Here is the dividend income report for October, 2015.
The monthly dividend income came out to $312.23. The yearly income total for 2015 through the end of the month was $4056.72. Right now I am a few months ahead of where I was in 2014.
The income for October, 2014 was $243.87, and the yearly income for 2014 through the end of October was $3236.89.
I got income from KO twice. I sold it in my IRA after the dividend was paid, and bought shares for my taxable account. I have sold a few more of the stocks in my IRA that I replaced in my taxable account.
It is possible while I am reallocating money that my moving averages might go down.
