June Dividend Income

After 34 years of clocking in and out of work and religiously saving 10% annually in my 401K every year, in good times and bad as well as investing in a separate brokerage account during that time period and contributing to a Roth IRA for the last 4 years. I have decided to share my monthly dividend income to show what regular saving and investing can accomplish.

For the month of June I made $4,581.27; an increase of 59.64% versus this time last year. What a difference a year makes, I remember last June was with all the dividend cuts so a massive jump compared to then was not entirely a surprise.  Two big contributors compared to last year was receiving my BEP/BEPC and NEWT payments in June instead of July and of course all those fantastic dividend raises announced earlier this year really kicked in.

On the home front my expenses have remained the same which means my savings rate has stayed steady at 24.9%. I did get out this month and enjoyed a meal (twice) at a restaurant and even went out to the pub one evening to enjoy some time with the boys.  It is a still a far cry from normalcy, but it felt good.  I had a vacation scheduled for the last week of June but with the sweltering heat it scuttled our plans, so we stayed home and enjoyed our pool. I still have quite a bit of vacation time so maybe August we’ll try again.

There were no violent swings in the markets but the end of July and August is the traditional vacation time for Wall Street so it will be interesting to see if we have light trading volume and volatile markets or if COVID restrictions will mute this affect. As far as a watch list, there are no screaming value plays however I did add some pipeline MLPs to my watch list.  For July my plan is to continue to just monitor 50+ stocks and buy in small allotments when an opportunity presents itself.

  1. Awesome YoY growth, SDG… that’s the way to do it. That’s not an easy thing to do given such a large base you are working from.
    I loved the size of the JNJ and MSFT dividends. Those are some AAA companies right there.
    My favorite dividend in the list had to be the one from MPX. It all counts though, so I was glad to see it listed. What’s the story with that one?
    Well done… keep it going.

    • MPX…that makes me laugh every time I see it. I sold out of the position not realizing it was paying out a dividend so even though I exited the position Fidelity reinvested the dividend payout into a fractional share.

      That MSFT investment by the way only cost me $2800, I was lucky enough to buy 100 shares back in 2013 at $27.76. I remember turning off the DRIP on that when it got above $50/share because I thought it was too expensive at the time, regret that decision 😂.
