Dividend Income Update – May 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.

I scored more than double hundred in total passive dividend Income: $218.24 to be precise. This month alone, my dividend income was more than 22.03% compared to last Feb and out of park as compared to last May, over 400%. 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.

I want to own securities of Blue chip Aristocrats (companies with 25+ yrs of growing earnings) and Dividend Champions. Once the earned passive dividend income covers all my expenses, I will own my time as well and truly free from 9 to 5 tread mill.

I’d setup a goal of earning $3500.00 in total passive dividend income for this year and have received total of $1335.40, 38.15% of target. I’m hoping  my passive dividend income for next month would be blockbuster and cover some more ground to achieve target.

I’ve added few new names to my portfolios this year like BBL, T, KMI, OHI, RDS.B in DRIP account, DLR, JNJ, OKE, PM, SO in taxable account, WPC in Roth IRA. Total count of securities along with ETFs is getting closer to 50 right now.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

How did your Dividend Income come along the month of May. Closing in to target?

Thanks for reading.

  1. Over 400% heck yea!! I hit around 85% growth yoy ($250 total) but nothing compared to you! Keep up the great work. Adding all those new companies to your portfolio will certainly push you down the road to FI that much quicker!

    1. Hi ADD,

      85% growth yoy is awesome. I started out with a small base and so, my yoy growth are little skewed and will start to moderate.

      I’m putting more capital to work this month as some of the securities like REITs and O&G companies have corrected between 20-30%. Good time to be buying.

  3. Hey,
    I know this is your dividend income update but do you track your “online income” monthly also? Since you hit $1,000 in 2014 and set a goal of $1,500 in 2015 it would be nice to see an update on how far you’ve gotten. Hope you get to $3,500 this year also.
    Cheers,

    1. Hi RF,

      I’m glad to share the dividend passive income updates and have been thinking about tracking online income. Right now, its a small portion and would not be as big as compared to dividend income and so, try to focus on tracking it. But, it’s a great idea and will consider it. Appreciate the kind words and my goal of $3500 is looking little aggressive at this point of time. But, we will see when it arrives 🙂
