Dividend Income Update - October 2018

        The month of October 2018 is another month of dividend income landing in my accounts. This money is used to help pay my expenses if it is needed. If the money is not needed, it is ALL used to purchase new investments to further increase my cash flow.

    I received a total of $451.33 in dividend income for the month of October 2018.  This represents a 9.16% decrease from 3 months ago and 4.72% increase year over year.  

    The decrease of 9.16% from 3 months ago is attributed mostly to selling my Dream Office REIT position in my margin account which was offset of higher distribution from CUF.UN and the $US paid dividend by QSR. The dividend payment of QSR is the Canadian dollar equivalent that was deposited in my margin account. 

    I received $0.00 from option premiums within my investment accounts in October 2018.

    I will update my dividend income tab with the new amount I will include my option premium income also.  It is great to see money from passive income sources deposited into my brokerage account every single month.

How was your dividend income for October 2018?
