March 2018 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeAnother month is behind us, spring is in the air and it is time to review the newest record high in monthly dividend income. 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 March I have received a total of 23 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Lets take a peek!


 Aflac, Inc. (AFL) $31.72
 Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) $8.31

Total $520.92


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from March 2017 to March 2018, it represents a positive 22.9% for a year over year increased dividend income growth.

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

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

    Very nice March. Glad to see we hold a lot of similar positions; I like to think the whole great minds thinks alike applies. Now I am going to have to read up a little bit on the ones I don’t own.
