2017 September Dividend Summary

Well, another month has come and gone and along with it came a personal record in dividends received in the month of September. As noted below, I received $821 in dividends during the month of September - that is $371 more than I received this same time last year. Of that $371 increase, 8.7% came by way of rate increases across companies that I held at the same time last year and 73.6% of the YoY increase is attributed to either entirely new positions I entered into during the past 12 months or positions I've added to.
