February 2016 is in the books and you know what that means? The posts on dividend income from the month from YOU the bloggers! I love this time of the year and seeing everyone’s progress, the leaps, bounds, the ups, the downs and the big hitters for each month that we are receiving. It’s a great way to show the articles we read and how excited we are for every single pursuit – to financial freedom! Let’s see how everyone did during February!
Dividend income from you the bloggers!
DivHut – $478.27 – DH… whoa.. you crushed February, beat my dividend income and destroyed your prior year by 84%+. Congratulations! Further, you had quite a few companies with, Toronto-Dominion (TD), leading the way. Love the Canadian banks. Great job and excited for your March results!
RoadMap2Retire – $626.84 – RM, great job! Though this isn’t purely dividend revenue, as this contains blogging & advertising revenue; but seeing the vast amount of companies on your list is impressive. Have to enjoy seeing one of the foundation stocks on your list of AT&T (T).
DividendHustler – $1,899.77 – DAMN. I know you’ve been making your posts about taking it easy or “chillin”, BUT your dividend income stream definitely is NOT taking a back seat here. WOW… no more words. Just wow.
Investment Hunting – $270.39 – I see you coming in hot with AT&T (T), as well as Omega (OHI), with our favorite stock that cut their dividend – Kinder Morgan (KMI). VERY impressive month overall with big names. No doubt you’ll be over $400 this time next year. I liked your year over year charts, as it really puts things into perspective. Amazing growth, keep it up!
Dividend for Starters – $60.19 – BOOM! There we go, NICE JOB! You had triple the amount from the prior year, as well as experienced the beauty of the dividend growth rate with increases from Coke (KO), T. Rowe (TROW), which we purchased heavily recently and Walmart (WMT). Keep it up and keep investing!
Dividend Empire – $179.30 – DE – Making Moves! I see you also, sadly, were hurt and stung by Kinder Morgan’s (KMI) dividend cut last fall. Damn. I know what it feels like. Let’s get back up and keep walking forward, it’s all going to be okay. Keep investing.
A Frugal Family Journey – $156.33 – Definitely are deep within the telecommunications. That’s alright, though, it’s a cash cow. People depend on their phones and internet, it’s amazing. Cable TV.. ehh… still here but keep milking the cash AFFJ!
Captain Dividend – $292.68 – Okay, Okay, VERY nice. Almost crossed me and I bet you soon will. You are doing very well and are staying consist here. I think everyone touts the AT&T (T) stock here; as yours was approximately 1/3 of your entire month! Keep an eye out for that, but congratulations, nonetheless, solid month!
Tawcan – $1,004.29 – Coming in swinging to wrap up our list! Definitely KILLED it this month. I know we are all inspired by and hustler above, your numbers are screaming here! BIG congratulations, as well, on… YOUR FIRST TIME CROSSING $1,000!!!!!! Amazing, SUCH a good feeling, that I hope everyone gets to taste sooner rather than later. Congratulations Tawcan!
CONGRATULATIONS EVERYONE!!! Two months now under the belt and I have seen some fantastic numbers. I want to say primarily everyone had Year over Year (YOY) growth and that is EXACTLY what us bloggers, investors, pursuers of financial freedom – want to see, and of course, the goal to see that happen regardless if you purchase or buy more investments or not. One would think dividend increases should make this go up, anyways, eh? I digress… another month is in the books and you guys did it. Congratulations. Keep it up and let’s make the last two and a half weeks of the quarter count! Excited to catch up soon and feel free to leave us comments! Thanks again everyone and good luck!
