|Div. Changes YTD||1,022||0.16%|

In September I exceeded my 2014 goal of $30,000 of annualized dividends from my Dividend Growth Stock portfolio. For the month, annualized dividend income increased $416 and Yield on Cost (YOC) was up 0.01%. This month's changes were a net of new purchases, dividend changes and sales. Let's examine each of the these categories:
Purchases: Purchases this month increased my annual dividend income by $340 and held yield on cost flat 0.00%. As noted in earlier updates, I generally expect YOC to drop in most months since new investments will yield less than my current YOC, and dividend increases will not normally be sufficient to offset the decline.
Dividend Changes: The $76 increase in annual dividend income and increase of 0.01% in YOC related to the following dividend changes (a=dividend stated in annual terms, q=quarterly, m=monthly):
- $76 ConocoPhillips (COP) $0.69q>$0.73q
Sales: There were no sales in the month of September.
That's it for this time. The next monthly progress update will be early November.
Full Disclosure: Long, all the aforementioned securities. See a list of all my dividend growth holdings here.
