Dividend summary – June 2015

Looking at dividends received though the month and summarizing the numbers at the end of the month is such a great feeling because dividends represent real tangible income. Let’s take a look at the dividends received in June 2015.

After a slow May, I was hoping for a great month in June and it turned out to be one. It was not a record setting like March, but a close one. June 2015 represents my 3rd highest month ever after March and April of this year.

Dividend summary – May 2015

Looking at dividends received though the month and summarizing the numbers at the end of the month is such a great feeling because dividends represent real tangible income. Let’s take a look at the dividends received in May 2015.

After a record-setting month in March and a equally nice April, I knew May was going to be a slow month. I had barely crossed the $100 mark in February.  Continue reading

Dividend summary – April 2015

Looking at dividends received though the month and summarizing the numbers at the end of the month is such a great feeling because dividends represent real tangible income. I started focusing on dividend investing early last year and therefore, this is going to be the first full year where I can see the benefits of investments from last year. Starting this blog and documenting my progress has been really a great factor to keep me focused on investing regularly and aggressively. So let’s take a look at the dividends received in April 2015.

After a record-setting month in March, I was looking forward to April’s dividends. Typically 1st my dividends are highest in 1st month of the quarter, but after looking at March’s record numbers, I realized that 1st month of the quarter won’t be high anymore. But I was still looking forward to the numbers to see what I earned for the month.

Dividend summary – March 2015

Looking at dividends received though the month and summarizing the numbers at the end of the month is such a great feeling because dividends represent real tangible income. I started focusing on dividend investing early last year and therefore, this is going to be the first full year where I can see the benefits of investments from last year. Starting this blog and documenting my progress has been really a great factor to keep me focused on investing regularly and aggressively. So let’s take a look at the dividends received in March 2015.

After a wonderful and smashing start to dividends in January, February 2015 turned out to be a slow month for me in terms of dividends. But it was just a short-term dip and my dividends bounced back big time in March 2015 raking in over $200 again and the highest ever yet. I received $261.00 in March which is the highest ever yet surpassing the previous record $235.85 set in January 2015.

Typically the 1st month of the quarter is the highest one for me, but March did turn out to be a great month. I received dividends from 16 different stocks/ETFs which is also a record for a single month. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the dividends received in March.  Continue reading

Dividend summary – February 2015

I started focusing on dividend investing early last year and therefore, this is going to be first full year where I can see the benefits of investments from last year. Starting this blog and documenting my progress has been really a great factor to keep me focused on investing regularly and aggressively. So let’s take a look at the dividends received in February 2015.

After a wonderful and smashing start to dividends in January, February 2015 turned out to be a slow month for me in terms of dividends. I just received $100.42 in Feb which is far less than over $230 received in Jan. Of course, the 1st month of the quarter is always my best one and the middle month is my slowest month. Towards the middle of the month, I wasn’t sure if I will even break the $100 mark. In 3rd quarter of 2014, I crossed the three figure mark for all months of the quarter and I sure didn’t want to break the streak and go back to two figures – especially when I am marching towards hitting the $200 mark in all months of the quarter.  Continue reading

Dividend summary – January 2015

The first month of 2015 has gone by rather quickly and it is time to review the dividends received for the first month of the year. I started really focusing on dividend investing early last year and therefore, this is going to be first full year where I can see the benefits of investments from last year. Prior to last year, I was just investing on and off, but never had any concrete goals. Therefore, I was not really tracking or comparing the numbers to see the progress. Starting this blog and documenting my progress has been really a great factor to keep me focused on investing regularly and aggressively. So let’s take a look at the dividends received in January 2015.
