INSANITY.  What more can we say?  This community received over $40k in dividend income this month.. ARE YOU SERIOUS?   2018 has been an incredible year for some many reasons.  We are all receiving great dividend increases based on the impact of tax policies, and as Lanny highlighted in an article last month, the impact is really starting to be felt.   On top of that, the power of dividend investing and the fact that we continue to make EVERY DOLLAR COUNT helps fuel out dividend fire.   Let’s make the most out of the second half of the year everyone and continue to push ourselves.  Look how many records were set this month?  Let’s continue this trend throughout the second half of the year!

  1. Impressive month by everyone!

    As Tom mentioned above, thanks as always for putting this together. Much appreciated!

    And maybe the Cavs can learn a thing or two about putting a team together… I know the Browns have been at it for a while as well. (I hope Mrs. BD doesn’t see this…)


    • Mike,

      Thank you very much. We love putting this article together and it is a great way to monitor and track everyone’s progress.
      I must say, I don’t know if the Browns are the right model in Cleveland for putting a team together haha I won as many football games as they did last year. Sure, they made a lot of great moves this offseason, but I will always be skeptical until the season begins and we see the results are on the field. Now the Indians on the other hand. That is a franchise model I would follow. They have the right blend of building for the future but not being afraid to capitalize on their championship window while it is open. Lets see if these last two trades will be enough to put the team over the top!


  2. Hi. .dvd

    Keep going on.
    Happy weekend

  3. Fellas, you have outdone yourselves once again. Great report and thank you for taking the time to do this every month. It’s exciting and inspiring to see everyone doing so well. Some of those numbers are eye-popping. Keep up the great work!

    • FIREMan –

      No problemo! Released it after 3 weeks, to at least have 10 days of July left. Hope this gives enough time for everyone to take it all in before July finished! Talk soon FM!


    • TFC,

      Thank you for stopping by and the comment! We are always scouring the web, FI community, and followers for new articles to include each month. We will do our best to stop by for the July edition of this article 🙂


  4. Wow, that is one impressive month turned in by the DGI community from top to bottom! It is great to see everyone’s hard work paying off and people setting new records, and just how powerful this approach can be with time and consistency.

    Thank you very much for including me in the roundup as well, it is an honor to be included among such great bloggers and DGI community members! The time you spend putting this together is greatly appreciated on multiple fronts, from inspiration in seeing what others are achieving to finding new members of the community to follow along with.

  5. Wow, these are some serious numbers. Nice to see everybodies progress in one unified post. Thanks Bert and Lanny for the compiling this awesome list. I love being able to see the communities progress as a whole. Cannnot wait to get my income numbers close to some of these up here.

    Thanks guys,

    • Of course. We love putting this post together and are happy to take the time to aggregate all of this information. Yes they are Dr. Dividend! I’m still blown away the community had over $40k in income this month.


  6. It’s very convenient to be able to see the results of the DGI community as a whole in one post as drDividend stated. The most exciting thing that I’ve found with dividend growth investing is that these numbers will continue to increase, and the impact of dividend raises/reinvestment along with the addition of new capital will only magnify the income of the community. Bert and Lanny, thanks for compiling this list. It is interesting to track the progress of others in the community, and I have discovered so many other great blogs through these posts.

    • Kody,

      Welcome! I believe this is your first time commenting. We’re excited to get to know you a little more. I couldn’t agree more about your dividend growth comment and that’s why we love doing it. This community is awesome and kicking some serious butt. I’m glad you have been able to find plenty of new blogs as well.

      Take care,


  7. Is it just me or do all the numbers this month seem extra large. I know it’s an end of quarter month but still… there just seemed to be a lot of four digits and high three digit postings for the month. Congrats to all. Can you imagine what our collective dividend income will be if these posts continue for another few years? Keeps me revved up for the second half of 2018!

    • DH –

      Thanks for the comment and they do, right? They’re getting to be insane. What’s cool is the new members to the community. Think about this though – how great have the dividend increases been? This has to be feeling the impact from those, now, you know? What a year.


  8. Thanks for including me into the list as always. What a great month. The list keeps growing and so does the dividends. We are all making such great progress. Keep it up!
