May 2019 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeAnother month is in the books and it is that time once more to count those birds in the hand, rather than keep looking at the ones in the bush. 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 May I have received a total of 8 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account.


 AT&T, Inc. (T) $69.76
 General Mills, Inc. (GIS) $23.23
 British American Tobacco (BTI) $16.37
 Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI) $75.37
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $20.21
 Apple, Inc. (AAPL) $30.50
 Starbucks Corp. (SBUX) $18.00
 Kontoor Brands, Inc. (KTB) $12.84
Total $266.28


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from May 2018 to May 2019, it represents a negative 12.4% for a year over year decreased dividend income growth.

I will DRIP the following upcoming month: VNQ & VYM.

The dividend income page has been updated accordingly.

      Lanny, I appreciate the excitement, but the growth was negative 12.4% year over year. I am not worried though, been saving money for a property down payment as the portfolio is jogging on it own.

      Take care bud.
