You are currently viewing Dividend Income Report: July 2018

What?? July is over already? Wow, the summer is just whizzing by. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we’re just coming out of a heat wave that was not much fun. Our house doesn’t have central AC installed, so we get by on just fans and a portable AC unit. It would be nice to have central air conditioning, but we only need it for just a week or two every year, so it’s hard to justify the expense of upgrading when more important upgrades are needed elsewhere in the house.

So how did my dividend income fare in July? Let’s do the numbers and find out:

AWP $ 50.00
BGY $ 38.00*
CHW $ 21.00*
CIK $ 22.50*
CLM $ 47.30
CODI $144.00
DHY $ 35.00
DMF $ 10.50
DSM $ 19.25
EAD $ 8.32
EDF $ 45.00*
EHI $ 24.40
EXG $114.00*
NCV $ 45.50
NRZ $ 90.00
OIA $ 4.30
PFN $ 36.00
PNNT $ 81.00
RA $ 69.85
VFL $ 15.00
ZTR $ 33.90
TOTAL $954.82

* Includes Return of Capital

That’s a nice total! While not as good as May’s record-breaking $1001.42, it is my second best month ever, so that counts for something.

I’m happy to report no dividends were cut this month, so that’s certainly a plus for July.

One pleasant surprise: CIK raised its monthly dividend from 2.2 cents per share to 2.25 cents (a 2.27% increase). This raises my monthly CIK payout from $22.00 to $22.50. Yes, an extra 50 cents per month isn’t exactly big bucks, but I’ll take it. 🙂

Overall, a tiny dividend increase, no dividend cuts, and my second best monthly total makes July a pretty good month indeed. I wish every month could be this nice.

    Good job. 954.00 a month is not to shabby

      Thanks for visiting Doug! Yep, $954 is definitely not shabby at all. Just a few years ago, a $900+ month was something I could only imagine, and now it happens twice per quarter. With time and regular consistent investing, you too can have such dividend income.

    Quest –

    Holy crap. Almost $1,000 in July, is insane. Nice job and even removing the ROCs, your dividend income is massive.

      Thanks for visiting Lanny! It’s taken ten years for me to get to this point, and only once have I had a $1000+ month, so it’s been a long, slow road for me to reach this point. Invest regularly, and in time you’ll see your dividend income steadily rise to meet and beat my monthly totals.
