September Dividends

Its been a relatively quiet month for me in terms of investing. I doubled my Roth IRA contributions. But have been relatively silent in terms of individual buys. In fact this was the first month as a DGI that I didn't make a purchase. I did still make my normal deposits into my account. That said, September was very busy for me in terms of actual dividends.  A record $27.18. Lets put that in perspective last year I earned 6.63 in September. This year's dividends more than quadrupled that. So much motivation. What's even nicer is that by not rushing to make a September purchase, I'm in position to make a larger one if I see something I want to pounce on. Below is my dividend rundown.

WFC     0.78
UL        0.83
DFS      1.75
ADM    0.32
AMGN 1.15
TGT     6.20
EMR    2.40
JNJ       0.84
CMP    3.60
O          1.06
FLO     1.70
DUK    3.56
GM      1.14
BAC    0.24
PEP     1.61


  1. Wow. Now, that's a lot of companies paying you dividends Seedling. I posted very similar numbers as I earned $28.72 in dividend income in September. Looking forward to seeing what October has in store for you.

    Thanks for the encouragement. It's been people like you that have really been so willing to share their process that has helped me make this jump into dividend investing. The snow ball has been amazing. I'm definitely hooked for the long term.

  7. Good start DS. Growth and direction is important. Keeping adding more money and see your dividends grow. It might be tempting, but do not chase yield :-)

    1. Thanks for the advice dividendGeek. Like many new investors I got to learn that lesson the hard way. Last year I initiated a small position in Frontier Communications. At least it was a low stakes investment.
