Dividend Income – April/May 2019

At the start of every month, I post a report showing the dividends received in my accounts for the previous month. This is always very exciting to see the progress made, and really reveals the true power of compounding using the dividend growth investing strategy!

Well this report is actually for both April and May!…

Dividend income received in April 2019

  • Taxable account: $574.29 – April 2018 was $357.11

Dividend income received in May 2019

  • Taxable account: $758.82 – May 2018 was $649.54

So far in 2019, I have collected a total dividend income of about $4,642 in my taxable account and my estimated projected annual income is now at around $10,940. Next milestone in sight $12 K… :)!

I had a few unexpected expenses in the last few months, and did not buy much but planning for that to change next month with more regular purchases. Riding the ups/downs of the market for now, while collecting the dividend income for now!

Dividend Income – March 2019

Well it’s been about a few months since my last post / update. I took a few months off – from the blog, but also from work. The family and I took off to experience living in Europe for 4 months – we were in France, Spain and Italy. It was like a mini retirement: to visit places but also to get a real taste of life with only you deciding how to allocate your time!

I learnt a lot about myself overall and also about practical things such renting my place, travel hacks (credit cards related, car rental, booking places to stay..), getting mail remotely, using vpn, using my cell phone, insurance etc… After this, I think the next time we do a mini-retirement it will be easier!

I may write more about this experience to share some tips but for now it’s back to reporting my dividend income for last month. While away, it was definitely comforting to know that the dividends were still coming in – growing our portfolio and also providing some kind insurance with extra money available in case I had budgeted too light. My budget was actually over what it costed us so all dividends received have been re-invested, and the left-over cash I had earmarked as “trip” has been used to buy more shares.

Dividend income received in March 2019

  • Taxable account: $1,440.34March 2018 was $954.49

I had to double (triple) -check this, I cannot believe the difference from last year… that’s almost $490! what?! wow – well I guess most investments I added were in stocks paying in March/June/September/December (which are my top months) and also all these dividend increases worked great… it adds up – yeah so happy to be a dividend investor – loving the compounding magic!

For traceability, the income received in my taxable account during my trip were:

  • December 2018: $1,217.52
  • January 2019: $578.20
  • February 2019: $661.37

So where are we:

  • so far in 2019, I have collected a total dividend income of about $2,680 in my taxable account 
  • my estimated projected annual income is now at $10,806.29

Getting back to work, I am now fired up to save more and invest more! 🙂 Only it’s hard to find great value right now – but I will continue to nibble on. This week I bought additional shares of WBA, WFC, MDT and BLK.

Happy investing everybody!

Dividend income received in June 2018

  • Taxable account: $1,066.02 – June 2017 was $853.51

YES! This is my first ever month with more than $1,000 in dividends! This is a fantastic increase since last year’s June. I keep on saving and buying – consistency is key – paying myself FIRST! It’s a great feeling to see the numbers growing – with every month passing, I feel I am making a difference for my older myself and family! Thanks to all the dividend growing community for sharing your own paths towards a life full of dividends 🙂

I am very excited for my dividend income during the month of June. Cannot wait for September, December – am I going to pass the $1,100 before the end of the year? I feel like it may be possible – a few more dividend increase announcements, a few more purchases and that should be in the bag!

I hope had a good June dividend payout! Great 4th of July.

Dividend income received in May 2018

  • Taxable account: $649.54 – May 2017 was $501.38

This is a nice increase since last year’s May. In May, I sold my entire position in OHI in my taxable account, but still got the dividend payout since I sold after the ex-dividend date. That will lead to potentially less dividends in August but maybe all other stocks will make up for it?! To be seen…

I am very excited for my dividend income during the month of June. If all goes as expected I should be above the $1,000 for the first time ever! Stay tuned! 🙂

Dividend income received in April 2018

  • Taxable account: $338.34April 2017 was $350.76

January / April / July / October are my worse months for dividend income… it’s nowhere close to the $900 + I got last month that’s for sure.

GE and TIS got sold since last April (2017), and also somehow BP dividend has been paid in April this year, got it end of March last year: explains why the amount received this April is less than April 17.
