October 2016 Dividends

It was not a very active month from the new portfolio.  A grand total of $10.82 of cash was deposited into my accounts.  I will probably leave it there and take the dividends from next month together with this month to make my next purchase based on probably my December top 10

I think I need to buy some more Coke to help even out these months.  Not much to say here as I am saving most of my life changes for my monthly income/expense/whatever else is going on in my life post.


With that I will leave you with a picture of my kids and my pumpkins.  Try and guess which one is mine.  Happy late Halloween everyone!

  2. Dividend income large and small is income nonetheless that was generated passively. Happy to be a fellow shareholder with you in KO and GE and your pumpkin is on the left :)

  3. Hi DFG,
    Good to see the new portfolio is working for you around the clock.

    October's one of my lowest months too. That said, I would caution on trying to smooth out dividend income based on payment calendar as a primary factor; company fundamentals should be more important. Unequal monthly dividend payments can always be smoothed out with a cash buffer.

    Best wishes,

    1. Good wisdom DL. Yeah your right you should have a good year buffer when you go to retire.

  4. October is a slow month for dividend payments for me as well. Plus I love that you own KO and GE. Nice buys :)

  6. Thanks for updating us on your situation. Even though dividends can be small, they are a unique performance stock. Happy belated Halloween.
