I consider dividends to be earned on the ex-dividend date. Check the dates sheet on my Google sheets or the Calendar page here on my blog for upcoming ex-dividend & pay dates.

I consider dividends to be received on the payment date. Those are the figures I’ll be using here.

The following table and charts represent actual total monthly 2012-2019 dividends received from the portfolio since inception.

(Late dividends from Merrill Edge accounts were added, because those accounts which were transferred were still reinvesting dividends. I had asked them to turn off dividend reinvestment (I tried before I initiated the transfers). The only way I could contact them was to send a message on their website, and they usually replied that I can use their website to change my preferences regarding reinvestment of dividends, but of course I cannot because they have closed and disabled my accounts. That option is no longer available to me. They also advise me that I can call them 24 hours a day, but of course I cannot because they have closed and disabled my accounts. That option is no longer available to me, either. Besides, “it’s like I’m talking to dolphins”. Avoid Merrill Edge, they are a shitty broker!

HTH!
