Dividend Income Update June 2017

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. No doubt, these are the best posts to write and read online as it only provides further proof that dividend investing can work over time and that anyone can create an ever growing passive income stream. Looking back at my June totals I see that my year over year progress is moving at a nice clip. Now that half of 2017 is in the books my annual dividend income picture is looking a lot clearer. With that being said, let’s take a look back at my June 2017 dividend income.

 

Dividend income from my taxable account totaled $597.51 up from $448.22 an increase of 33.3% from June of last year.

 

Dividend income from my ROTH account totaled $146.82 up from $81.36 an increase of 80.5% from this time last year.

 

Dividend income from my IRA account totaled $71.05 up from $44.37 from this time last year. An increase of 60.1%.

 

Grand total for the month of June: $815.38 an increase of 42.1% from June 2016.

The proof of our dividend investing strategy rests in these real results. After all, dividends don’t lie. It’s real cash being returned to investors. With patience and consistency these results and better can be achieved. I’m excited to see what the second half of 2017 will bring. All I know for certain is that the market will definitely be higher, lower or flat come New Year’s Eve! In other words, I’ll continue with my monthly buys and slowly build up my passive income stream share by individual share and let the experts worry about what might happen.

 

Are any of these dividend stocks in your portfolio too? How was your June dividend income? Please let me know below.

  1. Solid month Divhut! My Income landed on $34 which is okey, since I don´t get any payment last year in juni, and most of my stocks pay in may. By the way, the increases you talk about, do you know how much of those numbers that´s caused solely by dividend growth? And not reinvesting? Would be cool to know.

    • Hi Stockles,

      Passive income, in any amount, is a good income to earn. Just keep buying quality companies and growing your passive stream bit by bit. To answer your question, I never do a full breakdown of what actually causes my dividend increases. All I know for sure is that it’s a combination of dividend raises, reinvestment (I reinvest all dividends automatically) and the addition of fresh capital every month. How much each one of those factors contributes to my overall growth I do not know though I would guess that my growth is mostly a result of fresh capital being added. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi TMB,

      Happy to know we own many great companies in our passive income portfolios. It’s been a while since I added anything of substance to my ROTH so I’m guessing after my December income results the year over year growth should slow in that portfolio. Still, I plan to fully contribute every year which should keep some growth coming. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi Dan,

      Always love to share my results as well as read others. No doubt June was a great month for all of us. Let’s keep pushing each other along! As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi IH,

      Always appreciate your kind words and continued support. These real results always get me excited and collectively we are generating some pretty serious passive income which should convert even the most skeptic investor about our strategy. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi FV,

      Snowball indeed 🙂 This is what being a dividend growth investor is all about. Slowly, bit by bit, building up our passive income stream. Thank you for your continued support.

    • Hi DD,

      Dividend cuts are part of this game. It just happens. I’ve had my share with GE, WFC, IR and HCP. That’s why we are diversified and make sure that no single company is our main contributor to our passive income stream. That’s part of the reason I initiated four new positions last month with TEVA, GILD, AMGN and PFE. Small positions, for now, but will help diversify my health sector dividends. Keep looking forward and as long your 2017 annual income beats your 2016 you are well ahead of the game. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi FIF,

      That’s my mantra. One step at a time. I’m doing this for about ten years and have taken my sweet time building up this passive income portfolio. Thank you for your kind words and continued support.

  2. Divhut,

    Congrats on the great month. I’m always excited to read your report and see that all your dividends are from individual stocks. Very impressive. Your income is growing at such a strong rate and it is inspiring/impressive. Keep up the great work and I’m excited to see what Baby Divhut has in store for June as well.

