March 2019 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeGreat to have another month full of dividends! Also, this is my highest dividend income month ever. 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 22 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. 



 Aflac, Inc. (AFL) $32.94
 Wells Fargo & Co. (WFC) $9.59
 Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) $32.47
 3M Co. (MMM) $8.64

      Thank you, the quadfecta: dividend + dividend growth + capital appreciation + inflation is doing the heavy lifting for wealth building. Very slow, but steady!

      Thanks for stopping by!
