Monthly Dividend Income – October 2017

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 crossed 4 digit mark in total passive dividend income: $1488.63 to be precise and second highest ever. It was little over Sept month but out of park as compared to last Oct. 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 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 $12000.00 in total passive dividend income this year and drum beat guys… received total of $13188.63 and smashing the target in style 🙂 Nov and Dec passive income will be all gravy on the top.

Full Disclosure: Long in all above mentioned securities.

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

Thanks for reading.

  1. What can I say other than… Amazing! Four digits for a quite month, beating your $1K a month goal for dividend income by a lot. Your portfolio is running on all cylinders. Enjoy the Nov. and Dec. gravy!

  2. Almost $1.5K is a pretty impressive total. There are quite a few people in the FI community that have monthly expenses less than that. Onward an upward!
