Total dividends received for month of September: $47.73
Wow, that’s a 114% increase over September 2015! I spoke last month about my disappointment in not posting a YOY increase due to a dividend cut from KMI. However, I think I more than made up for it this month when I more than doubled my dividend income! This was accomplished through increasing the number of shares I own and through dividend increases from Johnson & Johnson, PepsiCo., and T. Rowe Price. While I am happy to have added a new position in Amgen, Inc. I’m really more so excited by the fact that JNJ and PEP decided to return $0.05 more per share and TROW, $0.02 per share to me. All I had to do was continue to hold my shares…it’s like getting a raise for doing absolutely nothing!
At nearly $50, this is my highest paid out month to-date and I’m really excited to see what the future hold for me and my freedom fund. Stay tuned for more updates on my dividend income, as well as, updates on progress on my portfolio value.
Thanks for reading.
