Welcome back readers. February turned out to be a good month for me. I was able to set a new February record high for dividend income. The market has been seeing plenty of volatility lately. It goes up and then it goes down. There are opportunities out there but it’s a matter of finding them. I have been looking at some stocks to buy but so far I haven’t found any that I thought would work well in my portfolio. When looking at stocks I have to keep in mind factors including portfolio allocation, market trends and fundamentals of the company. I am hoping to find some opportunities that will work for my portfolio soon. Until then let’s take a look at how February turned out for More Dividends.
As mentioned above there were no major purchases made during February.
The 2nd month of the quarter has a new record for the amount of dividend income received.
Apple (APPL) – $1.27 – Reinvested
General Mills (GIS) – $8.51 – Reinvested
Hormel (HRL) – $1.88
Realty Income (O) – $2.19 – Reinvested
Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI) – $24.09 – Reinvested
STAG Industrial (STAG) – $1.30
WestRock (WRK) – $6.30 – Reinvested
February was the 2nd month of Q1 and accounted for $45.54 of my 2018 Dividend Income.
In total during 2018 I have earned $56.78 in dividend income!
That is 5.7% of my 2018 goal.
So far my dividends received looks like this:

Dividends Received By Year
Year over year, I saw a 56.9% increase in dividends earned during the month of February. That is some great YOY growth in dividend income received. This month is really starting to blossom when it comes to dividend income. Hopefully the income during the month will continue to grow.
Dividend Income February 2018
Since I didn’t make any major additions to my portfolio all changes in the allocation is because of the market fluctuations and reinvested dividends. I have started taking a look at my allocation more while I am looking for more buying opportunities.

Just like my allocation, the only changes you will see here is because of changes in the market and reinvested dividends.

With February now in the books I am very pleased with how it turned out. I was able to receive some nice dividend income from some good companies. I also got several announcements about increased dividends that will be coming in the future. Plus I am still shopping around for some more stock to buy and add to my portfolio. I am looking forward to everything that March has to offer in the form of dividend income and stock purchases.
Since I am currently shopping for some new stock purchases I would love to hear about any recent buys that you have made.
As always I look forward to reading all of your comments and questions, until then….. happy investing!
