Half of 2017 is in the books. Man oh man does time fly. I look forward to the first weekend of every month so that I can summarize my dividend income from the previous month. Summarizing my June dividend income, aka the third month of the quarter, is always a little more exciting since I get to include the dividends received from mutual funds. Enough talk, let’s take a look at how I performed in June compared to 2016.
After taking a month off from the series in June (unintentionally of course)…I’m back! Each month, I like to summarize which Dividend Aristocrats are expected to increase their dividend in the coming month. As die-hard dividend growth investors, the two of us take great joy in closely monitoring and tracking the changes in our dividend income and dividend payments of the companies we own and companies that we are watching closely. Typically, July is a slower month than June, but there are still some great companies that are expected to reward their shareholders.
