Spring is finally in the air (no matter how cold it is where you live). March is officially over and you know what that means….baseball season is here! Oh wait, this is an investing blog. We mean that we all get the chance to put together our Dividend Income summary reports and find out how well we are progressing in this journey towards financial freedom. You all know the drill by now. Each month, we pull together a report of dividend income from many other bloggers in the community to see their progress! We wish we could summarize them all, trust us. Now, let’s take a look at how some of our fellow bloggers perform during March.
Dividend Income from YOU the BLOGgers
Note: We included a link to each bloggers monthly summary article. If you would like to read about their month further, which we highly recommend, click the link in their name!
Dividend Hustler – $2,729.07 – As always, we start off with a bang here. Hustler DESTROYED March 2016. After scrolling for a few minutes getting through the list of companies Hustler received dividends from, you can read some inspiring stuff. Always puts a smile on our faces and serves as a great pick-me-up. Keep on HUSTLING!
DivHut – $565.70 – 41%….not too bad. Are you kidding me?? Great month DivHut. DivHut said it best himself in the article. The “Dividends Don’t Lie.”
Race 2 Retirement – $882.56 – R2R said it himself in the article…HOLY MOLY. R2R set a new milestone in March as this was the first ever month that R2R received over $800 in dividend income. Congrats on crushing that milestone. You’ll be talking four figures before you know it!
Dividend Niche – $14.84 – Another record-setting month here. Dividend Niche is new to the dividend investing game and began his journey in July 2015. Some amazing progress is being made in a very short period of time. Niche is building a strong dividend portfolio with some great foundation dividend stocks. The best is yet to come my friend!
Investment Hunting – $784.66 – Personal records are being set left and right here. Everyone, we just CRUSHED it in March! There is one sentence from IH’s article that we would like to quote that summarizes it all up. “My dividend payout in March went from $54.09 in 2014, to 135.57 in 2015, to $784.66 in 2016.” Unreal. There is nothing more that really needs to be said about IH’s month or progress over the last few years.
Earn Money In Pajamas – $13.62 – EMIP is a fellow Swagbucker (We wrote a review of Swagbucks a long, long time ago!). One of your options once you receive enough Swagbucks is that you can cash out and receive a $25 deposit in Paypal. Well, EMIP is putting the cash out to good work and using the capital to purchase dividend stocks. EMIP is turning that free cash into income producing assets and now the benefits are really starting to show as EMIP’s 2016 dividend income total doubled after March!
Vivianne @ Well Rounded Investor – $878.07 – Would you take a 26.87% YOY increase? Heck yeah! Vivianne received dividends from an impressive list of companies this March. We are proud to consider ourselves fellow shareholders in T.Rowe Price, which we initiated a position in right before the ex-dividend date. Vivianne, for the record, neither of us have ever seen Larry Crowne, way to spoil the movie for us!! Kidding, kidding.
Dividend Life – $965 – DL crushed it this month and increased his dividend income 22% compared to the same time last month. So close to crossing into four digit territory!
Dividend for Starters – $74.08 – Boom! Can we say record March? YOU KNOW IT. 39% is no joke here, you are doing so well, in no time you may be changing your name to dividend for veterans! Also, great increase with Qualcomm (QCOM) – 10.41% divvy increase is nice! Keep it up.
Retire by 40 – $1,316 – We’ve been a huge follower for your blog, but whoa -crushing over $1.3K in dividends is incredible. I couldn’t agree with him more – the quarter ends are always fun in collection of the dividends! RB40 also experienced great net worth spikes due to the market climbing fairly strong during March, hence why it’s been more than 30 days since I’ve bought a stock. Very inspiring RB40!
Dividend Academy – $364.51 – Boom – the late add, but you’re in here Marco! Great job and cruising closer to $400 – you had quite a bit of players and awesome to see we share plenty of the same names in AFL, IBM, JNJ, INTC, LMT to name a few. Keep at it over there!
One word sums up our reaction perfectly…..unreal. All, the progress is real. If you want proof, read each respective investors’ summary article. Personal records were set like crazy this month and almost everyone had double-digit dividend investing growth rates. This is why we not only entered the game of dividend investing, but are crazy about it. Months like these are what fuel our fire and drive us towards financial freedom. The power of dividend investing is real! Now, let’s keep this momentum rolling through the second quarter and the rest of 2016!
