August 2018 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeAnother month is in the books and it is that time to review the dividend income received for the month of August. 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 11 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Lets take a closer look.


 AT&T, Inc. (T) $68.39
 General Mills, Inc. (GIS) $22.73
 Verizon Communications, Inc. (VZ) $49.55
 British American Tobacco (BTI) $15.08
 Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) $58.31
 Procter & Gamble Co. (PG) $29.26
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $19.68
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.37
 Apple, Inc. (AAPL) $28.92
 Costco Wholesale Corp. (COST) $7.41
 Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) $18.00
Total $322.70


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from August 2017 to August 2018, it represents a positive 46.5% for a year over year increased dividend income growth.

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

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

Thank you for reading & have a great day!

    Breaking 300 in a non-March, June, Sept., or Dec. month is always excellent progress. Keep it up!

    Vet –

    Gotta love that telecom baby!! Congrats on the recent Verizon increase, by the way. Continue to let the dividends call in!

      Telecoms doing the heavy lifting with their hefty yields, now with VZ dividend increase, my YOC keep on going, whats no t to like. Capital working by investing in businesses that know how to make money!

      Good hearing from you!

    Hey DV! Stellar YoY dividend growth you posted. You must have been steadily investing over the past year. Congrats on the tremendous progress.
    How long have you owned COST? It’s a stock I’d like to own, but I just haven’t found an entry point I liked. When it is down, it doesn’t seem to stay down for long.

    • DividendVet on September 8, 2018 at 12:02

      Awesome to hear, absolutely you know, always investing for more and more cashflow, in longterm that is the only thing that matters financially.

      I purchase COST in 2015 so its been a very nice appreciation holding much like a growth stock, but also paying fairly small dividends throughout. Love the company, but I don’t think it is a good time to buy right now.

      Take care.

    Well done! I think you will be Dripping O as well. It’s a month dividend.

    • DividendVet on September 8, 2018 at 19:47

      Thanks, but no I won’t be dripping O at these prices.

    Congrats on an awesome momth! We share quite a few names…and my recent purchase was SBUX as well!

    Take care

    • DividendVet on September 8, 2018 at 19:46

      Much appreciated, glad to hear of a common purchase.

      All the best!

    Good job always nice to see the YOY up. We share 5 companies this month. Keep it up.

    • DividendVet on September 7, 2018 at 19:53

      Thanks, I was fairly surprised with the nice YOY growth, but then I realized it is inevitable with this strategy, though as long as you follow some very simple rules.

      Keep on building!
