Spring is finally in the air and the second quarter is well under. Ah, the perfect time to sit down, relax, and review my dividend income figures from the last month. It is always nice to see what changes your portfolio had over the last twelve months, which seems like a long period of time but somehow flies by. Last month in our blogging community dividend income summary, we saw so many people producing crazy results, setting records, and setting the bar insanely high. Now, it is time to see if I can follow the lead of all of you. Time to check out my April dividend income summary!
I’ve been getting excite to write this post ever since I published my November 2016 dividend income summary. Why? Because December is the BEST DIVIDEND INCOME MONTH OF THE YEAR! Not only do we receive dividends from the majority of companies in our portfolio, but we also receive distributions from our mutual funds. More often than not, the capital gains distributions cause you to fall out of your seat as the number never seems to disappoint, especially when you have been contributing to your 401k throughout the year. Now that it is officially 2017, time for me to perform my final dividend income summary of 2016! Let’s see my December dividend income figures!
Wow… October is over, isn’t it? World Series baseball has SPIKED and our beloved Cleveland Indians are making some history vs. the Cubs. What a great way to end October and intro to November! The cold and warm weather also keep battling on who is getting the last laugh, as it has swung from 75 to 50 back to 75 a few times over the last week. However, we all know that the cold always wins towards the end of the year here in Ohio! Enough about baseball and weather, you are here for dividends, so let’s see what I was able to rake in for the month in the dividend income investing world!
Happy Halloween everyone! The fourth quarter started out with a bang and we are closing in on the new year quickly. I still cannot believe we are closing in on 2017; hopefully it will be as exciting for all of us as it is setting up to be for Lanny. The end of the month is always the best because it allows us to reflect on the growth we experienced over the last 30 or so days. I love seeing what the two of us and the dividend investing community were able to earn without lifting a finger. Now, it is time to take a look at my October Dividend Income summary!
July dividend income figures may not pack the same punch and dollar amounts that June has to offer, but that doesn’t mean that we all weren’t making moves and CRUSHING IT during July. Almost every dividend income report we read during the month saw some form of major progress, personal records, or discussed how movers were made to increase future dividend income! To echo the point we made last month, we are doing everything we can to get through as many dividend income articles as we can each month. If you aren’t included in our monthly summary, it doesn’t mean we didn’t read your article and your exclusion is definitely not personal. It is just a time thing! With that being said, it is time to check out our July Dividend Income summary from all of YOU in the dividend growth investing community.
After coming off the highs of our June dividend income summary, we now get to report on the lowly first month of the quarter now that July has come to a close. Last month, I was able to post a 56% annual growth rate, and a lot of that had to do with the purchases I had in the first half of the year. Some how, some way, all those purchases seemed to pay a dividend in the third month of the quarter! I’m not expecting those kind of results here, so let’s see how I performed during the month and if I was able to defeat Lanny’s dividend growth rate during July. Here is my July dividend income summary!
Another month bites the dust! 2016 is officially 33% over everyone! The market began showing signs of weakness towards the tail end of the month and it seems like every dividend investor had a collective sigh of relief. There were two stocks that I have been big fans of for a while that finally had a nice pullback, so they earned a spot on my Watch List. The don’t have the highest yield, but they are all star companies in their industry. Let’s hope the slide continues for Visa and Starbucks. Back to business, now that I have received my final April dividend income summary.
