August 2017 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeAnother month is in the books and August 2017 brings another awesome stream of dividend income. 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 August I have received a total of 8 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here it is!

 AT&T, Inc. (T) $52.33
 General Mills, Inc. (GIS) $22.48
 Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ) $47.93
 Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) $20.57
 Procter & Gamble Co. (PG) $27.86
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $18.83
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.33
 Apple, Inc. (AAPL) $24.96
Total $220.29


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from August 2016 to August 2017, it represents a positive 21.1% for a year over year increased dividend growth.

I will DRIP the following upcoming month: BKE, COP, KMI, MAT & VFC.

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

Thank you for reading & have a great day!

    Vet –

    Cruising past the 20% growth mark is no joke! I see you are loving your telecommunication dividends, that reinvestment is wild, going right back in at 5%. What’s great is – Realty Income (O), gets better each and every month. Cheers to solid results!

      Thank you Lanny!

      Yes, I do love the my telecommunication oligopolies and indeed them 5% are getting reinvested to create interest on top of interest for future cashflows.

      I am gonna have to agree that O is pretty awesome REIT, love that monthly check and the dividend growth has been pretty good as well.

      Good hearing from you!

    Double digit year over year gain… all is well with your dividend portfolio! T & VZ doing the heavy lifting for the month. Great update.

    Hi DividendVet, Nice job… those telecom companies (T & VZ) really delivered for you this month, nearly half your total. From your list of August dividend payers, I hold PG and O. I like your portfolio as well. Keep up the good work.

      Those are my one and two punches for dividend income, love the companies and the yield it produces on regular basis.

    That’s a nice increase from last year Div Vet. 5 of those companies also paid me dividends in August, namely GIS, T, O, PG, and AAPL. It’s also good you’re getting income from so many companies. Looking forward to next month’s report.

      Much appreciated! That is a great list of companies, now we just have to increase our positions.

      Thanks for stopping by.
