Dividend Income

Welcome to our Dividend Income page!

This is the page where we have listed our monthly dividend income totals over the years.  This is where we show the Wonderful World of Dividend Investing!

Our goal is to each have a portfolio that ultimately covers our monthly expenditures, in order to reach Financial Freedom.  We have both spent at least the last 8+ years consistently investing into dividend paying stocks, where we also use our Dividend Diplomat Stock Screener in order to find and invest into undervalued dividend stocks.

What Dividend Stocks are we purchasing?  Well, you can see from the list, we each have many dividend stocks in our respective portfolios.  However, especially if you are starting out, there are a few articles to read to know a few long-term Dividend Stocks that have been around for, what seems like, forever.  See our articles below on:
1.) Top 5 Foundation Dividend Stocks
2.) Bert’s 5 Always Buy Stocks

As we are taking each step towards Financial Freedom, there are many ways we are fueling that engine.  What other ways are we talking about?  We are talking about investing into Fundrise or even using Rakuten (formerly eBates) online, a rebate shopping application.

Each dollar fuels either more dividend income or provides cash back/savings for us, where we can use the funds to purchase Dividend Stocks.  Here is our Financial Freedom Products page to see more applications/products we use!

  1. Hi,
    both of your income streams are impressive! Congrats for beeing so comitted. I am somewhere in between both of your income streams.
    One thing I wanted to ask, Bert, is Lannys´ income a motivation or a demotivation or are both of you not thinking of it like a little competition?


  2. DD,
    Nice post! You guys are making great progress. Wow…A jump from $103 in July 2014 to $740 in July 2015 is very impressive for one year. I can’t wait to see what the numbers look like in 10 years. Keep in touch.

  3. Good data! I’ll have to start tracking my dividends as well, but I’m still at only a few hundred dollars per year. This really inspires me to invest more. Lots of good posts on your site too.

    • Retire Engineering –

      Though you are at a few hundred dollars per year, Bert and I each have been there. If you keep it up, stay consistent – you will be bringing in more than you can imagine. Stay motivated and stay positive, fruit will bear more fruit, believe me.


  4. Hey guys, you continue to inspire me and I look forward to your posts. Bert, please double-check your % gain calculation for your dividend portfolio above, I think your year over year increases are more than what’s stated.

  5. Hi Guys:
    I’m looking for some American Dividend blogs to review my book Your Ever Growing Income, US edition. If you would be interested email me and I’ll send you a pdf copy.
    Mark Seed of Myownadvisor.ca did the review of the Canadian edition.

  6. Hey! My first time seeing your webpage as a result of Seeking Alpha. Very nice! I’m only at about $300 average per month but it’s growing! Was wondering….. Do you reinvest your dividends? For those in my portfolio that are trading below the basis, I set my account to reinvest (since it’s a free transaction), which then helps get my basis down a penny or two. For those that are trading above my basis I put that amount into my pot for another purchase. Thanks! Will continue to track!

    • Bob,

      Thank you for the comment. Hopefully you will be commenting more often now. $300 a month is AWESOME! We do DRIP for the time being. When we are retired though, the DRIP will be turned off. I like your thought process and methodology though. Its smart to only DRIP the undervalued and pass on the overvalued. Definitely something for me to consider.

      Thanks again!

      • Well, exploring your website has certainly inspired me to start a blog somehow…. if I can learn how to do that!! My methodology is a little riskier, and it would be fun sharing and getting comments/suggestions like you are fortunate enough to do. Thanks again!

    • Ann –

      Great question. I know I (Lanny) have reinvested approximately $40-50K+ and have used my capital of around $250-300K or so over a LONG period. It’s quite amazing what returns and DRIP do : )
