July 2017 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeAnother month is in the books and July 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 July I have received a total of 10 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here it is!

 Coca Cola Co. (KO) $10.36
 Reynolds American, Inc. (RAI) $23.97
 Viacom, Inc. (VIAB) $9.14
 Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) $9.93
 Altria Group, Inc. (MO) $12.81
 Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) $58.77
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $18.83
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.30
 The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) $8.12
 The Walt Disney Co. (DIS) $12.48
Total $169.71


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from July 2016 to July 2017, it represents a positive 49.3% for a year over year increased dividend growth. This is also the first time MO is paying me a dividend from recent acquisition in May.

I see some potential future acquisitions soon in the current market! Will post soon.

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

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

Thank you for reading & have a great day!

        Trying to stay consistent and keep on investing the extra cash. So far so good.

        Good hearing from you.

    Another solid report Div Vet and a great double digit increase from last year. I also like the companies you’re invested in. Both KO and O paid me also in July.

      Thanks, thought I like to think that the portfolio is still in the infancy stages and it will get bigger and better in the future, on a larger scale. Therefore, consistency is the hard part.

      Thanks for stopping by!

    Another great showing for the month of July. Nice to see such a solid year over year gain as well. It’s usually tough coming off a June high into a more conservative July but you are certainly on a roll. Keep up the good work.

    • DividendVet on August 9, 2017 at 20:31

      Yeah, finally diligent investing is paying off with good year over year growth. Plus, putting more money too work does wonders.

      Keep up the good work yourself.

    Awesome month Dividend Vet! A 50% year over year growth is fantastic. Great list of stocks as well. Congrats! 🙂

    • DividendVet on August 9, 2017 at 20:25

      Hard work is paying off, with the magic on continual investing and some dividend growth on top of that.

      Thanks for support!

    Awesome job we share MO,KO and O kind of rhymes. Keep up the good work.

      Some nice choices there Doug. Plus, a dividend song is what we need, I like the idea! 🙂
