Dividend income & raise - July 2017

July is usually a slow month for me.
This year was no different. However, I'm still very satisfied with the year over year growth.

Dividend income

KO $15.54
GE $9.60
CSCO $8.99
GPS $10.35
VIAB $4.60

Total July: $49.08 (pre tax)
Net received: $39.71

Comparison with last year (gross)
July 2016: $39.71
July 2017: $49.08

This is a 23.6% YoY increase. Could be better, could be worse, right? :)

Dividend raises

OHI increaseed their quarterly dividend from $0.63 to $0.64.
This is a 1.59% increase. Due to this change, my YOC is now at 7.65%.

Update on goals
My goal is to receive $1000 in gross dividends in 2017.
With month 7/12 being over, I'm curious to see how I'm donig.

Gross dividends received so far: $534.15, while it should have been $583.33.
That means I'm currently behind schedule, but with consistent investing (and blogging..) I should be able to reach the goal!

How was your July?
