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!
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!
Man oh man does it feel weird to be writing one of these articles again. Similar to Lanny, I had taken a few months off of writing an income and expense article for a variety of reasons. Through switching jobs again, traveling for my old job, and insert any life activity, time has been at a premium. Enough with the excuses from my end! While Lanny performed a 3 month income summary earlier in the month, I decided to forgo summarizing the last three months and instead focus solely on July. But don’t worry, I will update our Savings Challenge page to display the last 3 months since one of my annual goals is to defeat the Dividend Diplomats Savings Challenge 6 times this year! Let’s see how I performed in July.
