June 2018 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeJune has been the biggest month ever in dividend income payouts received folks as I beat out last March’s total by a Hamilton. 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 23 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here is the dollar stocking action!


 Aflac, Inc. (AFL) $31.72
 Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) $8.31
 Wall-Mart Stores, Inc. (WMT) $8.39

I will DRIP the following upcoming month: GIS, KMI, PG, VIAB, VNQ & VYM.

    Wow, what a nice list of companies you have there. Your diversification (companies and business sectors) is awesome! I really like the size of your MCD and UNP position. They’re terrific companies! I think you’ll do fine for the second half of 2018!

    Respect for vets! 💪

      Many thanks, as it has been years and years of slow and diligent process of picking businesses that I want to own for a long time. It all has been a lesson with up and down (the lessons) because essentially this is life changing stuff where you CAN build a 100% passive income streams only to wonder the full magnitude.

      Yeah, I haven’t added to MCD for a few years and the company is doing great, but I did buy a few thousand worth of UNP during the OIL Crisis in the low 70s, that has been a very good decision.

      The truth is that I don’t care if I will do well to finish off 2018, I know I will, as this is a journey of a lifetime!

      Wishing you well.

    Way to go, DV! Congrats on a record month. So many great companies (and funds) paying you. Looks like we share 7 companies from your list, but you’ve got others I’d like to add. More records are in your future, I’m sure.

    Very strong month. Outside of the positions we share, which are numerous, I would really like to add a few you have that I don’t – AFL, TRV, and LMT chief among them. Keep making it rain.
