April is my when my heavy hitters pay their dividends. Kimberley-Clark NYSE:KMB, AT&TNYSE:T, and Bank of Nova Scotia TSE:BNS happen to be my heavy hitters – all inside my RRSP account. Crescent Point EnergyTSE:CPG was my highest dividend payer with over 80$ per month but I took some profits and diversified when it hit 48$. I was overweight and it was a great opportunity to sell.
My April 2011 dividend income is $463.82 compared with $419.35 for April 2010. That’s a 10% increase over last year. However, it’s lower than last January 2011 where I earned $489.86. The main reason for the difference is my decrease holdings in CPG with which I bought Rogers Communication (RCI.B). Out of my 19 investments, only 5 pay monthly and that’s why there is a fluctuation between the months in a quarterly pattern.
