It is that time again to report my dividend income for the month of September 2016. These quarter months are my biggest since I receive the largest amount of dividends and the most number of direct deposits from my diversified portfolio. Actually, going back a few months, June was my all time highest dividend income month achieved and now this recent month of September is the newly crowned record keeper. How about you, what is your single biggest month of dividends received?
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 September, I have received a total of 22 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. The way I am going, soon enough I will have a dividend for each day of the month. Anyways, here is the list!

When statistically comparing last years dividend income total from September 2015 to September 2016, it represents a positive 13.0% for a year over year increased dividend growth. The growth difference from last quarter is positive 0.3% for a quarter over quarter increased dividend growth. The QoQ increase is essentially due to annual dividend raises and DRIP reinvesting for a fractional shares.
I will DRIP the following upcoming month: BKE, COP, KMI, MAT, TROW, UNP, VIAB & WFC.
The dividend income page is updated accordingly.
