October 2015 Dividends


Hopefully this will be the last month were not much has happened.  Just sitting back (not really, been raking leaves) and collecting income.    Another purchase I should not have made presented itself to me.  CRWS I noticed hasn't raised its dividend in years.  If only I could go back in time before I knew what to look at for a good purchase and change those decisions.  You live and you learn so going forward these won't happen again.  Until they cut the dividend I will just keep collecting it.

My YOY dividend income took a dive again.  Same as last month regarding my selling of some bad investments.  I have since taken that money and invested it in dividend growth stocks.  Those purchases I still need to write about.  As the year gets closer to ending I do believe I will still pull in my dividends than last year.  That does give me hope and the drive to keep saving and investing.



Any cuts for you this month?



Happy dividend collecting,

  1. Almost $140 you didnt have to work for is still a good month DFG. The income might have gone down this month but looking forward, these dividends will only continue to grow especially since you are selling some investments and picking DG stocks instead.

    Keep you head up and keep trucking

    1. Thanks ADD. What is left is mostly dividend growth stocks in my portfolio. So like you said they will keep on growing.

  2. I took a look at CRWS and it doesn't appear to be a disaster. It has nearly a four percent yield so at least holding its own for a 4%SWR. I got killed this year on some exploration MLPs that slashed distributions with the decline in oil and gas prices. Sure and steady would have suited me just fine!

    1. Yeah diversification helps ease those blows. I will feel more comfortable when I get 50 or so good companies in my portfolio to weather the energy dip.
