September is generally one of the months where investors receive a lot of dividend income. Its really fun to read other bloggers and watch their year over year growth in the "big 4" months of the year.
Unfortunately for me, the "big 4" months are a little light in regards to income. The big reason is because I just do not have that many companies that pay in that month and the companies I do have are not big payers.
Just 4 sources of income this month:
FTSE - Mutual Fund: $94.92
Money Market: $0.13
My FTSE holding is my only mutual fund from my 401K that pays out a dividend. A bit disappointing that the other funds do not, but FTSE has been doing a fantastic job for me all around. The growth and the income have been great this year.
The prediction last month about UVE came true. Hopefully someone out there picked it up in the $15's!!! It has rebounding nicely and the hurricane impact was much less than predicted originally. Although for anyone in the Keys, and West Florida, hope everything is okay!
I did not have many portfolio changes this month. Looking into the future, I would love for CELG and BIIB to explode higher. PM, MO, DPS and O all look really attractive right now. I'd love to squeeze a few more points out of CELG and BIIB before making a move. The charts still look good for both of those companies and the overall IBB index is making moves higher. With healthcare on the back burner in Washington and taxes on the minds of everyone, the healthcare industry might come roaring back. With some good earnings reports and its a recipe for good things to come!
I hope everyone had a great September and I look forward to reading those big income totals!
