Here is the dividend income report for September, 2016.

The monthly dividend income came out to $720.86. The yearly income total for 2016 through the end of the month was $4260.70.

The income for September, 2015 was $659.59, and the yearly income for 2015 through the end of September was $3744.49.

Since September is a “C” month, the income was pretty high. Still not enough to cover the rent. Sometimes I wonder when this dividend investing will be enough to cover my expenses.

Questar (STR) was acquired by Dominion Resources. All STR shreholders got cash (at least I did) and a final dividend. I have been thinking about buying some more stock, and now I have to in order to keep getting the $12/quarter I was getting from STR.

I bought 50 shares of STR on 2011-03-02 at $17.34. By the time I was bought out on 2016-09-20, I had 59.367 shares. All the new shares were from dividend reinvestments, not from actual purchases. The first dividend from STR was paid on 2011-06-13, for $7.63, with a payout of $0.1530/share, which bought 0.442 shares at a price of $17.60, while the last regular dividend was on 2016-09-12; I got $12.95, with a payout of $0.22/share, which bought 0.517 shares at a price of $25.03. That is an increase of about 70% in dividend income over five years. (There was also another dividend on the day of the buyout of about $.07/share.)

Here is a table with the year-to-date amounts, the monthly amounts, and the three- and twelve-month moving averages for each September from 2011 through 2016:
