Bert’s March Dividend Income Summary

Wow.  What a month it has been.  My busy season came to a roaring close, there were an insane number of March Madness upsets, and my personal favorite, baseball season is back!  One of my favorite activities each month is sitting down with a nice beverage and aggregating my final dividend results for the month.  I tally the results throughout the month, but there is something exciting about finalizing my totals and seeing the final amount of dividend income received and calculating my year over year growth rate.  Since this is March, aka the final month of the quarter, this is a very fun activity!  Let’s see how I performed this month.  Here is my March dividend income summary.
