July 2018 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeJuly total has been accounted for and it is another increased month full of dividends. 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) $10.92
 Viacom, Inc. (VIAB) $20.26
 Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) $19.24
 Altria Group, Inc. (MO) $32.35
 Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) $64.42
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $19.68
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.37
 Erie Indemnity Co. (ERIE) $15.12
 The Walt Disney Co. (DIS) $13.44
 The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) $9.26
Total $210.06


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from July 2017 to July 2018, it represents a positive 23.8% 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!

    Hey DV. Nice YoY growth – not easy to do. I added MO not too long ago… my first foray into owning a tobacco company. DIS is one that I’d like to see in my portfolio. Congrats on the solid progress.

      Thanks, but I would have to give the credit to this dividend machine I created… Its basically an ownership sort of money printing press that is on a small scale for the time being.

      Tobacco stocks have been punished lately, great picking up one of the best with MO.

      Would love to get more DIS shares myself, but patience is the key.

      Take care.

    Good job. Nothing wrong right now with being a bit heavy in tobacco. In the future it could be. As long as they are paying good dividends why not? Keep it up.

      Thanks, the way I think of it is that there positions I own are still quite small that are around tobacco stocks. The portfolio has a lot more room for acquisitions and growth.

      Keep up the good work yourself as well.

    Vet –

    I love it. That PM dividend is sweet and something we share. Also – 24% divvy increase year over year is awesome. Nice job!

      It sure is, a bit heavy on tobacco, but my latest acquisition should add to a different type of addiction industry. That is coming very soon.

      Take care.
