Dividend Income Update – May 2017

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

May 2017 Dividends Received

  • AT&T (T) – $10.78
  • Apple (AAPL) – $6.55
  • Petmed (PETS) – $2.17
  • Caterpillar (CAT) – $1.62
  • Kinder Morgan (KMI) – $9.08
  • Realty Income (O) – $6.80
  • Procter & Gamble (PG) – $7.36
  • Green Plains Partners (GPP) – $5.28
  • Health Care Partners (HCP) – $11.98
  • Enterprise Products Partners (EPD) – $4.41
  • Cornerstone Fund (CLM) – $37.04
  • Aberdeen Income Fund (FAX) – $8.01

Total dividends received during the month of May: $111.08

Crazy that half of the year is almost over, it still feels like the year should be in the first few months. Just like last year time seems to be flying by, but this time the Markets are at all time highs. No matter what the Market is doing one just has to love the continuous Cash Flow through the ups and downs.

As always we are truly thankful that Skyy was able to earn $111 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!

Work Hard or Work Smart?

  1. Your dividend portfolio progress was fun to see (I came across your blog by accident via Google search). Just wanted to say well done, although I am curious why you decided to included dividend funds and not just build an all single stock portfolio… anyways best of luck growing it!

  2. Hey Mark! Thanks and for my story I want to document everything I do for when I do make it to Financial Freedom and if that includes dividend paying funds; so be it!

    Thanks Again!
