All right, so the total this September was $264.34. This means 29,5% increase year-over-year. Generally speaking I would like to see at least 20% growth every month, so this was clearly above that target. Excluding April months this was a new record.
Good progress at CU.TO and UNA.AS thanks to dividend raises and additional shares bought. Unilever was also the biggest payer, while iconic dividend growth company JNJ came in second. Here are my dividends in a graph:
I stayed on the buying front through September. I added to my existing positions at AQN.TO, BNS.TO, LEG, MDT, T, WPC and UNA.AS. And there is one newcomer too: AbbVie Inc (ABBV). My Portfolio page has been updated to reflect these trades.
Please note that I don't make any currency conversions here. I report dividends as they appear in their own currency. This time CU.TO and ENB.TO were paid in CAD, UNA.AS in EUR, and the rest in USD. Additionally all numbers are before taxes. This prevents currency fluctuations and tax hassles from affecting my progress.
Thanks for reading. Dividend Income page has been updated to include September dividends.
