Despite the fact that February is the coldest for many of us Midwesterners and Canadians, the dividends came in HOT! In February, the stock market continued its impressive hot streak, leaving us with many stocks with high valuations and shorter, and shorter, dividend stock watch lists. With the month well behind us and the articles released by the community, it is time for our favorite monthly post! We try to summarize the growth and progress towards FIRE for as many individuals as possible. Here is the February installment of our dividend income from YOU the bloggers series!

Desidividend – $298.97 – So close to $300, agh! Also, a 20% increase is solid. The AT&T (T) had a nice jump, and you have to love that yield.
Dividend Guy Blog – $270.84 – Nice work, per usual. No sweat on the special divvy, just keep pushing forward and your March is about to be killer. Invest when you have cash and capital and keep making fricken moves. GET IT SON!

Snug Fortune – $102.70 – Year over year growth of 62% SF. You are on a TEAR so far in 2019. First a 288% YOY increase in January and now this. Looks like the best is yet to come in 2019.
Reverse the Crush – $22.37 – Our comment about your article is actually going to be a quote from your article, because it demonstrates your growth perfectly: “I’ve already received $16.86 more than I did during the entire year of 2017. It also won’t be too long before I’m reporting that I’ve surpassed 2018.” Great job RTC!
Data Science’s Financial Independence – $173.07 – Boom. Dividends were received from only 3 companies this month. A short list that is simple and straight to the point. Excellent work DSFI!

I Want Dividend – 126.17 Euros – Did we count that correctly in your article….you received 10 dividend increases during the month? No wonder you continue to post ridiculous dividend growth rates!
My Road to Wealth and Freedom – $898 – That 170% increase from last year is incredible! What is fun to read in this report is that dividend income represents such a small portion of MRWF’s total passive income totals for the month!
Investing Pursuits – $228.47 – Just a slight decrease compared to last year. But overall, still a great month of dividends received IP!
Money Maaster – $307.78 – Our favorite two words. Record Month! Jordan absolutely destroyed February. In addition to investing activities, Jordan had a lot of fun life activities as well!

Dividend Meter – $691.14 – No joke, crushing February like it’s a hot pizza out of the box. Averaging over $80 in dividends per payer this month and he was active in trying to increase his forward dividend income. Keep the meter running.
A Frugal Family’s Journey – $354.12 – That Kinder Morgan (KMI) dividend is growing, that’s for sure! I hope that General Mills (GIS) dividend stays strong and solid for ya. Almost to $500, keep trucking along.

Dividend Daze – $171.45 – Here is a recipe for over doubling your dividend compared to last year: double your T position, add to ABBV, and have HCP pay in February this year compared to March last year. Daze came out swinging with the heavy hitters in 2019!
Tawcan – $1,695.76 – WHOA! Hold the breaks here, insane! The amounts you are bringing in, leaves us speechless. Bravo Tawcan! With that income, I’d be financially free, agh, so amazing.

My Dividend Pipeline – $1,052.10 – Another team member crossing 4 digits in February, congrats M D P! Further, you have quite a bit coming from your Vanguard Bond Fund ETF (VBMFX), as I see you balancing it out. For those that want to know more about Vanguard, we wrote about them here.

Dividend Hawk – $1,002.97 – Another 4 digit banger in February. Of course we share Kinder Morgan (KMI), AT&T (T) and CVS (CVS) to name a few. However, you have an impressive list of monthly payers, which has to feel nice to see that cash flow each and every month.
Mr. Free @ 33 – $942.82 – Again, the scroll of the page is insane! You have a lot of high quality businesses that I haven’t had the opportunity to find the right price, such as Texas Instruments (TXN) and Air Products Chemical (APD). Keep inspiring and growing that freedom fund!
Divvy Dad – $547.47 – A solid month Divvy D! I know it’s been quiet, but your growth has been amazing from prior year. Apple (AAPL) is higher and that looks like it’s reinvestment and dividend increases alone. Further your Abbott (ABT) looks to be doing the same. Further, 9 dividend increases are incredible – if only we could have at least that much, each month, eh?
Dividend Snail – $254.71 – Another investor that received a new dividend from ABBV in 2019 compared to 2018. The company continues to remain popular in the dividend investing community and lead the charge for insane dividend growth rates.

Dividend Vet – $270.78 – KMI, T, PG, O, and Starbucks are names that we share in common with you Vet. It is great to see that we share so many great investments that contributed to your successful February.
Passive Income Vortex – $318.08 – The telecom sector crushed it for Passive Income Vortex this month. Those dividends received by AT&T and Verizon were just insane. On top of it, nice dividend increases from AXP and ABT.
Little Dividends – $99.50 – Man, oh so close to cracking the $100 mark in February. You should get there in May due to dividend re-investment alone!
Fiscal Voyage – $643.11 – Felix’s strong start to 2019 continues, as he has posted GREAT year-over-year increases in January February. That’s how you set the right tone for 2019 our friend!

Dividend Gremlin – $286.21 – Gremlin’s house party continues to strike! The dividend increases continue to make a difference each month and it is a lot of fun watching Gremlin’s dividends grow.
Dividend Rider – $198.54 – Love the chart format to summarize dividend income. That was a lot of dividend income received from just a few positions. Keep at it Rider!
Get Rich Brothers – $54.41 – Ryan has a set of plane tickets and a hotel reservation for Omaha in hand for a certain company’s shareholder meeting. The $54.41 of dividends received this month may not have covered the cost, but I’m sure it made a dent in the price.
Kody’s Dividend – $43.09 – Kody, Kody, Kody. Getting us excited for baseball season in the post (and unfortunately, we are watching the NBA playoffs from the sidelines here in Ohio after four great years). Regardless, excellent dividend month!
Engineering Dividends – $679.04 – Back to back months of achieving 30% YOY growth rate. Heck yeah ED! What’s cool is that you received dividend from 15 companies this month and all but one of the companies paid a dividend that was greater than $20.
Dividend Dozer – $83.57 – A very solid increase compared to February last year for Dozer. Like so many others, the name ABBV sticks out in your sea of dividends received during the month.

Folks, incredible, just freaking incredible. That is an average of $445.69 per blogger this month. All of that in an “off” month during the year. We’ve been putting this article together for several years now and are continued to be blow away by the hustle, grind, grit, and hard work of this community. Seriously, you all inspire us to keep saving every dollar and investing everything we can to reach financial freedom as soon as possible. Let’s end this the same way we have ended every month over the years. All, let’s continue to make EVERY DOLLAR COUNT and continue to crush it. We have 10 months to go in 2019. Let’s get after it!!
