to collect $1,371.69. I have two new payers (LEG and ITW) compared to last year. On the other end Metso's and Nokia's payments are transferred to future months. So that's going to hurt a little bit right now. In total 22 companies paid dividend to me this month. Here is the comparison table of April 2018 and 2019 dividends:
