The September installment of this article highlights XX separate journeys and each of their September dividend income summaries.

A Frugal Family’s Journey – $273.26 – I see you are heavy in the oil industry.  I am VERY curious what Exxon Mobile (XOM) will do with their dividend.  Have you considered building up other dividend stock positions, to reduce the exposure to oil stocks?  Something to consider!

Young Dividend – $1,998.56 – I feel your pain with dividend cuts.  However, enjoy the dividends from Honeywell (HON), Microsoft (MSFT) and McDonald’s (MCD), to name a few.  Speaking of McDonald’s – maybe November we have a dividend increase?  Let’s hope!

Passive Canadian Income – $741.38 – The 21% dividend increase is great PCI! We love that Johnson & Johnson addition this year. Those dividend payments, from the BEST dividend stock, provided a nice bump for you.
