Lanny's November Dividend Income Summary

Published Tue, 04 Dec 2018 07:46:27 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

We are one month from the dividend income showdown in December. Yes, this month marks the preparation for the biggest dividend month of them all. Reviewing this current month's dividend income results reminds me that all of the hard work throughout the year is about to enter the dividend portfolio. November was a great month. There was unexpected news on dividend increases, as well as improvements along the way. Outside of this past month being freezing, with slight snow and too many leaves, collecting dividend income has warmed up my days! It's time to dive in and review the results.
Dividend Income I received a total of $538.65 of dividend income in November. Another record, no doubt, but not by much and wasn't as strong of a dividend earning increase versus other competing months. However, it's in the green or positive. Further, the 401(k), Health Savings Account (HSA) and all dividends are automatically invested/reinvested and helps take the emotion out of timing and making a decision. Also, to find out why I max out my 401(k) and HSA, please refer to the 3rd part of my tax series, (though I have the breaks on the 401k, as I recently posted due to the 6 month waiting period, only a little over 1 month of waiting to go!) as that describes the magnitude of benefits to increase the amount you can invest due to reduction in taxes. Here is the breakdown of dividend income for the month of November!
