As I'm writing this blog post, the American holiday known as Thanksgiving has come and gone. We're due for relatively warm temperatures here in Central Wisconsin over the next week with high temperatures reaching into the mid 40s Fahrenheit, which will be happily received by yours truly.
With that aside, let's take a look at my dividend income for the month of November 2021 and how it stacked up to August 2021 and November 2020!
During November 2021, I received $139.64 in net dividends. This works out to a 7.5% quarterly growth rate against the $129.94 in net dividends that my portfolio generated in August 2021.
The amount of dividends that I collected in November 2021 also represents a 62.1% year over year growth rate compared to November 2020, when I received $86.15 in net dividends.
A closer look at my dividend income reveals that I collected $127.76 in net dividends from 21 companies in my Robinhood account (the JPM dividend was actually paid in October, thus it's not counted in my calculations), $11.53 in net dividends from three companies in my Webull portfolio, and $0.35 from 15 companies in my M1 Finance account.
The net dividends that I received from my overall portfolio from August 2021 to November 2021 was $9.70 higher due to the following activity in my stocks:
I collected an extra $1.08 in net dividends from Williams Sonoma (WSM) within my Robinhood account, which was the result of the stock's previous 20.3% dividend increase that was announced in August.
My net dividends received from British American Tobacco (BTI) were $0.24 lower across the shares that I own in my Robinhood and Webull portfolios, which was due to fluctuations in the currency exchange rate between the U.S. Dollar and British Pound.
I collected an additional $0.01 from Realty Income (O) within my Robinhood account, which was the result of the stock's 0.2% increase in its monthly dividend in September.
My net dividends received from National Retail Properties (NNN) in my Robinhood portfolio were $0.53 higher, which was due to my purchase of an additional share of the stock in August.
I collected an extra $0.08 from Main Street Capital (MAIN) within my Robinhood account, which was the result of the stock's 2.4% increase in its monthly dividend in August.
My net dividends received from Tanger Factory Outlet Centers (SKT) increased by $0.06 in my Robinhood portfolio, which was due to a 2.8% increase in its quarterly dividend that I recorded in my spreadsheet but appear to have forgot to add to my dividend increases post.
I collected an additional $0.90 from Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) within my Robinhood and Webull accounts, which was the result of my decision to purchase a couple of units of the stock in October.
My net dividends received from Magellan Midstream Partners (MMP) were boosted by $2.16 in my Robinhood portfolio, which was due to both a 1% increase in the quarterly distribution and my choice to add two more units in October.
My net dividends received from Bristol Myers Squibb (BMY) were $4.90 higher in my Robinhood portfolio, which was due to a first-time dividend payment from the stock since I opened a position in September.
I collected an additional $0.22 from Verizon (VZ) within my Robinhood account, which was the result of the 2% increase in the quarterly dividend announced in September.
My net dividends continue to steadily climb higher with each passing quarter. Given that I expect to continue investing around $2,000 a month going forward and I'm anticipating a variety of dividend increases next month, I believe this will be my last middle of the quarter month under $150 in net dividends.
I'm pleased with the direction of the portfolio and I am looking forward to seeing how high I can get those net dividends next November!
How was your November 2021 for dividend income?
Did you receive any first-time dividends during the month as I did with BMY?
