I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. This report is super late, so I’ll keep this short. Dividend income grew like crazy, dividend growth dropped a little from last November and net worth is pretty much moving with the market now.
November Dividend Income
This month I received $2,342.35 in dividend income! On average, I was paid $46.85 from 50 different payments! This month’s dividend income is a crazy 36.6% increase over November 2020.
That’s $627.65 more dividend income than last November!

Here is a chart of my passive dividend income progress over the last 5 years.
The dividend portfolio has been updated.
Here are the dividend stock purchases I’ve made between November 2020 and 2021 that have added to this dividend income growth.
November’s dividend income pretty much covers all my core expenses for the month!
November Dividend Growth (Dividend Increases)
Here are the realized dividend increases I collected this November. This clearly isn’t the largest dividend growth month, but it was still very respectable! November was actually a little low this month as compared to last November as LOW decided to raise their dividend a quarter early this year!
This November I received 7 dividend increases! Three of the dividend increases were over 10%!!!

November’s dividend increase adds a nice $83.16 in annual dividend income. These 7 dividend increases are the equivalent of investing an extra $2,376.00 of new money at 3.5% yield!
Net worth declined a bit this month following the stock market.
Let’s do the numbers…
Cash isn’t going to do anything but go down for the next few reports. I’ve been working hard to trim my cash cushion and put that money to work. I’m doing a pretty good job! Also, being in the midst of the Christmas holiday we’ve had some necessary (if you ask my wife) expenses (presents).
We haven’t done anything to our house for a few months… except, we bought some kick ass Christmas lights for the house.
For November, our electricity bill skyrocketed to $191 for the month and our gas bill went to $51! Maybe those Christmas lights and the extra computer usage at home cost a little more than I thought. That totals to $242… which is the same as summer month utility expenses. I’ll need to get that fixed.
Also, we received our rent check on time and zero service calls!
All in all, November turned out pretty well. Even with net worth dropping (which is not a stat that really effects me) dividend income and dividend growth turned out great! I hope to be able to keep up my investing pace. Both November and October dividend buys were substantial for me. You know I’ll keep trying to find the best dividend values I can. I hope you do too!
