October 2018 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeAnother month is in history books and now it’s time to report my historic 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) $10.92
 Viacom, Inc. (VIAB) $9.00
 Kimberly-Clark Corp. (KMB) $19.42
 Altria Group, Inc. (MO) $37.42
 Phillip Morris International, Inc. (PM) $65.30
 Realty Income Corp. (O) $19.72
 STAG Industrial, Inc. (STAG) $5.37
 Erie Indemnity Co. (ERIE) $15.12
 The Buckle, Inc. (BKE) $9.35
Total $191.62


When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from October 2017 to October 2018, it represents a positive 17.5% for a year over year increased dividend income growth.

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

The dividend income page is updated accordingly.

    Another solid month, DV. 17+% YoY growth works for me!
    Always enjoy looking over your dividend payers, as you always seem to have a couple that I don’t see often in other portfolios. This month, that happens to be ERIE and BKE.

      Thanks, slowly but steady is the name of the game for DGI. ERIE has been a very good pickup, soon it will achieve a Dividend Aristocrat status, just love the insurance model business and they are actually my insurance company for cars and home, awesome rates. BKE on the other had should be announcing a special dividend soon for January, should be exciting.

      Take care.

    FerdiS is right: solid dividend growth. Maybe even for the portfolio (while the market is down)? If you update, I can update your market value for Income Heroes as well 😉

      Thanks Torsten, but you are giving me way too much credit. The portfolio has still has ways to grow and mature before the income can be sizable and robust. This month is usually the smallest of the quarterly months, but nonetheless it is always growing consistently.

      Take care.
