I am a bit behind with my updates on dividend raises I received in the last few weeks (or months?!). However I did receive some nice raises.
- On August 25 Deere (DE) declared an increased quarterly dividend of $1.05 per share.
- On September 15 PM increased the company's regular quarterly dividend by 4.2% to an annualized rate of $5.00 per share. The new quarterly dividend is $1.25 per share, up from $1.20 per share.
- On October 29 Exxon Mobil (XOM) declared a quarterly dividend of 88 cents a share, up by a penny or about 1%.
- On November 16 Realty Income announced an increase in the company's common stock monthly cash dividend to $0.246 per share from $0.236 per share.

A total of just under € 70. Six companies paid me dividends. The dividend income increased by just over 60% compared to last year. Most of the increase was due to my new position in Merck. I purchased share earlier in June and August.
So far I am about 60% ahead compared to the dividend I received last year at this time in the year. Currently my annual dividend income is around € 2.510.
The market has had a nice run-up last month. Biggest contributor in my portfolio is UNP with an increase of almost 20% last month. Various companies increased by about 10% (TROW, BEP, WMT, O, MRK). Worst performers are IBM (-13%) and INTC (-9%). We'll see what happens in the markets in the coming weeks!
How was your October? What is your watchlist?
