October 2017 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeThe month of October 2017 is done for and has been accounted for another endless round of 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 October I have received a total of 9 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here it is!

 Coca Cola Co. (KO) $10.36
 Viacom, Inc. (VIAB) $9.14
 British American Tobacco (BTI) $18.21
 Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) $18.66
 Altria Group, Inc. (MO) $13.86
 Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) $60.46
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $18.88
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.33
 The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) $8.24
Total $163.14


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from October 2016 to October 2017, it represents a positive 29.6% for a year over year increased dividend growth.

I see some potential future acquisitions soon in the current market! Will post soon.

I will DRIP the following upcoming month: BKE, KMI, MAT & VYM.

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

Thank you for reading & have a great day!

    Lots of good companies there and solid results. I’ve been thinking of adding Stag to my portfolio – I like what they’ve been doing.

    Looking good, DV. PM certainly doing the heavy lifting this month. Excellent YoY increase…. Congrats!

      Yeah, PM has second highest dividend payouts in the portfolio. Now I just need to build up the rest of the names.

    Great month DV! You have a great list of companies paying you as well. Keep up the good work! 🙂

    I also hold STAG, O, KO, and KMB. I’m thinking of increasing my position in STAG, but it’s getting difficult to find value in this bull market. Keep up the good work and thank you for publishing your results.

    • DividendVet on November 5, 2017 at 21:37

      Nice! I think KMB and T are very nicely valued at this time. STAG has been doing fairly good as well, though it needs to take a beating before I pull the trigger.

      Good hearing from you.

    Love that growth rate Vet! Keep up the great work. That is a solid group of companies that are paying you a dividend and that fat PM payment is my favorite of the group.

      Thanks for the kind words Bert. You keep up the good work yourself.

      Thanks for stopping by.

      Much appreciated, well the hard part is done since I already reached 100K so it will be interesting to see the snowball roll.

      Take care.

        That’s my next big thing getting 100,000 in my sharebuilder account and see what the snowball does I already have a higher netWorth yet nothing over 100,000. Hopefully by the time I turn 62 my tsp has close to 100,000 also dumped a lot of money in it but only had 10 years or so to do it.
