November 2017 Passive Income Report
Only one more month to report before the end of 2017! Wow what a crazy run it’s been this year. A lot of fun too reporting these income figures every month, they continue to keep heading upward! Just like I am in 2018 plan mode at work, I’ll be entering 2018 plan mode in my dividend life soon too!
Nice bump for an off month year over year, I sold out of my CAT position and added to my AT&T (T) position in the last year. The ARR impact of their dividend cut continues to diminish and it won’t be too long until I’m back in the black there, who knows maybe they’ll raise it again, the business is back in pretty good health.
12-month dividends for this account are now $1,949.50 after ending October at $1,941.78. This is a .40% increase. Minor increase but still heading in the right direction. I’ve fully funded this account at this point this year and so I won’t be making any more purchases until 2018.
Alrighty, that’s what I like to see, huge increase. Dividend increases and a purchase leading to this big jump. Love it, almost doubled up my income.
Forward 12-month dividends for this account are now $1,025.15 after ending October at $1,010.70. This is a 1.43% increase in my forward income. I still have a nice pile of cash to deploy in this account and hopefully this is the month I do it!
Same old, same old for the BX holding, providing great results on a quarterly basis. This payout was less than last quarter’s payout but higher than 2016’s. So I’ll take that 7.32% bump!
Forward 12-month dividends for this account are now $505.51 in comparison to $500.51 at the end of October, for a .10%. Baby increase here, but I’m committed to making a purchase this week, so this will be up more next month!
After ending October with $142.80 in forward dividends, I am now up to $146.33 in forward income. This is a 2.45% increase. Nice continued improvement in my forward dividend income. Still small for now, but consistent additions will lead to epic growth.
In total, my dividend income for the month of November 2017 was $283.32, up 45.04% from my November 2016 total of $195.34. Wow, just amazing. Almost jumped $100 from last year. Will be over the $300 mark in this “off” month in no time.
Forward dividend income now sits at $3,626.49 up from $3,595.79 for a total increase of $30.70, or .85%. Marching toward $4,000 a year in forward dividend income. This is awesome. I should be around $3,800 I’d guess by the end of 2017, so early estimates Tell me my 2018 goal in forward income is going to be around $5,200. I’m super excited to start calculating this goal.
