152. November 2017 Dividend update

Preparations for this year’s end: Grande Finale with a capital G and F in them.



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, 102,24 USD paid this month. Cheers to another month in triple digits!




Euro-wise.. Zilch.

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. Usually these are scheduled around the same months allowing for a nice warming up and cooling down period towards and after. This also affects my spending behaviour in new stock purchases. Money on the move.




The YOY line is a rather interesting one. Seen that last year the November totals were only just shy of 100. Up by 3%!




Somewhere, this is a little bummer, now where was that list of stocks paying in November 2016?



That’s it, Full Circle spewed out the last of its insides. So a more or less healthy operating dividend portfolio in 2017 versus a last bang of one of the top performers in 2016.


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.




And, in a slightly different format:  



In terms of periodically development looking at the cumulative figure (and this is a personal favourite of mine!)




Looking at cumulative YOY % changes: currently, this month brought me 21% ahead of last year.  A matter of rounding figures here and there probably is the reason of the small decline.




Now, this is what we were actually after: a yearly comparison on absolute current standings. How far are we as opposed to last years averages? You’ll find it here! All in all, the yearly average this month (total dividends paid / 12) is depicted below:




Portfolio


With the new purchases of lately, the portfolio now consists of another few monthly paying shares. Following figure gives an idea of the amounts of shares paying out each month. Last month, 14 companies paid out.

Goals


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!
