Another month has passed by, and it’s time for me to post the dividends that Skyy earned in the month of November. It’s hard to argue the success of long-term dividend growth investing when you can slowly and surely see dividend income rise over time and get closer to covering your family expenses.
November was actually one of Skyy’s best months and hopefully we can continue in the following months. I hope December brings her a great month but as we all know the dividend income will fluctuate on any given month.
I hope these monthly dividend income reports provide inspiration for any investors out there that are just starting out. It shows that it’s possible to one day pay for monthly expenses with dividends, which would provide an investor opportunities and freedom to pursue other interests than full-time work.
November 2015 Dividends Received
- AT&T (T) – $9.59
- Apple (AAPL) – $5.25
- Petmed (PETS) – $1.84
- Breitburn (BBEP) – $4.64
- Kinder Morgan (KMI) – $10.28
- Realty Income (O) – $3.90
- Procter & Gamble (PG) – $6.74
- Health Care Partners (HCP) – $5.89
Total dividends received during the month of November: $48.13
I’m truly thankful that Skyy was able to earn $48 this month without lifting a finger and continuing to be a great daughter. She did nothing to earn this money except for make great decisions with past capital. Decisions like investing in high quality companies that reward her as a loyal shareholder with a piece of the profit.
My goal is for Skyy to receive $50 in dividend income in one month during the year of 2015. Currently we have not reached that mark, but hopefully it can be accomplished in December.
