Dividends – September 2020 ($436.08)
September was a pretty solid month for dividends. This month is the end of the quarter for some of my biggest payers, such as Chevron (CVX) and BP (BP). Overall, I received a solid $436.08 in dividends.
I received a solid $436.08 in dividends.
Here’s the breakdown:
Several of these are big payers, while Vanguard Total World Stock Index is in one of my retirement accounts where I have little flexibility in investment options.
Let’s compare this September to last September:
In September 2019, I only received $179.96. That’s $256.12 more (+142%) in just a year of investing. A big part of the increase is simply focusing on dividends, but also, the big drop in March from coronavirus made several stocks very cheap. I was able to pick up several shares of Chevron for instance at only $55/share, which equated to about a 9% dividend yield on those shares.
Overall, pretty solid month for dividends! Looking forward to finishing out the year strong.
