Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, HID1, HID2, & RothI enjoy sharing them as these passive dividend income provides me great inspiration and encouragement to keep chugging along and hopefully to the readers.

Wow! I scored a triple hundred plus in total passive dividend Income: $315.33 to be precise, this is the fourth time crossing $300.00 milestone figure this year. My dividend income was more than 4.11% as compared to last April and 41.58% more compared to last year’s July. It only shows the power of Dividend Growth compounding engine.

I’d setup a goal of earning $3500.00 in total passive dividend income this year and so far have received $1950.73. This is 55.73% of target for this year and a little behind.  We will see how next few months pan out.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

How did your Dividend Income come along this month of July? Meeting target.

Thanks for reading.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      Appreciate very much kind words. I’m trying to buy some solid companies. I was able to hit more than $300, which was awesome. Hitting my 2015 target is important to me and we will see it! Working hard on it 🙂 You are doing great over there with special dividends. Congrats to you as well.

    1. Hi Investing Pursuits,

      Congrats to you as well, on your crossing $300+, we are in same boat here 🙂 This is a nice passive income and some people earn it by working whole week! You are enjoying fruits of your hard work, like other DGI bloggers. Keep it up!

      Thanks for stopping by and appreciate much comments.

    1. Hi ADD,

  1. PIM,

    $315 in one month alone is very solid. I hope to one day be in a similar position, although I have a long road ahead since I only began my dividend growth journey in June of this year. Additionally, I am a fan of your W.P. Carey position. I love the direction that R.E.I.T. is heading.


    1. Hi DC,

      $300+ is a great to have and I’m sure you will get there, just keep at it Its never too late or too early in investing. Just few years back, I was in same position as you but I worked hard at it and fortunate to be in this position. WPC is a great reit, and I added 5 more positions in WPC, need to update my portfolio. I may add more.

    Isn’t it nice to receive over $300 by doing absolutely nothing? That’s why I love dividend income so much. Congrats!

    1. Hi Tawcan,

      I love it: Doing the happy dance 🙂 why not. Its a time to celebrate a triple digit of passive income. You have earned it! I’m excited as ever whenever $300 is crossed. I will even take out Champagne if I hit my target of $3500 this year. Ha!

      Appreciate the kind words. thanks for stopping by & nice comments.

  3. I really enjoy watching your journey. Keep up the awesome work! Dividend Investing is like building your own ATM and you’re already at $300!

    1. Hi DTD,

      Glad that you are following my journey and appreciate kind words also. Could not say better: Indeed, dividend investing is like owning one of your own ATM and magically, money appears every month once you have laid the ground work. Its very powerful tool to build FI.
