Monthly Dividend Income – July 2016

Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID, & RothI enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.

I scored seven+ hundred in total passive dividend Income: $706.00 to be precise. Though, it was little less than April quarter due to GSK having a special dividend last time around but still out of park as compared to last July, over 120% higher. That’s awesome. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine. I’m that much closer to being  Financially Independent (FI) and living a life that I want to live and enjoy my freedom.

Recent Buy – BNS, HCN, VOD

I’m looking for companies that are fairly valued, have a decent dividend yield(3% to 6%) and have a fairly long history of paying dividends consistently for 10 years or more. However, there could be some cases for exceptionally good company or a strategic buy for a very long term.

Here are the buys for the second week of July, 2016:

1) Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS)
This is my 9th buy of BNS this year, a marathon buying spree so far! It only shows how much I value it. I added 5 positions in BNS on 7/14 at $50.62. It’ll add $14.40 of passive dividend income on an annual basis.

2) Welltower Inc. (HCN)
I bought 5 positions in HCN at $76.36 on 7/14 and it’ll add $17.20 of passive income on an annual basis.

3) Vodafone Group plc (VOD)
I bought 10 positions in GSK on 7/14 at $30.81 in my taxable account. It will add $20.50 of passive income on an annual basis that I do not need to work for.

Full Disclosure: Long on above mentioned securities.

1) Abbott Laboratories, Inc. (ABT)
I bought 5 positions in ABT at $39.43 on 7/01 and it’ll add $5.20 of passive income on an annual basis.

This is 7th time buying BNS this year. I added 10 positions in BNS on 7/01 at $48.99. It’ll add $28.80 of passive dividend income on an annual basis. Bank stocks have nicely recovered in last few weeks.
