Monthly Dividend Income – April 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: $740.08 to be precise. Passive dividend income was more than 46.9% compared to Jan quarter and out of park as compared to last April, over 140%. That’s awesome and crossing $700 third  time felt great. 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 like 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.

I’d setup a goal of earning $7500.00 in total passive dividend income this year and so far have received $2823.13. The month of April was great for me and put me over $700 that I’m glad to share.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

How did your Dividend Income come along this month of April?

Thanks for reading.

    1. Hi Dear Dividend,

      Appreciate stopping by. Much appreciated! This month was another $700+ that I’m happy to book it. Now, looking forward to a month when it hits that magic mark of $1K: that will be really awesome feat to achieve.

  1. Holy crap!!! That’s a huge figure for an April income report. Nice to see things are moving along with your portfolio income. I already know your portfolio holds many solid aristocrat names like mine. Stick with the solid known payers and really limit your divvy cut/elimination risk. I like!! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      Holding solid aristocrats and champions make life a little easier for us 🙂 My 2nd or 3rd lesson learnt when I sold Seagate Technology (STX) recently due to secular risks hanging over on this company. A stock has a high yield for a reason and this is a grim reminder from KMI, COP, STX, and many others.

    1. Hi R2R,

      Appreciate the kind words. Yeah, I’m looking for that mysterious, magical and awesome $1000 number in a month and ready to cork it out when it happens. Achieving $1K will propel me in that category of having arrived. No, seriously, it’ll be a huge achievement and much to cherish, we’ll see.
