Here is the monthly dividend income report.
The income for August 2012 was $316.04, bringing my yearly dividend income to $2110.57. If I had 100 shares of each of these stocks, my income would have been $701.70.
One of the stocks was Vodafone, which does not pay every quarter. Without Vodafone the monthly income was $262.87, and the income of 100 shares would have been $600.02.
In May 2012, the income was $258.15, and the theoretical income of 100 shares would have been $588.20.
In August, 2011, the income was $322.35, and the income of 100 shares of each would have been $671.60. That includes Vodafone and Universal Corporation (UVV), which I have since sold.
So if you include just the stocks that I still have, they are all still increasing or at least maintaining their dividends.
Here are the stocks:
- AT&T: $23.69
- Vodafone: $53.17
- WGL Holdings Inc: $12.02
