July dividend income figures may not pack the same punch and dollar amounts that June has to offer, but that doesn’t mean that we all weren’t making moves and CRUSHING IT during July. Almost every dividend income report we read during the month saw some form of major progress, personal records, or discussed how movers were made to increase future dividend income! To echo the point we made last month, we are doing everything we can to get through as many dividend income articles as we can each month. If you aren’t included in our monthly summary, it doesn’t mean we didn’t read your article and your exclusion is definitely not personal. It is just a time thing! With that being said, it is time to check out our July Dividend Income summary from all of YOU in the dividend growth investing community.
Captain Dividend – $322.88 – Killing it! Looks like we (Lanny) crossed the $300 mark together this month, with a lot of the same names in Philip Morris (PM) Kraft (KHC) and Glaxo (GSK). Keep the snowball a rolling!
Zero to Zeroes – $95.49. – Woah, almost crossing the $100 mark. One tidbit of the article stood out to me and had me really excited. The fact that Alex surpassed the 2015 dividends received total this month. That’s nuts! Best part is you still have five more months to keep on building and increase your personal record that much more. CONGRATS!
Dividend Vet – $113.64 – Just a tiny 20% dividend growth rate compared to the same month last year. Heck yeah! I love the list of rock solid companies that paid a visit to the Vet this month…KO, PM, KMB, and O just to name a few. Now that is a great list of companies, why do I (Bert) only own one of them?? haha
Tawcan – $1,066.97 – Another four digit month, man you are killing it Tawcan! It is very impressive, especially considering the fact that the first month of the quarter is typically the slowest. Great work as always Tawcan! P.S. Love getting to see a funny Dilbert image every month when we open your income article up.
Divhut – $373.48 – This one is personal. Keith was getting on my (Bert) case about my use of “boring” during my monthly dividend income article. I never said boring was a bad thing Keith! Boring Dividend Investing = Happy Dividend Investing. Enjoy the rest of your gold coast trip!
Dividend for Starters – $46.46 – How would you feel about receiving a 204% raise compared to last year? Why don’t you tell us DfS. HOLY SMOKES that is an awesome dividend growth rate. Nice job DfS!!
New to Dividends – $211.46 – Another impressive dividend increase…179% compared to last year. The best part was the jump from double digit dividend income to over $200. Plus, you received dividends from quite the strong group of companies.
Pollies Dividend – € 587.68 ($ 656.92) – I would definitely say that you received a “super dividend” from one of your companies. Man are we jealous that you received that from your company and trust us, we remember that feeling from last July when we received the special Kraft-Heinz dividend! Even without the special dividend, Pollie showed a great 29% dividend growth rate compared to last year.
Dividends Down Under – $7.46 – getting paid, here we go! Everything counts and owning 2 more shares of a company via dividend re-investment is just awesome and helps push the income forward. Keep it going!
My Dividend Pipeline – $0 – I put this not because it is $0, but seriously it is going to share that you are going to be on a tear here in the upcoming months. Your dividends are going to be burning some oil soon/asap and it is going to be intense, we all should be on the watch out!
Dividend Hustler – $1,987.80 – Just killing it here. Hustler has been on the grind for a while and there is no end in sight for him, at all. He is a huge fan of the Canadian stocks and you can tell, by evidence of the dividends he collected in July. Congrats!
Dividend Niche – $13.40 – First off, congrats on the one year anniversary of the Niche Fund DN. Getting ready to see the dividend snowball start rolling?? Niche’s income came predominately from the Canadian Bank sector this month, which has some great dividend paying powerhouses. Can’t wait to see what year 2 has in store Niche!
Be Smart Rich – $794 – Welcome to the $200k club Be Smart Rich! Take a look at the chart, wow did your market value spike up quickly. And then on top of that, you receive a huge sum of dividend income. Amazing stuff!
American Dividend Dream – $425.20 – ADD with a very solid month, posting a 23% YOY dividend growth rate. Gotta love any dividend article that starts off with a Ray Charles quote, that is how you set the tone for success right there!
Dividend Hawk – $772.74 – Another investor bit by the lack of a Kraft-Heinz special dividend. But that’s didn’t stop Dividend Hawk from posting a sick dividend income total for the month! Boom.
There we have it….our July Dividend Income summary. Told all of you that the community is doing some amazing things; however, you already probably know that already! Now, let’s hope the market decides to continue cooling off in August and create some buying opportunities so we can turn our Watch List into actual purchases. Lanny has three great stocks he is itching to buy on his August Watch List, so let’s keep our fingers crossed so he can increase his position in them! Now, onward and upward. Can’t wait for this summary in August!
-Lanny and Bert, the Dividend Diplomats
