2015-09 Dividend Income Report

Here is the dividend income report for September, 2015.

The monthly dividend income came out to $659.59. The yearly income total for 2015 through the end of the month was $3744.49. Right now I am a few months ahead of where I was in 2014.

The income for September, 2014 was $536.75, and the yearly income for 2014 through the end of September was $2993.02.

I sold ConocoPhillips. They seemed like the weakest major oil company out of the three that I own. I later noticed that ConocoPhillips increased their dividend this year, while Chevron did not. However, Chevron’s payout ratio is still below 100%, while ConocoPhillips’ is above 100%. We shall see what will happen.

I am still in the process of adding stocks to my taxable account. Hopefully it will be enough to make up for the loss of income from ConocoPhillips.

So far I am mostly replacing stocks that are in my IRA accounts. But this will allow me to buy more shares of the stocks I own. I also might buy shares in my IRA accounts that are too big for my taxable account. It would take $17,000 to buy enough Honeywell in order for the dividend payment to buy an entire share. That is more than I want to spend in my taxable account right now. But I am willing to either spend that much in my IRA or only get enough shares so the dividends buy half a share.

Here is a table with the year-to-date amounts, the monthly amounts, and the three- and twelve-month moving averages for each September from 2011 through 2015:
