August 2019 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeThe month of August has completed its line of payments and it is that time once again to tally up the proceeds. 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 7 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account.


 AT&T, Inc. (T) $69.76
 General Mills, Inc. (GIS) $23.45
 British American Tobacco (BTI) $16.37
 Apple, Inc. (AAPL) $30.50
 Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) $76.31
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $20.26
 Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) $18.00
Total $254.65


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from August 2018 to August 2019, it represents a negative 21.1% for a year over year decreased dividend income growth.

The dividend income page has been updated accordingly.

    Good job Dividend increases stink but as long as your portfolio is better in the long run its better.

      I trimmed the portfolio a bit, this is the major reason for the decreases in year over year. I need to focus to keep on adding to the portfolio and not reducing getting rid of the positions.

      Thanks for stopping by.
