September 2017 Dividend Income

Hundred dollar bills in dividend incomeIt is my enthusiastic pleasure to report the biggest dividend income payout for the month of September I have ever received. My previous dividend income record was held by June total. Even with Mattel, Inc. (MAT) dividend reduction there is no stopping this money churning Dividend Machine. Essentially, 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 26 diversified direct deposits in the form of dividends straight to my brokerage account. Here it is!

      It serves great value to me seeing the progress and the growth. I am glad to hear that it brought some value for you too.

    Congrats on your greatest dividend income payout! Keep up the great work! 🙂

    • DividendVet on October 2, 2017 at 21:36

      Thanks Robert it has come from few dollars to this and later to much, much more. Time and future capital will grow this into something…

      Best wishes.

    Portfolio management is the most important practice and it seems you are doing great job at that. 26 payouts add up quickly. Look forward to your next record.

    • DividendVet on October 2, 2017 at 21:33

      Much appreciated, as I enjoy this hobby of mine quite a bit.

    Nice work on having a double-digit increase from last year and congrats on having your biggest month ever. I’m not sure which I like more: the fact that you had your biggest record month, or the fact that the record month came from 26 different sources. Looking forward to next month’s report.

    • DividendVet on October 1, 2017 at 20:38

      Honestly, consistency was the key and double digit increase is the result. I feel these months are such outliers due to such big payouts, though it is what it is.

      I just recently sold a few of my holdings to rebalance the under performers that should be coming soon.

      Take care.

    Wow. So jealous 😀. 489 is 2x my annual. Post like this fuel me to fuel my machine.

    • DividendVet on October 1, 2017 at 20:30

      No need to be jealous, only inspiration what could be and what truly is. Keep it up and undoubtedly the results will show.

    DivVet –

    A 40%+ increase? Damn! You are a true veteran here, no doubt. It took me quite a while to scroll down to see how many players are sending you a check, impressive. I also hold Mattel and that cut hasn’t stopped the engine one bit – which is why the engine has multiple types of “oil” fueling it haha. Keep it up, progress is astounding, of course and as always!


    • DividendVet on October 1, 2017 at 20:28

      Thanks Lanny, twenty-six streams of cashflow for the month is simply the result of all adding up to a nice chunk of change. Though, it will be a lot more in time, a lot more…

      Mattel has been a scurvy dog of the portfolio, thinking of purchasing more soon. Brands are definitely there.

      Good hearing from you, keep up the consistency yourself.

    • DividendVet on October 1, 2017 at 20:08

      Much appreciated for the kind support.

      All the best to you too.

    Wow, that’s crazy YOY growth. I am jealous!

    • DividendVet on October 1, 2017 at 20:08
