It’s that time of the month again. That time many look forward to. It’s time to write about dividend income! February has passed and certainly not unnoticed. In January I realized a great growth in dividend income compared to January of last year and it seems that I can continue this into February. I love it when I see my dividend income growing. I know I’m still only beginning to realize a passive income stream and in absolute numbers its small, but when I look at the growth percentage I know this is going to lead somewhere.
Well, let’s have a look at the results of this month!
Dividend income of February
January was a great month and February even beats January although it’s only by a little. I have some great companies paying me this month. OHI pays me for the first time of, hopefully, many times in the future. The great dividend yield certainly helps a lot! Check it out in the table below.
|Omega Healthcare Investors||OHI||€ 19,11|
|Proctor & Gamble||PG||€ 7,41|
|Royal Bank of Canada||RY||€ 4,51|
|Abbott Laboratories||ABT||€ 4,86|
My dividend income for February 2016 was € 10,83 which results in a 231,4% increase compared to last year! It’s an even bigger increase as in January. I know, in the first years it’s much easier to reach high percentages then later in the journey, but still, I need the high percentages to grow and I really like them. I realized almost 3 times as much as in the same month in 2016!
This month Omega Healthcare Investors increased the dividend with 0,01 per quarter from $ 0,61 to $ 0,62 per quarter. An 8,77% increase compared to the same quarter a year ago. Dividend investing at work!
Contributions and purchases
I added € 400,00 to my fund at the end of February. This way I am building my cash position which is now around € 2.161,00. I really would like to put the money to use, but I don’t know where yet. I am analyzing companies like Canadian National Railway and more companies will follow. I trust this helps me to find the right stock for my portfolio. But it takes time and I need patience. It is an expensive market as we all know.
I purchased nothing this month.
February was a great month again! I really like the growth compared to last year. Omega Healthcare increased its dividend this month. Besides them, Wal-Mart and Royal Bank of Canada announced increases for the next payments. It’s just great when good companies decide to pay me more for owning a part of the company. I just wish my boss had the same thoughts when I’m working at the office!
