As the tradition continues, each month we aggregate a list to show how other bloggers in the Dividend Investing community are CRUSHING IT! We are doing the best we can in reading articles during the busy summer months – so by no means if you aren’t on here doesn’t mean that we did not read your article or will read your article, just at the time of reading we added it to the list. Bert is over here killing it on his 2nd quarter goals, already, as well as having the best day of his life, ever. The Cavs (YES YES YES!) won an NBA championship and you can say our city of Cleveland is still in celebration mode. With that being said – see our June Dividend Income summary from the blogging community.
Dividend Hustler – $3,012.71 – Another insane month from Hustler! UNREAL! We on this website about the benefits of investing in amounts over $3,000…well, Hustler accomplished that through DRIP alone. The income figures were great, but the best part of the article is the part where Hustler talks about the positive impact dividend investing has had on his life and relationship with his wife. The numbers are great, but that is truly some inspiring stuff!
DivGro – $1,338.27 – Ferdi nearly doubled up on dividend income compared to last year. I think Ferdi received dividends from more companies than I (Bert own) haha One cool nugget from the article is that Ferdi is already 88% towards achieving the 2016 dividend income received mark during the year. Looks like you will be setting a new, adjusted dividend income goal soon!
New to Dividends – $450.49 – Check this annual dividend income dividend growth rate out. Not 100%, not 200%, not 300%, but 463%…ARE YOU KIDDING ME! Great stuff New to Dividends. I would say you are off to a great start haha
Zero to Zeros – $132.34 – A record setting month here, blowing past the previous mark by 25%! Zero to Zeros received a nice special dividend from Main Street Capital during the month, which is huge. Who doesn’t love receiving a bonus check in addition to your regular dividend payment? Congrats, this was one of many future record breaking months!
More Dividends – $29.95 – More Dividends made some moves in June. Opening a twitter account, publishing on Seeking Alpha for the first time, and getting in a heated Twitter discussion about 401k/IRA plans with Lanny! More Dividends, like many here, set a personal record in dividend income for the month….Nice job MD!
Special Agent Dividend – $105.90 – A solid month of dividend income that put Special Agent Dividend over the $100 for the second time! Love the fact that the first name on the list was Target, which both of us purchased during the month (Lanny purchase summary here and Bert purchase summary here).
Time in the Market – $1,161.49 – WHOA! Crossing the $1K with me – loving it – also, interesting take on the hourly wage, keep it up and congrats!
Earn Money in Pajamas – $18.82 – Almost to the $20 mark here. He has some powerful name brand companies in the portfolio, so no doubt the snowball will be rolling in. Congrats, stay focused and persistent!
Roadmap2Retire – $1,151.07 – ALL TIME HIGH!!! Big congrats, as I’m sitting in the same seat with you Roadmap. Keep grinding and building that mountain you have there!
DivHut – $573.95 – Whoa, there we go!! Killer month you had over there. HUGE jump in your taxable account, great to see, over 40% growth! The most interesting piece is that Aflac (AFL) is your big banger this month, which it takes a lot of shares to get there, love the aristocrat. Congrats on the month DH!
Dividend Pig – $386.43 – Record month for you as well? 34 companies paying? Talk about an army that you have back there, just awesome! oh… and a measly 236% growth rate to boot, not too bad, haha… congrats on the month!
InvestmentHunting – $830.31 – YOU DID IT! You crossed your $800 mark/goal for the month. Killer. Looks like you stayed true to your name – “hunting” down the dividends and grabbing them. Congrats!
The Frugal Cottage – $7.39 – Nice job FC! Looks like you are starting out and building that snowball. Good luck on reaching the $100 for the year, stay focused!
Well Rounded Investor – $744.26 – HOLY CRAP! Wells Fargo (WFC) and Bank of America (BAC) are just destroying it for you, WOW! Keep it up, stellar numbers there.
Dividend Cash Flow – $70.24 – Very, very nice! I remember when I started getting closer and closer to $100 when I started, SUCH a fun and exciting feeling. You’re doing great, keep it up, some solid aristocrats in there, including some from the top 5 foundation dividend stocks for investors!
I Want to retire Soon – $156.85 – Fairly evenly spread, I may say. Looks like we share quite a few names in JNJ, Shell (RDS), Archer Daniels (ADM), Mcdonalds (MCD), Target (TGT) and the list goes on. With this type of portfolio – your income will grow steadily, regardless. Congrats on a nice quarter end month!
The Stock Fox – ~$1,150 – With this sort of income, one can become fairly close to retiring, hands fricken down! Nice job Stock Fox, keep out there on the prey!
The Millennial Budget – $29.50 in Dividend Income, $189 in net income – Stefan started dividend investing two months ago and is already starting to see the results! Highly recommend checking out this monthly post as Stefan not only discusses his dividend income but his blog income as well!
Here we go now! Looks like June was an awesome month for quite a few people, including ourselves (Lanny setting a new record and Bert dominating his June), the community is on fire! Could it be due to the Cavs bringing the trophy home and the “WIndians” taking care of the central division? One can only hope. The summer months definitely are heating up – and I hope it catches all of our portfolios on fire to bring in more dividends and increase our forward looking income. Congratulations everyone, hope you are enjoying summer and had a nice July 4th! Take care everyone and looking forward to the comments.
