Bert’s May Dividend Income Summary

We are swiftly approaching the halfway mark for 2018.  Man oh man, where has time gone?   Lanny, like so many of you already, published his May Dividend Income report and crushed it.  He earned almost $500 in dividend income and posted a 30% dividend increase!  Nice freaking job Lanny.  That’s how you crush it right there.  I’ve spent some time compiling my results here.  Let’s see if my May dividend income summary was as strong as Lanny’s!

April Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers!

With 4 months down, there is one trend that the two of us are seeing everywhere.  The dividend growth community is kicking some serious butt this year!  Dividend stocks continue to announce strong dividend increases while the consumer staple stock industry is still offering some great value (as evidenced by the fact we both purchased Pepsi this month).   One of our favorite activities each month is reading blogger’s monthly dividend income summaries.  Why?  We both are extremely motivated by the hustle, hard work, and amazing results exhibited by so many in the dividend growth community.  So each month, we aggregate as many stories as we can into one article so we can share the results with all of you.  Here is the April installment of the Dividend Income from YOU the Bloggers series!
