November is over! Let's see how many companies sent me a dividend check for my ownership. These checks are the results of decisions I made earlier in life, sometimes years ago, where I decided to purchase shares in these companies. Nowaydays I still collect these checks but I have to do absolutely nothing to receive them. They just get deposited in my brokerage account, no questions asked. Isn't that great?!
A total of almost € 170. Seven companies paid me dividends. The dividend income almost doubled compared to last year. Deere's dividend grew nicely at the back of two monster increases this year. Also It was also my first November payment for me relatively new position of BMY. However, most of the growth in income is attributed to two spin-offs I recevved last month. The first is Kyndryl which is a spin-off from IBM. I received 1 share of the new company and some cash. The second was Orion Office REIT. The move comes as part of Realty Income's merger with VEREIT, Inc. and its plan of the subsequent spin-off of all the office assets from Realty Income and VEREIT into a new independent publicly traded REIT. I received two shares and some cash.
In the graph below I showed my cumulative dividend income till the end of November. Only 1 month to go in this year!
So far I am about 65% ahead compared to the dividend I received last year at this time in the year. Currently my annual dividend income is around € 2.910.
How was your November? What is your watchlist?
