Here is the dividend income report for April, 2016.
The monthly dividend income came out to $270.38. The yearly income total for 2016 through the end of the month was $1622.67.
The income for April, 2015 was $612.48, and the yearly income for 2015 through the end of April was $1179.82.
There was not too much going on. The “A” months of January, April, July, October (as David Fish labels them in his Dividend Champions spreadsheet) do not feature too many companies paying dividends.
Piedmont Natural Gas Co. (PNY) is still on the list. They are being acquired by Duke Energy (DUK), which pays out in the “C” months of March, June, September and December. So those months will get a little more top-heavy. But for some reason it always took a few days for the PNY dividend to get processed. I have no idea why this is. Most dividends that I receive show up in my account the day they are paid. They days the companies said I would get them when the dividends are announced in a press release several weeks ahead of time.
But PNY is always late for some reason. I have no idea why. This month I finally got the money the last trading day in April. For some reason it bugs me. I hope DUK is more on the ball.
My order for more Air Products and Chemicals (APD) was not filled, so I will not get a boost in my APD payout in May. Perhaps in August. My quest to get more money in the “A” and “B” months continues.
Here is a table with the year-to-date amounts, the monthly amounts, and the three- and twelve-month moving averages for each April from 2011 through 2016:
