Here is my October portfolio update:

How I Grew My October Dividend Income By 19.9%

I also recently added a portfolio tracker spreadsheet at the bottom of my Dividend Resources page for people to copy if they'd like. It's similar to the one I use myself.

Enjoy!

Great read.  I hope the employment change works out okay.  I'm not familiar with Watsco, so I'll have to look into that one.

Thanks. The new job has been working out just fine. It is a bigger company so the benefits are a bit better, and both of my bosses who were owners of the previous company stayed on as well, so the work environment is pretty much the same as it has been.

I don't know that I've ever seen WSO in another DGI portfolio on Seeking Alpha, but it's been an excellent stock for me. It's put up 18% annualized returns over the last 15 years, and nearly 20% over the last 5.

People see the dividend cut in 2013 and think it was a bad thing, but WSO paid out a huge special dividend at the end of 2012 because of fears of tax changes on dividends. I think that was the same time as the government shut-down and sequester. Company has raised it quite aggressively since then and maintains a high payout ratio.

Thanks for the 30 second summary.  I notice that it's a Near-Challenger (CCC list).  I'm adding it to my watchlist.
