Recently on Oct 15, I had my highest one day total of dividends and distributions (as I own a few REITs)..
I received a total of $149.26 in dividends and distributions. Of this $149.26 total, $56.00 is from a swing trade I have which will not be counted in my monthly dividend update. That is $149.26 I got paid for just being an owner of high quality companies.
Also, Emera recently increased its dividend to 1.45 per share. This represents a 3.57 percent increase in the dividend which is equivalent of a 3.57 percent raise for doing little to no work. Gotta love it and other companies I own will likely have a bigger dividend increase.
