It has been a very busy time of the year for me and so have been the dividend income. Unfortunately, I didn’t acquire any new shares of businesses this past month, though I have my finger on the trigger and I hope Mr. Market brings some more buying opportunities soon. But anyways, in the month of June I enjoyed another flood of dividends straight into my brokerage account. Actually, this is yet another biggest month I have ever received in dividends. It beat out last record high that was set in March of 2016 by $4.59. Not an explosive record, but record nonetheless. I will take many more of these small gains any time over the big ones since I am in this for the longterm.
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 June, I have received a total of 22 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. I continue to ignore the noise of all forms of media and focus on fundamental aspect of the businesses. The ultimate goal is to keep buying cash flow generating assets by dividend investing, real estate investing, and website investing.

When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from June 2015 to June 2016, it represents a positive 13.3% for a year over year increased dividend growth. The growth difference from last quarter is positive 1.4% for a quarter over quarter increased dividend growth. The QoQ increase is essentially due to annual dividend raises.
I will DRIP the following upcoming month: BKE, COP, KMI, MAT, TROW & UNP.
The dividend income page is updated accordingly.
