Its time for me to post dividend income earned from my portfolios: DRIP, DIP, & 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 achieved four digit plus figure in total passive dividend Income: $1214.98 to be precise. It was almost 15% more than last quarter. 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 $12000.00 in total passive dividend income for this year and received total of $14403.07 so far, crossing the target last month itself.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

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

  1. I noticed one CEF in your list. They are different then your blue chip aristocrats but offer some great yields. How do you feel about them and are you seeking more?

    1. Hi Jame,

      Yes, I’ve a CEF in my portfolio: I feel good about CEFs as they are a small percentage of total and have high yield. I’ve been thinking to add a little more but feel that price is elevated, just like most other securities: waiting for correction to occur.

    1. Hi Bert,

      Appreciate much liking my investment strategy and the holdings. I’m planning to consolidate my DRIP account to DIP account so that I do not need to maintain same securities in multiple accounts. There will be some changes to my portfolio next year.

      Thanks for stopping by as always and commenting!

    1. Hi IJFJ,

      Thank you. It was amazing to have crossed the target last month and it gives impetus to setting up yet another ambitious target next year, we will see 🙂 Yeah, running on the same treadmill from 9 to 5 for many-2 years is not fun for sure and looking forward to the day when I’ll be FI.

    1. Hi DAH,

      It was fantastic last month and look forward to close the year with a bang, having achieved my target before schedule: could not ask for more. My DRIP and DIP accounts are all taxable investment accounts. I’ve also separate 401k/IRA account but do not add them towards my FI journey as I cannot take out money for distribution prior to retirement age. In order to be FI, my passive taxable income needs to support all my expenses.
