October for me is one of my smaller months with only 3 payments and only earned £40.04 from the following.

Dividends
IRM @ £19.08
MPW @ £12.84
CSCO @ £8.12

What was everyone else's dividend month like?

This month I'm expecting 3 payments from ABBV, UKW and BATS which should come to around £90.

October is the second lowest dividend month for me all year. Luckily the other months bolster up my monthly averages.

IRM @ £0.71
VUSA @ £0.47
+ 5 others at £0.10 or less.

Nov brings in only 3 for me, but bigger payouts...OneOK, AT&T, Verizon (Average dividend is 6%)

IRM has a great yield, even after a 15% withholding tax deduction. It a shame when we have these smaller months but when our large months hit it more than makes up for it.

When's T cutting its dividend, following the spin off?

Early to mid 2022 from what i've been reading. cutting it down by half.
Typical really, i chose T based on the fact they were in the 25+ years of dividend increases year on year.....and 1 year on they announced the cut :mad:

I've never really cared to much for the dividend aristocrat and King list for this very reason. I have the same sentiment around ESG investing. Much better to do full DD than to look at how many medals a company has.

Though the cut is annoying it should be interesting to see T try and streamline the company along side the spun off company and how they perform

October is indeed a quieter month.
I won’t list my dividends but they total half of what September brought in..
I’m favouring these multi asset funds / investment trusts that give sustainable income and probably some protection should everything go into reverse or inflation goes off the scale..
HDIV, ADIG, MATE, JARA etc
I also got lucky with the Premium bonds.. what’s everyone having to drink??

Same here, October was a quiet month. I am coming up to a year since recording payments, so it will be nice to compare the two.

Suppose it could be worse!

Take care all!

That 39p dividend from Coca Cola might get you a can - but perhaps in a multipack to get the equivalent price ?
