Here is the dividend income report for February, 2015.
The monthly dividend income came out to $353.85. The yearly income total for 2015 through the end of the month was $567.34.
The income for February, 2014 was $336.61, and the yearly income for 2014 through the end of February was $496.28.
I bought more AT&T and Verizon to get them up to 100 shares, so that helped bring the total up. Vodafone paid less than last year, but the difference was made up by Verizon. So I think the yearly difference will be more impressive for May.
I sold my shares of Abbott Laboratories after the payout. Based on P/E ratios, none of the stocks that I own and pay in February look too attractive right now. Of the stocks that I am looking at that I do now own and pay in February, Deere looks interesting right now.
Here is a table with the amounts, the year-to-date amounts and the three- and twelve-month moving averages for each February from 2012 through 2015:
