So fast and so soon, I guess time flies when you are having fun. But anyways, we have come to another point in the DGI journey and it is that time once again to calculate and measure how much of dividend income magically flew into my brokerage account. The best part of all is that it’s a big dividend increase type of month for quite a few of my holdings. The higher dividend payouts that will be compounded year over year and reaped forever later. Here is one of the many favorite quotes.
I enjoy publishing these monthly dividend income reports as I have gained a much better understanding in how much of my passive income is coming in every month and how much it is growing over time. For the month of April, I have received a total of 8 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. While it is one of my lower paying dividend income months, it all slowly contributes to a sizable chunk over time. Additionally on the side note, I have decided to liquidate one of my oil positions here recently. I am sure many of you are aware of the company it is, but more on that to come soon. Here are the dividends!
- Baxter International, Inc. (BAX) – $2.65
- Coca Cola Co. (KO) – $9.80
- Reynolds American, Inc. (RAI) – $6.72
- Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) – $9.28
- Wall-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) – $8.06
- Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) – $57.64
- Realty Income Corp. (O) – $9.66
- The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) – $7.50
Total – $111.31
When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from April 2015 to April 2016, it represents a positive 5.8% for a year over year increased dividend growth. The growth difference from last quarter is negative 39.3% for a quarter over quarter decreased dividend growth.
I have decided to DRIP the following this month: COP, KMI, MAT, TROW & UNP.
The dividend income page is updated accordingly.
Thank you for reading & have a great day!
