Dividend Income Update July 2018

Well, it definitely seems a bit less hot than the last time I posted (merely a 31C day compared to the sweltering 41C about a mont ago). Can you believe summer is half over?

July 2018

While not a record breaking month, July turned out to be solid for the Niche Fund. There was also a nice healthy boost from one of my newest holdings, DIS.

There were a fair number of sectors in the red looking back 1 month at the S&P finviz map. Looks like there may be some potential opportunities in technology and materials.


There was a bit of a split between several of the indices I normally track. They’re all positive by the end of July, but some less flat: S&P 3.3%, NASDAQ 1.8%, TSX 0.2%.

My dividend total in July was $22.61, up 40.8% from the same month last year. This is not one of the bigger months in terms of income, so it is still great to see such positive momentum. After the July income is added to the 2018 total, I’m less than $20 away from beating my 2017 annual total!

Most of the holdings in my Niche Fund pay quarterly dividends so some months will have more income reflected than others. My Dividend Income page has a calendar showing when I expect to receive dividends from each of my stock holdings.
