2017 July Dividends have arrived !

2017 JULY DIVIDENDS Welcome to the 2017 July Dividends Report ! Summer is half over but the dividend income stream doesn’t care what time of the year it is. Seems like just yesterday I posted a record total for dividends (see June Dividends here). The great thing about passive dividend income after you have been going for a little bit, is it pays every month. Every dollar I earn gets back to work immediately as more shares. It is literally a machine that is continually working. It is the gift that keeps on giving. Sure there are times when a company...

2017 June Dividends are here, a new record !!

2017 June Dividends I am a little late posting 2017 June Dividends because I was on vacation over the 4th of July week. I spent a week in Cape Cod golfing, swimming and generally relaxing. It was a great week and I hardly looked at the stock market or thought for one second about my portfolio. It is on auto-pilot and I am pleased to say doing very nicely. Take this month’d dividends as an example. I cracked the $1000 barrier for the first time!  Part of the reason is because I got the first semi-annual special dividend from...

2017 May Dividends The sun is shining, I am playing golf weekly , and Dividends are pouring in.  It is hard to be in a bad mood right now as there is so much to be thankful for.

Additionally, the dividends are pouring in every month now and I am feeling pretty good after seeing the May dividend totals. The Feb-May-Aug-Nov cycle is doing fine. I am about to crack the monthly milestone of $500...

April Dividends 2017 are here !

April Dividends April dividends are here. April is in the books and saw more increases as well as a few dividend raises. We started the month with snow here in the Boston area. I was feeling like golf season would never arrive. Luckily it melted quickly and I was able to get an April round in. The dividends also got better as the month went on. I saw a nice Y-O-Y increase and I feel like I am on pace to achieve the years goal. It will be close but I am staying focused and pouring as much cash as possible into...
