Dividend Income Update – June 2015

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 in total passive dividend Income: $300.00 to be precise, this is the third time crossing $300.00 milestone figure this year. My dividend income was lower than last March quarter as BHP Billiton (BBL) did not pay in June but it was still more than 79.74% compared to last year’s June quarter. 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.

I’d setup a goal of earning $3500.00 in total passive dividend income at the beginning of this year and received $1635.40 so far. I’ve covered 46.25% of the target at half way mark and behind by a whisker 🙂 This month of June was a big one for me and most of DGI bloggers as well. It covered some ground in the shortfall of last low month, that I’m glad to take. However, there is lot more ground to cover to achieve a challenging target for this year.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

How did your Dividend Income this month of June. Are you moving along the target?

Thanks for reading.

  1. Hi, wow, you are very effective at generating passive income. So many pipelines and so organized. I’m sure you’re meet your goal of $3500 no problem. With the recent market pullback, there is so many opportunity to buy at higher yield.

    1. Hi Vivianne,

      Appreciate the nice words. I worked very hard this year to reach a target of $3500 and I’m excited to see how the rest of the year work out. Market did provide some opportunities and I bought few that I’m be posting soon. However, it was a short window and market again started moving up and it does what it always likes to do 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. A triple hundred from a few names that we share in common for the month of June. No doubt you’ll reach your goal. Look at those high yielding Canadian banks for some extra second half juice. TD, BNS RY. Thanks for sharing.

      Glad to be fellow shareholders in common companies and we will be happy campers in those for sure 🙂 Yeah. I’m liking some of the Canadian companies like BNS, TD, RY and waiting for some pull back. Appreciate stopping by and commenting!
