Dividend Income Update – April 2017

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

April 2017 Dividends Received

  • General Electric (GE) – $10.11
  • Montana Dakota Utilities (MDU) – $6.08
  • Cisco (CSCO) – $3.10
  • Coca-Cola (KO) – $3.95
  • Chimera (CIM) – $80.48
  • Philip Morris (PM) – $2.22
  • Realty Income (O) – $6.78
  • Diageo (DEO) – $2.41
  • Wal-Mart (WMT) – $1.59
  • Aberdeen Income Fund (FAX) – $7.95
  • Cornerstone Fund (CLM) – $36.52

Total dividends received during the month of April: $160.49

I won’t say to much for this post since the markets have been flat for the past 2-3 months, but we will see what the Rest of the year will bring us. I will say since I started Dividend Investing 27 months ago $160 has been an All-Time High, which the Family has been extremely happy about. Through the years you can actually see the continuous growth of Cash Flow that our companies are producing.

As always we are truly thankful that Skyy was able to earn $160 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!
