Monthly Review, September 2013

September was one of the quieter months for DivGro. I added only one stock, PennantPark Investment Corp. (PNNT), increasing DivGro's projected annual dividend income to $1,766. In comparison, August's projected annual dividend income was $1,522.

With a market value of $45,992, DivGro's projected annual dividend income of $1,766 averages to a yield of 3.85%.

TRV's dividend payment this month helped me reach my 2013 goal of earning at least $750 in dividend income with DivGro stocks! I've now earned $760.11 in dividend income.
Here's an updated chart showing the growth of projected monthly dividend income since January 2013. The growth comes from dividend increases and from new dividend paying stocks being added to DivGro.

For September, the projected monthly dividend income is $147, up from $127 last month. I'll continue to invest dividend income along with my regular monthly deposits of $1,000.

Looking Ahead: In January, I set a goal to average one blog per week in 2013. My next post will be my 52nd, so with my next post I will reach that goal! September marks the end of the third quarter, so look out for another quarterly review soon.
