Dividend Income Update – March 2017

Another month has passed by, and it’s time for me to post the dividends that Skyy earned in the month of March. 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.

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.

What you’ll see below is a list of every dividend Skyy collected over the prior month, which company paid the dividend and the amount of the dividend.

March 2017 Dividends Received

  • Pfizer (PFE) – $3.43
  • Spectra Energy (SE) – $2.55
  • Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) – $1.66
  • Emerson Electric (EMR) – $2.51
  • Chevron (CVX) – $2.28
  • Realty Income (O) – $6.74
  • Unilever (UL) – $0.70
  • Consolidated Edison (ED) – $7.39
  • Old Republic (ORI) – $3.92
  • Waste Management (WM) – $0.89
  • Health Care Partners (HCP) – $11.85
  • Frontline (FRO) – $21.07
  • BHP Billiton (BBL) – $2.56
  • Bank of America (BAC) – $1.52
  • Cornerstone Fund (CLM) – $36.05
  • Aberdeen Income Fund (FAX) – $7.90

Total dividends received during the month of March: $113.02

Crazy to think that 3 whole months have already passed in 2017! I honestly feel sometimes that the market is waiting on Trump to actually do something that he promised, but once that is found not to be true there will be a big Drop. I am still trying to get the dividend income over $100 each month, but it might take at least another 5-6 months. You just have to love with each passing week there is Fresh Cash being added to the account.

As always we are truly thankful that Skyy was able to earn $113 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 Cash Flow!

  1. Always work smarter not harder. It is a good idea to live by. Work smart now so that your dividends can work for you in the future and you don’t HAVE to work.

  2. Miracle –

    SICK total! Nice job, crossing 3 digits and collecting those checks : ) I own 4 of those companies up there and nice to see BBL paying out some cash again!


    1. Thanks Lanny! I wish I could be at your level soon but as you know slow & steady wins the race. With BBL I am glad also that they raised their Dividend, wish I would have bought more when they were in the 20’s.

  3. I’m the same way, waiting for the market to drop. However it keeps rising!

    I keep hearing now is the time to maintain dollar-cost averaging for buying right now because we just don’t know. I’ll definitely have some cash set aside for buying during the drop.

    Good job with this month of $113! Awesome Job.

  4. Hey Andrew,
    Yes I plan on doing the dca when my stocks are down and hopefully I can start getting $100 dollars a month moving forward, but time will tell.
