Monthly Dividend Income – August 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.

Wow! I scored over $1000+ in total passive dividend Income for the first time: $1069.01 to be precise . This month, my dividend income was more than 24.87% compared to last May and out of park as compared to last Aug, over 239%.That’s awesome and crossing $1000 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.

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 $7500.00 in total passive dividend income for this year and received total of $6249.83. This month of Aug was superb for me as I crossed $1000+ and highest ever score so far!

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

How did your Dividend Income come along in month of Aug?

  1. That is a very impressive month with some great yoy growth. Is there any particular reason why you have some holdings in multiple portfolios? I look forward to seeing how your Sept. turns out compared to August. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi MD,

      As I’ve different accounts, I need to fill them with right set of companies and try to make these companies as distinct as possible, but, some have been there prior and some due to tax implication considerations.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. I bet earning four figures passively felt great. Congrats on a great milestone. As always, a solid list of companies paying you for the month. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      Thank you. No question about that. Crossing $1K was a huge milestone for me that I’ve waiting for so many years and working so hard. It was also a sigh of relief as well. I’m looking to add few more companies, but, market has been red-hot and getting increasingly difficult to find good value.

    1. Hi R2R,

      I saw that: man, you’ve been really kicking the sand up high in the air that can be seen from a long distance 🙂 Congrats on your growth over there with over $1.5K.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  3. PIM,

    WHOA WHOA WHOA!! Congrats on your best month ever!! THIS IS SICK! Cannot believe you also crossed $1K in an off-month, just incredible. Great companies you own. You’ll be flying over that goal, for sure. Congrats again.

    1. Hi Lanny,

      Appreciate the kind words! Ha, this is really sick 🙂 Crossing $1K felt like touching a big rubicon of success and compounding machine running at full gear. You are also kicking the gear with your TGT buy, keep up the great work over there.

    1. Hi DAH,

      Absolutely, it was a big haul that required a heavy-duty truck to tow 😉 It requires hard work in the beginning and afterwards, you can enjoy the fruits of labor at beach or pool. Machine is primed indeed and we’ll see how Sept turns out.

    1. Hi Chris,

      Thank you. If you look my income few yrs back, it was just paltry and see what few yrs have done. I’m sure you will reach this income, keep at it. Good luck in your FI journey.
