October 2017 Dividend Income Summary

Alright! October has come to an end so let's see how we have done.

In October I received a total of $39.26 in dividend income. Not bad for the first month of the quarter.

The following stocks paid me a dividend:

Coca Cola Company (KO): $12.58
Realty Income (O): $4.50
Cisco Systems (CSCO): $22.18

All dividends are after dividend taxes of 15%, but I can reclaim this via the dutch IRS, so there's an added bonus there when I do my taxes for 2017 (in March 2018).

Last year October I didn't receive any dividends, so I can't compare the growth. But at least we now have a baseline to compare the results with next year October.

Here's the updated dividend income graph:



In October I made three purchases. I added to my CVS Health (CVS) position by buying another 15 shares. I also added to my Unilever (UN) position. I didn't find the time to publish a blogpost about this, but I bought another 15 shares at €47.97 per share when it dipped from €50+. And lastly, I initiated a position in British American Tobacco (BATS) by buying 40 shares.

Let's keep this snowball rolling! :D How was your month? Got some nice juicy dividends as well? Make sure to leave a comment.

Thanks for reading.
