July 2019 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeAnother month of our lives has come to pass and I really hope you made the most of it, I sure try to. One of the ways I try to make most of it is to make money the way I always dreamed of making money, effortlessly, with dividends! No, I am not talking about some kind of get rich quick scheme that millions of people get sucked into and loose all their money. And no, I am not talking about that hot stock CNBC is spewing for 5 hours every day on the dummy box. I am talking about dividend growth investing. The concept is simple, execution is seamless, and growth can be perpetual. 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 8 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account.


 Viacom, Inc. (VIAB) $9.00
 Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) $20.00
 Altria Group, Inc. (MO) $69.42
 Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) $65.30
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $20.26
 Erie Indemnity Co. (ERIE) $16.20
 The Walt Disney Co. (DIS) $14.08
 Vanguard REIT Index Fund (VNQ) $61.00
Total $275.26


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from July 2018 to July 2019, it represents a positive 31.0% for a year over year increased dividend income growth.

The dividend income page has been updated accordingly.

    Nice Month Dividend Vet! I have been accumulating Disney for a long time. I wish I loaded up more in the 20’s back in 2009 when I was interning there.

      Many thanks for your kind words!

      Oh in 2009, those were the great dip buying days of amazing assets. It’s ok though, we have a great market and plenty of other opportunities, you just might need to look a bit harder. Wink, Wink.. BTI

    Nice work, DV. I like seeing that DIS dividend, too… I wish DIS was currently part of my portfolio.
    Congrats on that outstanding YoY increase… that’s the way to do it.

      Thanks for your kind words. I wish I had more of that stock as DIS is making some big moves here lately with their own streaming business and all that content will be huge to monetize. That company is a no brainer, just have to remember to add to it once in a while which is the hard part.

      Thank you! It is churning income and who else knows how to do that then top businesses in the world. Continuous income makes me continuously happy!

      Take care.

    Vet –

    Exactly, preach my friend! It’s seamless, it works and it’s amazing seeing the dividend growth just grow, via raises/increases and reinvesting those dividends. Keep going sir!

      No need for me to preach, the strategy speaks for itself. I am just very passionate about DGI, receiving dividend income and being invested into the greatest businesses on the planet. The longer I stick with this strategy, the more it is showing that it is a real long term type of road map.

      All The best!
