Here’s my net worth update and summary for March 2015. March was another quiet month with no major surprises – I filed my taxes, booked our trip to the UK this summer, saw the first green grass uncovered by snow, listened to Little Big Town’s Painkiller way too many times and spent quite a bit of time updating the UK Dividend Champions List. But did I step forward or backwards along the path to Financial Freedom?
I’ve updated the UK Dividends Champions List for April 2015.
There are 4 new Champions (25-Year), 8 new Contenders (10-Year), 2 new Challengers (5-Year) and 3 new Near-Challengers (4-Year). Four companies were removed from the list, including a 10-Year Contender. The List also now includes a separate Financial Year history sheet that’s still a work in progress.
CINCINNATI — (COMPANY WIRE) — The Procter & Gamble Company [NYSE:PG] today announced that its Board of Directors declared a cut in the quarterly dividend from $0.6436 to $0.401 per share on its Common Stock, citing a lower outlook due to overseas currency rates, weak consumer demand and unexpected seasonal variability in the month of April. The dividend will be payable on or after May 15, 2015 to Common Stock shareholders of record at the start of business on April 1, 2015. This represents a 38% decrease compared to the prior quarterly dividend.
