The beginning of every month is exciting for all dividend income investors as we look back at the previous month and see how much passive dividend income our portfolios generated. February was exciting as ever as my year over year numbers continue to highlight the trifecta magic of dividend investing which includes, adding fresh capital, dividend raises and basic compounding to create an ever increasing passive income stream. Even if I stopped adding fresh capital today and every dividend stock I owned kept all distributions flat without a single raise my passive income stream will still continue to grow.
Looking back at the month of February we have witnessed another month with extreme volatility in individual stock pricing as well as in various indexes. Of course, we all know that a direct result of volatility tends to be better buying opportunities and with the market rebounding from its February lows this was the case once again. With the February dividend results now in, I am happy, once again, to report a continuation of satisfactory year over year dividend growth. You just have to love the very real results of a dividend growth investing strategy.
With that being said, let’s take a look back at my February 2016 dividend income.
Dividend income from my taxable account totalled $241.34 up from $213.87 an increase of 12.8% from February of last year.
