October 2014 Income
This October was another solid month, despite the fact that I only have 5 stocks paying dividends this month. I guess you could say it is one of my “off” months, yet I still received $100.72. That amount is approximately 30% higher than October of 2013. Other than BAX, which was not purchased in time to receive last October’s distribution, all the dividend increases were due to the company raising its annual dividend. The recent GE purchase did not contribute towards GE’s 2014 dividends. Next quarter the GE dividend (without any further dividend increases) will be $44.75.
Options: I have no current put options in play.
