Dividend Income Update June 2018

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 2018 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 2018 dividend income.


Dividend income from my taxable account totaled $792.95 up from $597.51 an increase of 32.7% from June of last year.


Dividend income from my ROTH account totaled $178.06 up from $146.82 an increase of 21.3% from this time last year.


Dividend income from my IRA account totaled $5.78 down from $71.05 from this time last year. A decrease of -91.9%. No cause for concern here as payment schedules of CCP (now SBRA) and VTR have shifted from June.


Grand total for the month of June: $976.79 an increase of 19.8% from June 2017.


Brokerage Account

Year to date dividends: $2,843.02

Total: $792.95

ROTH Account

Year to date dividends: $1,089.47

Total: $178.06

IRA Account

Year to date dividends: $451.48

Total: $5.78


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 2018 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.

  1. Hi Keith, The thing I’ve been most happy about this year are dividend increases by my portfolio companies. I’m having the best year ever in that regard. And (knock on wood), no dividend reductions in my portfolio so far in 2018. Tom

    Jim, Not tracking your dividends does not make you a weirdo. Maybe us obsessed dividend fanatics are the weird ones, not sure. Tom

  2. Good Job. So close to the 1,000 a month mark you will surpass it soon. Month after month quarter after Quarter after quarter and year after year, solid dividends always get churned out. You have an awesome dividend machine. Keep it up

  3. It is fun watching that dividend figure rise and knowing that it is not likely to fall much if at all–as opposed to the share price, which we know may, and someday will drop. I’ve been positioning my portfolio more towards income lately as retirement isn’t too far off.

  4. Solid month! Loving those YOY increases. You have a lot of similar payers like UL, JNJ, PEP, GILD. Almost $1,000 in passive income for being a loyal shareholder. You gotta love that!


  5. Awesome results Divhut! Very close to the $800 mark. I surpassed the $50 level for the first time in June. I’ve got EMR and JNJ in my portfolio as well. Cheers, Dividend Niche

  6. Looks like $1K for June was a foregone conclusion if those payment schedules hadn’t changed in your IRA account. Oh well, it will come any month now and will become a regular occurrence, I’m sure.
    I enjoyed seeing AFL lead your dividend payers. AFL has been a great investment for me over the years. It doesn’t get much attention, but continues to steadily deliver dividend growth… 35 years and counting.

  7. Keith,

    Another great month my friend! I love reading your post each month because it shows that the hard work you have been putting in over the last few years is really starting to pay off. Each dollar invested, each dividend re-invested, and each dividend increase have made receiving nearly $1,000 this month possible. Keep up the great work and keep on inspiring us all.


  8. Good report Div Hut. Congrats on the double-digit increase from last year. I really like your approach to investing. Just contribute on a monthly basis and let the experts worry about what might happen. That’s the approach I take as well.

  10. Hey Keith
    Again a strong month, congrats! And what an amazing list with wonderful businesses providing you with good organic dividend growth. Happy to have you as fellow shareholder in Unilever, PepsiCo.
