More Dividends – $35.16 – It is very cool that you show the individual dividends received each year since 2015. It is a great way to show your progress; especially given the fact that you receive a dividend from just one company in 2015. Look how far you have come!

Healthcare with Cardinal Health (CAH) and even consumer products with Coke (KO). Keep it up and we want to see over $100 next April!
Mr. Free @ 33 – $893.36 – Bodda bing! Nice job Jason and your growth rate of 15% is something we should all take a look at. Why? You have LIMITED your investment purchase activity over the last few years. Dividend growth at it’s finest. In addition, it took almost 3 scrolls to review ALL of your stocks that paid YOU. Loving it! Congrats and keep going, 4 digits next year.

Tawcan – $1,914.01 – Not too far behind, but another amazing month Tawcan. Almost $2,000 in April is astonishing. Further, your growth rate is 24% for April and we are talking big figures here. At this pace, you will be well over $2,000 for April 2020. I may go on a whim and predict $2,500. Glad we share Canadian Imperial (CM), that’s for sure!

Dividend Stacker – $294.18 – Keep on stacking those dividends. That massive dividend from Altria for the month and that no doubt helped fuel your growth rate. Even without it, dividend increases have helped as well.
Dividend Pig – $757.18 – What a list of dividend paying companies right their Pig! Ignore the fact that you missed out on the BEN special dividend this year. Your regular paying dividend income just crushed it.
Broke Investor – 78.33 Euro – Broke Investor received a HUGE dividend from TKM this month. We’re not even going to try to pronounce that company’s name. But BI’s article shows an interesting way of breaking down each expense.
Dividend Earner – $1,959 – Whoa, whoa. Nearly $2,000 in dividend income right there. Clearly, you are making some SERIOUS moves. You achieve a 20% dividend growth rate with a very high dividend base from last year. Now that’s impressive!
Fiscal Voyage – $482.65 – Dividend income makes up less than 1/2 of FV’s passive income totals. That’s insanity right there. Anytime you can increase your passive income 100% compared to last year, you know it is going to be great.
Engineering Dividends – $617.99 – This was quite the way to record your 100th blog post, right ED? What’s awesome is that you had four companies pay you over $50 this month in dividends. Your income wasn’t too top heavy!

My Dividend Pipeline – $648.30 – MDP, I did remove the CD income from Amegy! However, almost $650 in dividend income is awesome and I hope Tuppereware (TUP) and GE come back full force with their dividends. We already share the powerhouse dividends from Philip Morris (PM), that’s for sure.
Total: 53 Bloggers Received $39,207.56 in Dividends in April (depending on the exchange rate used at the time of the calculation).
There we have it folks! Another incredible month that the dividend investor community did significantly well. Further, almost everyone had a better April in 2019 than 2018. The trifecta for contributions to making that happen is consistency in investing, dividend increases and, for some, dividend reinvestment! We say it every month, but we are always amazed and inspired by everyone’s growth and progress.
Let’s continue to make EVERY DOLLAR COUNT and continue to crush it. We still have 2/3 left of the year to make an impact. What are you waiting for? Now, let’s get out there and make some moves!
