All you sucka’s gather ’round, there’s a new dividend income report coming to town. So get on up and check the scene of the latest April passive income stream. If you crave satisfaction then dig this dividend action:
Year to date dividends: $1,354.12
Year to date dividends: $572.61
Year to date dividends: $161.58
Dividend income from my taxable account totaled $297.61 up from $277.55 an increase of 7.2% from April of last year.
Dividend income from my ROTH account totaled $121.03 down from $135.84 a decrease of -10.9% from this time last year.
Dividend income from my IRA account totaled $1.91 up from $0.00 from this time last year.
Grand total for the month of April: $420.55 an increase of 1.7% from April 2016.
Talk about a buzz kill. After coming off an incredible all time high in March I manage to scrounge up a 1.7% year over year increase. No worries and no concern here. This small increase was due to The Kraft Heinz Company (KHC) shifting their payout schedule. Since I hold shares of KHC in my taxable and ROTH account it had a larger impact on my grand total. Of course, I always say an increase is an increase and being up 1.7% year over year sure beats being down and I am on track to surpass my 2016 totals which means I’m still headed in the right direction.
On another positive note, I’m happy to finally see my spin offs Versum Materials, Inc. (VSM) and Adient plc (ADNT) begin their dividend distributions. The amounts may not be large but it’s a start and a heck of a lot better seeing those investments contribute to my passive income stream instead of just sitting there idle.
