I’m a value investor with a thing for dividends. I’d like to live off the dividends from my portfolio when I reach financial independence. Every month I record the dividends harvested from my portfolio in my trusty Numbers spreadsheet and report them here for you to enjoy too.

It’s been a few months since I’ve posted the last dividend income update back in December – but don’t be fooled, the seeds for the crop just lay dormant. In March, my portfolio provided a succulent harvest.
March Dividend Income
I received dividends from one company, one Aussie LIC and one UK Investment Trust in March. Schweeeet! 🙂
- Telstra (TLS.AX) provided dividends of $63.25 and $27.11 in franking credits
- Barrack St. Investments (BST.AX) produced dividends of $30.00 and $12.86 in franking credits
- Aberforth Smaller Companies Trust (ASL.L) delivered $58.65 in dividends.
Total Dividend Income: $151.90
Total Franking Credits: $39.97
Total grossed up dividend of $191.87.
March was my second best month to date – only getting pipped by August 2017 by less than $1.00AUD! This brings the WF30 portfolio dividend income to a total of $191.87 for 2018 and $543.06 since inception in April 2017.
