Dividend Income - March 2016

Again, one month passed and it is time to report my dividend income. In March 2016 my portfolio dividend income was as follows:

Quarterly dividends received from: 

Intel Corporation (INTC) - €93.71 ($104.00)
Pfizer Inc. (PFE) - €54.59 ($60.00)
ConocoPhillips (COP) - €6.90 ($7.50)
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) - €40.87 ($45.00) 
Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM) - €16.35 ($18.00)
Unilever N.V. (AMS:UNA) - €15.09 ($16.86)  
Emerson Electric Co. (EMR) - €17.00 ($19.00) 
Chevron Corporation (CVX) - €57.58 ($64.20) 
Target Corporation (TGT) - €50.23 ($56.00)
McDonald's Corporation (MCD) - €16.02 ($17.80)  
Eaton Corporation (ETN) - €15.17 ($17.10
TAL International Group Inc. (TAL) - €40.20 ($45.00)
T. Rowe Price Group Inc. (TROW) - €11.91 ($13.50)
Digital Realty Trust Inc. (DLR) - €94.05 ($105.60)

Monthly dividends received from:

Global X SuperDividend ETF (SDIV) - €65.32 ($72.30)
Inter Pipeline Ltd. (IPL.TO) - €17.53 ($19.47

My Total dividends in March are € 612.52 ($681,33). After tax payments, net dividend income is € 453.39 ($504.34). In year 2015, my net dividend income in March was € 908.53. My portfolio's net dividend income decreased by 50% compared to last year in March. The reason for such a large decrease in dividends is that, Avance paid a dividend this year in February and not in March, like last year. In addition, on November 26, 2015, NCC announced that the company is planning to spin off NCC Housing instead of paying a cash dividend.

This month's dividend increased my cumulative net dividend income € 29,100.71. 

My net dividend income YTD is € 1,672.30, so I have now collected 15% of my target net dividend income for this year, which is €11,150.00.

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. That still looks like an excellent month to me. Especially since the decline was due to the timing of payments and the spinoff announcement. Keep it up.

  2. Even for a YOY decrease, that's a huge chunk of change! I'm curious if you drip those dividends? Thx

    1. Hi Captain, no I don't drip any dividends.

      Thanks for visiting!

  3. That's a nice solid income for the month of March and coming from a few names that we share in common. Always nice to see that. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Congrats on the dividend income, DH.


  5. That's a very nice amount of dividends, DH, nice. All the regular faces in there too that I recognise. Good luck for the rest of the year buddy.
