November 2016 Dividend Income

Dividends November 2016

November was an incredible month for dividend raises. The Dividend Beginner portfolio registered FIVE dividend raises from various companies. This is one of those months where the methodology is really paying off and showing something. As the positions get bigger, so will the result of the raises.

In addition to that, a few more positions continued to be dropped from the portfolio as I eased up in some areas to further concentrate in others in the coming year. My portfolio is now down to 21 positions which I would enjoy investing in further given the right conditions. I would like to further rearrange my real estate exposure, but that’s in the future.

Dividend Income Journey

November Dividends

The dividend income came back down to Earth for my portfolio in November. Even without deploying cash this month, my dividends came through for me without a single issue. As we continue to push the baseline for dividend income, I reckon the lows and highs of this chart will look very different in 2017.

Year-over-year Dividend Income Growth

YoY November Dividends

November 2016’s dividend income growth looks very similar to comparable months in the chart (i.e. August, May). There’s no stop in sight for a long time as the investments pile up and continue to grow the passive cash flow.

In November 2015, I received $45.59 and one year later my stocks have generated $165.59 in passive income. This year’s November income increased by $120, or 165.59% over last year’s.

Total Dividends 2016

Within 11 months of 2016, the Dividend Beginner portfolio has generated $1,691.64.

This income works out to 96.7% of my 2016 goal of generating $1,750 in passive dividend income. There’s about a 99.99% chance that this goal will be achieved by the end of December, barring an apocalyptic event.

I’d like to keep track of my lifetime dividends as it will always be the largest number I can attribute to dividend income, and ultimately is all the passive income I’ve generated from the beginning of this portfolio to now. It’s a great chart to display exactly what you could accomplish when you save your earnings and invest in dividend growing stocks.

After 20 months of receiving dividends and 21 months of investing, I’ve generated above $2,000 in passive income. After November 2016, my record is now $2,235.08 in dividend income that I earned from having the foresight to invest my money in income generating assets. The great thing about this is that even if I stop investing now, that money will continue to flow into my bank account every month without me lifting a finger, and what’s more is that it will even grow as time goes on considering I took the time to invest in dividend growing companies with proven track records.

How was all of my fellow investors’ November 2016? Any new positions? Dividend Raises?

  1. Ciao DB!
    Great month and summary, I’d say that the beginner bit of your name can be left off from now on! It’s a shame that I cannot buy Canadian stocks (well, I can buy them but I’d have to take on another currency and that’s just not going to happen), there are several interesting picks out there… 21 stocks is also a great small number to manage I really envy you because no matter what I do I do not seem able to close positions in my PF… Have a great 2017 and keep these great results up!
    Ciao ciao

  2. You are misnamed lol you should be called dividend apprentice at least. Good job looks like progress is moving right along. Can’t wait to see Dec.
