October 2016 Dividend Meter Update

October 2016 Dividend Income

As we enter the final quarter of 2016, the needle on the Dividend Meter broke the $6,700 barrier in October!  Here’s a quick summary of last month’s activity:

10/28/2016 $6,710.74 AFL dividend increase, raises meter reading $5.92
10/27/2016 $6,704.82 Bought 28 shares of SBUX in regular account with new savings, raises meter reading $22.40
10/19/2016 $6,682.42 Sold 10 shares of AAPL, bought 38 shares of OGE, raises meter reading $23.18
10/18/2016 $6,659.24 Bought 8 shares of ADP in regular brokerage acount with new savings, raises meter reading $16.96
10/18/2016 $6,642.28 Bought 23 shares F with accumulated dividends in IRA Rollover #2, raises meter reading $13.80
10/16/2016 $6,628.48 OHI dividend increase, raises meter reading $9.88

Looking ahead to November, dividend increase announcements are expected from AWR, SBUX, and ADP.   Next month, I also plan to enhance my spreadsheet by adding a new column to import EPS (earnings per share) to calculate a dividend payout ratio – stay tuned.

    Buying, selling, dividend raises… looks like it was a busy month. I still have SBUX on my watch list. I know I’ll finally pull the trigger on that name one day. Congrats on cracking he $6,700 barrier! Here’s to a strong 2016 finish!

    I love ADP. It seems to be a solid company through booms and busts.

    ADP recently announced earnings and the stock is up since then.

    Keep up the great work at Dividend Meter!
