As I’m sure you all know, each month we aggregate a list to show how other bloggers in the Dividend Investing community are CRUSHING IT! This month, one of us got excited (**cough cough Lanny**) and set a record for a number of bloggers included in this list. It blew April’s bloggers summary out of the water! Time to brew up a cup of coffee (maybe Starbucks) and get ready to check out some results! See our May Dividend Income summary from the blogging community.
Dividend Diatribes – $255.18 – DAYUM! Nice work there buddy – killed it with AT&T (T) and OKE. Nice. Also – watch out for the high yields on your watch list – they more than likely… aren’t sustainable. Good luck!
No More Waffles – $142.93 – Plenty of waffles here with the $142.93 received this past month (in Euro); big names on the list that can make some pretty heft waffles, and even pancakes if you want. We all love pancakes. Come on and keep it up!
Dear Dividend – $24.06 – Few aristocrats in there and the wheels are starting to turn for you. I think $24 is a solid month and could come close to covering my internet bill now (Lanny’s is at $24.99 after slashing it a few months ago). Nice job!
My Dividend Pipeline – $115.00 – Uh oh – he is back on the map and ready to bring it on!! MDP is making a splash and collected all of this from one entity – HCP – which reinvested in another 3.5 shares to produce EVEN MORE cash flow next quarter. Funny enough – his next quarter will be even more massive. Keep it up MDP, glad to have you back.
Retire By 40 – $712 .00 – There we go RB40! Don’t worry about the goal as of now – you have June to sprout your YTD income total up WAY high! Also – your other goals and missions are an inspiration. Keep it up and continue to keep us posted!
Dividend Hustler – $2,300.33 – Umm…. where is my jaw at again? HOLY CRAP! Dude… just murdering it here! Wow. Seems like you like Canadian bank stocks eh? I think you earned majority of that from that industry! Seems to be working out for you. I’d be retired with that sort of cash flow. DAMN!
Wallet Squirrel – $25.01 – Nice job! Making your way up, especially when this is an off-month. Thank you again for writing about your other forms of income. I still think you have one of the best looking sites out there!
DivHut – $524.91 – The winning combination of Canadian banks and Healthcare REITs have pumped up your dividend this month and provided an astounding 63.6% increase from May of 2015. Just killing it! Consistency and forward-looking has been key!
Happy Healthy & Wealth Girl – $104.10 – Looks like she was stung by the Kinder Morgan (KMI) bug as well, It’s OKAY – perseverance and forward looking is what it takes. Keep your head up, and keep purchasing high quality businesses!
Zero to Zeros – $101.54 – Omega (OHI) is a big banger for you here, pumping you with more than half your amount! With consistent new purchases, reinvestment and increases – hopefully overtime that large percentage drops a little! Great job.
A Frugal Family Journey – $195.70 – Looks like you had a few sales in Philip Morris (PM) and Old republic (ORI). Was this due to price appreciation and low div. growth? Hope you are able to reinvest at more undervalued entities at a slightly higher yield!
Tawcan – $1,014.84 – WHOA! CONGRATULATIONS! The Illustrious 4 digit mark… crossed. Done and DONE. This was Tawcan’s 2nd month in a row of 4 digit plus dividend income and 3rd on the year. So incredible. Nice job.
Pollies Dividends – $366.70 – Love that we share a few names in AT&T (T), Procter & Gamble (PG) and Realty Income (O). Also – don’t worry about the growth YOY, as you did sell some securities. You’ll be cranking the number up again in no time!
RoadMap2Retire – $615.91 – Strong month with big payers. You had a slight/small YOY decrease, and we are wondering/thinking it is due to our consistent friend in KMI. Don’t worry your May 2017 will blow this out of the water. You had a great month with solid passive income!
Stock Fox – $849.38 – Straight lacing it! Nice work and very, very impressive. You added $11K to your portfolio for contributions. You truly are an animal… a fox.
Dividend for Starters – $71.46 – Again, I don’t think you are a starter anymore! AT&T (T) produced a good chunk here for you and you are climbing the charts, keep at it bud, you’re getting there!
Building Income Investments – $17.23 – Starting over is a journey, and you are well on your way, I own Caterpillar (CAT) as well, we just received news on maintaining of the dividend. Hmph.
Investment Hunting – $452.58 – That chart with the growth rates is insane IH! IH is running towards a close battle with his goal of $7,500 and is about to get a huge bump as the best month of the quarter gets rolling. Then you’ll really see the power of dividend re-investing flex its muscle.
Dividends Down Under – $62.60 – Our favorite blogger to follow from Australia and a fellow Delly fan (Go Cavs!). Tristan’s average monthly dividend income continues to increase and some real progress is being made here! Nice work Tristan.
WOAH….are you all exhausted yet reading that list?? By far the biggest summary we had, which is a great thing. Everyone here is crushing it and we are all one step closer to financial freedom. All, let’s celebrate our successes in May and get ready to destroy June. The third month of the quarter is the BEST month for dividends after all. So let’s get at it! Again, congrats everyone!