    • Hi DD,

      I always appreciate your kind words and continued support. These end of quarter months are always the most fun for us to report. My plan going forward is to keep all my dividends coming from individual stocks and keep diversifying my passive income stream so as to not be too dependent on just a handful of stocks for my income. With another quarter gone by it will be time to report on baby DivHut’s portfolio. Look for that post later this month. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi Passivecanadianincome,

      These end of quarter months are always the busiest as that’s when most companies pay out their dividends. I’ll keep plugging away making my monthly buys as usual. Consistency is an important quality for being a dividend long term dividend growth investor. Thank you for your continued support.

    • Hi DS,

      These updates continue to pump me up going forward. There’s no rest being a long term dividend growth investor. We continually strive for year over year gains to highlight our investment progress. As with most of our DGI peers, I love these end of quarter months the most. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

  3. More than $800 in a month is nothing to sneeze at for sure. What’s even more impressive is the growth rate. A few years like that, and you should be sitting on easy street. Onward and upward!

    • Hi Chris,

      I’m in this game for the long haul. Through market crashes, dividend cuts, new highs and dividend raises. It’s all about staying consistent and not getting shaken out of the market when things turn sour. Over $800 for June can definitely take care of several of my monthly bills. Thank you for your comment and continued support.

    • Hi AFFJ,

      No complaints about my year over year progress in June. Not sure if I’ll hit the elusive $1K mark this year, unless I make some purchases in stocks that pay me in September and December, but that’s cool. No rush. I’m doing this for about ten years going the slooooow route of building up my passive income stream. Let’s all keep pushing ahead! As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi BHL,

      Thank you for those kind words and continued encouragement. With half of 2017 under our belts I can already see my portfolio potentially beating my 2016 annual totals. Hard work does pay off 🙂 I’m doing this for many, many years really taking my time to build up my passive income stream. It’s nice to see these results are the fruits of my labor. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi DI,

      I always look forward to these end of quarter months the most. They usually are the biggest months for all of us to report. It’s always comforting knowing that my portfolio shares many of the same companies others have and seeing continued year over year gains just reinforces what I am doing. As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi Jay,

      Thank you for those kind words. June was a pretty impressive month for passive income generated. My goal is to continue to make my monthly buys and even out my passive income stream more. I do not want any single company to be the major contributor of my income. Of course, that’s he challenge going forward. Thank you for sharing your thoughts.

    • Hi desidividend,

      Always appreciate your comment and continued support. Nice to know we have some stocks in common paying us for the month. I always love seeing that. Keep up the good work on your end too!

    • Hi DD,

      You said it. End of quarter months are the most fun for dividend growth investors. I always enjoy these reports the most. As you already know, I’ll keep making my monthly buys slowly building up my passive income stream share by individual share. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi DG,

      No doubt $800 is a tidy sum that can already cover quite a few monthly recurring bills. That’s the name of the game. Building up that passive income stream to eventually cover most, if not all, our monthly living expenses. Thank you for your continued support.

  4. Hi DivHut,
    Love the 42% increase over last year – Congrats! $800 is certainly going to help roll that snowball.
    Looking forward to the next quarters results but it seems you’re on track for at least $7,000 income this year which is awesome!
    Best wishes,

    • Hi DL,

      I was pretty impressed with that year over year increase. Seems like my end of quarter months are putting up the largest gains for now. With half the year gone $7K is in sight and should surpass my 2016 income by a nice margin. Thank you for your comment and continued support.

  5. Nice numbers. Long way for me to come close but it’s very motivating to see how things work out if you invest consistently. I’m proud of my own +11,7% YoY and you show us the road to follow, so everything will be better next year and the year after and … Great!

    • Hi MC,

      Well said. It doesn’t matter where you are on your dividend growth journey as long as you remain consistent with your buying, stay diversified, don’t panic sell and have a long term horizon. Congrats on your own double digit year over year gain. Thank you for commenting.

  6. That is a very impressive growth rate! Its amazing to see such a high growth rate even though the total income is creeping up to a good amount! That’s a lot of hard work to save and invest to get that kind of growth.

    Congrats.

