I achieved four digit plus figure in total passive dividend Income: $1058.52 to be precise. It was lower than last quarter but still out of park as compared to last May.  That’s awesome. It only shows the power of Dividend Income engine.

  1. Hi PM,

    as always pretty impressive numbers. If you keep up this pace it won’t be long and you’re dividend income top’s 18k per year…
    My div income in may was 711$ (record high, but may is special, cause some firms in my portfolio pay their dividends once a year)
    Right now i’m a little cautious pumping significant money into this raging bull. But i consider adding some Omega Healthcare Investors…


    1. Hi DividendSolutions,

      Great job right there, that’s awesome. You are not too far away from $1K figure as well. Fully agree, this bull market is now 2nd longest and refuse to take break, we will see.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. Congrats on the great month PIM! You are already over 50% towards your goal of receiving $12k in dividends, and you haven’t even hit June yet. These are some impressive and inspiring numbers. Congrats on the progress and love seeing all those blue chippers in your portfolio.


    1. Hi Bert,

      Appreciate the kind wishes. It has been a long slog towards four figure journey. Absolutely, its motivating to see the progress of all the bloggers in this FI journey. I thought of bumping up my target a little but I left it for this year, we will see next year.

  3. Awesome job mavericks. You really are crushing it. We’ve got close to similar goals for this year (12k v 13k), but you are much farther along than me at this point! I think I can make up a lot of ground in the second half of this year. We’ll see!

    1. Hi PassiveIncomeDude,

      Absolutely, there is still more than half year left to cover the ground. Good luck on your goals. I’m sure you can achieve it, just keep working on it: little here and little there and before you know it, you are on your way towards your target.

  4. Congrats on hitting that magic four digit mark. Seeing many great names paying you just goes to show that even boring “old school” companies can help you pay the bills. Looks like you are well on your way to hitting your $12k goal for the year. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hi DivHut,

      Thank you. Old school companies are not boring at all 🙂 and they can help us to be FI. $12K looks within reach this year if the companies do not disappoint. You are doing great and congrats on a nice growth over there.
