Looking at dividends received though the month and summarizing the numbers at the end of the month is such a great feeling because dividends represent real tangible income. Let’s take a look at the dividends received in February 2016.
The second month of the quarter is typically the slowest month.
Here are the dividends for February 2016. Total = $129.45
- Apple (AAPL) – $36.40
- Citibank (C) – $0.75
- General Mills (GIS) – $4.40
- Procter & Gamble (PG) – $18.56
- Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc (CBRL) – $16.50
- Clorox (CLX) – $11.55
- Kinder Morgan Inc (KMI) – $8.25 (dividend cut)
- AT&T (T) – $33.04
Here is how February 2016 ($129.45) compares with previous months.
- February 2015: $100.42, increased by $29.03, 28.90% increase
- November 2015: $138.29, decreased by $8.84, 6.39% decrease. The decrease is primarily due to KMI’s dividend cut. The dividend cut was actually more, but the total for the month was compensated by additional dividends in PG and T due to new investments.
Here are some charts looking at dividend growth over the years 🙂

The below chart shows the dividends that I have received until February each year. By February last year, I had received $336.27 and it has grown to $437.88 this year.
The below chart represents the total annual dividends. Looking at the numbers below, I have received little over 15.5% of my entire 2015 dividends in 2 months in 2016. This will definitely slow down through the year due to recent dividend cuts announced.
Progress for 2016:
With February dividends of $129.45, I have received 11.91% of my 2016 target of $3,675.00.
