June 2017 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeRunning a bit late with this post than usual, but better late than never. Either way, I have a nice streak of dividend income reports going on and would hate to break up all of the essential fun, entertainment and knowledge purpose for both you and me. But anyways, the month of June has brought me THE biggest dividend income payout I have ever received and the portfolio is starting to change gears forward here. The bigger and bigger payouts are going to help me out tremendously over time as it will take less pressure to save for any future acquisitions and reload my mini gun automatically.

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 24 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here it is!


 Aflac, Inc. (AFL) $25.37
 ConocoPhillips (COP) $5.02
 Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) $8.10
 Wall-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) $8.23
 Mattel, Inc. (MAT) $48.69
 3M Co. (MMM) $7.05
 Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) $29.89
 The Home Depot, Inc. (HD) $7.12
 Kellogg Co. (K) $8.84
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $18.72
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.27
 McDonald’s Corp. (MCD) $21.12
 V.F. Corp. (VFC) $6.91
 BlackRock, Inc. (BLK) $10.14
 Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMT) $27.49
 Waste Management, Inc. (WM) $11.35
 Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.B) $77.08
 Public Storage (PSA) $16.00
 T. Rowe Price Group, Inc. (TROW) $7.21
 Vanguard High Dividend Yield Index Fund (VYM) $38.74
 Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (DLR) $38.13
 PepsiCo, Inc. (PEP) $21.81
 Travelers Companies, Inc. (TRV) $7.20
 Union Pacific Corp. (UNP) $28.10
Total $483.58


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from June 2016 to June 2017, it represents a positive 41.0% for a year over year increased dividend growth. A big boost to this growth came from previous acquisition of VYM which paid it first dividend to me.

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

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

Thank you for reading & have a great day!

    41% increase from last year is excellent and you’ve received income from a diverse list of companies. You’ve made more in one month than I’m projected to make all year. Keep the snowball rolling in Div Vet.

      Much appreciated and I hope that provides some motivation to everyone out there that trading time for money is NOT the only way to make money.
