July 2015 Dividends

As I continue to save for expected healthcare costs not much has changed in the dividend area.  My goal was to save up $5500 dollars to cover my deductible.  I did this because I am still building my HSA (Health Savings Account) up since starting my new job in June.  At this time I am about $800 shy of this goal.  At the end of August I hope to have saved enough to get back in the investing game.

The only thing I should have caught was the automatic reinvestment of CSAL.  This and WIN have not been doing well since the split and while I had stopped the DRIP for WIN it was automatically enabled for CSAL.  This will be disabled as I do not want to purchase shares in companies who are not raising dividends and earnings.



Year over year it was a 21% decline in dividends.  This was do to the Windstream split to WIN and CSAL.  At this point I am still trying to determine what to do with the stocks.  I hope your month was an increase YOY and my goal is to get back to increases soon. 


Happy dividend collecting,

  1. Thanks for sharing your dividend income for July. I see we just have GE on common between our portfolios. Looking to see your adjustments going forward with WIN and CSAL to get your year over year growth back on track.
