Dividend Income Update September 2019

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 September totals I see that my year over year progress is moving at a nice clip. Now that three quarters of 2019 are 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 September 2019 dividend income.

Dividend income from my taxable account totaled $1,947.57 up from $809.61 an increase of 140.6% from September of last year.

Dividend income from my ROTH account totaled $184.62 up from $172.41 an increase of 7.1% from this time last year.

Dividend income from my IRA account totaled $5.72 up from $5.70 from this time last year. A increase of 0.4%.

Grand total for the month of September: $2,137.91 an increase of 116.4% from September 2018.

First, let’s address the huge jump from September last year. As you can see this was almost exclusively the result of that massive $987.08 dividend from BP which was from Mrs. DivHut’s account and now part of our total combined joint accounts which we consolidated earlier this year when we moved to Schwab. If you have been following my blog for a while you know that I never owned any energy companies but clearly that has changed now. Not sure why Mrs. DivHut went so heavy into BP but I do know that it is a long term holding of hers. Either way, it is providing a nice boost to our annual income.

Also, the last month or so saw some sells as some REITs were shuttled from our brokerage account. Now only our IRAs hold REITs.

So there you have it. 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 final quarter of 2019 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 September dividend income? Please let me know below.

    • Hi MDD,

      We all love those end of quarter reports. They are the most fun to write and read. Seems like collectively we are all doing great jobs padding our passive income streams.

    • Hi HHaWG,

      I think we can all find inspiration from our collective DGI community. Seems like every month someone is setting a new passive income record. Keep up the good work on your end!

    • Hi Doug,

      You could see the free trade phenom coming. It was always a race to zero but no one could have predicted that it would come this fast. At least I had about six months of free trades and now all accounts, mine, Mrs., baby and retirement are all under one roof. Happy to be a LYB and D shareholder with you. LYB really bounced nicely from its recent lows.

    • Hi DG,

      You said it. We all suffer through losses every now and then so when a ‘W’ is thrown your way, take it! I never liked the long term prospects for the energy industry but I guess Mrs. DH had other ideas. I think she became enamored with the ideas of earning a passive income stream and purchase after purchase coupled with automatic reinvestment for over a decade created this monster. She just hitched her wagon to BP.

    • Hi MBR,

      Thank you for your comment and support. I have held YUM for a long time. In fact, it was one of my first DGI stocks I bought. Keep stacking those shares one by one and grow your passive income stream.

    • Hi 10YT,

      Glad you enjoyed. For me investing is all about creating an entity that can provide you an income. Ideally that income covers all your monthly expenses but if it never does, that’s OK too. Who would complain about having 10%, 30%, 50% or 80% of their monthly expenses covered passively?

    • Hi Passivecanadianincome,

      She never worked for BP but I think she became enamored with the ideas of earning a passive income stream and purchase after purchase coupled with automatic reinvestment for over a decade created this monster.

  1. DH –

    AHHHHHH Heck yes! Look at that, insanely amazing.. you were one of the earlier bloggers that started at around the same time Bert & I started writing. So crazy seeing how far we have all come.

    Yes, that BP added just a tad to your income : ) I know you both aren’t complaining!


    • Hi DD,

      It’s a total dedication to this investment strategy that got us here. DGI is a marathon and for those that stick with it during good times and bad will be rewarded in the future. BP is the monster in the portfolio now. I know I should trim.

    • Hi PIV,

      Sometimes you cannot ignore a really juicy yield. Just look at MO in recent weeks. Looking forward to a strong 2019 finish and still not sure what to do about that huge BP position at this time.

    • Hi Dfl,

      That BP is way out sized relative to my other holdings. I know I’ll have to address it in the future. I used to hold PPL a while back. Was a good income producer for a long time but I sold. I still like it as a long term holding though. Maybe I’ll buy back in if it dips.

  2. You have quite a few stocks (AFL, SO, D) creeping up on $100 payouts, DivHut. I can’t wait to see what next September’s report will look like. Triple digits all around I’d imagine.
    As for this year, a nice jump indeed in the Brokerage account thanks to Mrs. DivHut’s BP stock. Given that you aren’t an Energy stock guy, are you inclined to sell any of it for diversification purposes?
    Nice work as always!

    • Hi ED,

      Those stocks you mention used to be some of my biggest income producers but now with BP in the mix they seem overshadowed. I am looking to trim BP a bit eventually to get things more balanced but not at current levels.

  3. Wow, that’s got to be some kind of growth % record with those totals! Congrats – that BP position must be huge. nice jump indeed in the Brokerage account thanks to Mrs. DivHut’s BP stock.

    • Hi deepak,

      Always great seeing higher and higher passive income roll into your account. That BP position is huge and I wouldn’t mind reducing it a bit in the future.
