October earnings, nothing more nothing less!
Now how about those dividends that flushed in without a single drop of sweat this month?
USD Stocks paying dividends this month
Just because I like visually presented development better than just raw number crunching tables, this month’s performance of my dividend portfolio is shared in graphs (as with my previous updates). Presented in neat graphics (made available by Google Spreadsheets):
In total, 395,19 USD were transferred to my account.
Nothing happened euro-wise…
Comparison against previous years
In hard USD figures the dividend payments till date result in the following spiked chart: Clearly, a year is build up from 4 ecstatic dividend distributions.

To see what percentage of growth (negative or positive) this month’s figures result into is visualized in the following graph. Here the monthly distributions are compared per year. What we see here is that this month’s figure is keeping the growth in the higher regions. This month: +35% when compared to last year’s!
Dividends are scheduled by their respective distributors in a (preferably) very structured manner. This characteristic makes the harvest neatly comparable. Here we have a truly comparable format for showing the monthly payments over the years.

The “Future” figure I’m currently working towards is a steady additional 200USD (on average) per month for this year. To see whether I’m actually getting somewhere with this figure (that is for now grasped out of thin air) is clearly visualized in the below figure: Up till this month we’re not really doing that bad!
