Dividend Income – May 2018

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! This post shows the grand total but you can check my dividend income page to see the dividend paid per positions.

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! 🙂

  1. Excellent totals, S2FI! Almost $650 for May is terrific…. and the YoY growth is impressive as well. It looks like you’ve been actively purchasing here in the past few weeks, and that will only add to your totals in the next quarter. Good luck in achieving that 4-digit amount in June!

    • Thanks! I did make quite a few purchases in the last weeks. I have been holding more cash than usual in the last year – you know in case the market tanks and opportunities show up. But lately starting to use some of it on these beaten down safe stocks ie. PEP, CAH, KMB, CLX etc…
      I really enjoy reading your posts – particularly I enjoy reading your stock option moves. I have sold one put recently on CMCSA – I am a beginner still learning 🙂

  2. Excellent month Steps to FI! I love the growth rate. Even though you sold OHI and this month’s income will decrease in the future, I’m sure you are excited to allocate your funds elsewhere!


  3. Healthy increase. Was noticing some dividends were lower than last time. still the YOY is good. I am holding OHI for now and hopes it rebounds. Keep it up

    • Hi Doug,
      Yes some dividends from May vs Feb are slightly lower indeed – this is because I changed brokerage company and somehow the transfer of assets had to be be done using whole shares. Some partial shares got sold which explains the difference of a few cents on several dividend payouts. Good luck on OHI! I still hold some in my Roth i.e. hoping for a rebound too! 🙂
