All right, so the total this October was $360.08. This means 23,2% increase year-over-year. My target is to register at least 25% growth every month (except April months). I didn't quite reach the target this month, and that's mostly because of one of my Nordic investments, Telia Company. They have a big impact on October results since they pay semi-annual dividend, and the other half is paid in October. Still, receiving over 350 for the month is a nice chunk of money.
Good progress at LEG thanks to dividend raise and additional shares bought. And of course ITW as a new payer compared to last year. Excluding Telia, LEG was the biggest payer too, just ahead of BNS.TO, KMB and WPC. Here are my dividends in a graph:
Total dividends during months 1-10 this year: $4,182.59. This is 19,7% increase from last year. My goal for this year: $5,000. This would mean 24,1% increase to 2018's income. Well, only two months to go, and it looks like I'm not quite going to make it. I need a miracle at this point, haha!
Please note that I don't make any currency conversions here. I report dividends as they appear in their own currency. This time BNS.TO and RCI.B.TO were paid in CAD. TELIA.HE 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 October dividends.
