Bert’s May Dividend Income Summary

Lanny said it best in his stock purchase article…the month of May was actually wild!  Every day presented a new twist, turn, and market swing.  I would transfer cash to my brokerage and get ready to make a purchase.  Then boom, the market would swing upward.  Despite the madness, the dividend income continued to flow.  After all, that’s part of the beauty of dividend investing.   Lanny published great dividend income results this month.  As always, he is a tough act to follow. Especially when he announces a 48.8% YOY dividend increase.  But I’ll give it my best shot.  It is time to review my May Dividend Income summary!

Bert’s March Dividend Income Summary

I cannot believe that we have another month in the book!  Where the heck is time going?  Baseball season is coming and life is flying fast at me.  All great stuff though.  This month’s article even features a new image!  Finally, I decided to do away with the old “Dividend Income” image and get creative. Lanny updated his last year, so it was time for me to as well.  My wife and I were playing Scrabble and then I had this idea for the article.  But back to business, I’m starting to ramble.  At the beginning of the month, we each post our dividend income summaries to track and monitor our progress.  Lanny recently released his March dividend income summary and produced absolutely insane numbers.  I’ll let you see them for yourself.  But all I have to say is DAMN LANNY!   It is my turn now.  Here is my March dividend income summary!
