Here is the dividend income report for July, 2016.
The monthly dividend income came out to $273.36. The yearly income total for 2016 through the end of the month was $3017.64.
The income for July, 2015 was $263.13, and the yearly income for 2015 through the end of July was $2678.45.
July is one of what David Fish refers in his spreadsheet as the “A” months (January, April, July, October). They are usually the months with the smallest totals. The months with the biggest hauls are the “C” months (March, June, September and December). Honestly I have no idea why that is.
I am also looking at LEG and YORW. LEG had a high payout ratio above 100% for a while, but they seem to be coming back to earth a bit. YORW is a water utility. They are based in central Pennsylvania. I looked on Wikipedia, and that area seems to be growing.
In other news, PE ratios are still high. I have not placed any orders. I plan on looking more at LEG and YORW.
Here is a table with the year-to-date amounts, the monthly amounts, and the three- and twelve-month moving averages for each July from 2011 through 2016:
