March 2016 Dividend Income

It has been a while since my last post, life gets busy and there is very little free time and we must allocate it efficiently and balance it with work hobbies family and friends.
with that said i plan to keep the blog posts more up to date. Now lets get to the march dividend income that i received from various companies.

AFL = $5.50
BP = $35.96
RDS-B = $23.65
COP = $8.87
CVX = $44.53
XOM = $22.95
UNP = $4.30
JNJ = $25.24
MCD = $24.48
UL = $13.02
EMR =$8.80
F = $24.24
MMM = $2.16
NOV = $10.48
BBL = $12.43
SO = $15.77

So there we have it, a grand total dividend income of $282.38 from 16 different companies. That is equivalent to a 55 % increase from last years march dividend income of $182.26. I know i do not get an increase of 55 % in salary from my regular job, so i am grateful for this growing income stream.
It shows i am on the right track and all that capital that has been put to work is starting to produce returns.
The portfolio is a bit heavy towards the energy sector at this time but it should balance out nicely overtime, as i will not be adding fresh capital to the energy names.

  1. Thanks for this update. Look forward to seeing more regular posts on your blog especially the passive income updates. I see a lot of solid names paying you back in March with quite a few in common with my portfolio. Keep up the good work.

    1. Hi divhut , i agree on the names paying me for the month of march . I am trying to follow your advice and stick to quality names and not chase high yield which is always tempting.
      I will get the blog updated with the passive income until it is current ,hopefully in the next few weeks.
      You are doing great yourself and thanks for stopping by.
