2016-02 Dividend Income Report

Here is the dividend income report for February, 2016.

The monthly dividend income came out to $383.08. The yearly income total for 2016 through the end of the month was $620.16.

The income for February, 2015 was $353.85, and the yearly income for 2015 through the end of February was $567.34.

One reason the income went up is that I bought more shares of Texas Instruments (TXN). I put a limit order in a few months ago for what I thought was a good price. Immediately afterward the stock market as a whole went up. Then it went down and the order was filled.

I am thinking about buying more shares of Air Products and Chemicals (APD). I have a few thousand dollars from the Chubb/ACE merger (now CB). I think it is a good company to invest in. It was one of the first stocks I bought. When I started buying, I spent around $1000 on each company, buying as many shares as I could get for that amount of money. For APD, it was about 14 shares. So now I get just under a tenth of a share every quarter. It is taking a loooong time to accumulate new shares. The money from CB will go quite a ways. I might get closer to half a share of APD a quarter.

3M (MMM) is another stock that I bought very few shares of for $1000, and is accumulating very slowly. However, MMM pays out in March/June/September/December, and I would like to balance things out a bit more.

Here is a table with the year-to-date amounts, the monthly amounts, and the three- and twelve-month moving averages for each February from 2012 through 2016:
