Here is the dividend income report for November, 2016.
The monthly dividend income came out to $506.98. The yearly income total for 2016 through the end of the month was $5048.77.
The income for November, 2015 was $460.83, and the yearly income for 2015 through the end of November was $4517.55.
It looks like I will beat my total from 2015. But I will still not beat my best year, so 2016 will only be my second-best year. For the first time, my 12 month moving average was more than $500.
For the past few years, my total was going up by about $1000/year, but I think that rate will not hold this year. I will have to live to about 150 to be able to live off my dividends at the rate this is going. Granted, if I rolled over my Roth 401K from my job, I would have a lot more money to invest.
Right now, I am not too sure what to invest it in. PE ratios are still pretty high. But, as I have said, they have been high for a while. But, as Barry Ritholtz reminds us, markets are rarely fairly valued. Maybe next year I will start to buy more. I found a site called Earnings Cast that archives quarterly conference calls for a lot of companies. Another thing to add to my to-do list.
