You are currently viewing Dividend Income Report for July 2017

July 2017 is finished and done. I hope every US reader had a great Independence Day and every dividend investor had a good month. The heatwave hitting the Pacific Northwest this week has impacted my productivity a bit, so I’ve been feeling lethargic and not very energetic. So sorry for the slight delay in getting this post out the door this week.

How was my dividend income for July? Well let’s do the numbers and see
AWP $ 45.00
BGY $ 38.00*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.00*
CLM $ 46.52*
CODI $144.00
DHY $ 38.50
DMF $ 12.30
DSM $ 22.83
EAD $ 9.57
EDF $ 45.00*
EHI $ 27.00
EXG $114.00*
NCV $ 45.50
OIA $ 4.30
PFN $ 36.00
PNNT $ 81.00
RA $ 69.85
VFL $ 15.00
ZTR $ 33.90
TOTAL $871.27

* Includes Return of Capital

Yeah!! Another all time monthly record has been made, with July’s dividend income coming in at $871.27! The quarterly dividend distributions from CODI and PNNT made quite a difference in the month’s total dividend income. The $900 month is getting sooooo close now. I can almost reach out and touch it!

However, July wasn’t all peaches and cream. The month did see a dividend cut, as EHI trimmed its dividend back by 10%, from 7.5 cents to 6.75 cents. It’s a slight nick, but it’s certainly felt.

Overall, July was a great month. That $900 month just keeps getting closer and I look forward to reaching that goal.

    DQ –

    Dang! Almost $900 in July?! That’s absurd and nice job. Jealous for sure. Looks like you have it spread quite well. I do not know many or own those names, but it seems to be working out fairly well, despite the div cut.

      Thanks for visiting Lanny! Back in the early years of my dividend investing quest, having an $800 month seemed like a fantasy. But month after month and year after year I consistently invested in my dividend portfolio to reach the point where an $800 month is almost routine (I say almost because 2 of this year’s 7 months have been under $800). Keep investing regularly and consistently and in time your monthly dividend income will routinely reach heights that you can only dream of right now.

    Rock on Quest. I had a record month in July too! I’m still behind on my goal, but think there is a chance since I foresee a few big months left this year. We will see. GREAT work and thanks for sharing,

      Thanks for visiting Dan! I’m glad that July was kind to you too. Being behind on one’s goal is never fun, but it’s a great motivator to push harder to reach that milestone you desire to attain. Having a win like July’s income is great because a win prevents any discouragement and keeps you in game, hungry for more. Keep at it!

    Very impressive results. They say July is a slow month for dividends. Not for you!

      Thanks IH! Yep, July was very good to me. I hope August will be a good income month too. 🙂

    Wow what an excellent month Div Quest. My July wasn’t even close to being as impressive. Looking forward to your August report.

      Thanks for the visit Dividend Portfolio! Yep, July was pretty good. But with payouts coming from WDR and FGB in August, dividend income should be even better. 🙂
