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.
How was your march income? Was it an improvement from the previous year? feel free to share or comment below and thanks for stopping by.
