April 2018 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeWith month of April passing us by it is time again to crunch the numbers and tally up all of the dividends I have received for the month. 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 14 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Lets get down to it!


 Coca Cola Co. (KO) $10.92
 Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR) $41.41
 PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP) $21.81
 The Travelers Companies, Inc. (TRV) $7.20
 Union Pacific Corp. (UNP) $33.91
 Wall-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) $8.39
 Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) $19.24
 Viacom, Inc. (VIAB) $9.20
 Altria Group, Inc. (MO) $32.35
 Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) $60.46
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $19.55
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.37
 Erie Indemnity Co. (ERIE) $15.12
 The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) $9.16
Total $294.09


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from April 2017 to April 2018, it represents a positive 104.4% for a year over year increased dividend income growth.

I will DRIP the following upcoming month: BKE, GIS, KMI, PG, VIAB, VNQ & VYM.

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

Thank you for reading & have a great day!

      It is nice and good to hear you invest in some of my favorite companies and reap the rewards yourself, the best part is the everlasting and growing continuation of dividends.

      All the best!

    Great results, awesome to double the passive income YoY.

      That is the result when new money continuously is being invested AND “the greatest force on the planet”, compound interest working silently.

    Hey, DV. Over 100% YoY growth is outstanding. Keep doing that and FI will come your way sooner than you know it. Big tobacco working for you in April, I see. I share PEP, UNP and O with you. I recently picked up a few more shares of PEP.

    • DividendVet on May 12, 2018 at 11:35

      I really appreciate your kind words! Tobacco is a bit overweight here but will continue to build around it and would like much more in insurance sector.

      Take care.
