I update the dividends that companies and funds pay in a haphazard, when I get around to it manner, that could be from 3 months to a year.
The last time I had done it I got hammered with a lot of reductions and a few stopping. Pretty much all of our individual holdings pay dividends or did when acquired.
I noted by a non precise manner that most of my stuff increased maybe 7 cents a share on average this time. A few did drop or stop but effect overwhelmed by the trend. I notice banks had increased some. Income per month was significantly increased.
I know fed actions and bank relative strength was a factor but was curious if others have noticed or track this too.