    Hope to one day be back at a similar level. Nice to see the health sector buys as I am also quite heavy in that area right now.

    • Hi ADD,

      With each passing month I’m closer and closer to surpassing my 2016 totals which gets me excited. No doubt, many years of hard work, patience, consistency and diversity with my holdings is paying off. Keep running the DGI marathon. In time, you’ll be at these levels and beyond. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi MF,

      Always appreciate your comment and continued support. Thanks for all those tweets too! Keep the progress moving along.

    • Hi CD,

      Serious cash indeed. For me, $800 can cover quite a few monthly bills. I am very pleased with my progress over the years. Congrats on almost hitting $500. That’s also a pretty tidy sum especially for it being “earned” passively. Thank you for commenting.

  7. Nice figures. 1k$/mo is at reach 🙂 My Q2 dividends were not that bad but im just starting so nothing compared to this 🙂 What I saw is that people in dividend investin community show monthly dividend income while real picture is better on quarter basis as all us companies pay dividends on quarter basis. You cant compare June with July, but you can compare and see thr progress Q1 vs Q2 😉

    • Hi P2035,

      It’s true that quarter over quarter paints a better picture but it’s still not complete as some companies pay only once or twice a year which can skew results. I always like year over year pictures even though that’s not a perfect way to look at results either. Bottom line… keep beating your annual totals with each passive year and you know that you are headed in the right direction. Keep up the good work on your end. Dividend investing is a marathon and not a sprint. As always, I appreciate your comment.

    • Hi At,

      You said it. No complaints about seeing double digit growth year over year. The snowball continues to grow. Thank you for commenting.

    • Hi Doug,

      Those end of quarter months have the most companies paying me which is always fun to report as it means more passive income. Thank you for your comment and continued support.

    • Hi FerdiS,

      Always appreciate your support and continued encouragement. Believe me, I get excited seeing double digit year over gains and it just keeps me motivated to continue on my journey.

    • Hi charlie,

      It would be nice to finally crack the $1K mark in a month. We’ll see how the rest of 2017 unfolds. As you know I still plan to make at least one purchase every month so there’s still time to build up my dividend income for September and December. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

  8. For a portfolio as large as yours to still be seeing that kind of year over year growth is incredible. It is a credit to what you have been able to put away each month. Congratulations. Looks like you are well on your well on your way to a four digit month next time around.

    • Hi DS,

      I appreciate those kind words about my progress. I’m at this ‘game’ for about a decade so this definitely did not come overnight. Slow and steady, consistent buying and not panic selling during corrections got me here. Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.

  9. Hey Divhut great numbers you have going so far. I foresee a 1 thousand month towards the end of the year for you. I am excited for Sept and December as those 2 months will be all time highs for me. Good luck.

    • Hi EL,

      Everyone loves those end of quarter months the most. We’ll see how September and December come along. No doubt, four digits are in my future just not sure which quarter it will come. I’m patient. Been doing this for about ten years very slow and steady. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

  10. Hi Keith,
    I didn’t comment here for a while. I can just say wow! Your dividend income has skyrocketed!
    Great job! Mine is now slightly above 3000$ per year now. It’s steadily growing!

    • Hi Allan,

      Always good to hear from you. It’s slow and steady for me with my dividend income. I’m happy to see the progress I have made so far in 2017 and I hope to crack $7K in annual dividends for the year. We’ll see. Thank you for your comment and continued support.

    • Hi LOD,

      Those end of quarter months are always the most fun to report. Just keep doing what you’re doing and you’ll hit these marks and beyond. The only reason I’m at current levels of passive income is because I have been doing this for a long time. Just be consistent with your buying, don’t panic sell when things turn south and stick with solid and sustainable dividend yields. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

    • Hi R2R,

      Thank you for those kind words and continued support. Seeing a solid double digit year over year gain will always put a smile on my face. It just continues to demonstrate to me that I’m on the right path. As always, I appreciate your comment.
