Dividend Income – April 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 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.

Purchase: GIS, BEP, BIP, PG, TXN and JNJ

Wow quite a week that was! We saw a lot of dividend stocks price coming down to interesting territories… as a result I made a few transactions:

On 04/19:

  • Buy 7 shares of GIS for $44.66 / share.
  • Buy 8 shares of BEP for $31.07 / share.

On 04/24:

  • Buy 5 shares of BIP for $41.06 / share.
  • Buy 3 shares of PG for $73.00 / share.

On 04/25:

  • Buy 5 shares of BIP for $40.75 / share.
  • Buy 4 shares of PG for $72.59 / share.

On 04/27:

  • Buy 3 shares of TXN for $102.98 / share.
  • Buy 3 shares of JNJ for $127.73 / share.

These purchases were done in my taxable account and were transaction free (I recently moved broker and got 60 days free transactions).

My dividend portfolio is updated with above new holdings.


In addition, I also invested some cash which was waiting for opportunity in my SEP IRA:

  • Buy 20 shares of KMB for $97.68 / share.
  • Buy 10 shares of MMM for $205.55 / share.

I do not have this portfolio online yet – it will be soon.

March / June / September and December are my best months for income. Super happy about the difference from 2017 to 2018. I was so close to the big $1,000! Hey, maybe next June…

How did you do in March? Let me know!
