June 2016 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeIt 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.

Thank you for reading & have a great day!

    Congrats on a great month. I love when I beat dividend records. Your portfolio of stocks is impressive, not a bad one in the bunch. Keep up the good work.

      Thanks, I appreciate it. Life in general is very similar to dividend growth investing, it is about sowing new seeds for the future and planting new ones when future comes. The more you sow the more you reap, the concept is simple.

      Great work to you too my friend!

    Great month and it always feels good to set records which is why dividends are awesome. It’s somewhat easy to set new records since you’re always investing more and more!

    • DividendVet on July 4, 2016 at 13:42

      It is simple, yes, but not easy… There are so many forces out there going against the grain to profit the other pocket, but your own.

      Take care.

  3. FerdiS on July 3, 2016 at 22:23

    Congratulations, DividendVet! Another record month… don’t you just LOVE quarter-ending months? I do! Like you I set a new record for dividend income in a single month. Take care and happy investing.

    • DividendVet on July 4, 2016 at 13:34

      Thanks FerdiS! I sure do love seeing progress in the form of monetary results thus detaching me slowly from the need of always laboring for cashflow.

      Congrats on a new achievement yourself!

    Records are records, and setting a new one is always cause for celebration!

    • DividendVet on July 3, 2016 at 15:22

      Indeed! I think there is plenty of celebrating to do in the DGI community.

      Thanks for your thoughts.

    Awesome job Div Vet. The great thing about investing for a while is being to compare your position this month to how you were doing a year ago. It’s good to know that you’re not just investing, but that your position is an improvement from last year.

    Keep it up!

    • DividendVet on July 3, 2016 at 12:32

      Absolutely, the improvement is something that NEEDS to happen. Though, the great thing with this strategy is once you built a solid base, the improvements WILL happen regardless of your action. The dividend will grow and flow. I kind of like the sound of that “GROW & FLOW”. Of course you always want to save more and accumulate more. It like the hunger that never stops.

      Thanks for stopping.

    $342 is a good amount of cash to buy more stocks with to further that snow ball. Keep it rolling forward, Vet. You’re on the right track.

    • DividendVet on July 3, 2016 at 12:26

      I am ready to roll the snowball regardless it want to move or not. I have my finger on the trigger and ready to deploy some funds. Kind of missed the Brexit fiasco/correction, but I am sure something else will come up again. Patiently waiting…

      Take care.

    Heck yeah Vet! Breaking some records here. Don’t worry about the “explosive” factor of breaking your record. Who cares? All that matters is that you now can save June instead of March is the record holder. That is a solid list of companies that paid you dividend income this month. Looking forward to seeing you break the record in September, then again in December, and heck, nearly every quarter!


    • DividendVet on July 3, 2016 at 12:22

      Thank you so much, and yeah I am just trying to focus on value of the company on each and every acquisition. It would be great to keep on continuing and breaking records quarter after quarter and THAT IS WHAT I WILL DO! 🙂
      Nothing is stopping this Money Making Machine!

      All the best!

  8. Dividend Hustler on July 3, 2016 at 00:46

    Keep it up Vet. You’re doing awesome!
    Don’t stop and with some more hustling and grinding, you’re crush your goals.
    Thanks for sharing and I’m happy for your income.
    Cheers bro.

    • DividendVet on July 3, 2016 at 11:55

      Much appreciated and thank you for the hustle motivation from a real hustler. 🙂

      It is all about bringing that bacon without going out the door.

      Keep up the great work on your end too bro!

  9. Captain Dividend on July 2, 2016 at 20:41

    It feels good breaking your own records doesn’t it ? I’ve seen a lot of bloggers posting record months (i did too) for June. June is one of those big dividend months for dividend investors because there are so many great companies who pay in that period. Keep up the great work DV!

    • DividendVet on July 3, 2016 at 11:51

      It sure is, but what is even better is knowing that it will continue boosting itself to a higher limits.

      Looking forward checking out the progress of your portfolio and what it brought in last month.

      Good hearing from you.
